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.

And you find the Kerry camp to be exemplars of sound financial thinking, do you?

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!

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?

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 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.

How can everyone "hate your guts", when you haven't even made one post to FreeRepublic, aside from this Vanity thread?

I'm confused.

Hmmmm.... where to begin? Since you just signed up today, how do you know we "hate" you? My guess is you've bought into the liberal definition of "hate". If someone disagrees with you, it's "hate".

As for why we "disagree" (sometimes pointedly), I think you listed the reasons. You may be a registered Republican, but you are NOT a conservative. I could go into specifics on all the items you listed, but I don't really think you want reasons as much as you'd like to pick a fight to say, "See? You ARE hateful.."

Seems like you are not genuine. Thanks for reading this.

What "certain rights" are you refering to? You oppose gay marriage, George Bush is calling for a Constitutional Amendment banning it, John Kerry is tolerant of civil unions, so Bush should have gotten your vote.

Yep, to liberals, the Constitution is a living document, unless you try to amend it with a conservative amendment, at which point it become sacrosanct and unchangable.

PS to my first post:

You wrote: "...everyone on this board hates my guts."

Lady, until I happened to click and open this thread a few minutes ago, I had never come across you on FR. So your claim that EVERYONE on this board hates you reveals your monumental ego. There literally are hundreds of thousands of people who visit FR every day, and many thousands who actively post. To assume that they all are aware of you and your voting choices is the height of conceit.

Go back to your left-wing mentors and tell them it isn't working.

I don't hate anyone who doesn't give me a clear reason to do so, but I am puzzled by people who think GWB isn't fiscally conservative enough and then turn around and vote for a tax-and-spend liberal. What is the thought process here? You don't like something, so you vote for someone who's going to give you even more of what you don't like? It's just kinda screwy to me, that's all.

I don't hate you. I just hate your liberal values. And you shouldn't call yourself a pig. There will be enough insults in your life without doing them to yourself.

I spent 10 years going to seminary, and earned 3 degrees in Bible in the process. However, it doesn't take that to realize you voted for someone who hates everything associated with Christianity.

What a silly post, troll.

While I doubt you are really any of the things you proclaim, you definitely are ignorant.

That is not hate. Learn more about your candidate next time. If you truly were a conservative, you NEVER would have voted for Kerry. An uniformed voter is a dangerous voter.

BTW, most people here don't "hate" people just because they voted for Kerry. They just don't like frauds, ignorance, and hypocrites. As you fall into more than one category, PREPARE FOR THE ZOT

If YOU had read the Bible lately, you would know it's not your duty just to "root for God's side", it is to do what you can to promote a godly world. I got NO problem with government imposing behaviour on someone who wants to kill unborn CHILDREN.

Thanks for reading this.

what in the world does a "vanity thread" mean. you guys like speak a different language. If I was not clear, this has nothing to do with me. It has everything to do with the amount of hate you all spew when encoutering anyone who supported John Kerry, or any Democrat for that matter.

Don't any of you have family members or friends who are Democrats?

Ah, first we're haters. Now we're horrible. Next we will be mean-spirited.

We don't suffer fools gladly. Which is why you are getting such a hard time.
