Today things are ugly and I can no longer succumb to it. I believe I have figured out this political whirlwind. It is ugly. It is hate. We need to work together. We need dialogue. We need political compassion.
Liberals pick on every little thing Trump and his Administration do. I completely get it. I’m a liberal, but I’m starting to see the bigger picture.
Conservatives support Trump and pick on everything Liberals do. It’s a hateful world. Why can’t we all just get along? Why can’t we agree to disagree?
I was getting to a point of obsession. I was reading every point my Liberal supporters wrote. I began to notice the negativity. I did see the one sided reporting. Then, I would read the Conservative side and there is less news as they don’t report all things Trump says (because yes, it is an embarrassment). It’s a strange “political whirlwind” that all humanity is buying into.
I’m done. What is done is done. Mr. Donald Trump is our 45th President. He is NOT the best, but he won by default and there is nothing we can do about it. Yes, we can protest. Yes, we can resist. Yes, we can attempt to impeach him. But will any of these things change our world? No. If we impeach Trump, his administration will still be in office. So, what can we do during these hateful times? During 2017-2020?
I believe in getting our voices heard (via protests, e-mails and letters sent to our Congress), but the most important thing to do during this hateful time is to love one another. It’s hard when there is hardly a gray side. It’s either black or white. Liberal or Conservative.
We need to use all of our political energy to get ready for 2020. Let’s get our ducks in order. If you are a Conservative and believe Trump is “making America great again”, bless your soul. You will only learn as time goes on. But, you need to stop hating Liberals. Accept what is and do your part as an American. America is about freedom, so let the Liberals do what they will do. Try to put your feet in their shoes. Stop all the hate. That’s it.
If you’re a Liberal, stop attacking Conservatives. Just like us, they have the freedom to speak their voices as do we. We have to be the role models for our future. We have to show compassion and kindness.
I can only do my part and it’s very tough. As a Liberal, I have gotten asked if I’m even legal! This is where we are today! It’s sad! (for the record, I’m 8th or 9th generation. My family was part of the Mexican land before we lost to America. A treaty was signed that allowed those Mexicans to continue to live on their homes and become U.S. Citizens once the two countries were divided. My family was part of that treaty, so, yes, I’m legal). As a Liberal, I’m called a “whiner, dumb and stupid” Is this really American? No. Is this good for our Country? No. Then STOP!
I have read on social media sites that spew hate. Lets accept what is. Lets do what can to make America great again and go from there. We already know whose in charge. We know what we need to do. Other than that, lets kill everyone else with love, kindess, hugs and smiles.
