Aka, idealistic youth turns to cynical zealots.
I dont want someone to put God on my money or teaching my children to praise space ghosts daily while learning we evolved from a magic sky mans super
I dont want Joe the industrial complex owner dumping crap into the canal I fish in, spewing toxic fumes around my town, then bitching about chipping
in to help me with the cancer I recieved breathing in their pollution everyday.
I dont want government to take a stand on religious unions and protecting the fundamentals of a religion...if a church wants to marry a man and a
toaster, thats the churches business, not the state or countrys.
I see a fetus as replicating matter until a central nervous system is formed and functioning, until that, a mole has as much life in it.
I personally believe we have a right to bear arms, but I personally see someone whom has more than a simple shotgun and handgun to be a paranoid
sociopath whom in my humble opinion shouldn't be allowed to own a gun for community safety reasons until they pass a psychological profile
I also see no reason a person needs to own a nuke...go figure.
I see America as a great country, but my eye twitches everytime I hear someone say its the "greatest" country...to me, that person is a braindead
robot whom will damage our country due to their narrow egotism verses a realist viewpoint...if we are the greatest, then hell, no room for improvement
I see the military complex as the most disasterous anti-american establishment...we haven't fought for our "freedom" since 1942...every war since
then has been idealistic resource wars not for survival but for domination in areas we have no business trying to dominate...we shrugged off the
british empire not to become the new empire.
I see oil as a stagnation in our advancement, our nations addiction fueled by supression of alternative fuels. You want to build
infrustructure...stop this nonsense drilling crap and start putting up massive solar panels along the highways all across the country plugged directly
into the grid and significantly decrease energy cost and oil consumption.
I find there is no liberal bias in the straight news, I find there is an educational bias...I find education as a liberal tool in the most pure
sense....liberating a person's mind from ignorance.
I....am a fiscal conservative...I think anyone whom isn't a fiscal conservative is a bit of a moron...but this simply means stop wasteful programs
(like the bloody military complex...a defensive army, no more!) Should we decide to feed the bloody world, stop dropping endless supplys of food and
replace it with fertile soil and irrigation schematics...maybe a few packs of seeds.
Meh...I guess we will simply disagree...I am a social liberal, I find most people...even those hardened conservative limbaugh lovers are about the
same once they stop the talking points programmed into them...and also most people are fiscal conservatives. Dems love the fact that in the 90s, the
dem president not only balanced the budget, but made a actual surplus...they also love to hate Bush for reversing the trend
On paper, in the last 30 years, it has been the dems that reduced the budget, and the reps whom increase it...so tell me, by simple facts and not
retoric...which party of the two is closer to being a fiscal conservative...remember, just facts here...not bull
I love Obama's charisma...he is a jedi master of the spoken word...but I think I am enjoying many of Ron Paul's fiscal views...and the fact that he
appears pretty liberal socially...I might have to look into this libertarian...they seem to have opted out of social stances.
