I label myself….

…and it is probably not that accurate in todays expletived-up political arena.  If sides have to be drawn, then I feel more comfortable calling myself a liberal than a conservative.

Liberalism is a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality.[1] Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally they support ideas such as free and fair elections, civil rights, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free trade, and private property

With that being said…I do not support the liberal platform on gun control and  I’m not sure how I feel about the rhetoric of global warming.

So…in essence, I have my opinions and I like to think of myself more as an American with opinions than ascribing to one of the whack-job political identifiers.  Which leads me to tell you about unfriending someone on Facebook.

If you know me, you know that I totally support your right to your beliefs.  I don’t have to agree with you…but don’t you dare bully me.  I don’t have a problem with you facebook tagging me with your conservative propaganda that you have copied from someone else and like a big blow horn this makes you feel powerful to put it to me because you know that I don’t believe the same way you believe.  And I have every right to delete this “forward” from my page if I don’t want it there…but don’t you DARE repost it to my page right after I delete it and say – well that didn’t take very long, lets try it again.  Delete, unfriend and I have no problem with the block button although I assume this has taken care of the problem.  I know you won’t be reading this for obvious reasons…but I’m getting this off my chest…you’re a dumbass!

Until next time….

  1. If I could I would “like” Tracy’s comment. Sorry – sounds like such a rude thing to do. It is very disappointing when a “friend” acts this way.
