Even though I am very politically minded, my intention was to post few political entrys in my blog as it is about family. So after this I will return to my regularly scheduled blog...
Over the course of the last few days I have read nothing but bitter anti-Bush diatribes. Now, I could
just hang out with like-minded people as myself and read nothing but Bush praises, but that would just be too boring. Anyway, I would just like to address a few issues that are disturbing to me.
1.) Calling Bush a dictator and comparing him to the likes of Hitler is a slap in the face to people who have truly lived under dictators. We just witnessed democracy in action, 60%
of eligible voters let their voices be heard. That doesn't happen in countries under dictatorship. Calling sombody a dictator because you happen to disagree with his social agenda is so overdramatic and histrionic that the message is immediately diminished and discounted as sensationalism.
2.) Roe v. Wade. In the very miniscule chance that it perhaps might
be overturned (read not gonna happen), it would NOT make abortion illegal. It would simply give the power back to the states as it was before. If a state chooses to make it illegal, bring it up with the state
3.) Not only are people insulting Bush, but many have resorted to insulting people who voted for him. Bush supporters are not stupid, uninformed yokels. Now granted there are uninformed voters - on both
sides. Different things matter to different people, and they vote accordingly. Where is all that tolerance for those who think different than you? You know, that tolerance that is constantly being preached to the right? Believe me, I understand the disappointment, I suffered thru eight years of Clinton. I never resorted to insulting people because they voted for him.
There I feel much better.
