I have noticed this is a growing trend. People don't want to talk about facts or come up with a resolution.. they just want to be right. They will flop subjects or sides mid conversation just to save face. They make the most inflammatory comments just to confuse and befuddle their "opponent". No one wants to help, no one wants to resolve.. people only want to win... even if by winning everyone loses.
Right now all that we are showing is that we are just as hateful as the other side. I don't think that's the message that we want to put forward. No one wants to be told that they're stupid, that they're wrong, or that they made a crappy choice. People are going to defend their choice till their last breath to save face. Instead of pointing out all the reasons we hate Trump. Instead of pointing out all the reasons that his supporters are evil and stupid, let's concentrate on finding people who represent the things that we want. Let's show ourselves and Trump supporters another way.
We treat drug addicts like criminals.. and believe that even criminals should be allowed guns... and yet.. no one wants to help any of these people. I'm not even talking about politicians. They are a small part of what this country is made up of. We need to start making changes ourselves. We need to start thinking about ALL of our citizens. We need to think about addicts... and the school children who have to practice safety measures in case of shootings. We need to think about the lives that we are leaving our children.
And to be honest, I don't really care which political figure says what about it. Who condones, who condemns, who ignores is not my problem. We are not a country of politicians. We are a country of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and children. We need to speak up. We need to not let hate, fear, and anger control the media and the tone of our world.
I had an interesting conversation with a Trump supporter today. She said that she wasn't worried about all the horrible things that he says because she doesn't think that they're going to happen. Really? So, you're glad a person who wants to take food and healthcare away from children, women, and elderly is in office because you're pretty sure the Democrats won't let it happen?
Is there anyone that Trump hasn't offended, belittled, or betrayed? Any why is this so acceptable? Why is it that the F**king President of the United States is still being heralded for being a callus bully? And why would anyone be OK with their children growing up to think that he is something to aspire to be?
I have never in my life seen a person who is so incapable of taking responsibility. I have never seen anyone that is so quick to cast blame at anyone or anything but themself. I have never seen anyone who just lies for the sake of making themself feel better. I have never seen anyone who needs to toot their own horn and pat their own back at the expense of other. I have never seen anyone so clueless about the way the world works... and I could never have imagined such a person in office.
What we are opposed to is setting up arbitrary rules about checking IDs on grandpa who fought in WWII, but hasn't driven since the Bush administration. Apparently those vets aren't American enough to get a say in the today's government.
Of course the point of insurance is to get the healthy people in the same pool as the sick people to keep all of their costs similar, but of course the right-wing Conservative Christians feel they should never help their neighbors but should hoard all of their money and let other's fend for themselves.
Most people want to help the hungry and the destitute. Most people would give to the poor or take in the refugee once they got to know the person. The problem is with labels there are no individuals. There are only Muslims, Mexicans, Illegals, Republicans, Democrats, men, women ... anyone different than me.
