So. I have some right wing values, like the US constitution. But I support several liberal ideals, too. I don’t believe Americans deserve to be fed half-truths, nor be lied to. Our comnander in chief is either a fool, or inherently evil. Our elected officials are simply corrupt. Both parties. Neither party is innocent. Every elected official has blood on his or her hands. They have each let me down by failing the American people, & it makes me overwhelmingly sad & sometimes hopeless.
Now, I need help stereotyping myself. Here are my views:
EQUAL Rights for EVERYONE. Regardless of your race, nationality, heritage, religious beliefs, or lack thereof, OR sexual orientation. Equal!
FREEDOM of speech. True freedom. If you’re big enough to say it, say it out loud & without any fear if out government or hurting somebody’s feelings.
FREEDOM of religion. Let me say my prayers. Let me keep my pledge, and I won’t try to convert you if you don’t try to convert me. Deal? I will raise my kids & you raise yours. Hint* If we both teach respect & tollerance, our kids will probably be friends.
Legalize weed. I mean really. Hard drugs should be eliminated, as should gangs, but damn. Jail time for smoking grass? Seriously, spend my tax dollars elsewhere.
You want an abortion, you pay for it. I’ll pay for your sterilization, tho. Deal?
Now, criminals: murderers (if in cold blood), rapists, child molestors, pedophiles, robbers & thieves – fair trial, then death. Period. If you can’t live in our society, you will no longer be allowed to.
Welfare recipients & homeless. To receive welfare, you must perform work. Something as small as volunteering at a soup kitchen. Everyone deserves to have that feeling of self-respect. To give people the chance to find something, even if it doesn’t pay the bills, that increases his or her self-worth is valuable. If you’ve ever been unemployed involuntarily, you know what I’m saying. Give people money if they need it, but offer hope & an opportunity to dream big, too.
Now, illegal immigrants. I have friends who are here legally & . . . I get it. This is a great place. AMERICA IS GREAT!!! There needs to be legal ways to get here & stay here, tho, & to be here illegally when so many of my friends have struggled to be here legally is simply not fair.
Okay. So, when you are caught, you will be moved, along with your family to a rework facility. There, an illegal family will be able to keep personal items, but possessions will be sold, & manditory work will be required to obtain assistance with becoming legal & learning English. Seizing an illegal immigrants property may be enough of an incentive for them to stop comibg here illegally. However, it should not be impossible to create happy, legal immigrants. Talk about a land of opportunity. You come here, we give you a job, teach you English, & help you set your own legal path.
I would love to see a great nation rise up from the misery our governnent has created for us by ignoring everything our constitution is about. I would like to see every encumbent ousted, every lobbyist hanged, and neighbors & friends elected to office – cuz your friends will keep you accountable.
Ok. Enough of my rant for today. I just really hate being labeled. It shows ignorance & fear. There’s a lot of stuff fucked up, and I’d like to see things turned around. This country has seen worse times. We will get through this, but only if we leave our hangups & preconceived ideas behind, aling with stereotyping one another & condoning hatred. We must move forward not out of fear, but in hope of a better future, and better America.
Later, bitches. Gotta get Boo & Diva some fro-yo!
