Where's the middle ground?

Grunged American FlagSo this really makes me mad. In general, if you don't support a groups cause in politics, you're automatically against them in the worst way possible. There's no middle ground. It's black and white. I hate this because more often than not it gets people painted as something they're not.

An example of this is the LGBT movement. If you support them, you're a tolerant person and a friend. But if you don't for what ever reason, you're automatically a bigoted homophobe. No exceptions. I'm an example of this. I don't support the LGBT movement for religious and moral reasons but I don't hate them. I don't want them to die. I just want them to be tolerant themselves. But no. I'm a homophobic person according to them, solely because I don't support them.

Here's another example. Abortion. On one side of the argument, if you support the pro-choice movement you're either pro-women's rights or you endorse legalized murder. On the other hand if you support the pro-life movement, as I do. You're either a fighter for the lives of unborn babies or anti-Women. Again, there is no middle ground here. You're either Pro-Women or Anti-Women. Or you're Pro-baby or anti-baby. No middle ground.

Here's one final example. The President of the United States of America, Barack Obama. Again with most, you either support the president and his cause or you're a racist butthole. No middle grown there again, with Liberals in this case. This is another thing I have been a victim of. I don't support the president, in fact I hate his policies and can't wait for him to be voted out next fall. Not for a moment though do I hate him, for his skin color or otherwise. Yet, because I don't support him, I'm automatically a racist butthole to liberals. No ifs, ands or buts about it.

The point of all this is that we've become so partisan in this country. There's no middle ground. There's no compromise anymore. This is why our economy sucks. This is why unemployment is so high. This is why it's hard to call us the "greatest country on Earth" anymore. We're too partisan, as a result we're not passing legislation that needs to be passed to better the country.

It's time to make this country the greatest on Earth again. Time to put our partisanship aside and usher in a second Era of Good Feelings. For the benefit of us as a nation.

Hat tip to John for telling me about the Era of Good Feelings.

As a follow up...

This is what I'm talking about, women thinking they have the right to abort God's gift. And those that go against them, are immediately anti-Women, rather than what it is, pro-life.

I have responses running in my head that would be too rude to say. So, I'll let you draw your own conclusions about the tweet.

A few quick political things...

Well hey everyone, it's been a while since I wrote on my personal blog, I've focused so much on BRaysball Talk I've nearly forgotten this one. Anyway, I just want to touch on a few things this morning.

First the Mississippi personhood amendment that was defeated last night. This would have essentially made abortion illegal. It was soundly defeated so of course the liberals are celebrating. They call themselves pro-choice but I wonder sometimes if it really is pro-abortion, in the sense that they prefer abortion over birth. I doubt it but I do wonder sometimes with how fervently they fight to keep that "right".

You hear them all the time. "It's the woman's body." or "Why do you care?" I want you to give one good reason why I shouldn't care that a life is being ended. And it's not the woman's body that's being destroyed. It's the fetus' body that will be disposed of like any other medical waste. You'll also often hear the liberals say that it's "a meaningless lump of cells." Are you freaking serious?! A baby or baby-to-be is never a meaningless lump of cells. It's a gift from God that you are throwing away. They claim to have science backing their argument, but I don't understand how science could possibly back up something so heinous.

My bottom line on this is that abortion is dumb, stupid, evil, murder, etc. When are we gonna learn that life is precious, no matter at what stage of development or age. Liberals will fight to the death to defend or avenge someone they never knew 5,000 miles away in Iraq but start talking about babies being aborted and they change their tune. Is that not Bleep up?

The other thing I want to touch 0n real quickly is the Herman Cain "scandal". If you can even call it that, because thus far, it's nothing more than a he said/she said with absolutely no merit on the women's side.

I just find it a little strange that they would come forward just NOW when it would hurt him the worst politically. But before you say it, yes I know they didn't come forward, they were found, but my point still stands, I still find it a little peculiar that this happen just when he started leading in the polls.

I'm not saying these woman are lying, I don't know for certain either way. I think the fourth woman is lying through her teeth but I'm not certain. And the way the liberals are celebrating it, it's disgusting.

Anyway, those are just a couple things I wanted to touch on this morning. Hope to talk again soon!

[UPDATE, 11:15pm]: Cain was asked again about the harassment charges tonight, here's what he had to say below. And for the record, Romney, even thought I don't like him, gained some points with me for his response.
