I don't really talk politics here. I have many reasons to not do so. Just like I don't talk about religion. Somebody will not take something right and get all upset over it. Sorry April, but we are going to use your post as an example. April has a great sense of humor, I have been reading her for what seems like years. But when it comes to politics, people lose their humor. Go read it, then come back here, I'll wait.
Back? See what I mean. Whether or not you are voting for a certain person, it is a cute post. And really didn't warrant some of those comments.
Now, about me. Some of you know that I was a Ron Paul fan. Unfortunately Ron Paul will not be a choice come November. So what is a gal to do?
I am an Independent, that tends to lean to the left. I am pro-choice, I am pro marijuana (surprise surprise) for medicinal use, I am pro gun, I am for the death penalty. I love freedom of speech, but wish the press would keep their opinions to themselves. I am proud to me an American, even if we smell like hamburgers to the rest of the world. And even though my family are immigrants, I still think we should do something about illegal immigration. I grew up in a Socialist house, and know too much about it to trust it. I am all for freedom of religion, and although I am not religious myself, have no problem with the Pledge of Allegiance in my children's' class rooms. I am anti-big brother, all for welfare reform, and think we have become a nation of whiners. oh come on! You know we have. Just listen to the conversations around you. How many people aren't complaining about something? I think we should drill, and find alternative fuels. And by my State's standards, we are poor.
Now with all that said, you can see why I am an Independent. No single party encompass all that I believe. Either way I vote in November, I will have to forfeit something I believe in. This year I have decided to go a direction I have never gone before. There is no lesser of two evils for me, I made my decision a good time back.
My choice was easy. And no matter how you vote, I still love you all. Our freedom to decide is one thing that makes this country so great.
