Liberals often lump everyone on the right into one big group of racists, haters, etc is bigotry. I criticize those that comment hate from the right. It reflects on me whether I'm a part of it or not because of bigotry from the left. Bigotry is intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself. I'm not intolerant of those on the left... I'm intolerant of haters no matter which side they are on.
These days, they are plentiful and they all seem to have some excuse as to why their hate is okay. My vote is my voice. I've spent the last few years taking the heat for my decision to leave the Republican party, but it is so freeing. Do I vote for Republicans? Yes...but not just any Republican. My vote is earned and it is being harder to vote for members of either major party these days.
