This election has brought out the worst in women here, who I imagine were previously rational ppl. There has been mass dehumanizing of candidates, and of supporters of either side. It makes me wonder how close were are to the sort of scapegoating that precedes genocides. So, the question is, are you capable of viewing your political rivals as human beings, just like yourself? Can you make an effort to reach out, with real kindness, to ppl you disagree with? Can we still disagree without malice towards one another?Answer Question
Good question, unfortunately you will probably soon besieged by those very venom spewing attackers........ you do bring up a good point but for some reason calls for humanity and decency are met , for the most part anyway, with more attacks.

This election is making alot of people crazy because it is uncovering America's worse sham. It is making America naked to themselves and the world. What a pity.

Of course I can. I have a very dear friend who is the complete opposite as I am, politically. I could never allow politics to come between us. The same goes for my BIL and one of my sisters. Those here at CM who I disagree with, I certainly hold no true ill will towards them. There are a few who are so extreme with their beliefs that I often find myself shaking my head. They want me to 'see the light' and to 'see the truth' in McCain. That is their right to feel that way. Just as it is mine to wish they would realize the world will not come to an end, as they fear, if Obama is elected.

Ahhh man! I had a longer response, had to cut it shorter than 1000. Thought I had copied the remaining but failed to do so. Errrr I have no doubt that tomorrow, and the next few days, will bring out the 'I told you so"s and the Bibles will be flying again. As a Christian myself, I am rather tired of that. Any way, it won't die down for a few days. Myself, no matter who wins I plan to look forward. I hope many others can do the same.
