The Midterms Are Over- Stop Being Rude To Others
We see it all the time, people hating on other people who don't share their beliefs. I mean, I'm certainly one to talk, I've had my fair share of antagonistic political meltdowns on Facebook, that's for sure. I've since smartened up and cleaned up my posts because, in a nutshell, they're not necessary. You can have your political opinions and viewpoints, and you SHOULD express them on your social media accounts- because they're your accounts! However, is going back in forth in nasty fashion on someone's comments really helping anything, or are you just hurting someone?
Example: I'm a registered Republican and tend to vote that way most of the time. However, Janet Mills (D) won the Governor's race. Do I think attacking the people that voted for her is a good idea? Of course not. I'm proud to live in a place where my vote matters, and though my choice of candidate didn't win, at least I can say I got to exercise my civic right and voted. And, no matter your political affiliation, Maine will see it's first female Governor EVER! Like since we seceded from Massachusetts kind of ever- that was 1820! Ya just can't not think that's cool!
I guess my point with all of this is just to remember to be kind to other people. Just because you don't see eye to eye with someone politically doesn't make them a bad person. I have a lot of very close friends who don't like chicken nuggets, so I think I know what I'm talking about.
If you missed any of the results, nationally or locally, get them right here!
