If allowing Jane and Susan to be married is putting your marriage at risk, you and your spouse have bigger problems than who your neighbor is marrying.  What the hell are you all so afraid of?  You’re willing to stomp all over the rights of others because you’re so fearful?  In case you didn’t know, banning gay marriage is unconstitutional.

14th Amendment of the Bill of Rights

Section 1.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

A ban on gay marriage is a  good thing to protect marriage?  Protect it from what???????  The only thing that can protect your marriage is you and your spouse!!!!!    Get over your fucking selves and stop treating gays and lesbians the way you used to treat African Americans and women!!!!   “We are all created equal!”  Despite your insecurities and your fears!

KEEP YOUR DAMN OPINIONS OFF OF EVERY AMERICANS CIVIL RIGHTS!!!!!!

And before you decide you want to start throwing bible versus at me, remember that in the United States we have the separation of church and state!

The United States Presidential election is coming up in 2 weeks and 2 days. Last weekend I spent time with people, mostly women whom I pretty sure are McCain/Palin supporters. These people are great people. They love their families, are funny, and fun to hang out with. A few of the people who are supporting the Obama/Biden ticket stated a few reasons why they supported the democratic ticket. But the McCain/Palin supporters remained tight lipped. Which I found odd because they were the majority. Maybe they buy into the myth that all supporters of the democratic ticket are crazed liberals who attack all of those who oppose them. (I have seen some of those crazed liberals before….scary, scary, scary)

I’ve written many post here asking people for explanations about why they are supporting the McCain/Palin ticket, but not one single person responded. Oh, many of you came by for a visit, but no one was willing to share. So, I’m left to make my own conclusions.

It seems to me, at least down here in the south that there are 3 main reasons to support McCain/Palin.

1. I’m keeping my gun damn it, and no one is taking it away from me. IT IS MY GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO DEFEND MYSELF!!!!

2. Abortion is a sin, period.

3. The republicans will help me keep my money and help me get more of it.

I think those are the most popular reasons. But I have heard from quite a few people who only shared with me because I’m white, that they were not voting for a black person, ever (this has been changed from what exactly was said because it is way too offensive to even this non black girl to repeat it)  And a few people actually believe that Obama is a terrorist. Give me a fucking break! If Obama is a terrorist, I’m a beauty queen!!!

Okay, Barack Obama on gun control.  He supports the 2nd amendment. He doesn’t want to see any law abiding citizen lose their right to bear arms.  I do believe though, that he strongly feels that it should be as hard or even more difficult to acquire a gun than a driver’s license.  That ain’t such a bad thing, at all!!!

Barack Obama on abortion.    There really isn’t much else to say about this.  It’s a pretty clear cut issue.  For or against.  But for those of you who are against abortion, you must know that those of us who support Roe vs. Wade are not anti life, we are pro choice.  Most people who support free choice wouldn’t personally choose to have an abortion,  but they understand that their personal beliefs should not be placed on someone else.  It’s America people!

About the whole money issue.  I am not economic savvy, in the least.  But it is my opinion that the only reason a republican would help you get or keep money would be if you’re a millionaire already.  My life has been better, financially when there has been a democrat in office.   I have to say though, how many of you have made more money or held on to more money over the last 8 years?  I’d dare to say, not many of you, certainly not me.  McCain has voted with Bush over 90% of the time.  Why do you think he’d suddenly change his opinion NOW? 

This is the conclusion of the rantings of a middle-aged white southern girl (woman).  This is where I honestly think the minds of the McCain/Palin supporters are.  I would bring up Palin separately, but she scares me too much.  It scares me to think that A LOT of women are supporting this ticket only because there is a woman on the ticket.  That is not being a free thinker, or a feminist.  The National Organization for Women have given their support for Obama.  They usually don’t endorse anyone, but this time they felt they must take a stand.  Below is the link to the NOW article and the letter they attached with their endorcement. So, basically this is the end of this long rambling.  Thanks for making it this far….and by all means….whether you agree or disagree…. feel free to share, this is a judgement free zone!!!! 

National Organization for Women PAC Endorses Obama-Biden

 

Friends,

We are writing to you because of the fury and dread we have felt since the announcement of Sarah Palin as the Vice-Presidential candidate for the Republican Party. We believe that this terrible decision has surpassed mere partisanship, and that it is a dangerous farce on the part of a pandering and rudderless Presidential candidate that has a real possibility of becoming fact.

Perhaps like us, as American women, you share the fear of what Ms. Palin and her professed beliefs and proven record could lead to for ourselves and for our present or future daughters. To date, she is against sex education, birth control, the pro-choice platform, environmental protection, alternative energy development, freedom of speech, gun control, the separation of church and state, and polar bears.

To say nothing of her complete lack of real preparation to become the second (and possibly first) most powerful person on the planet.

We want to clarify that we are not against Sarah Palin as a woman, a
mother, or, for that matter, a parent of a pregnant teenager, but solely
as a rash, incompetent, and altogether devastating choice for Vice
President. Ms. Palin’s political views are in every way a slap in the face to the accomplishments that our mothers and grandmothers and great-grandmothers so fiercely fought for, and from which we’ve so demonstrably benefited.

First and foremost, Ms. Palin does not represent us. She does not
demonstrate or uphold our interests as American women. It is presumed that the inclusion of a woman on the Republican ticket could win over women voters. We want to disagree, publicly.

These bumper stickers are all over cars down here in the south.  It really pisses me off!!!  Ever heard of separation of church and state????  And btw…if you don’t agree with gay marriage, by all means…. DO NOT HAVE ONE!!!!!

Here are some “reason’s” for prohibiting gay marriage.  Which just proves my point that people who think this way are morons to begin with!!!!

Barack Obama picks Joe Biden and John McCain picks Sarah Palin. Two history making events. I’m feeling pretty fortunate to be alive right now!

I’ve been watching all of the news channel’s and am really tired of hearing television news journalist opinions. On the record, off the record….same ol’ crap really!!!!

Most people will end up here looking for information without the intent of commenting….but if you could be a part of helping others find the information they’re looking for, including me….that would be wonderful!

I want to hear the opinions of average people. Are you an Independent, Libertarian, Democrat or Republican? What do you think about these candidates? Who are you planning on voting for? Why are you choosing the candidate you’re choosing? Are you a one issue voter? Do you vote just along party lines? Or, do you not care what party a candidate belongs to, you weigh all the pros and cons about each candidate and pick the one you think will be best for the job? And for any of those that are planning on voting for McCain, I’d love to hear what you think the differences are between him and George W. Bush.

If you’re undecided or even if you want more information, on the issues is a good place find the information you might be looking for!

Come on people! speak up! Whatcha thinkin’?
