I'm feeling like I have some stupid questions but I think this one might be different.
I have a cousin who is now married to a Marine in the states. Her husband says they have some unwritten rule that you don't get political, if you have an issue with government keep it to yourself and see what happens next election. He doesn't discuss political issues at all, he has no opinion on whatever is going on. Politics just never enters his mind.
I was wondering today after talking to him if there was something like that here, where politics is not your problem. I would assume having an opinion would be valid since politics affects The Forces greatly. It could just be a marine thing.
Thanks for putting up with me.
