It’s Only Politics

Published January 16, 2017 by mindfulofchatter

I am tired. Tired of the screaming. The hate. The name calling. I am tired of all the political baloney. All of it.

Not everyone voted for Trump. Not everyone voted for Clinton. A lot of people voted for neither. All of the screaming at each other needs to stop.

Who you voted for no longer matters. It’s over. It’s done. There is a person will step up and take an oath. He will be become our president. It doesn’t matter if you march in streets, or carry a sign, or scream at your neighbour. This man will become president of the United States.

Stop treating every little ‘news’ item as gospel. Ask questions. Do research. If you feel you can’t trust the media, then don’t. Learn for yourself.

Think:

Do I need to say this?
Do I need to say this right now?
Do I need to call someone names simply because I am sitting safe and snug at my keyboard?

There a lot of people who criticize the president-elect about his seemingly inability take any criticism and or handle others poking fun at him. And yet, here we are doing the some thing. Both sides are reacting in the same manner. So how is it anyone can call foul when the president elect does it? (yes, I get the he should be above it, but still)

I suggest rather than continuing the hatred, the screaming and crying, we support each other. As Americans. As individuals who are allowed to vote the person of their choice. We can agree to disagree. We are in this together. For better. For worse. We are going to need each other down road.

So step up. Stop reacting. Stop the yelling. Stop the name calling. Be the one who calls the truce. Be the one can agree to disagree. Walk away from ridiculous articles. Walk away from the comments section.  If you don’t agree with something, find a way to make a difference. Just for the record – name calling isn’t making a difference. Neither is screaming at other people.

So let it go. Make some peace.

After all, it’s only politics.
