LRC Tees launches a new political savvy, stylish t-shirt line creating a medium for self-expression and awareness


Left Right Centre Tees, otherwise know as LRC Tees, launches a new line of politically-inspired, stylish tee shirts designed to create social awareness of political beliefs across party lines. The tees allow for individuals to express their beliefs, while poking a little fun with a touch of sarcasm. The tees are angled towards all three U.S. parties (Democrats, Republicans, and Independents).

Founded by Aaron Schumm, a New York City based entrepreneur, the t-shirts were inspired by a personal passion for political thought leadership and a further understanding of individual viewpoints, regardless of which political party the other is associated with, coupled with a strong interest in the fashion industry.

“I’m a sarcastic person by nature, and always try to push things a bit in life, no matter what it is. It’s been fun to come up with some slogans and hear what other ideas people have, pushing the boundaries and making others aware that the person next to you may have a very different stance, but it’s okay to talk about what you may or may not feel strongly about. Everyday, I strive to put myself in the other person’s shoes, trying to understand where they are coming from, regardless of my personal beliefs. People should be open about it. Talk about it. And work on forming solutions, rather than avoiding sensitive issues,” said Aaron Schumm. “Having been exposed to the lack of liberties outside of the United States, it’s increasingly apparent that all too often U.S. citizens take for granted the liberties we’re afforded. Politics can be frustrating, but we need to work get involved and shape this country.”

With the 2012 elections approaching, there is a guarantee of divisiveness and heated debates. That’s the beauty of democracy! People will never entirely agree on a set of beliefs. However, it is extremely important to learn, understand, and respect each other’s beliefs, while forming one’s own views based on all the information available. At the same time, voters can still have fun with it, crack a smile or spark up a conversation.
