I'm what you'd call a conservative, the very 1st in my family of immigrants.
My beliefs, core or otherwise:
choices in life affect MY
way of life,
Government's role is to protect the people not support the people,
Over one half of the population should not have the right to kill someone because that someone is inconvenient,
The State has the right to terminate a life if it has been determined through due process that that life is a menace to society,
The freedom of speech is the most important freedom we have as a society,
Your rights end where mine begin,
My rights end where yours begin,
I work to support myself and my family, not my neighbors. I give what I deem is enough to charity,
Taxes are good. They pay for essential services that we all use. Excessive taxes to pay for entitlements without proper controls are bad
2nd amendments rights have very little to do with self-defense and have everything to do with protection against a tyrannical State,
The responsible ownership of firearms is a protected right (see above)
I am not an extremist. I don't force my thoughts down others throats. I detest political discussion/debates/arguments. They go nowhere. You can not convince others to change what they believe.
I person has every right to disagree with our policies (see amendment 1) without being called a traitor. But, he does not have the right to undermine those policies without going through the proper process, which normally means an election.
Just my 2 cents.
Go ahead, you can't scare, hurt, embarrass, humble, degrade, or agitate me. I don't care what you think, just that you are allowed to think it and speak it.
