To the citizens of the US.

People, it is a tough needle to thread, but in these cases where there seems to be no common ground, I have always

found that you can just decide to 'be the paradox'. Take abortion. I am completely anti-abortion. That is my

feeling/belief/position (insert your own word of understanding). However, my belief may not be shared by someone

else. I accept this. So I sadly shake my head when presented with the actions of another person who has decided

differently. BUT - I know they have just as much right to decide to do what I consider wrong. That is CHOICE. It is

that right that is at stake here. This is THE classic 'slippery slope' we often hear about. If you tell even one person

they must ignore what they think is right and do something the way you think it should or shouldn't be done, at that

moment, every freedom (as well as every bit of responsibility they need to feel) vanishes. It has been happening in

this country since the end of WWII and it the very reason why corruption is rampant, why there are so many

lawsuits and cops and people in jail and - well - actually it is THE ISSUE we as people need to fix before we can START

making this a better world. Allowing people the chance to make their own decisions, especially when you think they

are wrong is WHERE personal responsibility comes from. If they decide, then they own it. That means no one else to

blame, consequences that must be faced, not passed off because someone else fucked it up. That's right. Ownership

begats responsibility. Responsibility grows respect, first for oneself, then for others. Respect makes you stand a

little straighter, feel better about yourself. That means you feel better about others which brings it all back to being

able to allow them to decide for themselves, even when you know they are wrong. Here is the simple test. You are a

legislator, you make Laws. Every single Law should have to pass a litmus test. This Law is to prevent this action.

*Does the action put someone else at risk?
*Does the action harm another person?
*Does it deny someone else any part of their freedom to pursue happiness?

If the answer to any of those is YES then by all means, pass it.
On the other hand:

*Is this Law being created to stop some other action. One that seems to be a result of this action?
(In this case, do your homework and identify the real reason you need a law and pass it)
*Is this Law being created due to ANY hint of a moral reason?
(moral reasons are ALWAYS personal, even when we ALL agree.
Still means you are telling me how to live.) FAIL.

So go forth you beautiful freaks. Go, paint your face and proclaim thy Warrior Soul. You may actually be an idiot, but

that just makes you special, Sunshine!

Celebrate the differences!

Embrace the scariness of having to make up your own mind. Feel the strength that comes from knowing that

Freedom can only be lost by giving it away. Now, go get your Freedom back. Your parents gave it away for a little

temporary security and they trained you from Birth to never question the Great Father to whom they gave it.

It is yours again when you say it is.
