The craziest part of the whole thing is that we are not actually a minority. We make up up more than 50% of the population. There is no reason for this. We are the ones who raise the future generation. We are the ones that teach boys and men how to treat others. How is this the norm? Well, sadly we tend to think of ourselves as competition instead of being each other's biggest champions.
Adults spend a lot of time arguing about their rights. The right to have giant killing machines, the right to be able to say what they feel, the right to own or have or do... these kids don't care about your rights to things.. these kids care about their right to live. These kids are literally saying enough is enough. It has been almost 20 years since Columbine and nothing of real consequence has been done. There has been no laws passed to keep children safe. It has been over 5 years since Sandy Hook... a mass attack that killed dozens of babies and nothing was done. NOTHING!. How is that possible?
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.
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.
Most people think that Planned Parenthood is an abortion clinic and that's all they do there. When there is discussions about birth control people start a tirade about how they don't want to pay for other people to use their tax dollars to abort babies as a form of birth control. There is a post going about of people calling PP and asking them about pre-natal care, a service that is not provided at most locations, and therefore assumed that there is no other services that women need.
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.
