“You voted against God. You voted for the death of people.”“You are lazy, live on welfare, housing assistance, food stamps and will make our system implode.”“Before the election, you promised to riot, cause mass destruction and violence and assassinate ….”
“…watched Jerry springer for a second and we were like damn these ppl are stupid. He (husband) said, “Well here ya go hunny, these are the ppl who must’ve voted!”
“…those of us who voted for Romney are educated enough to develop a plan of action to get Obama out of office. There are just a lot more uneducated people in America today.”

And, that is only two entries. For months now, I have felt like I was personally attacked because my politics doesn’t agree with their politics. Do I think I am right, “well, of course.” Do I think they are wrong, “yes.” Do I think they are stupid because of the way they vote, “NO.” That is who they are and what a sad boring ‘Stepford Wife’ world we would live in if we all believed the same way.

I’m told not to take it personally, but my belief system is who I am. How do you take being told you are an idiot? Do you take it personally?

So, what do you think? Are people forgetting they are texting/tweeting/facebook(ing)?? to other human beings? Are they losing courtesy? Have they lost respect? Is this the downfall of man? Let me know what you think.
