Politics is a divisive subject. Therefore, I don’t like it, either side. Watching the morning news today, I saw pictures of the protests against the latest decisions of the current president. At that moment, I realized that the people who were protesting have been fairly happy campers for the last eight years. However, the USA is a very divided country and it’s almost an even split. The other half of us, yes US (remember, we’re ONE country!), has been disenfranchised for the last eight years. Most of those who were disenfranchised did not scream and shout and call the opposite side “haters.” They grumbled and complained and then showed their disapproval by voting differently.
Each side has to learn to listen to the opposite side. There’s both good and bad on both sides. If we are to be one country, we HAVE to respect each other and work it out. The other alternative is to create two countries where we won’t have to listen to each other any more, but even then, we’ll be forced in some way to do it because of business.
So, to those who are shouting and screaming, take a minute and listen to those “others”. It doesn’t cost you anything. Listening is free. So is voting, which will take place once more at the regular intervals.
