My first thought when I think about topics that are off limits are politics and religion, I'm sure this is probably the same for many others too. But why should any topic be off limits? We live in the greatest country in the world. We are free to have our own opinions and beliefs so why shouldn't we talk about them? We won't always agree but I can at least respect the fact that you have a brain and put it to use to form your own stance on a variety of topics or issues etc. So I'm taking a leap of faith that you will have the same respect for me and not hire a hitman once you've read what I have to say.
I'm not a huge fan of labels so rather than saying I am a christian or that I don't believe in god or that in politics I bleed blue or red I would prefer to just disclose some of the things that I believe in, support, or that I'm just outright curious about.
Here goes nothing..
- I believe in infinite possibility .
- I believe in supporting our president.
- I believe in both limited government and limited big business.
-I believe that my opinions, beliefs, and values should be based on reason, evidence, and compassion, not on fear, anger, and ignorance.
-I believe prisons should be for violent offenders, not drug addicts.
-I believe each person, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, deserves equal respect and equal rights to pursue a meaningful life.
-I detest greed.
-I believe in a strong military.
-I believe in the separation of church and state.
-I believe in privacy.
-I believe everyone deserves a chance. And if necessary, a second chance.

-I believe taxes should not be used to increase the gap between the very wealthy and the poor.
-I believe in tolerance.
