I Believe In . . .
Some online buds of mine have been having a conversation regarding why they are or are not voting for McCain. I’ve been throwing in a comment here and there for the past few days, but today I actually wrote something out for real.
This was my response:
All I know is that McCain’s history for supporting disability rights is lousy.
I believe in human rights, equal rights, pro-diversity, having control over your own body, safe schools, better education, better money options for college students, freedom of choice of religion, separation of church and state, presidents who can form sentences and pronounce words correctly (without help), presidents who acknowledge that the US is not the only important figure in the world, laws that make some modicum of sense, right to privacy, innocent until proven guilty, helping those who can’t help themselves, older adult rights, health care that people can actually afford to do something with, the right to marry whomever you damn well please, gay rights, respect for human beings in general (i.e. – not letting people live in squalor, not letting kids and adults alike go hungry, not making older adults and other people choose between their meds and food . . .), equal representation in courts, not letting the rich buy off whomever they want to get away with whatever they want . . . fuck, I believe in letting people have a damn chance at making it in life.
As far as I can tell, the Republicans are against everything I just listed.
Hell, not having to endure being told that I’m going to hell every time I disagree with someone.
Feel free to argue otherwise (since I know you will anyways lol).
