Politics, science, and your life!
I would probably fit the more "stereotypical" DD guy. I am a conservative, Christian. I really appreciate this post though because I am pleasantly surprised to find so much diversity in the folks on this forum! It seems we have people of all demographics of life here. How cool! If you had not posted this I would have never known so many different types of people practiced this lifestyle.
I am Christian in my private life and liberal i.e. freedom lover in public. I believe the State should impose minimum restrictions and be an enabler by providing basic necessities like nutritious food, education and health to all. Taking care of people is being Christian and an welfare state helps ensure that. However too much of welfarism can be bad for economy. Also I am anti-immigrants because states derive their existence from boundaries.
My views politically is America is in a crisis. In all my years I have never seen such an inept administration as Biden/Harris. The good news is there is going to be a Big Red Tsunami coming in November. I anticipate the GOP to pickup at least 55 seats in the Congress not to mention all the gains that will be made in state houses and cities throughout the land. My biggest unanswered questions are how did President Biden ever get a 33% approval rating. In my circle of friends and family he wouldn’t even get 3%. I am very conservative politically, I believe in strict law and order, strong border control, and of course I believe when the framers said the rights of the people to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed they meant exactly that therefore all gun control laws are an infringement and unconstitutional. I realize some may consider my views extreme but I have a hard time comprehending how 82 million people supposedly voted for a man that with 40 plus years in elected government offices had no accomplishments other than making him and his whole family wealthy. I question how Joes son Hunter went to China on Air Force 2 when his father was VP and came home with million dollar contracts and I question how Hunter Biden who has no formal training as an artist can sell paintings for hundreds of thousands of dollars to anonymous buyers. Also can anyone tell me who the Big Guy is that Hunter Biden referenced who gets a 20% cut on some of these China deals. I can think of no guy bigger than his father. What a mess our country is in but help is on the way.
I actually think this wasn’t a helpful post for me. Just like the country, I now feel a divide here. A lack of trust. Who will judge me? I guess it really doesn’t matter who judges me. But a few comments scared me. I’m a nurse. I work for the government. I saw Vampire Weekend live before the primaries.
