Move On!

I have been an observer and a participant in the many debates this year’s presidential election has caused. As a woman, a mutlti-racial person, with mutli-racial children, and a husband who is also multi-racial, this election has caused many sparks to my emotions. Top that off with a house hold with different religious preferences and backgrounds, you would think we would be arguing all of the time.

This however, is not the case. I love the fact that we have such a diverse history, present, and future. T What would this world be like if it were not this way. Boring!!! What is lacking in this country, the country I love, but often find disappointing, is respect. Many people have little respect and tolerance for those who do not think, look, and act like them.   

Matt Taibbi - Modern Republicans "have so much of their own collective identity wrapped up in the belief that they're surrounded by free-loading, job-averse parasites who not only want to smoke weed and have recreational abortions all day long, but want hardworking white Christians like them to pay the tab," Taibbi wrote. "Their whole belief inherently insulting to everyone outside the tent – and you can't win votes when you're calling people lazy, stoned moochers."

We had people trying to secede because their candidate lost. I am seeing unbelievable disrespect for the office of the President of the United States. It’s quite shocking and disheartening actually. The election is over, it was fair and the results are that President Obama, is President again. And so what, let him do his job, stop being so hateful and negative already. MOVE ON!
