I commented on a discussion here about politics, About Trump, and I cannot believe how people will make sure to offend by saying "I don`t mean to offend" when anyone speaks out their opinion in said discussion. People act like high school drama queens. Yes I am a republican ( Trump- Cruz) but that does not mean that I am bashing anyone for who they support and I expect the same respect. Remember nearly eight years ago when everyone said " enough of Clinton and Bush?" and a new fresh face was introduced " Obama." Its just the same now, time to pick who will be the next President. But if you`ll notice, the people really don`t get to pick anymore. The people YOU voted in for your state is doing all the pickin. So grow up and read the news. The reason I added sports to the title is because the drama queens reminds me of a high school football game .......We`ll kick your butt, and the other children jump up and say we`ll kick your butt and then nothing happens..... nothing but mouthing drama that makes both look ridiculous. This discussion is not approved by Trump - Cruz - Clinton or Bush. Just an adult that is shaking her head in amazement that people " offend" when they have no more right to chose than the next man or woman.

This is the reason why I avoid discussions about religion, politics and also sport, because people tend to believe that only their team is the one that deserves to win.

"I don't mean to offend" is just as bad as "I'm not racist, but."

That's why I don't comment on political or religious stuff....ever. My opinion is my own.

Well said my friend! It is sad when a lot of us just refuse to comment on a post or write a post that is political in nature due to the fear of backlash.
