To paraphrase, why do you vote for conservatives? What?

Hate to burst you bubble but all votes are for the rich – conservative or liberal. You think Hillary is poor? You think Obama got in office by saving up for it – you’re a joke.

I don’t know if you have noticed but there is a nationwide trend to decriminalize small drug crimes. They are filling up the jails and draining police resources from more serious crimes. Not saying I agree or disagree but it is nothing new.

To the black congress women from Maryland that moaned about having to tell her son to “be respectful to police and do what they tell you” if stopped. Geez, what does she think she should tell him? She might also tell him to be respectful to all people.

There is a correlation between those states with the poorest educated population and their bias in favor of the Republican party? The GOP knows that and appeals to the lowest common denominator with arguments in favor or fear, prejudice and intolerance.

To the mother of the woman killed by the police in the patrol card when she tried to kill them with the stolen gun she had – where was your outrage about the criminal lifestyle she decided to lead? That’s what got her killed.

It is so puzzling how you do not support your own best interests and those of your family, friends, neighbors and all Americans. Why do you cast your vote for corporations, fall for the propaganda and speak loudly for the rich who consider you a fool and not worthy to kiss their feet? To paraphrase, why do you vote for conservatives?

Obama went through 5 years of garbage over his birth certificate. He is accused of being a Muslim, of hating America and of unconstitutional action. He is criticized about his debt. The last time a Republican balanced a budget was Eisenhower. Nothing was said…until Obama was elected. Someone said he should be judged as if he was white. I agree…

Today the Lawyer for the family of Freddie Grey said “we should stop putting black men in jail for drug offenses so they can remain at home with their children”. I don’t see the situation in Baltimore or any other inner city getting better any time soon.

People complain that wages are not keeping up with increased hiring. Yet, they cannot fathom the importance of joined forces to demand fair pay, i.e. a union. What incentive does an employer with an ocean of available talent have to increase a person’s pay? So, quit fighting unionization and recognize their value in today’s economic environment.

Romney DOES NOT give to charities unless you consider the Mormon Church a charity. And he pays no taxes because his money is in 5 different countries. I bet you voted for that. How un-American to put your money in foreign countries.

Face it… Someone has to pay taxes. The middle class is getting hammered now and will not benefit from your fair tax. This is just another scam on the middle class like the Reagan and Bush tax cuts. My taxes went up both times.

People have tried to knock Obama on everything from not wearing an American flag on his lapel to charitable donations. I had never heard of such before. But all of a sudden, there’s all these new standards. Conservatives thought the world was coming to an end back in ’08.They werent that frightened when 9-11 happened. Obama gets elected and there’s “Please Pray For Our Nation” bumper stickers on cars.

There are just under 7.5 billion people on planet earth–and every single one has an opinion that is just as precious to them as yours is to you. So how is it that you think your smarmy, know-it-all opinion means squat? Live and let live!
