Politics

The ugly thing about social media is that you get to see friends and church members fight over topics and subjects we’ve always ignored because they aren’t important to our friendship and fellowship. Regardless of your political beliefs in a country that allows you the freedom to vote as YOU want to, also practice the freedom of ignoring what YOU disagree with. Don’t allow politics to break US like it sometimes tears this nation. We can still walk in the same direction in life without agreeing on everything.

  2. I’ve seen political opinions destroy real life friendships on social media. Hi there. I am going around the neighborhood introducing myself. My name is Marc. My blog contains excerpts from my book The Driveway Rules. It contains memoirs about growing up with undiagnosed autism. I hope you stop by.

  5. Succinctly said! I have been ignoring political posts on Facebook and intend to stay away from it past November. We are all one family, one community, and we can learn much by walking the road of life together without arguing.

  6. I’m not sure just where politicians are spending their money right now, but we’re getting clobbered and our voting isn’t until May (God, how long away is that!?). What I am seeing right now are the Dem ads charging the current president for pulling the same tricks that the prior president did, and they see nothing odd about that.

  7. Depends on how toxic the politics is and how close it hits each person. I used to think like you, but read a post on this topic. And am learning it’s OK and even necessary sometimes to take a stand, and break friendships when it’s politics that supports hate and discrimination.

    • I am a-political, which is to say I don’t like either side. What gets me about the rhetoric is how one side sees the hatred in the other side, but is blind to the hatred spewed by their own side. Both are guilty of it, and it has been going on for decades, growing with each election. The problem begins when on group denies the validity of an election, refuses to acknowledge or work with the other side for the betterment of all. Have we become so politically divided that we cannot even acknowledge when our side does not win?

  8. Exactly. And it is never an issue for me because I don’t trust any elected official or their politricks. Why would I go to bat for someone who is only getting richer while I am just one of the masses. People have to unite as citizens and stop placing these “leaders” on pedestals!
