I am not a hate-monger

I am a Tea Party conservative. I am not a hate-monger as the Left and Hollywood likes to call me. 

I believe in personal accountability and responsibility. I believe in smaller government, abolishment of the IRS and implementation of Fair Tax or Flat Tax. I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe that our welfare system needs to be set up to encourage individuals to get off the welfare rolls instead of making welfare a lifetime lifestyle.

I believe in term limits and I believe the president should respect the office of the president and not treat it as an opportunity to rule.

I have my views about abortion, but it is none of my business about someone’s personal choice. I have my views about the homosexual lifestyle, but it is none of my business what choices an individual makes regarding their life. I believe that if a couple of the same sex spends their life together they should have the legal right to make decisions for each other in times of health issues, death, etc. 

I am not a hate-monger. I have different views than the Left and the Hollywood elite. However, by them calling me a hate-monger they become exactly what they are calling me. 

I will continue to fight those that want bigger government and government rule.

I will continue to fight for term limitations, and abolishment of the IRS. I am not a hatemonger.

I want people to thrive and succeed and not be dependent on the government.
