I just heard about a young kid basically, (only 18) who was killed for his conservative politics. Whatever happened to reasoned discussion and debate?
I hate how divided my country has become, I’m sick to death of it, honestly. According to the murderer, his victim was a right wing extremist.
I’ve been around long enough to know that word/phrase gets thrown around far too easily these days though.
I am totally disgusted w/the continual rot I see in American politics. I Love my country, always will, but we absolutely and desperately need a massive house cleaning.
I care more about American elected officials sanity/competence than I do about what party they claim affiliation with. If more people voted for sanity over party, we’d (I think) be much better off.
Hitler & the Nazis were LITERAL genocidal nutjobs, needless to say, I get tired of hearing my fellow American citizens calling anyone they disagree w/politically a Nazi.
I’ve heard it all too often, and I’m SURE (no matter how fervently you disagree w/a fellow citizen) they are not (most likely) genocidal maniacs.
I’ve said my piece, just something worth thinking about.
How well do you keep up w/the positions of elected officials on various issues? Whether you agree w/their positions or not is another question and discussion for another day.
What I want from the next President of the United States is that said person be intelligent, strong, moral, and care about the country. I don’t think any of these things are too much to ask for. I don’t expect perfection, because none of us live up to that, but be a reasonably decent human.
