I watch the news, see the Twitter feed and I find myself defending Donald Trump because he’s constantly being ripped apart, yet it’s practically a crime to say anything against the democratic candidate.
I call bullshit.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t rip on Donald Trump, go ahead, it’s still a free country for the time being. All I ask for is equal opportunity ripping given to the democratic candidate. It’s only fair. Anyone who knows me knows I despise the democrat candidate. She’s a hypocrite; you can read about her hypocrisy here and here, and how she called Bernie Sanders’ supporters “basement dwellers.”
As I said in my disclaimer, I’m voting Libertarian and I know full well Gary Johnson has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning the 2016 election, but his presence did something remarkable, he gave the Libertarian Party momentum. Voters dissatisfied with the two-party system are giving this party a look-see and I couldn’t be happier. In a nutshell, Libertarians are socially liberal, fiscally conservative, and sure a few of us wear tinfoil hats, but every political party has its quirks.
If we take away one lesson from this election, I hope it’s this: Respect each other’s right to choose, don’t hurt anyone else, don’t destroy another person’s shit. On November 9, we need to return to some degree of civility towards one another. As Project Runway’s Tim Gunn would say, it'll be a make it work moment.
