For the love of God, grow up. Remove your diapers and wipe your own buttocks and put your big boy/girl pants on for once...
Perhaps then, we can have an intelligent conversation about what's right, what's fair, and what's just in our society, because let's face it - it's just not a fair argument when you're dealing with people that have the collective mentality of a 3 year old.
All this time, you're the ones that have cried out "injustice!" and "intolerance!" and "discrimination!" - and you couldn't be more WRONG.
Intolerance? Ha! As a conservative, I have long suffered through and tolerated your selfish, spoiled sense of entitlement. Long have I bit my tongue because of my value system and Christian upbringing: if anything I should be commended for my moral aptitude, not punished for it. Despite your ill-educated perception, a huge part of my conservatism is that I realize that YOU do not share MY views or lifestyle, and out of respect for you and your freedoms, I do not seek to ram what I believe down your throat. In fact, I often cut myself short of giving my full opinion on many issues because you're too quick to shame me for disagreeing with you. You take my disagreement as a personal insult on you (rather than viewing it as a lifestyle choice for me), and you follow it with vicious personal attacks. It’s selfish, rude, and entitled behavior on your part, yet I TOLERATE it. You claim to be the party of tolerance, when in fact, you're methodically destroying the Judeo-Christian values that made this nation so inclusive to begin with.
Injustice? Ha. Long have I sacrificed my constitutional right to the pursuit of happiness to ensure that you can continue yours. Let me take a moment to explain this to you: Money that I have rightfully earned is quietly ferreted away from me and placed in your pocket. You eat lobster, get free education, healthcare, housing and cellphones on my dime while I sweat over whether I can cover the mortgage, grocery bill, and my student loan payment. With your squeaky wheels shouting the orders, the government has put more regulation and control on all aspects of American life, and it costs me more money by the second. Now, they're deciding what's best for us because you've made it clear (with all your attention-grabbing boo-hoo-ing) that we're incapable of making decisions for ourselves. Meanwhile, I am forced to sacrifice family time because I must work harder than ever to stay ahead of the growing number of people I am having to take care of against my will. Further, I'm in a losing battle, because the time I spend working cannot be sacrificed to fighting this out-of-control government.
Discrimination? Ha. Discrimination is a necessary evil in life; you'd do well to learn to deal with it. That's right I said necessary and deal with it. It is as basic to human survival as being hungry or tired. Discrimination is how we've made it to the top of the food chain. You use it everyday whether you're educated enough to realize it or not. "Oh," you cry, "we mean discriminate against people by denying goods and services based on color, gender, or orientation." And I say look around, people! There are clubs I can't be a part of because I'm considered Caucasian. There are buildings I can't go into because I'm a woman. There are religious places I'm not allowed in because I'm a Christian. I've been kicked out of college classes because I'm a Conservative. I've been passed over because I'm blonde, given dirty looks because I've dressed provocatively, and refused service because of my children!!! Surprise! Discrimination is happening on all levels and it's everywhere; so you've got to stop thinking that you're the only ones on the receiving end. Stop being a crybaby. Stop being a victim!
"But EVERYONE should be included!" you say. And I say: careful, children. Don't slip and break your neck on that slippery slope. Because when the government FORCES us to serve EVERYONE, what's next? Christian women demanding to set foot in mosques? Straight couples demanding service at an exclusive All-Gay Club? Vegans demanding there be special food for them at a BBQ joint? How about a skin head demanding a KKK cake from a black baker?
Like it or not: FREEDOM MEANS WE HAVE A RIGHT TO SAY NO. That works both ways. Bakers can say "no gay cakes here" because they feel it would be sacrilege. And Gays can say, "Oh, no you didn't!" and take their wallets to another baker. Then they can also go to their Facebook pages and rip the guy a new one, and possibly end his business through the power of social media. The Government need not be involved.
So, tell me, liberals; explain yourselves: We have the freedom of choice, so why don't you have the balls to take the high road and just walk away from the things you don't like? Why do you have to cry to Washington about it? Why would you demand government involvement, when you know it will only bring regulation, corruption, and waste with it? Is it just easier for you to cry than be strong?
Given the choice, I would prefer to be strong. I'm a conservative. I believe in common sense. I believe in working hard to get what I want. I believe in keeping what I earn. I believe in accountability. I believe in freedom. And I believe in the power of choice, even if I don't agree with you on your personal choices.
I'm not going to force myself on someone because they don't like me or demand that they include me in their value system. I'm not going to cry to the government and rally for them to reform laws so they can regulate people and their businesses... especially not over something so trivial as a cake!
I'm a conservative. I'm not going to go and cry about the mountains in my way. I'm not going to demand that someone move them for me. I'll just walk over them.
