I wonder if America REALLY is as dumb as we act? It's like the majority of "republicans" have never discovered a dictionary and the word
"socialism" is the devil and he's commin to get us all! I live in the bible-belt so I have to say this just about every day but we aren't
socialist, not even close. I know many republicans have secret wet dreams of a future socialist America but it just ain't gonna happen, get over it.
I know I'll get a lot of heat for saying that but I really don't care. I'm comfortable with where I sit as far as politics is concerned. I just get
sick of hearing socialist socialist socialist socialist socialist socialist socialist socialist...
It's like that's the only word you guys even know. Are you truly that paranoid of your own lack of education?
I agree with some of the things in the OP. We do need to move on toward a less hateful society, that's certainly very true. I think Obama's problem
is that he is nowhere near progressive enough and he should be a lot more dominant and demanding as a leader. That being said, he has done some things
that really hit me hard, like support crap like sopa, pipa, NDAA ( Great job Georgie wannabe! ). BUT, it could be much worse.
Personally, as an Independent, I did what I'll pretty much always do, I voted for a third party candidate. If it would have been Ron Paul rather than
Mitt, I probably would have voted Republican this time around, but it wasn't so I didn't. I didn't agree with Gary at all on his tax stance, but I
can look at it from more than one position and be responsible enough to compromise and make decisions that seem to be the best in a situation.
I'm not socially conservative at all, as a matter of fact I am very socially liberal but I can certainly be fiscally conservative when it's needed.
I will never be pro big business and corporation because I do not believe in screwing my fellow citizens. I am very pro small business and I believe
corporations crush regular people's chances. I would tax the hell out of corporations and put in place laws that would make it beyond pointless for
an American citizen to start or relocate a business in another nation because if you want to start a business you can do it in your own country. The
way I see it is that if you don't think it's good enough to run a business somewhere and you really want to form one then you're free to leave.
As an agnostic who believes that everyone should have a right to believe what they want to as long as they aren't harming others, I strongly support
a true separation of church and state. Religion does not belong in modern politics and it needs to get out now!
I firmly stand by men like Ron Paul and Gary Johnson in believing that America needs to worry more about America and less about everyone else. We need
to keep our noses clean, as it currently stands, we're in so deep that I can't make the smell go away.
The government shouldn't be able to tell people who they can or can't marry, things like that should be left to the individual to decide for
themselves. Stay out of our bedrooms!
As I've said numerous times, I am an independent. But some of you right wing people really scare me. Most of you are far too old to have to fight in
a war but I truly believe that you would gladly have my peers dying for causes they do not believe in if you could have it your way. If hell exists,
I'm pretty sure there's a special place in it for people like that...
