What I’m going to write is going to cause some controversy. I know.
It won’t make me popular. That’s okay.
Some people I really like and respect will probably not be pleased with me. I can live with that.
I’m not writing this to ruffle feathers and get a rise out of people. I’m not writing this to start a fight. I’m writing this because it needs to be written, and I’m the only contributor to this blog, so… here goes.
I don’t know what to write.
I wanted to write something thought provoking, but I lost my words.
But the thing is, I don’t really have to write anything profound, because the approximate 1,241,709 American soldiers who have died for this country since 1776, for us, is more profound than anything I could ever say.
I know Memorial Day isn’t for honoring those currently serving, but they signed up to give their lives and add one to the tally of 1,241,709 for us. And that’s worth remembering.
I don’t know if you’ve been running in the same political circles as I have, but they mostly consist of a few Facebook friends, numerous email subscriptions, Rush Limbaugh’s radio show, PJTV shows, and Bill Whittle’s common sense approach to just about everything. Even if you haven’t, you’ve probably heard of this anti-gun “PSA” that’s caused such a firestorm in the news and online.
In honor of our President
granting amnesty to pardoning the Thanksgiving Turkey tomorrow, I thought I’d post another of my politics position essays since the first one was received so well. Maybe this will help is all be a little more thankful for our forefathers who built this incredible country that so many flee to.
No, really, all snark aside, there’s a reason we have this problem and a place like, say, Russia doesn’t. God has blessed this country because of how and why our forefathers founded it, and that’s what we’re really to be thankful for this season. For this country’s foundational values and for those who protect us.
I feel like I have to give a preface for this.
Last year around this time I was in a government class: controversies in politics. I have to admit that I fully expected my classmates to be ultra liberal just because and ill informed about everything. I was glad to proven wrong; in fact, I was really impressed by them. Seriously. The professor on the other hand…
I’ve written about this kind of thing before, but what I’m going to say will still shock and probably offend some people, but hear me out.
I am not a feminist.
Still breathing? No? Well, catch your breath.
Let me ask a quick question before we begin: when you do something, who receives the consequences – good or bad – of that action?
Probably you, right? Likely there are others that will also be affected by said action, but mostly you.
Well, if the Progressives get their way, that may change.
