Do you think maybe it’s possible that Liberals are less open-minded than Right-wingers?
I’m very disappointed in my country and my fellow 18-30 year olds. I know Mitt Romney wasnt the BEST choice as a republican candidate, but I stood behind him, and I respected him. He is obviously a successful business man, and knows what it takes to help our countries economy and the state it is in.
I am a republican, more specifically a part of the Tea Party. I’m 20 years old. I’m a white female raised in a one parent household. I grew up poor. My mom and I lived on coupons and the dollar store until I was in middle school, when she retired. By today’s standards, we would have qualified for food stamps and medicaid, but my mother refused to live on other people’s money.
My brother helped a lot while I was growing up. He is 13 years older than me, so he would often help my mom pay for my clothes, and private school I was sent to. My brother, Daniel is the most ambitious, generous person I have ever met. He is now 10 years into his thriving, growing small business, and has more than earned every penny he has made. My big brother, who started his own small business in 2002 when he was only 23 years old, is now worth 1.5 million dollars. It is safe to say, yes since he is well off, and he is a small business owner, he is a republican. He is also a openly gay man.
My family was raised in church. All of us. We all accept my brother for who he is, and always have. As Christians, we believe all that the bible has to say, but the one thing we refuse to believe is that Daniel is a sinner and is damned to hell because he falls in love with men instead of women. That’s silly.
So no, I dont appreciate people claiming that everyone who voted for Romney is a gay hating bigot, or a stuck up rich family, or a bunch of close-minded Christians.
I voted for Romney because he supported small business, unlike obama. I voted for Romney because I also believe we should be utilizing our own fossil fuels and natural resources, and not going to other countries to get it. I voted for Romney because I’m not jealous of his success, I admire it.
So please, tell me I am a rich, close-minded-bigot-Christian who hates gays and hates Obama because he’s black. Please, tell me how you are so open minded.
