Since I own my own business I have felt it necessary to hold back my stance on many things as they could cost me my livlihood. I imagine this is the case with a good portion of the population- fear of retribution for openly stating one’s perspectives. So much for First Amendment Rights. Speak out at your own risk and now added to that, you could even be killed for your views in the current state our nation is in!
For those of you who know me, you know full well that I am a woman of integrity, I have a big heart, truly care about people and would never knowingly harm anyone. And if I did so unintentionally I’d go out of my way to own up, take responsibility and I often “take the high road”.
That said, I can no longer be silent. History has already shown us what happens when we turn a blind eye. So here is where I stand and if you are nowhere near the same page as I am or can’t at least agree to disagree, then we may as well call it a day and move on from one another.
I am non-apologetically an elderly, white female with moderate views. I believe in America and its values, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Universal Declaration for Human Rights, equality, liberty and justice for all, law and order, love, peace, kindness, paying it forward. I’m also on the same page as MLK Jr and other great leaders in that I abhor violence.
I believe in God/a Supreme Being and the Golden Rule, i.e. treating others as one would want to be treated, that one makes the bed one lays in and reaps what one sows. I believe that one’s life is what one chooses to make of it and that no matter the obstacles, if one has the will to overcome, they will. I say this from first-hand experience. I could have easily been a victim and chose not to be.
I believe that there is corruption in many sectors of our society and that it is upon all of us to pursue non-violent means to rectify these. Along with that, I believe that fake news from Media, Mass and Social, is one of the most lethal menaces to humanity. It incites hate and divides people and often points us in the wrong direction and is a major source of violence.
I am pro-life, pro-choice for health care and education and pro-environment as well as pro-term limits for “career politicians”. On the flip side, I am anti-Socialism, anti-Fascism, anti-Marxism, anti-Communism and also anti our current welfare system as it has been destroying the family unit by underhandedly advocating single parenthood for decades.
I think that pretty well covers it. Feel free to reach out to me if you feel the need for clarification.
All the best to you and yours,
