Apparently, I am a liberal.
I believe each American Citizen has a right to free health care.
(And liposuction and a boob job as needed)
I believe my social security should be in the hands of government and not the stock market.
(Thank goodness we didn’t get roped into privatizing social security or granny would be living with me. That women smells like a mixture of moth balls and depends)
I believe my teenage daughter should be permitted to make her own decisions regarding her reproductive choices .
(I think Suzie being on the pill because she is messing around with that dumb Jock from 4th period is a good thing. But I don’t need or particularly want to know)
I believe in a woman’s right to choose.
(Especially deciding if she is up to dealing with an annoying little crotch dropping for the next 18 years.)
I believe people should be respectful and tolerant of differences and every individual should have the same rights as any other despite their race, color, religion or sexual preferences.
(If you care who your neighbors are fucking or how, you probably should think of getting a little of the ole in and out yourself.)
I believe government has the responsibility to help those that are less fortunate.
(Yes, even that nasty homeless bastard who scrapped his shopping cart against your BMW)
I believe that the government can protect the people without taking away their civil liberties and I believe that liberties should not be sacrificed disguised as protection.
(No, you can not detain me just because I have come from a place where some of the bad guys live. Get the fuck out of my house. Well, unless you brought cake in which case I was just about to put up coffee.)
I think if you censure reading material in any form, you sacrifice free thinking.
(Not only am I allowing, I am encouraging my young daughter to read The Chocolate Wars and I Know Why The Caged Birds Sing and you all should do the same.)
I believe an 18th century light house is more valuable than turning the acres of land it sits on into high priced condominiums. I also believe the government and my taxes should pay to keep our country's history alive.
(Yes, even the bad shit that might be a little embarrassing to future generations. Like the fact we banned books and bulldozed our past to build more Walmarts.)
I believe that it is our obligation to take all steps to ensure we protect every living creature on this earth.
(Except red ants…nasty little bastards)
I believe that Bill Gates should pay a bigger percentage of his income in taxes than I do.
(When he has to drive around to find gas five cents cheaper a gallon, I’ll listen to his problems.)
I do not believe the ten commendments have any business being in any public building.
(Unless the top ten spells of witchcraft are permitted to hang right beside it.)
I believe that art and music are just as important to teach as math and science.
(Especially since I was really shitty at math and science)
Am I a bleeding heart liberal? Fuck, yeah and damn proud of it.
