Skip to comments.ZOT! Hello [and goodbye] to all on this board and I have a question
Posted on 01/11/2005 11:26:36 AM PST by marykatherine05
My name is Mary Katherine, and I reside in the state of Ohio. I am a registered Republican. I grew up in a small town with very strict parents, attend church every Sunday, and have generally tried to live a good and decent life. I have been married for 15 years, have 3 children, and I am a stay at home mother. I am personally opposed to abortion, I believe in small government, and I cheered when welfare was overhauled. I am personally opposed to gay marriage, and I deeply believe this country needs to do more about the divorce rate in this country. My father was a steel worker who didn't miss a day of work in 35 years. My mother was a housewife. I still visit them regularly even though they live 5 hours away from me.
I think if you met me on the street or at the supermarket we would probably like each other.
However, everyone on this board hates my guts. I voted for John Kerry, so, therefore, according to you, I am a pig with no values.
I come here, desperately trying to understand why that is.
If you haven't stopped reading by now, maybe I could explain the reasons for my vote.
I am a fiscal conservative. I find W's reckless spending troubling.
I believe in religious freedom in this country. So therefore, just because I personally oppose abortion, how can I expect every American who does not share my faith to abide by that as well?
I believe in the Constitution. Therefore, even though I oppose gay marriage, if the constitution affords gay Americans certain rights, who am I to deny them?
Finally, I do not believe the war in Iraq was executed in the appropriate way. I do not support it in its current form.
So there it is. You all hate me for only one reason - the vote I placed on November 2nd. My only hope is that someday, somehow, you could all have a little less hate for those who don't share your beliefs. Thank you for reading this.
Here is .35 cents, call someone who cares what you think
And you find the Kerry camp to be exemplars of sound financial thinking, do you?
Thank you for reading this.
Because John Kerry was a lying communist traitor. We know this and tried to warn you. You voted for him anyway - you $hit on this vietnam vet, again!
typical response I expected.
thanks for re-affirming exactly what I thought all of you were like - just all full of hate.
Have you read the Bible lately? Maybe you should.
No, just a dumbass with no clue.
You signed up today to post this? This is highly suspect, as you have not had any time here to be "hated" for voting for John Kerry.
Could this be a troll letter, perhaps? Is there ozone in the air?
Wrong. I hate you because you voted for a traitor.
Hint - saying that something is so does not make it so. But, since you're into that through process (or lack thereof), I can see why you voted for Kerry.
I hate you.
I do not hate you for voting for John Kerry. That is your business, your decision, and your Constitutional right as an American. I do, however, dislike the fact that you had to post a vanity thread in order to tell us all about it.
Throw in "racism" and "disinfranchisement" and you'll hit the troll trifecta.
You came looking for the zot, me thinks!
Someone needs to inform the Viking Kitties, the trolls are thick today!
