SusanT: As someone who has voted democrat for many years, I pride myself in being able to listen to, respect and understand a conservative agenda. I can sit down and speak with a more conservative leaning person because that is what makes our democracy work. Sometimes those ideas are even good! I might not agree with everything, but I'm open to listening and engaging in a discussion of ideas. This is not been so in this election. Trump stands for something I've never seen before: a divisiveness and extremism, a bigotry and a hatred that I fear will tear our democracy apart.
