SOCIAL MEDIA: OPINIONS ARE OFTEN REQUESTED BUT SELDOM WELCOME … A view on SOCIAL(IST) DEMOCRATS

Author’s note:

Anyone who enjoys writing and is crazy enough to venture into expressing opinions of any kind, it seems, is open to criticism. Constructive criticism is one thing. Name-calling, labelling, and just plain bullying is not acceptable and I will not post comments of those who do. Questions come to my political stand, amd I a rabid Trump supporter? My first draft of this shared more than I decided I needed so here it is: I vote for who I believe to be the best candidate for America and I could not care less what their political affiliations are. For the one person who said in a comment on my writing, ‘Republicans hate Democrats’ that is a very wide brush you’re painting with, make sure you don’t splash yourself. Unlessn a person’s political party is the only thing that defines them, the last I checked, we are all individuals and all have our own opinions. Maybe instead of grouping everyone into hate camps, we should look at people as individuals. For those, such as I who profess to be Christ-followers, we should view all people as loved by God enough to allow His Son to die for them.

I write this hoping that some of you who are so quick to cast aspersions say such vile things against others might see in this a reflection of yourself in a mirror and knock off the bull. We are supposed to be Americans, united by a love of country. Certain groups are hand-picking people who have no true love of America. I was challenged when I said that   Michelle Obama has no real love for America. Here is her quote and an explanation by another author. There is a great deal of public evidence of her vitriol against America, so you can look through that for yourself. I had quite a bit posted in an earlier draft and it’s just not worth my time to write or yours to read.
