I grew up as a staunch Republican. My parents & brother were Republicans. Our friends were Republican. My extended family was split between Republican & Democrat. Oh, trust me. It was WELL-KNOWN in our house how WRONG the Democrats were. *eye roll*
But as I grew older & did my own research, I found myself pulling away from the two-party system. Experience taught me the world isn’t in black & white. There is a lot of grey & I don’t have definitive answers for those grey areas. Even more so, I learned Republicans are full of greedy bastards. 😉
It basically came down to this simple concept – I don’t know what’s best for you. Only you do. What right do I have to say you can or can’t do something? I believe you should have the freedom to do whatever you want to yourself without the government interfering. I mean, I know that’s a broad statement but that’s the gist of what I believe.
And I know there are gonna be those who want to bring up different scenarios & want to know what I would do in each situation. And to those people, I say, “You’re an asshole.” Why does it matter? Don’t bring up crazy hypotheticals that will never happen. Use your time for something better, like helping others. 🙂
