Stop with the name calling and be respectful

My political alignment may be different from yours. My religious beliefs may be different from yours.

I may agree with you on many things, but I also may disagree with you on many other things.

Things I find important maybe different from what you find important.

I’m not saying you’re wrong and I’m right, I’m just saying we disagree.

I’m not calling you childish, sexist, racist, narcissistic, homophobic, anti-Muslimism, anti-Christian or any other names. I’m just saying I disagree. I respect our differences.

I am not ashamed of my country, my president (past and present) or the American people.

Can we all stop with the name calling and treat each other with respect?
