First of all, why is it o.k for her to judge and insult people based on their political leanings, but when I do it, I'm a fascist, a racist and a homophobe? People aren't their political party, anymore then people are their skin color or sex or hair color. People are individuals and as individuals have their own beliefs and values. How dare you demand I not only that I validate but approve of your beliefs with one breath, and then defame and insult mine with the next?
- Yes. I am a conservative. I am a practicing Catholic. I believe in the 10 commandments, family values, and the golden rule. I will guaran-damn-tee you that there are TONS of things that other people do, that I do not think are what God intended . That's why I try not to do them. I'll bet there are some things that I do, that you don't like. DON'T DO THEM, THEN! How about lets both live our lives and judge who did it better that way. How about that?
AND guess what else? I vote my convictions. JUST LIKE YOU SHOULD VOTE YOURS, instead of just running your mouth, shouting down anyone who doesn't agree with you and whining and complaining when things don't . How about rational speech instead of name calling an emotion. How about good manners and fair play?
Never, have I ever demanded that you believe the same way I do. What I am demanding is that you stop the insults and the name calling and allow me the same rights to my own thoughts and feelings as you demand of me. How about that? How about ending the hypocrisy?
You want the same government that runs the VA system that has lied, cheated and, literally, killed men and women who sacrificed to keep this country free, to run EVERYBODY'S healthcare? REALLY? I don't. This does not mean I don't agree that we need to improve the health care in this country.
I think that in the same country where you cannot get a driver's license, passport, or open a bank account without showing appropriate I.D., it's perfectly o.k. to be required to show an I.D. to vote.
You think that if you choose to use birth control or have an abortion, I should help you pay for it? If you choose to shoot poison into your veins, that I should make sure you have nice, clean needles to do it? Not happening, babe. Not if I can help it.
Or, that if you choose to have a child (or several children), but cannot support them,I should pay for their housing, food, schooling and medical costs? When my husband and I had children, we sacrificed and scrimped to pay our own bills and raise our own children. But YOU feel I should pay your child care bills? If you weren't able support your own family or you don't want to raise them yourself, why in GOD's name did you have them at all?
If I work hard and do alright and at the end of my working life I want the benefit of the social security program that I paid into for 60 years, you say I should not be allowed those payments because I did better than you did financially and I don't "need" it like you do? So, I should let you have it? Ha ha ha! No
I do not think I am better than you. I think I am trying very hard to live a life that I am proud of. I expect you are doing the same. I make mistakes. You make mistakes. The difference between us as I see it is: When you screw up your life, you expect someone else to pay for it...to fix it. I don't. It's called personal responsibility. Look it up.
My God demands that I help the less fortunate. This means a hand up when their down, not taking them to raise.I kinda think I should decide who needs my help. Why don't you do the same? In the meantime, we'll let him be the judge who's doing it better. His opinion, I trust.
