Mud Or Morals

Posted on the 18 October 2016 by Musingsbychar
You know I've sat back and I've watched facebook and Twitter-my friends, family and acquaintances during this whole debacle otherwise known as the 2016 election. I am just shocked and saddened by how many people who are normally rational kind people have let this circus bring out their most negative thoughts and actions in the need to be "right". The bottom line in this election is that the people of the US are going to be the losers. Neither candidate is the "Best" the US has to offer. But instead of looking at the facts on both sides everyone wants to get down in the dirt and sling mud.If you want to know what's going on then DO THE HOMEWORK. Go to unbiased sites/info and look where the candidates stand then use some of the knowledge you learned in your high school civics class about  our checks and balances system . Somethings are not going to be overturned no matter how much we despise and hate them (abortion) Nor can one person make a law to overstep our rights. If you want to know the truth we will only get it  when the homework is done. Social media won't give it to you in a meme, slanted post, or a screaming rave.We can find the info for ourselves we just have to be invested enough to look for it and then make an EDUCATED, INFORMED decision voting our our personal conscious. And when someone disagrees with you treat them with respect and agree to disagree. That's one of the greatest things about this country and yet every day people are beating each other up over this very thing. The name calling, and degrading of others is beyond sad. This election has brought out the worst in a lot of people and I for one am ashamed of how we are looking to the rest of the world.We all need to look at our own time lines and ask ourselves what would our  mothers think about them, what would  "Grandma" think about them. What would the person who we  hold at the highest esteem think of it. Now ask yourself is this the side you want your children and grandchildren to see.   Because when the dust settles we all still have to live with how we conducted ourselves .
