>So it occurs to me that no one is actually reading this thing anyway, and I don’t know why I bother pouring so much time into writing it. But, I do it anyway.

I write because it is one of the basic things I am entitled to do by living in this country.

If I want to, I can bitch about any damn thing I want, as long as I don’t do so in a manner that is threatening or injurious to others in an extreme sense.

But then again, I know that there are members of government who want to supress the free speech of those who speak out against them. They want to take away a freedom that was a part of the very basis this country was founded on!! What the hell are they thinking?

Theoretically, by the nature of “free speech,” I could bitch about anything I wanted, the way the country is being run, what color I think the white house should be, or some other crap. But with the so-called Patriot Act and other crap like that, if I speak my mind, I may be viewed as a terrorist or some other random bullshit that just makes me angry.

We were given the right to assemble in the constitution too, but now anymore if ya try to do that, you are viewed as a terrorist, or someone trying to cause trouble and make life generally miserable for those around you.

I still think the government needs to back off and allow us to have the freedoms that we were so entitled to at the outset of this thing. Then again, I also think the government needs to stay out of silly things like a woman’s body and what she is allowed to do with it.

Just as much so, I think the church needs to stay out of government. Don’t get me wrong. Even though I don’t believe the same things as you, I still think you are entitled to believe what you want to. But don’t try to force your views on me because It will NOT work. I have a set of ideals and beliefs in my head, and the majority of people do not agree with me. So what? I am allowed to.

So many decisions are made in government based on what is “morally right.” Who the hell gets to decide what exactly that is anyway? Do a bunch of people get together, stuffy old white guys in suits, perhaps, and say “well I wouldn’t do something like this, so it must be immoral.”

We are quickly turning into what our forefathers came here to get away from, and it really sucks. We should be able to speak our mind without fear of persecution or injury. We should be able to say how we feel without worrying about someone putting us in jail for our beliefs. If you think this doesnt happen, you are ignorant and dont watch the news or read the papers. Unfortunately, it happens every day in this country.

You forget this is a country in which some states have laws saying that you cannot spit on the sidewalk on Tuesdays, and you goat may not wear pants at any time. (look ’em up, it’s true. i think the website is stupidlaws.com, or something like that.)

Enjoy your freedoms while you have them. They won’t last forever, trust me!
