So, I'm a Millennial and a leftist. Zot away (Froggy Mod says "Adieu")

Posted on 02/24/2014 3:17:38 PM PST by Millennial Lefty

So, I lurk on Free Republic quite a bit. Usually it's to read some of the outrageous comments some post here and some of it is to see what your opinions are on certain articles that also get posted elsewhere.

So, a little bit about myself. I'm in my 20s and of Hispanic origin. I was born in New York but moved to Florida when I was three years old. I'm what you guys would consider a "socialist". I don't consider myself a socialist, I'm a supporter of the free market economy except I favor strong government regulations.

While on many issues am probably to the left of the Democratic Party there is one issue I agree with the Republicans but it isn't an issue that would ever sway me to vote for the Republican Party. That issue is gun rights. I love guns and I believe the 2nd amendment is a fundamental right to the people of the United States. I don't believe in a ban on "assault" weapons or on accessories like there is on certain sized magazines. I also support the right for one to properly defend themselves with or without deadly force with your legally owned firearm.

However, on economic and social issues I side with the DNC. I'm probably to the left of the DNC on most issues.

So anyways, ask away.

So you think the government belongs to Wall Street and the president should protect them no matter what crime they commit?

Do you not realize that “strong government regulations” favor cronyism with big business, to keep the little upstarts out?

Welcome, Millenial. This is not a question, just anm observation, really... As long as we can agree on something as important as the 2nd Amendment, I believe that is the beginning of working out our differences and “agreeing to disagree,” remaining civil and amicable toward one another...

I remember talking to a guy one time who said he was a conservative on economic and 2nd amendment issues, but was in favor of abortion because it cut down on the number of Hispanic babies.

Kind of the flip side of you.

Well, I’ll start by asking you if you don’t mind engaging in a reasoned, non-inflammatory discussion. I like reasoned discussions and debate, not flame-throwing, riot-gear matches you find round here sometimes.

I teach my kids that the legislature makes laws.

Where did you learn that it’s ok for the President to change a law that was voted on by Congress and that he signed into law? And why do you stand for it for one second?

(And that's one at between 18 and 20 weeks gestation, meaning it is, for all intensive purposes, legal to do even under Texas' new abortion law.)

Tats and piercings?

(And don't try Barack's line about some stupid video.)

Why did Obama not consider this an act of war against the United States?

Bummer, I wish he hadn't been zotted yet. I think that only though engagement can we see the (however disturbed) mental processes going on with liberals.

I'm I saying we could save this one? Probably not. Am I saying we can save lots of others? Definitely not. But we can find the strategies to save some, and that's important to do.

“I’m a supporter of the free market economy except I favor strong government regulations.” In other words, you don’t support the free market.

But keep reading, my dear child, your mind is more open than most and, indeed, you just might learn something.

My sentiments exactly. It's amusing that these leftists think we just don't know their position because if we did, we'd surely agree. Most of us know their positions better than they do, and vehemently disagree.

Millennial,

You were here briefly, are now gone having accomplished nothing and will soon be long forgotten. I’m sure Sir Walter Scott has souls such as yours in mind when he penned these words:

“The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonored , and unsung.”

“It’s About Time”

All the kids are throwing sticks:
Politics
Nights on the wire!
Everybody wants to get by
‘Ts a test of the times!
A test of my rights
It’s on pretty lady

Born to be angry
Grip of the vice
Click on the trigger, girl;
Sip wine on ice!

It’s about time
Best to rewind
You better blow
Pistols, pistols...

Lights low
Go on baby go
It’s a bad time
I’m on a tight rope!

Don’t go-o!
It’s about time, It’s about time!

Everybody come on
Lights on
The beaches
Everybody come on; delight!

Close the front door
I don’t wanna go
Like I’m on the ‘Truman Show!’

Best to let go
You don’t wanna know
You better blow!

Lights low
Go on baby go
It’s a bad time
I’m on a tight rope!

Don’t go-o!
It’s about time, It’s about...

All the years of paradise
Paradigms
Paralyze
Us
“You’re crazy!”

All the cards you’ve organized
Shuffled twice in front of my eyes
Everybody has
Needs, wants, a cold gun!

Lights low
Go on baby go
It’s a bad time
I’m on a tight rope!

Don’t go-o!
It’s about time, It’s about...PISTOLS

Regarding the social issues, those are usually considered to be areas concerning sexuality, abortion, gay rights, etc. Since you are a self-described millennial, you would obviously be too young to remember the structure of family life 50 years ago. Things were not perfect then, but the disintegration of the family in the past half-century is a tremendous contributor to crime, poverty, and runaway government spending. (Regarding the latter point, when families break up, government intervenes, at great cost; a huge chunk of state budgets pertains to dealing with broken families and the repercussions of broken families.) In other words, the liberal view on these issues - when adopted by the masses - is utterly destructive of society. And to be fair, conservative are not immune from the charge of contributing to family breakdown and irresponsible sexuality, in their behavior if not in their professed beliefs.
