The name calling has absolutely desensitized people. Though our current President is ranking pretty high himself with that as well. It’s a bi-partisan issue, and I agree that it only raises tensions, and divides us further.

Trump made a lot of promises, and people want change. They always do. They believed that he was different enough to make that happen, but the truth is, he’s still just a player in a much larger game.

It’s really not about ‘conservative’ vs. ‘liberal’, but these names are so ingrained it will be a long time before we can break away from them. I truly hope I see that happen in my lifetime.
