Looking Forward To Getting Past November 2, 2010

Not that I expect to be happy with the outcome, of course.

But I’m tired of being depressed by being repeatedly pounded with the message that says “Anyone who disagrees with <fill in a political/policy position here> is sub-human and evil.”

That may seem like an expedient plan for election (and shame on the electorate for embracing it as much as we have so far), but we’ve already gone so far down that slippery slope of dehumanizing opponents that we get head-stomping rationalizations masquerading as political action and, worse, supporters of the position.

This has got to stop, or we’re all going to end up wishing we lived in the Wild West.
