Something's missing from the Liberty movementSubmitted by Micah68 on Thu, 10/25/2012 - 01:08
Does it seem to anyone else that in recent months, the Liberty movement, at least as reflected in these forums, has taken on a bit of a sour note?
I used to sense a spirit of joy, of hope, of genuine friendliness, even when the chips were down at certain junctures in the primary season; but it seems like there are a lot of angry, bitter people here these days, ready to rip your head off if they so much as think you might be looking at them cross-eyed.
Where is the love in the r3VOLution?
Where is the demeanor of Dr. Paul in all this?
People are so quick to assume the worst possible motives in each others' posts, and don't on average seem to stop and see how maybe a kind word or a note of encouragement might go a long way, even when you disagree. I'm sure I'm not faultless in this regard, myself, as I've probably come across a bit aggressive in a few posts, when I'm just passionate. But it seems like the downright nastiness and negativity is on the rise.
Or maybe I'm just imagining things...
