Election Day in the USA

Where I live we do not have early voting, but I was able to get in and out in no time....it is absolutely crazy lines in some parts of the country....





I was an independent until the 2008 elections.  In my state, you must be affiliated with a party in order to vote in the primaries....so I registered Democrat....the Hubs, he's Republican....I'm a screaming liberal....and I fear for this country if the Republicans end up in the White House...it's not just the twit that is running, but all the tea-lunatics that also would have some power....because he has not stood up to his party on anything or stood firm on issues....and he has no concept of what it is to struggle....

I am an independent, educated woman who should be in control of my life choices, not some white guys in Congress or my employer....

I believe that if people love each other, they should be able to commit to that relationship in a legal way...no matter what their gender....

I believe that I should be paid the same as a man, if I am doing the same job and doing it as well....and I should be promoted equally...

I believe that rape is rape...and it is a crime and not God's will....

I believe that immigrants should be assumed innocent of any crime, regardless of their skin color, unless it is proven that they have done something illegal....we are all descendants of immigrants who came here for a better life....

I believe religion has NO place in politics, and I don't even care if my president believes in God....there is suppose to be separation of Church and State in our country....and just because you believe something....does not mean you have the right to mandate that I believe the same thing...we fought a war to earn our freedom from such tyranny....

I believe that religion is an individual choice, and noone's beliefs or God should take precedence over someone's else's beliefs or God....

I may make some people angry by these statements, but this is who I am.....I don't make politics an issue on this blog (but you should see my Facebook feed!)  And I felt it was high time to just state who I am and what I believe...
