Forum Post: Stop the hate!

Please let’s just stop the name calling and the hate speech and the tired old divisional rhetoric of party lines. I want so badly for this country to change by the will of the people; but as long as we are calling each other names and drawing lines between Left and Right, we will never get there.

I am a conservative and in the 99%. Don't push me away please. I have never resorted to name calling and hate speech and I never will. We are all Americans first and foremost and deserve each others respect.

This of course applies to everyone on any side of this.

GREAT POST! This is the attitude that they fear most. If more Americans can get this thinking, WE THE PEOPLE can regain control of our government, instead of letting them control us.

I agree both parties are fearful of a populist movement that brings together people from both parties and people of different races and genders. They actually worked very hard to inject racism into the populist movement of the the late 1800's. They succeeded and the movement was short lived.

Thanks, it is a fitting example from history, and I think the parties are going to resort to this if neither one can control the OWS movement.

Sadly I did say "damn Libs" once though and I am sorry for that.

Good for you, that's an excellent attitude.
