Right now I am watching the latest Republican debate. I'm not sure why I am doing this to myself. I'm certainly not going to vote for any of them.
I like to follow politics. But this year I do not know whether to just be disgusted or flat out scared. It's not the fear mongering that has me scared, but the possibility that those who use fear mongering and hatred and scapegoating to divide us might gain power by doing so.
I continue to read editorials and skip over the hateful posters that fill up Facebook. I try to stay out of public debates on FB, but when an out and out lie is passed on as truth, especially when it concerns my candidate, I might react. It was through such a reaction that my brother unfriended me. I dared to label his post as a fabrication, as revealed on Snopes.com. But that's OK. I had already hidden him because of all the hate filled posters he "shared" with no attempt to fact check. Apparently "facts" are relative too, and we didn't share the same "facts".
It's all a mess. Even I am growing weary of it. Will the Republicans be able to get rid of he that shall not be named on my blog?
What must the world be thinking.
