Then there's the TV coverage. The screaming. The distortions. The taking of things out of context.
And it's all starting to make me confused(er) and cranky(er). So what I want to say to all of you people that are making my life miserable is this:
It's not your POLITICS that I don't like, it's your BEHAVIOR that I have a problem with.
I am willing to hear anyone, with ANY point of view. I am certainly not going to think less of someone simply because they disagree with me. And I think we would ALL agree that these decisions we make this election season are important ones. But is it not possible to feel passionately without acting rude, demeaning and hateful? If you feel strongly, even fervently about one particular way of doing things or one candidate, can you PLEASE express it with dignity and respect for others? Human Decency 101. Hope you didn't cut class. We are all in this together, and I, for one, would like the finger-pointing and name-calling to stop. That's what I have my kids for.
