I really hate election time.
Maybe I’m not being realistic, but I’d hope it would be possible to hear about hear about what ails the country and how each candidate plans to fix it without this almost feral ugliness going on right now.
It seems like people are more interested in making others afraid of the uncertainties to come and who is to blame for them rather than addressing what’s going on and how to fix it.
No candidate is completely innocent of this kind of sensationalism, though supporters of the incumbent president seem to possess a little more in the way of political vitriol than the hopeful candidate’s do.
It’s easy to see by a simple search of social media.
Regardless, this behavior does continue, and in my opinion it is not just because we allow it, but we also condone and support it.
I don’t know what the solution to that is.
