My Pledge To Democrats
I've been increasingly irritated by the behaviour of a lot of left-leaning people over the last two years. Sharon Cobb's blog this morning has moved into the category of blogs I have stopped reading. If I'm not going to listen to Rush Limbaugh because of his bombast, I'm not going to read a liberal blog that engages in the same style of writing. I don't read TN Guerilla Women either.
I get that you folks don't like George Bush. He's not my favourite either. But I would sincerely like to see the name-calling and childish hyperbole come to an end.
I figure now that I was proven wrong and the Dems have taken at least the House, if not the Senate as well, this is a good time to put my mouth where my money is.
This is my Pledge Of Adult Behaviour In Politics. Feel free to call me on it if I deviate in any way.
1. I will not gin up ridiculous names for Democrats in power.
You all can keep your "King George" and other silliness. Playground name-calling is not going to help bring this country together. Yes, I know there are those on the right guilty of this too. I am not Ann Coulter. I am not Rush Limbaugh. I am a Christian American who is tired of the hate.
2. I will refrain from wild conspiracy theories as excuses for why the party in power is in power.
One word. Diebold.
3. I will not go about shouting "Impeach Pelosi".
4. I will realise that even though we are of opposing ideologies on most things, we are all still Americans and will never accomplish anything if all we do is fight childishly over the ever-dwindling spoils of American leadership..
