Most who know me, know that politics aren't my area of expertise. I know what I believe, I research candidates, and I vote my conscience. I am a conservative through and through, with no qualms about it. And, though I'm not usually overly-vocal, I am going to have a mini-rant today.
I don't mind if people disagree with me. Honestly, a lot of people do...a lot of people I love and who are great friends of mine. And why we're able to be friends and to love each other through political arguments or debates is because we respect each other and are grown up enough to know that there is more to life than politics.
If people want to use Facebook or other social networks as a platform for their political candidates or agendas - FINE. BUT!! If you are going to post a derogatory status/update/post, realize people disagree with you. Be prepared for responses. Be able to take someone who disagrees with you. In other words, if you are going to say someone "triggers your gag reflex" or that it's all someone's fault, etc...put on your big girl underwear and deal with it when someone disagrees. It's called respect. It's called being an adult. And it's called life.
Now, that said - get out and VOTE! :) Make your voice heard. And, hey, if you want a crazy good political debate - head on over to www.babyzone.com and hit the Hot Topics board. ;)
I'm not here anymore!
