I’d be friendly to strangers if they didn’t wear those hats

0 28



Dear Amy: As I drove around my area this Election Day, I had a few thoughts.

How about if we all took down every single sign and personal political flag, no matter the outcome of elections?

If we all did not know how others voted, I think we’d all get along better, and we wouldn’t feel bad about people every time we saw the hat he/she wore, the flag hanging on their garage, or the huge sign on their truck.

I used to be friendly to everyone I’d meet along a sidewalk or coming out of a store, and now I avoid those people who advertise views which are different from mine.

Political divisiveness is ruining everything. Let’s go back to only advertising our politics for a few weeks before each election — that is more than enough!

Tired of Knowing

Dear Tired: If you believe that political divisiveness is ruining positive human interactions, then you should rethink your own behavior. You used to be friendly toward everyone, and now if you know or suspect they’ve voted differently than you, you avoid them.

I’m suggesting that you have your own part to play (we all do) in terms of maintaining the peaceful, pluralistic society citizens want to enjoy.

Casting your vote, advocating for your favorite candidates or causes, and greeting others with an attitude of openness and curiosity — or at least tolerance — are all ways you can stake your own claim.

These behaviors are ultimately more powerful and long-lasting than a yard sign.
