Because this deserves a post

I am completely disgusted with Americans right now. Not because of who was elected, but because of how people are reacting to who was elected.

I will not say who I voted for or which of the big issues I support because it makes no difference and that is not what this post is about.

But I will say, this is disgusting:

"Someone please shoot this idiot. I'd rather have his VP at this point."
...unacceptable. The man has two babies!

"I don't care what he does, my president is BLACK" 
....and supporting him simply for the fact that he black, is disgusting.

I'm so amazed that racism is still so prevalent, on both sides.

Friends, this was taken directly from my Facebook page. One person wishing our president dead, one person not caring what the president supports.

Maybe I'm naive but I am saddened by this response. I just cannot believe the things that people are so comfortable saying, rant or not.

Please, friends and readers, don't let stupidity and hate get the best of you.

My coworker overheard a young woman at one of my offices at work yesterday saying (dead seriously) she was voting for Obama since Romney is getting rid of Sesame Street, and her daughter watches it. When asked if that was the only reason, she stated that it was the only thing she overheard during all the debates, so that's what she's going with. I totally agree: I think everyone should vote, but not if you are at least somewhat aware of what each candidate stands for.

Oops, I meant I totally agree with you...not her, lol!

I agree about the racism. It's truly depressing. What state is our country going to be in in the next four years?

Oh I feel the same way! I was reading my Facebook last night and I was just appalled! I don't care who the person is and what they believe in, if you are a Christian, how could you think that way towards another human being. That is not the Godly way!
