I’ve said it before on other topics here and I’ll say it again
What I hold dear to me to consider myself a Liberal is that I am very open minded. If I have something to say against the current administration,
I'll say it no matter if I'm out in public or not. I also hold this dear to me, and that is we can't really do anything about terrorism unlike what
this current administration's believes are.
The one of many things that I oppose in the conservative movement is their view on abortion. Do these people ever think that an abortion may be
helpful to someone? They don't realize that some women are unable bear children because it may hurt or kill the mother or the child or both. Plus,
isn't it real strange how someone can be pro-life and yet support the death penalty?
What Kind of Liberal Am I?
I would have to say that I am an 8 out of 10 on the Liberal Scale. When it comes down to some issues, I speak my opinions, but I don't force them on
people like others do. There are some issues that I am straight down the middle on. If someone does not agree with my views, that's fine with me.
Just don't make it a personal attack on what I believe in.
I do have a stand point on abortion, and it's one that everyone should think about. That is, what if the childbirth poses a risk to the mother or the
child? Is it ok then to literally make the mother or the child suffer through the birth? A stand point like what most people take on it, I look at it
as immoral. I really don't have an opinion on gay marriage or gay rights. Since the Episcopalians elected a gay priest, I've looked at it like no
place is immune, not even a house of worship. I support the Constitution and the Second Amendment like all Americans should be doing now. Some people
in this country today, including the ones in the White House, have forgotten what beliefs this country was founded on.
