I find it interesting at best, problematic at worst that when I express my opinion, I am called judgmental or a hater. When other people express their opinions, they consider themselves pragmatic, intelligent, informed.
Unless my right to free speech, guaranteed by the Constitution, has been rescinded, I have the right to say whatever I want. I can express my disappointment if I so choose. I can express my excitement if I so choose.
I don’t recall stooping to name-calling during the election season. Yes, I have questioned the integrity of the candidates. I have questioned experience. I have even questioned associations. I questioned the discernment of the American people who voted for a concept rather than a plan. Heck–if anyone can tell me exactly what the president elect actually stands for, or even what he means when he uses the word change, I’ll go back to every blog I’ve written asking this question and amend them. However, I am 100% certain that noone can tell me exactly what change means. Because it’s not been explained.
But I’ve not debased myself to name-calling.
I’ve said it several times today, and I’ll keep saying it until we get a new president in either 4 (hopefully) or 8 years. I support my president. Because I’m an American. United we stand, divided we fall.
But the game of name-calling makes me question whether you want to stand alongside me to bring about the elusive change that my president espouses. My guess is no.
