WHAT?!?!? Really? Shocking huh? Well, when I was younger, I recognized myself as a Democrat. I studied people from John Kennedy to Martin Luther King to Chuck Robb and believed the Democrats were out to keep America "white" and that sounded good to me. I knew the Republican party was bad because Martin Luther King was Republican, and the majority of the people in who were marching with him were Republicans. I didn't grow up with many black people. The ones I grew up acted "White" like me and they didn't associate themselves as "Black". Growing up watching the news, you only heard of black crime, blacks mugging and murdering white people and even each other. There was hardly any white on white crime reported. So, why was I a racist? Well, I didn't know any better: I wasn't educated correctly, just as kids today are not educated correctly.
I thought I was so right... I couldn't have been more wrong. I began reading about Martin Luther King and his words resonated with me. I listened to his speeches and said to myself, this guy is right. He deplored the Democratic party because they wanted to keep the blacks under control, as they do today. Malcolm X, Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton ordered the murder of King (documented, yet unproven) because they knew a free black nation is uncontrollable, and they were insignificant without control. Malcolm X was murdered by Jackson and Sharpton (documented, yet unproven) because he realized, as I did, that King was right!
So, what truly changed IN me? First and foremost, I realized what "All men are created equally" really meant. I knew what it said, but not what it meant. When I got older and started reading history, and really understanding WHAT I was reading, I now know ALL men are created equal, period, and all should be treated AS equals. Jesus' word: "Love your neighbor as yourself" also said it all...
Next, we should all enjoy our freedom and we should protect it with our lives. What does that mean? To many, that means Freedom FROM what they DON'T believe in. I.e. religion, gays, etc. Freedom really means you are free to think any way you want or to do anything that they want as long as it doesn't infringe on anyone elses freedoms, period.
This is the hardest thing to get people to understand when it is really quite simple. Hard core "Americans" will stand up and wave the flag and swear they are all for the forefathers and all they stood for, then they want to outlaw "Social" things they think are wrong. They want to outlaw peoples freedom of religion because they don't like it. If we are to be truly "Free" we must be tolerant to how EVERYONE thinks and believes, no matter how wrong we think it is.
If you are NOT a religious person, it is freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion. 2 totally different things. Grow some thick skin and respect those who believe. When I wasn't a believer, I STFU when someone was praying because it's respect for another man, not what I didn't believe in. I didn't get my panties in a wad because they were praying, I respected them. When someone started talking to me directly about religion I told them I wasn't interested and I expected them to respect me the same. If they did, then all was good, if they didn't, I walked away. If I am directly speaking to you and you don't want to hear about my religion, you are free to ask me to stop or not to listen to me at all.
If you are a religious person, do not judge anyone unless you are the next coming of your deity. Pray for them. Respect those who do not believe and pray for them.
If you don't believe in guns then don't own one. You want to cut down on murders? Stop making people feel they are entitled to things other have. What is mine is mine and I will protect it with YOUR life, not mine.
If you are against baby murder (abortion), then fight it out with your representatives, not with those who are seeking an abortion. It is legal where it is legal, leave the girls and doctors alone. Let them be the one that gets judged by God when the time comes, not you. Also remember, Planned Parenthood was originally funded by a member of the KKK... as a way to eliminate blacks. More black babies are murdered in abortion clinics each year than any other race. In fact, more black women died in abortion clinics last year than blacks killed by cops.
If you want to do drugs or break local laws... go to where it is legal and stop polluting the innocent.
If you support Illegals in this country, go to Canada for the day without a passport and try and get back in. Don't worry, there is someone here illegally who got in the country easier than you will be able to.
If you are against gays, you are allowed to be. Just as they are allowed to be as gay as they want! Remember that All men are created equal? There is no "All men are created except"... It doesn't matter if someone is born gay or decides to be gay... They have the freedom to be whatever they want to be, as long as they don't infringe on the rights of others.
Businesses are allowed to refuse to serve anyone they want. All Men Are Created Equal is a personal right as long as you do not infringe on the rights of others. Demanding a business to serve anyone they don't want to is against our basic freedoms! We also have the right to avoid places like this.
Bottom line is this: We are allowed to think as we want, we are allowed to act as we want, go where we want and do as we want, as long as we are not infringing on the rights of others. You telling me to keep my religion away from you, or keep my guns away from you will seem as an infringement of my freedoms and I will protect them accordingly. Just as I will not tell you what you can or cannot do or believe unless it infringes on my freedoms.
Next time you think your way of thinking is the "Only" way or you want to look down on a fellow American because they don't act or worship as you do, remember... ALL men are created equal.
