I have to stop reading blogs until this election is over. Not just blogs. Everything. The newspaper. The internet. Everything.
I really believe that people have every right to their own opinion. Honestly I do. And I respect that. I respect your opinion, whatever it is. I don't always agree with it, but I respect it. Because if I know you, or don't know you, it doesn't matter. I respect you and your right to have an opinion.
I do not respect when people say what I think is stupid, simply because they don't agree with it.
I don't blog about politics. I never have. I won't.
Because, frankly, it's no one's business who I vote for. It's no one's business how I feel about the stock market or unemployment or the war. It's no one's business where I worship.
And it's none of my business how you feel about it. I won't ask you. I won't tell you. Probably, if I open your blog and you are writing about politics, I'll leave politely. Even if I adore you (and there are a lot of bloggers I adore), I'm likely not going to read or comment on it. It doesn't mean I don't care about you. Even if we have differing political views, I still respect you. And if we are friends, I love you. Even if we don't agree on everything. We're still friends.
But if you think I'm stupid because of how I feel about things? You don't even freaking know me.
And I don't want to know you.
