I sometimes feel like I'm being, I dunno, rude or spiteful or something, thinking and talking about Hillary's supporters and the problems of this last election. It's over now, right? Except I don't know that many people who were on the Hillary train have taken any effort to learn from what happened, which means we're primed for even more failure in the very near future unless we talk about it, even when it feels rude or spiteful or whatever.
I want to be very clear, we need each other.
So often we look at each other like we are enemies, rather than friends looking to improve the nation together. We don’t need to rehash the past, we need to look for solutions in the future. It is about how the DNC showed some level of favoritism towards a candidate, not that the DNC screwed Bernie. We all want candidates to have a level playing field, that is all we are asking for in the future.
We would be much better off if everyone just worked on being less confrontational about things we actually agree on.
But let’s be honest, the last election was hard on all of us, Clinton supporters, Sanders supporters, even supporters of every last Republican nominee. While there are some things that we need to talk out, more importantly, we need each other.
There are commonalities between most American’s. We are worried about the direction the nation is headed. We feel economically limited due to government policies. We love this country and want to see it sustained.
And that last commonality is very important, especially at this time.
Because for the first time in our history people are beginning to wonder if our nation, our government and our way of life are at risk. This is why we must set differences aside and work together.
American symbols, that many of us hold dear, are being wielded by those that do not believe in American ideals. They call themselves patriots while suppressing the vote, limiting free speech and the right to assembly. They carry the American Flag while limiting our Fourth Amendment Rights. They rave about the Constitution, while actively attempting to destroy it.
Those symbols are for those that embrace our Constitution and Rights, and the enemy of those ideals have stolen them from us. They have perverted their use for Nationalistic purposes.
I fear the same people are attempting to end our Republic.
We need each other because those people are in power and the only way to defeat them is by standing together. So, I stand with those that really support American Ideals. I stand with all the Real Patriots, not the Nationalists waving our Flag.
