I Usually Don't

voice my political opinions. I believe everyone has a right to personal choice and free speech.
I watched this video today . . . with tears streaming down my face. It affected me at a level I never expected.
The Sidewalk to Nowhere, McCain Supporters in Bethlehem, PA
It made me shudder with shame that I live in the same country with these viscous, uninformed people.
How can Americans be so blatantly hateful and take such baseless propaganda as solid fact?
My God, if this is how most of the world views us, I just don't know what to say.
I'm heartbroken at our ignorance.

Sadly, for the first time ever, I'm adding a politics label to a post...

Sadly I think that many people everywhere have become more extreme,intolerant and polarized in their views.
It's often frightening and shameful, and makes me wonder where we're heading at times. xx

Hey there, Flighty!
Yeah, I wonder a lot myself. I'd thought we'd evolved into more of an open-thinking, accepting society, but it really seems as if we've taken one step forward, but two backwards. It makes me so sad.
