Introduction
Hello, My name is Mike Hale. I have always been politically aware, even when I was a 5-7 years old watching Nixon on TV. I felt sorry for Ford, because he was such a klutz. It was around Carter that I saw the impact of what they were doing when gas lines were forming all over the country. I became political enthusiast, I guess you would say after I got back from Desert Storm. I watched the democrat debates and actually likes Jerry Brown. I could see the detest in Clinton's eye for everyone. Bear in mind I was a Republican back then, the kind would would have voted for Santorum (it makes me sick to even say that.) During the 90's however, I heard of the Libertarian movement and was all on board, except I had heard they were pro-choice. I am all for choice, except when an unborn child's life in on the line. Well, I didn't like Bush, I voted for Allen Keys. In 2008 I voted for Ron Paul, couldn't stand McCain, but I was still a Republican and STILL didn't totally get it, so I voted for McCain in the general. NOW, I DO get it, I understand the Constitution in a way I never really did (even though I "knew" the Constitution.) Therefor, I wholeheartedly support Ron Paul. I am now also a "virtual" political activist to support and defend the Constitution. I do not think Dr. Paul is god, I think he is a very wise man and understands the Constitution better than most people. I think if people would listen to him, they would begin to understand the Constitution better as well. It is funny, because I never would have thought I would agree with the ACLU, a liberal or much less a progressive on anything, yet I find myself agreeing on almost everything pertaining to our Liberties. I understand now that the Constitution does not limit us on ANY Liberty, it limits the government for DENYING us our Liberties. But we cannot infringe on other people's Liberties either. So, being a Christian, I do not agree with gay marriage, but it doesn't impact me and trying to make it illegal or condemning someone for it, is not a right that I nor anyone else has. At the same time, If I want to hang a crucifix in my yard, it doesn't impact anyone and should me no one's business but mine.
