Do you remember a few years ago when I had everyone write in something nice about the other side? I'm talking politically. The other side of wherever you are.
We're gonna do that again today.
Have you ever been so mad at someone, OOOOOOooo, so mad, and then you talk, and then it's okay, and you feel 100 times lighter?
I'm not saying that can happen all at once here, but if we just freaking try to find some things we like about each other, maybe we can start. Because we can scream all we want, and accuse all we want, and become 8 years old and use words like "Killary" and "Drumpf" like a bunch of idiots. or we can try to find common ground and maybe eventually move toward living more peacefully with each other.
So. Here's how it works. You leave a comment with simple declarative sentences about the other side's good parts. No backhanded compliment, no argument, no snide comments. You do that and not only will I delete you today, I will block you for all time. We are here today to get better, not argue the same shit all over again.
So I will start.
I know that conservative people want this country to be safe. They want this country to be economically secure. I want those things, too, and I hope we can find a way to compromise with each other in order to achieve that.
Now you go.
