This IS NOT the place for it. And I say that regardless of whether I agree or not with views expressed. If a post came up that I agreed with 5000% and wanted to vote immediately for THAT person for President, I still would think that this thread is a totally inappropriate place for it and that people should not parade out their political views and give speeches here.
This thread is for Secret Santa and to tease each other, something to make us smile, something to perhaps even make us forget about real life, which still has all sorts of difficulties regardless of who is in office and still would have had difficulties had all election results been flip-flopped. Lots of people come to this thread looking for a possible lift or escape on a tough day, enjoying others teasing each other even if no recent word from your own. Today, for instance, I'm packing to head for a family funeral. Others have already mentioned on this thread how much it gave them a lift on a particular tough day just to read a tease. And I know there are people right here on COTH having far more "reality bites" days than me (prayers to you, Tamara). This one thread above all is supposed to be purely upbeat and fun for us.
This is not an appropriate place to air your political views, regardless of what those might be. Please, leave it off this thread.
