I cannot be classified...

I get so tired of reading comments from the right pushing all liberals into the same category. We are not all crazy hippies. We are not libtards either. We are just as free as conservatives to express our opinion. Sorry if you cannot handle that but I thought you loved this country. Do you love it or do you hate it? How can you love this country if you HATE over half the people who live in it? Oh, I know..you mean you love the country you thought it was when you only had to interact with those people in your general area. Well, the world has changed...the US has changed...we are more connected now than ever before. You are going to be exposed to people who do not agree with you. That does not mean you can call them "libtards" or "commies". Name calling is what children do when they are afraid they are about to lose an argument. Grow up and deal with conflict like an adult.

I also get tired of the same kind of divisiveness from the left. Not all conservatives are "fascists" or "uneducated". Many are my friends. Many are my family. They are good people whom just happen to disagree with me on some things. Get over yourself. You are not someone special because you are more politically correct than someone on the Internet. We are all just wanting what is best for this country and the world. Just because someone does not think like you, does not make them stupid. Thinking that way only makes you look like an asshole.

"How can you love this country if you HATE over half the people who live in it?" I ask that question constantly. We are supposed to be the UNITED States of America. How can we exist as a nation without love, generosity, and respect?

Exist is all most of us do anymore. Live though, most don't really live. It is a very horrible to see such hatred toward different groups and really not know how to stop it. Knowing that there is always someone subdividing the human race is scary. That is how really awful things happen in this world.

I'm going to live, regardless. We have to put love and compassion into this world. Otherwise, it would be a barren place.

Sometimes, when I'm sure that it's just too hard, I see an act of genuine compassion, and I don't feel alone in standing up against selfish hooligans who are tearing this world apart.

I think about you and your generous heart all the time, and it gives me strength. Thank you for being brave enough to dare to have empathy, despite how much it hurts.

I cannot take credit for what you call generosity. My mother taught me long ago to treat people the way that I would want to be treated in the same situation. It is sad to say that she could not pass that on to my father. After she passed, my dad reverted to only caring about the groups of people like him. It hurts my heart to see him do that. I love him so much, and he was such a kind, good father, but I can barely stand to have a conversation with him now. It is like talking to a stranger most of the time.

I wish that your dad hadn't changed so much. I know that it breaks your heart.
