I love hearing from different points of view on everything. I like to hear opinions, feelings, arguments, research, data, and passionate reasons why people feel the way they do. On my Facebook page I put an article about people cutting out their friends and family out of their lives because of the election, and I asked my friends, who are on every side of the spectrum, what do they think.
I enjoyed reading clear reasons why the right has valid points and the left feels that a vote for the right is a personal vote against various groups that feel targeted and threatened.
Then someone asked me what do I think, and as with everything else in life, I like change, and I think all my diverse brothers and sisters have a voice, and I will stand by my friends from every walk of life, every country, race, religion, and LGBT. I did not like either choice, and I see the flaws in each one.

I did not feel safe econmically or with the security of the country with the past administration, and I do not like promises said to my face, but when it comes to action there are no guarantees.
I don’t like how Trump speaks before he thinks, and the horrible absolutes and boxes he lumps people in and Hillary does not represent me as a woman, I see fake smiles and agendas, I do not trust her.
I like direct.
I like straight up.
I like in my face real talk.
So keep it coming.

What do you think?
