Alert – A bit of a political rave.
I find NYT’s Kristoff enlightening and oft times on point (remember I lean conservative). However, today, while promoting mockery of Trump, he seemingly does not get the thin line between mocking Trump and having it carry over to bullying the populace who might have voted against HRC and for DT and a major change in DC.
Do we really want people making decisions because they afraid being mocked? I would like to believe all our representatives are full of integrity and are not swayed by outside influence but I see actions that oppose this view(money, unions, PACs, fake news, etc). Wish I felt most of them were more worried about the people of this nation rather than any single special interest that throws money their way. Would it not be better to help find ways to inform them of the alternatives and have them gain insight into the best decision for our nation?
If this works for DT (which I do not think it will, well just think how we can apply to anyone who does not think like we think and do what we want. Is that the way we want our democratic republic to work?
Oh, it is not the ‘democratic left’ and ‘conservative right’, it is the liberal left. Remember – Bernie is on the left and is not democratic. We can be democratic but not a Democrat.
Sorry but just sad at where we have gotten to in our political discourse and what seems to be acceptable – on both sides of aisle.
