Bravo Obama...good for you. Maybe some conservatives can take some notes on how to make a statement on the issue while staying above the
I would ask are you serious? But I already know you are.
This is the most partisan, small minded, mindless drivel I have seen posted in some time. For starters, how can you paint all conservatives with the
same broad brush based on Limbaugh's view? Last time I checked the only person who spoke for me, was me. Against my better judgement, let's get to
And this is the difference between liberals and conservatives.
Liberal view on women using contraception: It is their right to be able to plan their future with contraception, it is a medical issue and thus should
be covered under health insurance.
Conservative view on women using contraception: They are whores and sluts who should keep their legs closed.
First of all, birth control is a personal choice. Not a human right . The problem here is, that Government is involved in health insurance to begin
with. They should not be. They have no right to be, and they have no business involving themselves in it. Get Government out of the way, and there
will be some company who sees this issue as a way to get more customers and they will offer birth control as part of their policy.
The same type of thinking goes for homosexuals, the poor, and immigrants.
Liberals on homosexuals: They are people too, government shouldn't rule who you should love. Their HUMAN rights should be protected.
Conservatives on homosexuals: Screw em, They are disgusting perverts and should be shamed into conforming to MY views.
The issue here is that Government is involved in marriage. Fact is "marriage" is a religious issue. It is a religious ceremony that consist of two
people making an agreement with God to spend their lives together and be faithful to one another. THE ONLY reason this is even an issue is because of
what marriage means in terms of taxes. Married people can file head of household and get tax breaks while single people can not. Married people get
plenty of deductions, that single people do not get. The only people who argue the issue of gay marriage, which is exactly what your post is
describing gay marriage and not just being a homosexual, is the religious. Normal everyday people do not care one bit about this issue. As far as the
majority are concerned, we don't care who you marry.
Liberals on the poor: We should help people who have fallen on hard times.
Conservatives on the poor: Screw em, they are lazy idiots that just want to leech off of us.
There is a difference between help and entitlement. Just handing out money because someone is out of work is foolish. If you really want to help
people, you will give them welfare to help them out and you will give them job training so hopefully they will not have to fall on hard times again.
Interestingly enough, it is Conservatives who usually mention job training and the liberals who fight that.
Liberals on immigrants: We should be accepting to people who want to come here and make a better life for themselves, we should make it easier
on them to come here legally.
Conservative on immigrants: Screw em...they look different, speak different, and act different than "true" Americans...we got here first...they can
go back to where they came from.
This is a flat out lie. No one has said close the boarders and do not allow immigrants in. The problem and the issue here is what to do with the
millions of people who already came here illegally and have been here for years. The majority Conservative view is to deport those who can here
illegally, let them get in line, and come back in a legal fashion. This is really just an issue of the rule of law. Either we have laws and are
willing to enforce them, or we have laws that need to be repealed because we do not want to enforce them. It is that simple. The issue of illegal
immigration can easily be compared to bank robbery. If I were to rob a bank and I get caught and I do my time, once I am released do I have a right to
keep that money if it was not recovered? After all, I broke the law to attain that money. I did my time for stealing it so is it mine now?
ILLEGAL Immigration is not much different. They broke the law to come here. They have done their time, they have ties to the community, friends,
family, and some have children that they brought into this world while living here. They have done their time and are accustomed to being here. They
have done their time pretending to be legal citizens, so is citizenship theirs now?
I really think people who have voted Republican for decades may finally be waking up to the fact that they have been decieved to vote against
their own, and fellow countrymens, interests.
We have all been deceived for decades, by BOTH parties. Wake up!
