November 8th

October 29th, 2016

A vote for Hillary or Trump is a vote for the status quo. In other words, it is a vote to continue the downward spiral of American politics. It’s a vote for the worst this country has to offer. It’s a vote to continue to only have two choices in every national election. Choices handed to us by some of the cynical people in the country.  
I choose to vote Gary Johnson for president this year. I will do this not because I want him to win. I will do this in hopes of a better future. I will do this in hopes that there will be more choices in the future. I may be naive in this hope but I have to try. I have to try because I love this country and all the good things it has to offer.

Arguments with a Trumpster

May 11th, 2016

I’m sick of the tired lame argument that I should vote for a candidate I despise “for the good of the party”. That’s what got us here in the first place. Trump is a bigoted fool that speaks without thinking. He can do far more to harm our country than Hillary ever could. If he were elected, the left would forever point to him and say that’s what a conservative is! Conservatives would be unelectable for generations and conservatism would be dead. He is much more than eccentric, he is a con man that will say or do anything to get elected. Once elected his foolhardy speech has the potential to start wars and harm our country in unimaginable ways. You want to talk about the Supreme Court? Trump has said his ultra liberal sister would make an excellent Supreme Court pick. Don’t fall for Trumps BS!!!

Trump

April 30th, 2016

I am deeply concerned about the future of our country in a way I’ve not felt before. I believe with all my heart and all my intellect that Donald Trump is a con man. He’s playing a giant shell game on the world stage. In one place and time, he says women should be punished for getting an abortion. In another place and time he says no, only the doctor should be punished. In yet another place and time, he says that the laws should stay exactly as they are now. And so with sleight of hand he makes everyone think they know where he stands. In truth, no one knows what he stands for or what he believes. It’s for that reason that myself and millions of others cannot in good conscience and will not vote for him. What that should tell you is that should Trump get the nomination Hillary will most assuredly win the presidency in a landslide. If that is what you want, fine. But don’t kid yourself that that won’t happen. So, I beg you to take that into consideration when you vote on Tuesday. Thanks for your time.  

Political partiesĀ 

April 21st, 2016

My take away from the 2016 election cycle is that the two party system should be discarded. For years now, we’ve been forced to compromise our values and beliefs just so “the other party” wouldn’t win. However, the breadth of ideologies in this country could easily allow for four, five, or even more political parties. On the left, you could reasonably expect to see people align on either a left leaning populist party or a socialist party. Conversely on the right, you could belong to either a right leaning populist party or a constitutional Conservative party. Libertarians and environmentalists could become more realistic forces in a multiparty system. Everyone should be able to choose a party that more closely aligns with their beliefs so that their values are represented. 

Justification

December 7th, 2008

How does one justify taking another person’s life? And why does defenselessness justify cruelty? It seems to me that if you have a single cell you have the right to take what little chance nature gives you to live. It’s not a religious matter. It’s simple human rights. A woman doesn’t have the right to take a life even if her life is threatened by it. Let nature decide who lives and who dies.

About

I started this page so that I could vent about the many problems I see in the world.  For the most part, the problems I see aren’t ones that others are taking about.  So, I’m carving out my niche of the internet for my views.
