Refuse to Lower Myself to HIS supporters level
I was so angry at the posters flaming Hillary but after I found all those articles, I said damn it, I am not going to lower myself to the Hillary hate posters level. If Hillary and Edwards either one are going to win, they will do it on their own. They don't need people to post the hate messages about their opponent. Evidently that candidates opponents think he needs hate post about his opponents.

The American people see thru the haze, they are picking HIllary, I wish it was Edwards. But I do know it's not going to be the other guy.

And I don't need to lower Hillary or Edwards to their so called opponent supporters level.

2. I saw yesterday
a Hillary supporter post a racial slur against Obama. This resulted in one of his most courteous and kind supporters who is a young black man and who never ever made a snarky remark about any other candidates,saying he was alerting (which I did not know myself was against the rules to say it) and then getting tombstoned for breaking that rule. I understand supporting a candidate. I don't understand the go for the throat attitude of supporters here. People make up their mind for a myriad of reasons but I don't think nasty behaviour wins any converts.

3. he didn't get tombstoned, his post was just deleted in that thread.
I saw your post in that thread and I was about to respond to you to tell you but the thread got locked. I checked his profile, he is still here. I do believe I saw him posting today also.

4. Truly?

I am so happy then. I was so upset about it yesterday as he had every right to be upset and he is so positive in his posting. Thank you! I feel so much better. It really had been bothering me all day yesterday and today.

5. Don't you think there are people here who pretend that they support
a candidate and then deliberately do things to make others members angry, so the candidate gets guilt by association? I really do think a great deal of the outrageous crap we see going on is really people out to hurt a candidate in this manner. Using a candidate's avatar and then making them look bad.

6. It might be so
or else people get so emotionally involved/invested that any perceived slur against the candidate they have chosen is seen by them as a personal slur. I don't know.

7. It just doesn't make sense to care deeply about a candidate and then
behave badly with his/her picture all over your post.

There are many, many, many people with very strong deep seated intere$t$$$$$$$$$ in seeing us hate one another. It's money in the bank for them.

Don't let people pull your chain. Don't do what they want you to do. Get out ahead of the curve and be smarter than the people who think they can make us dance to their tune.
