Battle of opinions!

Today a friend asked Trump supporters to de-friend him. I did so gladly, as I am not one to let others tell me how I should feel, speak or vote. It was his way or no way and anyone objecting to his opinion was guilty of everything he said Trump was. Murder, rapist, ect, his arrogance is disgusting.

A mature person realizes that not everyone is going to agree with them. They don’t try to pick a fight; they accept that each person has a right to his or her opinion. Before this incident, I felt that he was more intelligent than me. I actually respected him and his opinion on many things. Now I see that he is immature and nowhere as intelligent as I gave him credit for!

I never made one mean remark against his choice, but he still wanted to make a mole hill into a mountain. I suppose politics brings the worse out in some people!

Where is the sanity today?

I have never seen such anger in the USA in my 60 years of living! Friends are jumping down the throats of friends because of the difference in opinion. I’ve lost several friends during elections because they didn’t like my response to their railing against my choices. I am not mad at them and will always respond to them if they contact me, I seriously doubt that will happen though.

There is always a winner and a loser in any challenge. Both sides need to realize that there can’t be two winners and no losers. Life simply doesn’t work this way! I am a republican, I want my party to win because I believe in them as much as those who are democrats, but common sense says I may not win. I will adjust to the results as long as it is done with legitimacy.

This generation has damaged the children. They aren’t taught that there are a winner and a loser. Everyone gets a reward even if they fail. How can these children learn to deal with real life? It is no wonder there are so many suicides among young people, in the real world everyone isn’t nice. We are doing our children no favors in teaching them that everything is always going to be peaches and cream!.
