I Won't Let It Happen

"Don't let the same bitterness seen in so many liberals, that nasty venom and vitriol so artfully concealed behind empty smiles and yoga pants and gritty spirulina smoothies, don't let it seep into your daily lives. Don't allow it to happen."

As the nasty comments to my blog start to roll in, simply because I did not support the winning candidate and for what I strongly believe to be very good reasons I will live life and encourage others to live life with the above quoted ideals.

I already received ONE very nasty hateful comment. I am sure more will roll in. There are millions of deranged people who now feel empowered by the new president elect, to behave and live in a MEANFUl way rather than meaningful way.

To paraphrase Sharpton and his cronies, "take a group of people, and teach them how disenfranchised they are and you have a movement."

We saw this in 1939 and we saw it again on the election day. "I, for one, have already lost confidence in the process. Wisconsin is corrupt." - James T. Harris

Jesse Jackson's tears would have been non existant has it been Mr. Harris himself who was the first African American to be voted as the next President of the United States. For him and those like him, it's not about having a black man in the highest office. It's just a tactic for the true movement they seek to impose in order to gain power.

I would have tearfully pulled the lever for James T. Harris, who has good in his heart and is righteous.

I did not vote for Obama either. And when I posted about it no one was brave enough to comment! Which I thought was funny. People are actually afraid to publicly agree with me-and to disagree for that matter. I think that most of the people who voted for Obama did so for the wrong reason!

I hear ya! I'm going to strive to be above the nastiness. All the bad karma being created with the viciousness and divisiveness will come back to bite them in the ass.

I see a lot of bloggers saying, "In Your Face" now that Obama has won. There's something to be said for Being a Good Winner.

If anyone voted for Obama because they thought he was the right person for the job, then fine. But I am so sure many of the votes were because
1. His color
2. Bush made some mistakes

Both of those reasons are stupid. But, I have read so many comments that show me to never overestimate the intelligence of the average American.
Did you know how many voters had no idea that the President does not make the laws? How many had no idea that Congress has been Democratic for 2 years and Bush could not make a move without their approval?
Anyone who votes should have to pass a basic 6th grade level civics test, or at least sit through a few hours of School House Rock.

You have been in my thoughts a lot over the past couple of days as I know how much this election meant to you. I know you have put your heart and soul into your beliefs and I know you wouldn't want me to be sympathetic but I am. I'm sorry it didn't work out the way you would have liked it too. You'll be ok though because you have the courage of your convictions and you are a strong and feisty young woman. How could you go wrong with those qualities?
