A big mistake liberals make is to think all conservatives are republicans; there are plenty of conservatives like myself who are registered independents.
I love being an independent! It means a lot to me to even say that I'm independent, I have my own mind.
I don't feel the need to embrace an ideology on its entirety just because my party says I should, or because some people of a party say I should.
I think for myself, I believe on what makes sense and follows a logical train of thought.
The biggest problem I have with liberals is that the majority simply embrace the democrat party without ever questioning the logic of anything! They'll defend things that make absolutely no sense and completely contradicts other areas of their ideologies.
And independent mind would be able to support the pro-choice ideology but still see how barbaric selling baby parts for profit is, instead of trying to justify it. Even for the atheist this should be a moral issue, not a pro-choice issue.
But at the same time it makes no sense to be perfectly ok with abortion but raise hell when someone destroys turtle eggs.
It also makes no sense to say you're against religion, criticize Christians and call all Christians religious zealots, but defend Islam and make sure that everyone knows there are good and bad ones.
It makes no sense to be against Bush's spending but fine with Obama's spending (which is more than double).
It make no sense to be against deporting illegals because they do the work that Americans don't want to do, but at the same time complain that unemployment is high among unskilled people and give them welfare so they don't have to do take the jobs that the illegals are more than willing to take.
It makes no sense to want free college for everyone, when we already have millions of unemployed or under employed college grads - we need to increase demand, not supply.
It makes no sense to ask for more government spending when we have 97 trillion of unfunded liabilities.
It makes no sense to embrace the climate change agenda without questioning geoengineering by the government.
It makes no sense to cheer the strong stock market as a sign of economic recovery when only the "evil" top 1% benefits from it.
I can go one forever with things that democrats embrace that makes no sense simply because they contradict their own ideology.
What do I wish for our Country?
People that can think on their own! People that read, research, that are curious, that understand that morality doesn't require religion to exist, people that reject dogma.
We've given up so much of our liberties that even our thoughts are scrutinized these days, one must conform at any cost.
Children are medicated into conforming, adults are sued into conforming.
A mind sure is a beautiful thing....don't let them take it away!
