I'm leaving, might be back after the election [View all]

Too many thin skinned people, too many people crying, too many people giving up, too many people with bad grammar, too many people who don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, too many people who make blanket statements mostly about what people in red states "deserve", too many people who don't know the difference between your and you're and probably yore, too many people who want to argue over stuff that doesn't matter, too many people with too much time on their hands, too many people who likely have never had a conversation with a republican, too many people who likely get all of their news here, too many people who think ellipses are better with 15 to 20 dots,(and too many people who write run on sentences). You know who you are. I'm stuck in the reddest part of one of the reddest states, I come here for encouragement and liberal sustenance but am worn out by the rancor over trivial shit. I doubt I'm the only one who feels this way. There will probably be a race to alert on this post. Knock yourselves out, but there's a contest coming up to decide the fate of this nation, bitching and moaning at each other over small matters is not helpful. I believe we have a number of candidates who could win and one that can't, even if everyone at DU votes for that candidate. To the rest of you, good luck and happy trails, to those of you who recognize yourselves above, get out of the basement and expand your horizons. Buh-bye, TTFN. You may commence the alert.
