When did we, as a nation, become.....

So intolerant of other people's points of view?
The arguing and name calling and viciousness of people amazes me.
You know what, my opinion is going to be diffferent from most everyone else's. Wanna know why? Cause we are all INDIVIDUALS.
Just because I don't agree with what you are saying, doesn't make me ignorant; it doesn't make me a bigot; it doesn't make me a cynic; it doesn't make me anything OTHER than different from you. Guess what? Get used to it. That is how we were created. DIFFERENTLY. How boring would the world be if we were all EXACTLY the same?
I don't agree with what is happening in our government, but I'm not gonna go out and riot because of it. I don't agree with what some radio talk show personalities are saying or believe in, but I'm not gonna tear anything up or hurt anyone. IT IS THEIR GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO BELIEVE WHAT THEY WANT TO.
BUT.........BUT..............BUT.............
IT is ALSO MY GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO BELIEVE WHAT I WANT TO BELIEVE AS WELL.
So, here's the crux people..............if you want to be able to believe and to say what you want without being harrassed or hurt or humiliated.........then YOU have to let me believe and say as I want to as well with harassing me or hurting me or humiliating me.
Just agree to disagree.
How do you all feel about this? Love to hear from you.

I agree. The weird rioting going on is not something I support. I am embarrased that people with my same views would do these things.

Voting is the way to get things done and being informed!

I do not like where our country is headed right now and I totally disagree with what the majority of our elected officials are doing right now. My voice, and I hope countless other voices, will be heard when it's again time to vote. I encourage everyone who is not registered to vote to do so right now so they are prepared to vote in all upcoming elections. Most important of all is to prayer for our country. Regardless of what people are doing right now, God is in control.

The thing is, the threats we're reading about from angry conservatives are actually milder than are usually seen from liberal "activists". Not that you'd know it from the main stream media. And they talk of hypocrisy. I had to unfriend a guy on FB today because the mean, nasty talk just finally got to be too much.

These are frustrating times. Novemer can't get here fast enough.
