In case you didn’t get my bad title, it’s a fusion of the words “political” + “idiots”. You all know why I’m posting about this, but if you don’t, you’re probably a Politiot.
The number of rude, disrespectful comments I’ve seen all over the internet over the past couple days is absolutely ridiculous. I’m not going to put my personal political views into this post, but I will say this. When I think of AMERICA, I think of:
The list goes on, but I think you get the gist of what I think America stands for. Good things. The freedom to do and be what we want. The freedom to say what we want, vote, etc etc etc. Why though, when we have such freedom, are we so disrespectful towards each other? Here are some things I’ve seen floating around my facebook feed:
“If you support Obama, delete me as a friend.” Well, whether I am an Obama supporter or not, I deleted her as a friend. If you can’t even be FACEBOOK FRIENDS with someone who has different views that you, good luck ever having friends. I’ve known this person since I was a young child, but it didn’t bother me one bit to not associate myself with someone like that.
“Looks like the end of the world is upon us after all.” Really? The end of the world? A little dramatic if you ask me. America is still America after the past 4 years of Obama. Bye bye, don’t want to associate myself with such pessimism and stupidity.
“Rest in peace, America.” I have no worlds for this. If you have that little faith in our country, then do us all a favor and leave.
Well let me just tell you this. Whether Mitt Romney or Obama had won, America would still be America, we would still be lucky enough to live in this great country, we would still have our rights and freedom. You want to know what’s going to “tear this country down” or “drive it into the ground”? American citizens. The disrespect we all show to one another, the hate, and the pessimism.
Let’s talk about the word HATE. When you hear it, what do you think? Is the first word that comes to mind when you hear the word hate “America”? Because it probably should be, at least this month. The word hate should elicit bad emotions. But why, in such a great country, are we so damn hateful?
It’s been said that exit polling showed that somewhere around 40% of people who voted were “moderates”. This political divide that all the hate is creating does not reflect that. It’s creating more and more extremism and dividing the entire country. We’re just a group of whiny b*tches and sore losers.
To summarize: Obama won. Get over it. And please, in 4 years, vote for whoever you want, but accept the fact that whoever wins is who the MAJORITY of the country wants to run the US of A. Deal with it without the hate and disrespect, because that’s why America is going downhill. Turn the hate into…
LOVE. Love your friends no matter what their political views. Love your country, love your family, love your neighbors and peers.. stop hating people over something so petty as who they voted for.
Stop all of this:
AND BE A LITTLE MORE
