I'm a liberal for a few selective reasons. Listed below.
I believe that one should have the choice to live their lives however they please, even if it's detrimental to themselves, as long as they hurt
nobody else. (with the exception of abortion, because I believe that you have the choice, even though personally it is against my religion, I will not
force my beliefs on others)
I believe it's better for everyone as a whole, for there to be government assistance, even though I myself would never use such programs, Even though
I've been homeless before. I take care of myself, I don't take any charity, There are some who would (and do) take advantage of these programs,
those people should be ashamed of themselves. I believe that despite those horrid individuals who selfishly take advantage of said programs, they
should still exist, for the people that can't live without them, and whatever collateral damage comes from the bad people, is worth it, to save the
one good person who couldn't survive without it.
I believe that it's better for these programs to exist for the people who really need them, and can't take care of themselves, and I am absolutely
okay with spending my hard earned money through taxes, to pay for everything I don't agree with, just so the things I do agree with can be funded as
I believe that it's better to give than to receive, I believe that greed is evil, and throwing up tax dollars is a useless argument. I would rather
go without in life, to see others be helped than to have more and see people suffer.
I believe in technology, even though it has been used in an evil way, such as spying on American citizens.
I believe that for everything good, there is usually something bad, Even if it could be avoided, it would take a lot of effort to do so, and thereby
waste the money you complained about in the first place.
In a perfect society liberalism would be a perfect selfless way of life, however we don't live in that society. I am perfectly fine with all of the
negative stereotypes, and badmouthing that comes my way for the way I believe. But I believe the way I do because it's the right thing to do, and I
am willing to sacrifice myself for the greater good of those who need it.
Shame on anyone who takes advantage of liberalism to suit their own selfish ends, they will have to live with the things they have done, and will
answer for it accordingly.
