It’s a circular firing squad — with fellow conservatives turning on each other.
Can we not understand that even those with whom we disagree really are trying to discern which candidate is best for our republic?
Some advice from How to Get Organized and Stay Focused in a Modern World (hat tip to Adrienne):
Avoid anger pornRead the entire article HERE. Worth your time. Then, self-evaluate.
Between liberals rage-watching Fox News, conservatives gnashing teeth over Obama dancing the tango in Cuba, and anyone with a pulse reading Youtube comment sections, people are drawn to opinions and news that enrage them. I call this anger porn, and I’m not sure why we insist on consuming it. At least with regular porn, there’s a pay-off. With anger porn, we just get angry and frustrated. We can’t affect the world events being reported on. We can’t change that other guy’s disgusting opinion (nor can he change your horrendous one); we can reply to comments, but that just turns into a flame war without victors.
Anger consumes you. It depletes you. It’s a huge waste of time and attention.
