Do you honestly think I read every post in this forum? I don't spend all my time searching for posts attacking either side. The heading just stood
out as being divisive and I must say I've seen much of it done by conservatives on this site. You don't have to be a genius to figure out that this
forum is dominated by conservatives. So I honestly have to say I've seen much more attacks on liberal posts than I do on conservative posts. Just
the number of stars given to conservative posts are a dead giveaway, lol.
Your post to me, questioning if I come to the defense of someone on the right being attacked is simply trying to excuse this divisiveness. It's like
conservatives lie in wait to post anything, no matter how small, just to attack liberals. When in actuality, the current political climate has a huge
smorgasbord of conservative negativity, scandals and investigations liberals can easily bombard this site on a daily basis, but they don't! One can
easily see the number of threads attacking liberals on this site is simply overwhelming. I really think most liberals just stay away because they
really don't get a sense of having a mature and constructive debate. For me, I don't care. I can agree with both liberal and conservative views.
What I can't agree with is when a political party chooses party over country. In my view, the Republican party has sold this country out for it's own
self-interests and to hold onto their political office. A wrong is a wrong, and if they turn a blind-eye to it, they've lost any credibility that
their party stands for the rule of law and the values in-which this country was built upon.
If you're really honest with yourself, don't we want our government to work for us? After all, don't they all work for us? So weather you're
Republican, Democrat or Independent does it really benefit us as a whole to attack each other because of our different views? We all want a
government to work for the people and not for special interests or the upper 10 percent. There's power in numbers. If the American people continue
to defend and deny corruption, ignore our officials when they attack basic American values, ignore the lack of credibility and incompetency in our
leaders and elected officials, and above all engaging in divisive attacks on each other, than we weaken the strength of the people who this nation was
to be governed by.
Instead people affiliated with either party should not be afraid to accept the faults of their own party. I have more respect for someone who would
say " Yeah, what he or she said was ignorant or stupid, but I like their stance on a particular issue." No politician or political party is perfect.
Many of our elected officials are not free to speak the truth because of threats within their own party. The double talk and wishy-washy answers in
interviews by elected officials just drives the point home.
Founding Father John Dickinson in his pre-Revolutionary War song "The Liberty Song", first published in the Boston Gazette in July 1768. In the
song Dickinson wrote: "Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall!"
