It was very sad to witness all the hateful rhetoric tossed around during elections this year.
I don’t think I’ve seen such a display of lies and distortions and we have sunken to a new depth of slime. The scary part is that we may never dig ourselves out. Will we ever be able to bring honesty and decency back to the political arena? I just don’t know and based on what I recently observed, we may not. Reason and logic have given way to hatred of any opposing ideas using any means to defeat an opponent.
People that I look to for leadership joined in and immersed themselves in the slime and were a great disappointment to me as human beings.
Politics should not resort to the fights that fans get into after a football or soccer game and should rise above all the fracas. But, sadly, it doesn’t.
