Look for the Negative - - find the Negative.
Imagine what you might find if you looked for the Positive.
People like you who are so one sided - - - lose credibility in objectivity.
Annee, I have to say that I am surprised by your sudden vitriol.
Up until you decided to engage in a personal and negative attack towards me, my impression of you was simply:"Annee obviously has an opinion which
differs from my own, but seems like a nice person, nonetheless."
I understand that you must be very frustrated to discover that your candidate may not be exactly the paragon of virtue that you had hoped (I voted for
Obama in 2008...before I discovered what a disappointment he became)...and, as Freud suggests, frustration often breeds aggression...but to make such
a negative and sweeping assumption towards another person, simply because they have expressed their own personal opinion and choice in a public forum,
shows not only a distinct shallowness, but a genuine lack of compassion.
Annee, I really feel as if I shouldn't have to even make this point to you as I had considered you to be a relatively intelligent person...but, we're
in the middle of an election and in elections people are free to choose a candidate they wish to support, defend their candidate...and ultimately vote
for their candidate.
Elections, by their very definition, are one-sided in nature; that's how the process works.
Contrary to your stated opinion of me, I happen to be a very 'positive' person...for example, I am 'Positive' that Romney trounced Obama in last
night's debate...and, as a result, I am feeling very 'Positive' towards the candidate I have chosen to support and help elect in November.
Please try to relax and not take this all so personally, Annee...and try to remember that just because someone may not agree with you, there's no need
to personally insult them.
Like you, other people are still entitled to their own opinions.
Wishing you well,
