Take the high road

To my friends and family worrying about what will come:

Be brave, be smart, and stay committed to a better and more progressive country for everyone.

Don’t stay silent, but don’t lash out personally at Trump voters. Instead, show the “better angel of your nature” and your intellect.

There’s nothing about Trump to admire as a person. He’s as vile and base a human being as can be imagined.

And, yes, there’s very little reason to have high expectations that he’ll actually lead in presidential ways that actually reach across all aisles and types of Americans, but this is how the system works.

That said, attacking one another on social media or in the real world won’t change any of that.

The change we still want will come from us. Stay engaged, stay informed, and always take the high road.

About Peaceful Patriot

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
