Being a Liberal (yes, Dad, I am a Democrat) is pretty tough. A lot of my political beliefs come down to choice. I believe that a woman has the right to choose to have an abortion if she wants it. I believe that homosexual people should be able to choose who they want to marry just as heterosexual people do. I believe that people should have the right to speak their minds and have their opinions heard. The tough part comes in when their opinions differ from mine.
It boils my blood that people think that there should be an amendment against gay marriage. Who do these people think they are to deny any two people who love one another the right to a holy union? I just do not believe that love, in any form, is wrong. The hard part for me is allowing others to be against it without me thinking they are stupid and closed minded. We all have a right to our beliefs, even if they differ from mine. Still, I really hope neither Huckabee nor Romney become the next President of this great country.
Happy reading, #histfic fans!
