I was a bully throughout high school; I'm quite the different now and don't pass judgments on people. I came full circle from having no respect for,
and often harassing, people of lower social status than me, to having love and acceptance for all people, even if they are different from me (for the
most part, bigots and elitists still get on my nerve, probably because I recognize that I used to behave the same way in the past and feel pity and
disgust for them).
Change is a part of life; if you're not changing, you're dead.
I think that a majority of people try drugs throughout their high school and college years, and I can respect Obama for actually admitting to doing
drugs, unlike these "holier than thou" liars who pretend to hate drugs while blowing copious amounts of snow in secrecy.
Look, nobody is perfect. I doubt a 14-24 year old has any idea he or she is going to become the president of the United States in a few decades, so
cut the candidates some slack. The past is the past, people change, and those who don't are fools. If you hold onto the same beliefs and engage in the
same activities that you did 10-20 years ago, you really have not grown whatsoever, which is very sad.
This is almost as dumb as blaming Rick Perry for going to that park with his family as a child.
I want a leader whom I can trust. If I have no trust in a leader, how can I possibly expect him or her to make good decisions? The fact that Obama
admits his flaws is great, it humanizes him, unlike Romney who says whatever pleases his audience. As long as he isn't slinging rock or beating women
now, what's the problem? The same goes for Paul, in regard to the validity of his racist newsletters, and Romney, in regard to him strapping a dog on
top of his car.
If Paul isn't behaving in a racist manner now, who cares about what he did, or rather is accused of doing, in the past?
If Romney isn't still tying his dog up to the roof of his car and driving cross-country, why make him into an animal abusing monster?
If Perry isn't still going to N*****head Rock, why make claims that he's a racist based on this information alone?
Jesus Christ why can't we actually debate the candidate's policies instead of their personal lives and their pasts? This isn't a damn reality TV show,
the future of our country is at stake, and people want to whine about Obama's past drug habits or Romney's douche-like behavior in High School! Let's
talk about REAL issues instead of nitpicking at the candidates personal flaws (GOD FORBID SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT HAVE A SPOTLESS, PERFECT LIFE RUN FOR
OFFICE!); these events occurred something like 30 years ago! THIRTY YEARS IS A LONG TIME. How much have you changed in the last three decades of your
Politicians are still people, they still eat, sleep, and defecate. Stop expecting them to be flawless in every aspect of their lives and start looking
at what they want to actually do for our country.
On a side note, I don't support Obama or Romney, but respect and support are two different things. I can't respect a sniveling pathological liar like
Romney. I can, however, respect Obama for admitting to his faults and working to move past them. I will not be voting for either of the two come
