America and freedom, heck yeah! Ain’t freedom great? Don’t we all love freedom? Then why do so many Americans oppose other people’s freedoms?
Freedom of religion.
Freedom from religion.
Freedom to marry who you want to marry.
Freedom to choose your own medical procedures.
Freedom follow your own political beliefs.
The freedom to believe unpopular beliefs.
Basically, people want the freedom to do whatever they want as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else.
How hard is that? All we have to do is mind our own business.
Of course, if we all did that politicians couldn’t use identity politics and cultural wars to drum up support. Instead of getting us all riled up against each other we might look at how so many politicians sell us out. We just might see how badly politicians are at their job of running the country.
Just a thought from my little corner of New Hampshire, The Live Free or Die state.
