I’ve been thinking about this a lot in the last few days. I’ve already said Bernie Sanders was my candidate, and now I’m with her. I understand the BernieOrBust folks, but I’ve noticed some pretty barbed conversations between people who I know to be friends, at least on the social media outlets I troll. I am all for vigorous debate, but this feels like something more serious than in-family carping.
So I’ll make a deal, to anyone who’s interested: We all have the right to figure out our own politics, and where to cast our own vote. I cannot emphasize how little I care for Donald Trump, but I refuse to hate any one for their political choices. That’s as close to “come together” as I can get.
(But I’m probably going to continue being nasty about Donald. It’s in my genetic code, I fear.)
