I like you because you are 1, extremely intelligent, 2, poised and sure of the things you say and 3, amazing.

Now, a letter to gas prices:
Dear Gas Prices,
Please, fuck me in the ass. I mean, why not? You've been doing it already for several years.
Love, Melanie

I'm not a democrat- but I'm also not a republican.
I seriously think that American citizens should take a closer look at Libertarian-ism (is that even a word?) Because, well, they seem to have their shit together, and we're fighting over lame excuses for political causes.


President Bush spends his time looking at the trees and not the forest. He can't see past the little baby issues and see what he's really doing to our country....Now, I'll admit that I voted for him-- but I'll blame that on my faulty viewpoint of seeing too much good and potential in people. I thought that maybe, JUST MAYBE, he would spend his last four years in office making things better, improving our country. Instead, he played golf and ran the White House track a lot. I voted for him because I didn't think we needed to change Commander in Chief in the middle of a(n obviously fucking stupid pointless) war.

Again, I like you. You're fun.

Even if you are a democrat. ;)

No, I totally Agree! I have looked into Libertarianism quite a bit actually, and found some of it's values (particularly economic ones) to be disagreeable.

While other ones, I agree with 100%, (such as anti-violence, freedom of self and personal property, views on censorship, etc.)and seem to be at the very core of everything I believe.

Basically it boils down to this: I believe the government should step up, and do their job as a government to protect the welfare and and rights of it's citizens. I also believe that taxes are vital to growth of the economy. If you have more money than you honestly need, it seems only fair to me you use it to assist those who have none at all. It should be the governments job to collect taxes to assist the poor, unemployed, and provide federal programs to better the life of Americans. This, sadly, is where Libertarianism fails me. :(

What.. exactly is libertarianism, anyway? I have yet to figure that out.
