Good-bye Political Facebook

I posted this rant on Facebook tonight. I will (try to) limit my political postings to my blog here. Facebook has become as insane as this election is - the abusiveness and the lack of civility has grown exponentially.
I've had it. Vote for who you wish. I have never attacked anyone for their choice, even if I disagree with it. It's a free country. You may have noticed that I'm voting Trump. I don't like his character, and would be plenty happy if he were replaced. I do not defend him. I also don't appreciate having my motivations questioned or being called names. I also don't like Hillary Clinton, and there is no chance of voting for her. She is a liar, has 'private and public positions', I believe her to be corrupt, unethical, with no care for anyone but herself. She is an enabler to her husband who has a long history of assaulting women. I do not have to defend Trump any more than anyone has to defend Clinton. They are both pigs. We can thank Bill Clinton who in 1998, claimed his power imbalanced "relationship" with Lewinsky was a private affair and no ones business but his own. "Even presidents have private lives. It is time to stop the pursuit of personal destruction and the prying into private lives and get on with our national life." If we are keeping to Bill Clinton's standard, then Trump gets a pass, just like Clinton got a pass. He's still the godfather of the Democratic Party. Self-identified feminists didn't seem to care about his abusive womanizing record even before he sullied the Oval Office. But Donald Trump, the pig he is, saying horrible things, can't be measured by the same yardstick that Bill Clinton brought to the Presidency because he has a "R" next to his name instead of a "D". All is forgiven for the all powerful "D". Realize Democrats that your candidate is as flawed as the Republicans. The GOP tried to get rid of Trump and continues to try to find ways to replace him. He was never their first choice or even their 17th. The Democratic Party pushed Hillary Clinton on the American liberal, paving her way to the nomination, steamrolling Bernie Sanders, because it was "her turn". The Democratic Party thinks so little of the American People that Hillary was the only choice for them. Pathetic. I will be trying to avoid posting political stuff as best I can from here on. My rant is over. I wish everyone a Shana Tova, a happy sweet new year with only good things for everyone.
