God I hate these things.. I'm a single woman who was lucky enough to discover how amazing sex with either sex can be fairly early. I WAS married, divorced now...in college and I work full time. SOOOO not into guys anymore.. Sorry.
I am voting for MITT! I STRONGLY DESPISE Obama and EVERYTHING he stands for. I am fed up with his disrespect for America. It is time for that lying Communist BASTARD to GO!!! http://upload.lushstories.com/796-398225_164754950322859_468844770_n.jpg Ditto!
have :) would again :)
Ok I'm truly just curious as to what's people's opinion on this subject is, I'm not trying to patronize you religious folks out there. In the past there had been many lives taken in the name of God, but I also know very kind people who are religious. So I'm asking you, is religion bad, good, or in the middle? The short answer is "both" :)
So if one makes broad statements about fascists one is being bigoted? Interesting. Don't you think you are being rather general there?Considering what Conservatives say about liberals with narry a peep out of our side, I think I was being rather gentle. Conservatism means keeping things as they are. If you believe in progress you are not a conservative. If you want to change things you are not a conservative. If you question why things are as they are then you certainly are not a conservative.If you believe in keeping things the same for the sake of keeping things the same then you are a conservative and you deserve every little bit of sarcasm and contempt above poured on your head. So...How's that "Hope and Change" thing working our for you?

To be free to make it on my own and build a family, a life and a future in which any children I have will have a free free nation to grow up in without an oppressive overbearing government. I am very pessimistic about all of that because our government becomes bigger and more oppressive every year. Welcome to the Republican Party Missy! :)
usually i play the optimist here, but i'm not sure that the American Dream exits anymore, at least for a lot of people. Seems like the window of opportunity is getting smaller and smaller for a lot of middle class and poor. honestly, a lot of people seem to be happy to simply get through the day by day - things are tight and instead of looking to the future, we seem to be too focused on the right here, right now. Also, to get a plug in, MY american dream is the be 'allowed' to be legally married, a dream that seems to be STONEWALLED (see what i did there?) all too many times. to allowed to live in peace, as i wish, as long as i don't cause harm. it's simple dream, as is MLK's, which still hasn't come true for a lot of folk, either...so yeah, MY American dream is that we can all be treated equally, all given the same chances, and those who have enough to SO much money, that they can afford to buy islands and mansions and jet planes and whatever will do the humane thing and do what they can to help out those who don't. i'm not advocating that they should be forced, btw, but simply have the compassion to do something good with their millions/billions. I can agree in part Sprite. I think we should all be treated equally without any form of mandates to "check boxes" when it comes to employment. Every job I've ever had I've wondered if I was the best choice or I was a "checkmark" on a form. I'm not argiung the second point, I think people who have been blessed should feel enough compassion to help those who haven't but do I think their wealth should be "taken" from them and re-distributed? No. I do think they should feel enough compassion to donate to charities but I've never felt anyone "owed" me anything because they'd succeded and I hadn't. I see new cars and fancy homes and it gives me something to aspire too. I'm proud of what I've accomplished and pride and respect are earned, not given, by achievement. I'm not there yet, but I will be some day and everything I have will be because I earned it. So I go back to my original point, I want the government to leave me alone and let me be happy.
for the record, i wasn't singling out all republicans, just those particular individuals... that said, the party itself seems to tolerate their views, so that makes me somewhat suspect - i mean, if a democrat said something like that, i'd NEVER cast a vote for him. saying nothing simply gives the impression that you condone their behavior - not sure if it's possible to forcibly remove someone from the ballot, but that's what should have happened - instant and unmistakable condemnation. I agree Sprite. The GOP should have insisted on his removal from the ballot as a Republican, but I don't know if a system exists to do this.
Thoughts on what the nebulous "American Dream" is?For me it's the idea that I'm allowed to succeed, or fail, as wildly as my own merits will allow. That's all I really ask from my government besides protect me from those who would do us harm. Just get out of my way and let me succeed without interference.
