II

Most of my family and friends are elated and are celebrating ‘that person’ who will become the next President.  I can’t even say his name.

I watch his cabinet picks.  It’s like we are living in Opposites World.

I listen to his ‘campaign manager’ divert every question and never actually answer a question and I am disgusted.  This might be the norm.  I’m not sure.  Normally I avoid politics.  But unfortunately,  for my husband, this year was different.

It seems that there is nothing ‘that person’  does that will make the ‘Obama/Democrat/Liberal’ haters acknowledge wrong doing.

This is where our country is at.  The consensus is that NOTHING he says or does is worse than anything ‘They do’ or have done

So we tolerate his lies, his childish tweets and his  Bullying.

But Republicans won the Senate so it’s all worth it right.???

Just to be clear.  I am not an Obama Lover or a Hillary Lover nor am I a Liberal.   I don’t affiliate with any party.  For many reasons.  First, Politicians lie.  Second, I find bits and pieces of all parties to be beneficial.

I love the United States of America but I am currently ashamed of the behavior of a large majority of the people who live here.  I am ashamed that we have elected  … ‘that person’…. to be our next President.   He can’t even finish a full sentence without the same repetitive adjectives.  I’m not sure he’s ever uttered a complete sentence.

How does this affect me personally?

Besides the obvious world issues where I think he’s going to create major chaos in, chaos that his supporters are also going to feel, I’m struggling with being friends with people who are not only ok and accepting his awful behavior but are compelled to defend him and vilify anyone who dares to stand up and call him out.

This election has sadly made me realize just how un-aligned I am in heart beliefs  with so many people that I am close to.  Thoughts and beliefs have been expressed that I didn’t even know existed.

Truth revealed that can not be unseen.

To all people and to my children and grand children I say this:   Raise the Bar.  Don’t accept disrespectful bullies ever.  No matter what position of authority they are in.   Best Friend,  Casual Friend, boyfriend, parent, spouse, teacher, principal, congressmen, senator OR the President of the United States.  Don’t accept it in your private life and don’t accept it in your public life.  Use any platform you have to denounce this kind of behavior.
