I am clearly not taxed enough. I realize that there are some people in our society that just can’t help themselves; and it’s my responsibility and duty to take care of these people. I don’t give to charity – so forced redistribution of wealth works much better for me.
I am tired of the hassle of finding the right doctor for my medical needs. PPO or HMO? It’s just too confusing and takes too much time to figure all this out. With national healthcare, all doctors would provide equal care – and what would I care anyway since it would all be free, paid for by my fellow Americans?
Global warming is real, and it’s a consensus in the scientific community that it’s caused by human behavior. If course, John Coleman doesn’t believe so given his recent and ludicrous comments:
There is no significant man made global warming. There has not been any in the past, there is none now and there is no reason to fear any in the future. The climate of Earth is changing. It has always changed. But mankind’s activities have not overwhelmed or significantly modified the natural forces.
Who in the hell is this guy anyway? Just because he founded the Weather Channel doesn’t give him merit or credibility to make these absurd accusations. If Al Gore (who was the 2000 Democratic Presidential Candidate) said so, I believe it and you should to.
I am sick of Christians trying to force their religion on me through the government. I am tired of seeing “In God We Trust” on all of currency and within our court system. It needs to be removed. The government should not endorse ANY religion and I don’t really care that our country was founded on Christian principles. We need to be accepting of ALL people from EVERY religion; and the way our government endorses Christianity offends most Americans, including me. I realize I am supposed to be tolerant of others but this has gone way too far.
I don’t want Roe Vs. Wade to be reversed and I don’t want the government to enforce laws that affect a woman’s right to choose, regardless of how far a long she is in her pregnancy. Who cares if she acted irresponsible with her sexual tendencies, it’s her body and she can do what she wants with it. And besides, fetuses are not “real people” yet and don’t feel pain so their decisions don’t count.
I am against capital punishment. I think all convicted felons; regardless of the crime they committed can be rehabilitated. With the right care and therapy, they can assimilate back into society successfully, even pedophiles.
I believe marriage should be open to anyone and everyone; no restrictions, no laws, no nothing. We need to be tolerant of all people, regardless of their religion, sex, previous and/or current gender, sexual orientation, weight, appearance, etc. In fact, let’s make NAMBLA a government institution so we can regulate their behavior.
I think we should open the southern borders with open arms. The good people of Mexico and South America just want a better life for themselves. Besides, they do the work that Americans don’t want to do. If we were more compassionate to these people and stopped calling them “illegal aliens”, then they wouldn’t commit violent crimes here in America.
Of course, back in 2004, Heather Mac Donald who writes in the City Journal stated that “Some of the most violent criminals at large today are illegal aliens” but c’mon, really … who is she anyway and what college did she go to?
The Department of Homeland Security, estimates that between 300,000 to 450,000 illegal immigrants convicted of a crime are detained each year in our prison system; and that it would cost between $2.1 billion and $3.4 billion annually to deport every illegal immigrant convicted of a crime. Imagine the money we would save if just let them stay!
War is wrong and should be avoided at all costs. We should have never gone into Iraq, Vietnam, Korea; and WWII was a huge mistake. If we just treated other countries with mutual respect and consideration, we wouldn’t have to worry about terrorist attacks or nuclear war. Besides, there is no real proof that the holocaust actually occurred anyway, according to Ahmadinejad.
Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong-Il just want respect. Let’s give it to them and welcome their countries as world powers; and, heck if Chavez wants in, let’s bring him in the mix too. Besides, I am sure we can make significant progress if we just sit down with each country and have a genuine conversation. In fact, let’s bring them in all at once and have a World Power Summit at the UN.
Speaking of the UN, I trust the United Nations more than I do our own government, so let’s give them more power. I am almost positive that the U.S. is in their best interests anyway.
Let’s just leave Bin Laden alone and he will leave us alone; and the Democrats will do just that. Besides, terrorists hate Republican presidents.
We really need to stop supporting Israel. If we did, most if not all Middle Eastern countries would hold no ill regard against the US. I think they can fend for themselves anyway. Besides, they are the ones that are occupying the holy land of Palestine anyway so maybe they deserve what’s coming to them anyway.
We need to spend more money finding alternative fuel and energy resources. We can’t drill here in the US because we can’t disrupt the environment and wild life. That would be a crime; and we don’t want to take Middle Eastern resources either.
And lastly, I am voting Democrat across the board because:
We need a minority President. I don’t care what he stands for, his experience or what his policies are. Having a black president will help shape future race relations here in the U.S. and besides, Obama has such charisma and he is a great speaker too. His speeches inspire me and make me feel special. I have no doubt in my mind that he puts the Democratic Party way before our country, which is how it should be.
I know, some of the comments made above are pretty over the top. But so was this lame duck video created Charlie Steak and produced by SyntheticHuman Pictures. Consider this my rebuttal, without video of course.
