A Short Rant About Republicans, Because of a Democrat

Umm… I know that sound weird, but… the truth is I’ve been avoid politics since Obama won a second term. Mostly because I’m so disappointed. I thought there were more people in the States who thought like I did. But it turns out there are more people in the States who want free stuff.
So… My ranting is caused by an article a liberal friend posted on FB (yes, I’m addicted to social media. Sue me). Although, the more I talk to him, the more convinced I am that he’s not REALLY a liberal. Deep down inside I think he’s a Libertarian, but like  a few people I know (myself included) he’s just not comfortable voting for a “Third Party” candidate. Either way… That should be a working link to the actual article and below is the conversation that ensued.
 

MY LIBERAL FRIEND shared a link.

Not a clue…these guys have learned absolutely NOTHING!

HIS MALE FRIEND: They continue to believe they lost the election b/c they ‘weren’t conservative enough’. Let em, to their detriment. Can’t wait for the 2014 Congressional elections.

HIS FEMALE FRIEND: that ilk is specically designed for white men only

HIS MALE FRIEND: HEY, Shawn and I resemble that remark

ME (MY RANT): Huff Post as a source? shame. Altho, I am disinfranchised w/ the Republican Party… The problem most of them need to realize (or maybe have realized) is that Dems are just plain better at the minority/ women votes… both “groups” (in general) were more worried about different issues than the Repubs (who thought they could run and win on the economy), while the Dems realized that pounding women with birth control and “womans rights” and minorities with immigration issues would (and quite possible did) win them the election. Then you add in the “lower & middle class” who got tossed the entitlement bone… Oh dear, I think I just ranted on your status. Don’t forget you’re my favorite Liberal, and I’m not a Republican. 😉

MY LIBERAL FRIEND: LOL! we need a face to face, but…c’mon. look at the state level republicans. immigration crack downs, early voting, anti-abortion laws (why are women REQUIRED to have an ultra sound even if not medically necessary?) , planned parenthood defunding (really? aren’t we throwing out the baby with the bathwater here?) The republicans truly don’t have an umbrella opened wide enough. and unless they wake up to the new demographic shaping america, they will cease to exist.

HIS MALE FRIEND: Alienating minorities and women lost the election for the conservatives. Asians, who did not benefit at all from any ‘Obama gifts’ like the Dream Act voted for Democrats in the 70th percentile b/c of the rhetoric on the right re immigration. Women felt it in the state legislatures dominated by conservatives that passed bills requiring unnecessary and invasive ultrasounds, to the US House passing a bill that redefined rape. Did it to themselves, and I haven’t gotten to the appearance of favoring the rich over the middle class. Did it to themselves.

ME (RANT CONT.): haha throwing out the baby? Literally. I think things like PP AND PBS should be privately funded… like charities. as for the new demographic… I think there will be lots of defection from BOTH parties to the Libertarians by the next Presidential election. Hopefully.
@HIS MALE FRIEND… I agree. I just don’t think they should fall in line with the Dems. The parties are so diff. on things like the economy…
the Federal gov has too much control over people’s lives. Let the border states deal with immigration how they want, let the people of each state make the choice to allow abortion, gay marriage, school choice, etc…
OOOPS. Sorry MY LIBERAL FRIEND, I just did it again. I do need to see your face. I’m still think I can convince you that you’re not an Icky Liberal.

HIS FEMALE FRIEND: pounding women with birth control? that’s really offensive

ME (BEING POLITE): Patricia- I’m sorry that was offensive. It was a poor word choice. I was too lazy to spellcheck & type “inundated”.

Yup… pounding is offensive. I think I might post the “Day after Election Rant” soon. PS… please excuse my AWEFUL grammer & spelling! I get so heated, and i have clumsy fingers.
Happy Thursday!

Holy Sh*t, I Think I’m A Libertarian

Really, this post is a rant. If you’ve no interest in listening me go off about Big Gov, quit reading. Please. If we’re real-life friends, or you’re a dirty Liberal (or both, because for some reason I have a lot of Liberal friends), I’m sorry I’ll probably offended you.  
 
I’m angry, and scared for the country that I love. WHY?!
It’s about Bush’s Patriot Act. It’s about SCOTUS crushing AZ’s immigration law, and upholding Obamacare (interpreted “mandate” as a TAX). It’s about people who work hard for what they EARN, giving it to the Fed, for people who don’t earn. This is about a socio-economic situation that will only get worse unless “regular” people stand up for themselves. It’s about the USA becoming the Peoples State of America. It’s about the fact that people should work for the “American Dream”, not have it handed to them when they cross the border. It’s not about party “lines”, it’s about your rights/ freedoms being taken from you one, by one, by one.
 
‎1984, Fahrenheit 451, A Brave New World, We, Atlas Shrugged, Anthem, The Giver… are warnings. Not instruction manuals. What happens when your God-given freedoms are gone, and it’s too late? When is enough, enough? Is it when Newspeak becomes normal, or when a fireman SET fires, or when the gov lines their pockets in the guise of “the common good”?
I want smaller Gov, less taxes, free trade/ free market system, individual rights, and smaller military (defense only).

A Letter to Liberals

Dear Liberals,
I’m tired of y’all bashing conservative women. It needs to stop. Ms. Rosen’s words about Ann Romney are just the latest in a long line of incredibly rude, disrespectful, thoughtless, and mean spirited  drivel from the left. They are the straw that broke this (proverbial) camel’s back.
 
Why would you say that being a mother isn’t a “real job”!? Ann Romney and her family made a choice. And that was to for her to stay home and raise five children. She chose to give them a parent to come home to after school everyday. She chose to give her children a parent to drive them to practices, go grocery shopping, cook meals, do laundry… or maybe they had “staff”. Is your disdain of them because they have “too much” money or because Mitt Romney is “old-fashioned”?! Why is it a bad thing that Mitt Romney was able to support his family?! Would you rather she worked, and let someone else raise their kids? Probably. This isn’t about “poor” families who can’t afford to have a stay at home parent, or weather or not she actually did laundry.  The issue here is your lack of respect for the views and choices of women who aren’t what you want them to be. Y’all talk about Women’s Rights… Doesn’t she have the RIGHT to be a stay at home mom?! Or, do you only support women’s choices when it lines up with your agenda, with the Right to Choice?!
 
Your disrespect of Conservative women isn’t limited to sound bytes from Obama’s White House… it comes from Playboy too. Guy Cimbalo wrote a post for their website in 2009 (I think it was called “So Right, It’s Wrong”, but it’s been pulled) about “hate fucking” 10 conservative women. What in the name of (insert name whichever god you believe in) where you thinking, Mr. Cimbalo!? Hate Fuck?! Have a little respect. It’s disgusting, and demeaning. Porn is whatever. I don’t like it, but getting naked for money is a choice. Those 10 women you want to “Hate Fuck” didn’t choose to demean themselves, you did. Here’s a screen shot, incase you need help remembering how disgusting you are.
 
I don’t have enough time or patience to even start with how Sarah Palin is treated by you folks on the left. Not to mention how Bristol was treated. I don’t like the girl and I think she made some pretty bad mistakes. Would you have treated her better if she had had an abortion? She didn’t abstain from sex, and she’ll have to live with that. I don’t see you condemning every woman on welfare, with children,  who isn’t married. Instead, you pay for them. At least she has a  family, and a support system for her child.
 
Dear Liberals, I know you’re thinking “But… Conservative make fun of us all the time…”, or maybe “Those women are in politics, they should expect this”.  I try not to bash people. All I ask is that you do the same. Think before speaking. Treat people like you want to be treated… have some decency & respect.

-Hey Waitress.
 
P.S. I see that I’ve mentioned Abortion 2x. It was not my intention to turn this into a Pro-Life rant. I simply found it to be a good example of Liberal views. In full disclosure… I don’t personally believe in abortion. I also don’t think it’s the Federal Government’s place to tell doctors or states they have to offer the procedure. It is fundamentally a state issue.

I Believe…

… in the kindness of dogs.
And that the only use my cat has for me is feeding & litter box cleaning.
 
…in any excuse to wear high heels.
Including going to the grocery store, cleaning my apartment, and getting the mail.
 
… there is a song for every occasion and mood.
And I’ll always play it loud and proud.
 
…”high fashion” isn’t for everyone.
Including me.
 
…there’s no reason to under-dress.
Have some respect for yourself.
 
…respect has to be earned.
 
… the government doesn’t owe me anything.
And it’s not too big to fail.
 
…in working hard for what you want.
There’s no reason NOT to try to be the person you want to be.
 
…in a woman’s right to choose.
Only she can decide what is right/ wrong.
 
…Spring is the best season ever.
Mother Nature wakes. The flowers bloom. The grass greens. It’s time for Spring Cleaning, flip-flops, and open windows. It’s time to start something.
 
…in dying my hair bright, unnatural colors.
It’s the last bit of “punk” I have left.
 
…in watching the News and reading the Sunday paper.
 
… LOVE really is the secret ingredient in the perfect cake or baked good.
 
…there’s an artist in everyone.
Some people just have the talent to express it.
 
…sarcasm is an art form.
 
…anything with more than 4 legs in my general vicinity needs to be squished.
By my husband.
 
…words shape the world.
 
…fantasy writers are the most talented of all the word-smiths.
They create worlds and bring magic to life.
