I'm going to have to log off of facebook until this election is over. People are nuts, and I can not handle it.
I live in the Bible belt, and am standing squarely on the buckle. There is a church on every corner, and a religous post posted every three minutes on my feed. Not that I am anti-religous. More like I am in wonder about how people can claim to be Christians and dismiss how Trump treats people. All the crazy stuff he has said in the past few months has been excused by "Oh that is just how he is."
I have a mother in law that just says what she thinks, the good and the bad. It is dismissed in the family as "Oh that is just how she is." Can I just tell you how much I hate that statement? How much I feel that it is a cop out. How if you are going to be a decent human being, you have to keep the crazy to yourself. You can't just say what you will and expect every single person to embrace it. Trump has said so much crazy stuff in his lifetime, and it is all catching up with him.
Irregardless of what he has said my friends and some of my family is embracing him as the change America needs. Heck his own running mate has distanced himself, and does not agree with his tactics. Most Republicans do not either.
He acted like such a jerk in the debate last night, though he did calm down after the first 30 minutes. He was right behind her while she spoke. Creeped me out! So to see all of these people on my fb feed supporting him is difficult. I am having an issue with how do I even relate to people who support such a man. How are these people even on my fb friends list? How is my family so into this man?
I can say that most of their devotion is due to religious reasons. Abortion is a key factor. I for one do not believe that Trump cares a smidgeon about abortion, or the babies born into poverty. He can not relate to the desperation some people feel when faced with an unplanned for pregnancy. He can not relate to the women who are sexually assaulted by men like him, or who are oppressed in any way. He is not living in the real world at all. My friends, and some of my family are willing to vote for him just on the abortion portion of it. They don't see the big picture. I do not get it. I do not get it. I just do not get it. Why?
I think I will just lay off of fb, or maybe I can just bite my tongue for one more month. Bleh!!
peace :) shemelts
