I know how you feel. It’s makes me sad that at this time Americans need to come together but they seem so divided. I wish we’d all get along. Thinking about going on a vacation every four years ;)

I just don’t understand why people don’t respect other people’s opinions. Not everyone is going to agree with you. Why isn’t that okay?

I’m glad you made this post.. I can’t wait for these elections to be over because people all around have been just so cruel.

@alyssaC:  I cannot believe the anger… Someone called an Aussie (who was someone else’s friend!) “a mindless c-word” for his post about Obama, that the world thanked America for reelecting him…. It’s so upsetting.

What gets me is some of the …whats the word…two faced bullshit I’ve seen.

Like one girl I’ve known for 20 years, who has gone from voting for equality and women’s rights, and pro choice…To literally writeing a 6 paragraph status about how all of us women voting for Obama are now going to hell and calling us baby killers.

It’s disgusting.

Wow – I though my feed was bad!  A few posts of “yeah” and “woo-hoo”, and mine that I was saddened by the results, looking forward to 2016.  And I got defriended over it!  To be fair, this person isn’t the smartest, and thought the election should be decided by Yankees vs Red Sox, but still, defriending?  Now I’m not nearly as upset!!!!  I just posted that I wasn’t saying anymore anyways, the election is over, and that’s all.    I truly feel bad for those of you who are witnessing such hate – that is awful.  (HUGS)

@MissDarthVader:  Umm If I recall in another thread, two bees were giving you their explanations on why they aproved of Obamacare since you didn’t. You said people “are lazy” in your city. One bee’s mom even had cancer. What did you respond? I believe you said you didn’t want to see “sob stories”.  Cruel if you ask me. 

Anyway, I agree with you OP. Things seem way  out of control. Disrespect on another level.

I think it is sad that we can’t get behind our elected officials for the time being and try to move forward and instead we just keep being devisive. The people have spoken, move on and look forward to trying to change things the next election cycle!

I agree.  People on my FB are calling people names, saying they are stupid, ignorant, moochers, etc.  It’s really sad.  I feel like we should all be able to act like adults, but apparently I’m expecting too much from some.

Don’t talk politics with people you know. 

 

More than happy to talk/debate online with strangers. But posting crap on Facebook? It’s down right stupid. Keep ya status’ clear of politics!

Yeah, Facebook is full of stupid right now.  I’m thisclose to starting a drinking game over a post I saw with 60 comments arguing about whether Obama is really black or not.

Most of the crazy will blow over soon.  Hang in there.

I saw a lot of hurtful things on FB last night and it’s still going on right now. It’s very sad.

As a Canadian, where we master in political apathy, it’s truly weird to see how emotional people get over elections, and yet heartening.  At least there’s interest, whereas here most people couldn’t care less.  I’m not sure which is more depressing – the lack of caring, or the caring so much that it becomes personal.
