Warning: I am about to mix religion and politics. In the biblical story of Barabbas, the religious leaders of Roman-occupied Israel have brought Jesus to be crucified. Pilate, seeing that Jesus has committed no crimes, offers the crowd a choice of which prisoner to release: Jesus, or the prisoner Barabbas, an insurrectionist. The religious leaders […]
I am an extremist! I believe in taking the most difficult and harshest view on the hottest topics. I want people to hear my views and immediately hate me and no longer feel the need to talk with me. And what better way to scare someone away than to tell them that I support gun toting, abortion hating, right flank, conservative, bull headed rich white guys. And I am absolutely set in my ways, even if the society tells me that my ideas are obsolete or outdated. And if I am dealing with one of those types of people, then I am a big government loving, tax raising, abortion supporting, liberal minority who thinks that government is the answer to all of my problems.
Do these views appear to be contradictory and no person should be claiming to be both? The answer to both of those is yes. So then what is a moderate? It is a being that cannot exist within this realm of political upheaval that is called the United States. Sure, most of the country may be somewhere between these two parties we call Democrat and Republican. And sure, maybe people are looking for someone who can use ideas from both parties to truly solve the issues that belong to the government. Now as great as that may sound, You forget that those people are gay, facist, vegan, atheists who want to destroy this country and let the terrorists win. The terrorists win? Do you really want that to happen? No, none of us do! So join an extremist side, or choose a side based on who is in front of you, because our lack of bipartisanship in the government is the only way that we can keep this government so funny and unable to complete a single important task.
