Please stop name calling

Lately many conservative writers have been commenting politically by name calling and derisive language toward Democrats and anybody else they don’t agree with. I am a Democrat, many of my friends are Democrats. We are patriotic, Christian, everyday Americans. We fight the wars, worry about the future, and want a great and prosperous America as much as Republicans and Independents.

When conservatives utilize childish name-calling, they need to research history and the definition of some political labels used by the fascists prior to World War II and the communists during the Cold War.

Name calling is childish, ignorant, and does not reflect American values. Please, do your own research and make a educated argument. Do not blindly repeat opinions you hear on Fox News or any news outlet.

Democrats are your friends and neighbors, do not demean them!
