I am a Republican, but…

I hardly ever go Political on this blog, and for the most part I will try to keep from promoting one side or the other in this post, other than to say I like Obama. That’s right. I am a Republican and I like the man and am glad he is the leader of our Country.

I know that won’t be popular with most of my Republican brethren, but then again I don’t really care. I am a Republican mainly because they side with my Religious beliefs, Environmental issues, and Capitalistic ideas. That may not be your American dream, but it is mine.

President Obama doesn’t “check every box” in my list of requirements of the ideal President. Sorry if this offends you, but I wish he wouldn’t side with the gay rights community. Don’t get me wrong, I believe every human being should be treated equally and with respect, but from my standpoint that is more of a moral issue than it is about equality. I don’t like his ideas about abortion either. I think the legalization of abortion is the biggest travesty that our Nation has ever perpetrated.

With those strong differences it would seem that I could not stand the man, and if you think the respect I have for him has come lightly you are wrong. Idealistically I wish he was everything that I wanted him to be. Unfortunately we don’t live in that world. I love and respect my wife, my children, my parents, my family, and myself despite shortcomings and beliefs, and I would dare to say that most other people feel the same about the people in their lives. So, why do we put these idealistic goggles on when we look at our Political leaders?

I loathe the attitude that someone is different from us and therefore we, and our group, are obviously superior and the other side and their leader must be evil incarnate. I loathe the blind, ignorant criticism that both sides spit out. Have we regressed into a Country that labels everyone and every group without actually listening to what they have to say?

I am not saying we should not question each others ideas, and even have the right to disagree with those ideas, but we have to be careful about what we say, and how we treat each other in light of those disagreements.

So why do I like Obama? He’s the first President other than maybe Reagan that I actually have confidence in. The man is wicked smart, and I believe he means what he says. I believe he genuinely cares about the American people and their plight. I believe if most Americans would take those idealistic goggles off and listen to him that they would be inspired, and that they would have hope. I believe they would see an imperfect man simply striving to make our Country better.

In case you can’t see it below, here is a link to the video that inspired me to write this post. http://tr.im/M79P

    snomy and his nourisher current on 801 dollars a month – this is the social security the kids receives. A colossal dividend of this pelf goes to medicines and supplies, the balance to blanket utility bills and food. The relatives has no money in search rehabilitation. The plight is a little rescued by means of the videos, which are filmed and published before the online pharmacies rehabilitation center.

    I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours today,
    but I never discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It’s beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the net will probably
    be a lot more useful than ever before.

    and reading very informative articles here.

    everything is accessible on net?

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but
    I had to ask!

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas?

    What i don’t understood is in reality how you’re no longer actually a lot more smartly-appreciated than you may
    be right now. You’re very intelligent. You already know
    thus considerably in terms of this matter, produced me in my view imagine it from a
    lot of varied angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be interested until it is something to accomplish with Girl
