I used to be a liberal. It was a long time ago. The reasons I identified with that affiliation were my feelings about government not being involved in my personal life.
I know that people like to hijack the term pro-life and it's come to mean against abortion but that's not how I see things and I won't let any person or group do that to me.
I'm pro-life and pro-choice! I'm pro MY LIFE and MY CHOICE to decide what I will do with my body or not should I ever get pregnant and I stand strongly for each woman to decide this for herself without political pressure from any other person or group! PERIOD! My human rights comes first.
As for being gay...let me put this at you clearly: Not ONE gay person ever created another gay person. It takes a man and a woman to make a baby. That means that it's heterosexuals who are creating gay people!
No one ever taught me to like boys. I just did. I chased them from a young age on the playground...schoolyard crushes. It wasn't like I had the best role models to show me a loving heterosexual relationship, believe you me.
And I do feel for those in the gay community because really they have nowhere to turn but the left is SLEEPING with their enemies. The right is just against their lifestyle.
I know we all want things to be perfect and in a perfect world these wouldn't be the choices. But I think the biggest thing missing from the minds of our youth today is the understanding of real choices and what doing or feeling one way means on the other side of those choices and decisions.
So for me I mostly align myself politically with those on the right. I do not agree with all that they stand for. But I know they are their beliefs only and I can live with them and work around the ones I do not agree with.
The left however makes international alliances with Iran, Pakistan (now as the militants are taking over) and Russia. I don't need to give examples as they are so recent and clear cut. These countries regimes are staunchly anti-gay. Moscow police arrested many people this past weekend for protesting against the government's position on gay rights. And according to the report they did so pretty violently.
In reading the story I wondered about the Americans that were there to organize this event, why they felt it was their business to be there and why they haven't tried this in Iran. After all Russia is one of the largest suppliers of weapons to Iran and is economically strongly tied to that country. Iran has an even worse human rights record and their President makes public claims that they have no gay people.
So the next time idiots like Garafalo who are totally brainwashed by the left, scream that those of us who support the Tea Parties are just redneck hick racists...maybe just maybe someone intelligent and not brainwashed will throw these realities in her/their faces and show who is the redneck racist and and who is not.
