if i see one more
"i wasn't going to get into politics this time but..." post
so help me.

why is it that every four years
i have to be so brutally reminded
that even people i know well,
hold near and dear,
know to be well educated and thoughtful
all turn into knee-jerking,
bile spewing,
opinion-and-soundbite over fact shouting
hate machines.

i have friends on both sides.
if you paint "the other" as Evil,
you insult my friends
and you insult me for having them as friends.

you're all wrong,
and it gets proven every four years
when the fruits of your ideas and ideals prove to be hatred.
