It’s easier to peg me as _________.

Get it?

People find out about something that I believe (or do), and rather than ask me honestly about it, hear me out, or engage in discussion, they pigeon-hole me into a group of people that they better understand (they think).  I think most people feel this way at some point, and that’s why these things have been spreading pretty quickly all over the internet:

SO, here is a list of some stuff I believe, just for fun.  What group do you think people automatically put me in?

And Here We Go…

  1. I believe that marijuana (along with all currently illegal substances) should be decriminalized.
  2. I believe that the government has no right at all to define marriage as between a man and a woman.
  3. I believe that America is quickly moving toward a fascist state.
  4. I believe that spanking my children is ok.
  5. I believe abortion is a crime.
  6. I believe that the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 should be done away with.
  7. I believe that everyone should be able to own a gun.
  8. I believe that the minimum wage is one of the worst things for our country.
  9. I believe that a higher tax rate for richer people/bigger corporations is detrimental.

I believe a lot more things, too.  This was just fun for a game, and meant to put a nice little break on the intensifying conversation of my previous entry.  Go there if you dare.

As always, reply openly and honestly.  I won’t delete your responses.  I hope that you are nice and respectful, but that doesn’t come easy to everyone.  I also hope that we don’t miss your point because you’re hiding behind political correctness…

Maybe you know where the balance is there.

Thanks for reading.
