ouch, Ouch, OUCH!

I am a political moderate. My leanings are more conservative than liberal and I am a registered Republican. I differ on political views with friends, blog friends, and some family members that are both liberal and conservative. I don't often use my blog for a political rant, but this will be my one exception for this year.

We can agree to disagree because when it all boils down, our loyalty to each other and love for each other that is far more important than our political differences. Those I cherish all share my primary beliefs in preserving freedoms of the United States and in the Constitution and ALL human rights.

Lately I keep stumbling across vicious and vile words used by one party to describe the other. The supposedly cute phrases these blogger spew are not considered helpful or necessary to me. We seem to be getting points from the extreme left and extreme right if we come up with the most hurtful names to call each other. Well, I don't go for that. I might defend my beliefs against yours but I'm not going to resort to childish playground tactics.

If it satisfies your agenda you might be pleased to learn it seems words can hurt me.

  1. This post only just appeared on my dashboard. We bloggers come from all walks of life. Different faiths, different political beliefs, different lifestyles, different genders, different colours etc etc. That's the beauty of blogland.

    It's totally wrong and unacceptable, in my mind, to use vicious and vile words about anyone else however different they may be. Even if someones beliefs are poles apart from our own, we should be respectful and agree to disgaree without becoming insulting.

    Yvonne -- Most bloggers we select are united. Some are mean and we accidently cross their paths. Thanks for your good words.

  4. This just appeared on my dash board, too. I hope you're not referring to me! LOL

    I don't like it when anyone is hateful, or absolutely dyed-in-the-wool partisan one way or the other. I don't believe in blind faith when it comes to a party system.

  5. Riot Kitty -- This country would really suck if we didn't have a two party system and it has worked for years but this is the first time in my life that I recall such hostilities arising. A bunch of us are really, really mean.

  7. Well said! I hate to open my mouth about anything anymore. I don't know the answers to everything - or anything, for that matter. Sometime I just want to hear others opinions, not get lectured.
