Ok, let's see.
Here’s what I believe:
I am not a redneck hick as some here would like you to think. I was born into a middle class working family and I didn’t have anything in my life handed to me. I went to a very prestigious military college-prep high-school only because my father literally busted his ass off working in some of the worst jobs (where his personal safety and life were at risk every single day) you could think of to earn the money to send me there. After that I went to a very good university and got a business degree in Marketing. I paid my way. I took out loans like most everyone else. I worked and went to school at the same time. I graduated with debt. I have earned everything I have in life with very hard work and by not being lazy or acting like I was entitled. I believe in hard work, responsibility, accountability, and contributing to society by paying your share.
That's all fine
I believe there is a social disease in this country. I believe that a great deal of people decided somewhere along the way that they wanted to be worthless lazy pieces of shit & they figured out that the government would just take care of them. I believe that those people decided that they no longer wanted to be responsible and accountable for their lives or for their children’s lives. I believe that the youth of our nation is uneducated and that parenting has become a dirty word because heaven forbid you actually tell your child they way they should live their life.
I believe that the first part of what you say is true, but not to the extent that most conservatives believe. Are there people who try to take advantage of the system or are lazy as you put it? No doubt. I just don't think it's as widespread as Republicans think it is. Most people don't want to be poor. Most people don't want to live off welfare and foodstamps. I teach in the inner city. Most of these kids are hard working. They go to work and come to class at night.
What I believe happens is that the system is so rigged against poor people, that they give up. There is no American Dream. You have to have money to make money (not always of course, but generally). So what do many people do? They quit. Sometimes you can't blame them for that.
I agree with you about the state of parenting and education, but I don't think that's a left/right issue.
I believe that our government shouldn’t be using our taxes to provide social and medical benefits to people who come into our country illegally. I don’t believe that illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote. I firmly believe that the only reason democrats oppose voter ID is because illegal immigrants wouldn’t be able to cast their vote for those democrats who in turn pass legislation after legislation granting those illegal immigrants more and more assistance. I believe that the only reason that Obama is our President is because people thought that by electing him their lives would be better in that they would just get more shit handed to them and they wouldn’t have to work as hard.
I think this is the space cadet portion of your essay. In-person voter fraud is not a big deal. It doesn't happen. Illegals aren't going to risk getting arrested so they can cast a vote. The reason voter ID isn't necessary is that it keeps legal immigrants from voting. Not everyone has a driver's license. We've been over this again and again. The voter ID laws are to keep minorities from voting. Even many prominent Republicans have admitted it. The "illegals and dead people vote" argument has been consistently debunked and is a scare tactic. Please educate yourself on this issue.
I believe that at some point you have to stop handing out money to everyone who does nothing to deserve it because those people have zero incentive to ever pick themselves up and become useful parts of society. I believe that those people will never stop their leaching. I wholly believe in Darwinism. I believe that the hard working people of this country are fucking sick and tired of carrying the dregs on their shoulders and having less money they worked so hard for because it’s taken from them and then just handed to people who didn’t work for it.
We have evolved past Darwinism (see what I did there?) We are a society. A group. This "survival of the fittest" thing is bullshit. You are better than someone else because your dad busted his ass? Don't you see the hypocrisy in that? I'm guessing you are white as well.
You think, "well I worked hard so I deserve everything I got." We sorry to break it to you, but your dad worked hard so you would have an advantage. You got to start your exam with 20-30 extra points. Someone who works as hard as you may end up in public school and not at the best university. So seriously, you are the one who sounds entitled at this point. Thank your dad everyday, because you would be nothing without him.
I believe that this country is headed for some dark times in our lifetime. I believe that the U.S economy is going to collapse because it has a limit and it’s simply redlining right now. I believe that there is going to be another major civil war in this county in our lifetime. I believe a lot of people are going to die.
I think this is nuts.
I believe that our President does not have the American people’s best interest in mind. I believe that Obama was nurtured throughout his life by people that utterly hate America, by his biological father and by associates who hate America.
Now comes the crazy part I see. I don't think he's a saint or anything, but come on.
I believe that Obama genuinely wants to redistribute the wealth and power in the world due to that nurturing. I believe that Obama wants to the shift military power in this world to the UN.
You were reasonable till this paragraph.
I believe that there’s a reason that federal agencies have been arming themselves to the teeth with ammunition over the past year or so & that the U.S. army has been running urban pacification training operations in major U.S. cities. I believe there is a reason that Obama wants to disarm the American people and that it has nothing at all to do with Aurora, CO, or Newtown, CT or any previous shooting tragedy. I believe that there are a lot of sheep in this world that think the current U.S government's push for gun control right now is truly due to those happenings instead of simply using those atrocities to further agendas that have always been there and that don't really have our best interest in mind.
You went from rational to crazy in 0-60.
