So, the other day I was talking to a friend who happens to be a Trump supporter. He started talking about Muslims, and how we need to get them out of the country and keep them out. Then he went on to criticize Liberals and their “Tolerance” of Muslims, saying that if they love them so much that they (The Liberals) are traitors to the country and should leave and go to the middle east!

This whole discussion pissed me off, but I bit my tongue and kept quiet. Why? Because when it comes to friends and family I don’t talk politics or religion. I refuse to allow Trump to tear my world apart! Still, it pissed me off! He’s not the first person I have heard make that comment or one similar to it either. Where do Republicans/Conservatives get off telling us to leave the country?

You know what? You know why I’m not leaving the country to go to the middle east? Because I love America! I love everything about this country! Especially the rights and freedoms that this country was built on! Including the right to freedom of religion! This right allows for Christians, Muslims, Atheists or even Pastafarians to believe what they want! I love the country and the freedoms it gives! I love the country just the way it is, and the way it always has been! It’s the Republican Conservatives who are trying to change it into something it was never meant to be! It’s THEM who hates what the country stands for…So, maybe take a bit of your own damn advice…If you don’t like the country or the rights that it provides, then get the fuck out! There’s plenty of other countries out there that strip their citizens of religious rights!

Hell, North Korea has almost a non-existent Muslim community! So, get your bags packed and don’t let lady liberty’s foot kick your ass on the way out. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_Korea

election-2016

The 2016 election is almost over, and I have to say: I am really glad to see it go! This has been the worst election that I can recall! It’s caused friends to become enemies and family members to turn their back on family members! It’s bloody! Every American has an opinion, and everyone is passionate about theirs. Which is insane, because both parties are horrible options!

I admit, I did vote for Hillary, but not because I support her! I think she will hurt and damage our country! However, I think Trump will damage the country more! Now, not everyone will agree with that! Some believe that Trump will do less damage, and while I disagree with you; I still respect your opinion. The hardcore supporters though? The ones who feel that Trump or Hillary will lead the country into a golden age of perfection? That the country will rise to a better position than it is in now under the watchful eye of one of these two potential presidents? You guys be crazy!

Look, no matter who wins or loses, the country is screwed anyway! Stop cutting your friends and family off just because they think one person will do less damage than the other! If you have 2 bulls and 2 china shops, and one person thinks the brown bull will do less damage than the black bull…is that a reason to make that person your enemy? No, that’s just stupid. Also, cutting off people who are close to you because they don’t share your political view is stupid.

Bottom line: Stupidity isn’t based on who you are voting for. Stupidity is how you treat people with different views than you….Don’t be stupid.
