I would certainly not disagree with you initial statement, but I hold firm to mine. It doesn't matter how much you dislike the president, his attitude, or the people who put him in office. He is not the devil, he is not God, he certainly isn't an angel. He is a man, with strengths, weaknesses, good points, and bad points. The people who put him in office are PEOPLE with families, hopes, dreams, strengths, and weaknesses. And there is no way for me to advocate for improvements if I don't understand them as people, understand why they believe the things they believe, and why a person who puts forth the persona our president has got enough votes to be put into office.
Our previous leader was respectful, gracious, and forever open to compromise. Even when it left him weakened and isolated as a result. Meanwhile our new leader is a childish and vulgar affront to the very concept of civil discourse and mature understanding.
By not demonizing or deifying people, you can reach the higher plane of understanding them. When you understand them, you might have a chance of formulating the tools required to make them see things as you see them. Without doing that, you haven't got a snowballs chance in heck.
