Those Pesky Gun Laws.

“What? Gun control?! The government is coming for my guns- what about my second amendment rights?” I’m sure you’ve heard someone, somewhere say these kinds of things. Am I right? Of course I am. Whether it’s your uncle Al the proud gun owner, your own parents, or the media, you’ve most likely heard these things. The problem is knowing how true those statements are and what these statements are taking away from the truth.

Issues and Beliefs- Pt. 2

In the first post in this series I spoke about the “war on women” and, more specifically, abortion. If you haven’t read it, here’s the link: Issues and Beliefs- Pt. 1 (: This post was supposed to be all about contraception bans and female rights, you know, going with the basic trend of “war on women”… however, some other campaign issues have come up. I no longer feel the need to speak about the social issues which we all know are usually liberal concepts. I would like to talk about Mitt Romney today instead.

Oh Lord, I Still Don’t Know What I Stand For.

No, I’m not talking about myself when I use those song lyrics, however the words correctly describe the Romney campaign thus far. Okay, so it’s no surprise to you that I’m a democrat but I really would consider throwing my support behind a republican if we agreed on a few important issues. The problem arises when you think about what Romney stands for- Which as far as I can see is basically.. well.. nothing.

Issues and Beliefs- Pt. 1

If you don’t pay much attention to politics, bare with me and read this whole post. Odds are you’ll be voting in the next few years (maybe even this year) so you might as well hear someone’s opinion. Political shows are a little dull sometimes and you, as teenagers, have better things to do- trust me I feel the same way most of the time. The thing is, I love politics. I love being informed and making my own decisions- it feels good. Anyways, I promise not to try to sway you. You, as part of America’s (or the world’s) youth are our future doctors, lawyers, teachers, mothers, fathers, and even politicians. So, seriously, read this post- there are some things you should know about the politics of this country in 2012. Things that I never dreamed would suddenly become relevant again but, somehow, here they are. And, it’s cool to have your own opinions, and to share them! I would actually love to hear what you think but don’t knock my views or be rude about it. Thanks (:

The Bible & Homosexuality.

Instead of worrying about what Jesus “doesn’t want people to do” why don’t you go out there with the attitude of doing the things he WANTS you to do? Instead of hating people because they’re different than you, go out and help the poor/hungry? Honestly, you can’t even call yourself a good christian if you’re out there advocating hate and I don’t find it acceptable for you to say “I don’t hate gay people, Jesus does.” God loves all of us: all colors, shapes, sizes, sexual orientation, and gender. While you’re over there complaining about something that doesn’t matter or affect you in any way, our economy is failing and the middle class is in jeopardy… good job, guys.
