1. We need a return to decency, to serving as a model for children, to showing that resorting to cursing in political discussions, except in the most extreme cases, is beneath us. Ive seen Dems put curses on their political t-shirts and placards, and find it disgusting. GOPrs...
2...or, more accurately, Trumpers (these people stand for virtually no policies of the Republican Party up to 2016, except tax cuts for the rich) curse endlessly. Too many of them are crass, disgusting, obscene while also prattling on about their Christianity. Do NOT emulate...
3...those whose behavior is beneath contempt. Do not descend into the sewer of ignorance and lack of principles to emulate their crudeness. Do not let their disgusting behavior change who we are as a nation. Trump - with all his crassness & obscenity - will be gone eventually....
4...the real question is, what kind of nation will he leave behind? One spewing racism, xenophobia and every other form of hatred. But this kind of evil must be confronted with dignity, intelligence, and relentlessly. Behaving like a middle schooler does not accomplish that.
4...its amazing to watch responses here. People seem to believe that, if they dont' curse, they don't get to confront evils in society. No, you don't get to indulge yourself. Evil does not go away by cursing at it and acting like a child. It goes away with relentless fighting....
5...while maintaining dignity. If your only political arrow in your quiver is cursing, you are too immature and narcissistic to engage in the battles we face. Or, tell me, has anyone ever changed your mind by screaming "F*** you!!!"
