During the conventions, especially the Republican convention, I noticed how nasty my Republican Facebook friends were being. Interestingly, they were cyber-nasty. I see a lot of these people in public and they are very nice and cordial; and more than likely would not say what they say on Facebook directly to my face. This is an interesting phenomenon to me.
I think the nasty was an attempt to lower support for Obama in order to help bump Romney. Romney didn't get a bump. I don't even think he got a nudge.
Then came the Democratic convention. And though Fox News disagrees, they hit it out of the park. Michele Obama, Julian Castro and Bill Clinton really drove it home and after the convention, Barack Obama got quite a nice bump ahead of Romney.
Well, my Republican friends, though they don't want to admit it, are discovering that Romney just cannot do what needs to happen to come up in the polls. So, they are back to nasty cyber attacking in order to tear down the lead the Obama has.
I really hate it; and people I liked and had respect for are falling so far from grace. It makes me wonder about their character. I get the same icky feeling I would get when I was young and being picked on in school. These cyber bullies are adults yet they behave like they are 12 and 13.
I've heard people say this is the most important election in their lifetime; but it was being said by the Republicans. And they said as though there was nothing but doom on the horizon. I thought they were exaggerating. But I don't feel that way anymore. It is the most important election in my lifetime; I fear that we will lose our freedom to speak out if Obama loses. The cyber bullies will win.
I think I need to sign off now so I can donate to Obama's campaign.
