GET OFF THE RAGG: Open Letter

Dear Radical Right Republicans, Tea Partiers, Birthers, Posers, and Hypocrites:

Have you no shame.  We have endless for-profit wars over oil; special interests ruling our Nation; and American’s struggling to live, but all you want to talk about is Religion, Abortion, Guns, and Gays.

So, in an effort to address your issues on a personal level, I offer the following:

I am a DEMOCRAT.   Being a Democrat does not make me a ‘baby-killer’, an atheist, a GUN BANNING fanatic, or a radical enemy combatant.  The most compelling thing about being a Democrat (that touched me), is the parallel between  the core  Democratic principals of caring for the less fortunate and Matthew 25:40 “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”  The second most important is the Democratic stance on EQUALITY  (by the way, God is big on this one too, he doesn’t show favoritism, just ask Peter).   But, for the most part, I classify myself as (1) a Human being of the female persuasion, (2) an American, and (3) a Democrat.

Now to address the CORNERSTONE issues of the Radical RIGHT:

(1) RELIGION

I appreciate all religions (and there are MANY) that celebrate the Golden Rule.   Contrary to popular belief, God speaks many different languages, to many different cultures, and in many different ways.  I am not a GOD HATER, nor do I need a savior (I already have one, thank you).

(2) ABORTION

What a woman chooses to do with her body, is a decision for her to make, after seeking the advise of her physician, her spiritual adviser, and her most trusted allies.   I am PRO-CHOICE/PRO –LIFE.   That does not mean that I advocate FOR or AGAINST ABORTION.  I simply think that a woman should have the choice.  Much like God gives us all a choice.

(3) GUNS

Guns don’t kill people-guns in the wrong PEOPLE’S hands kill people (with some exceptions); we simply need to keep the guns out of the hands of the bad guys and leave the good guys with guns alone.  And, yes, I sometimes do carry a gun (especially while traveling alone); I know how to use it; and I’ve passed all of the per-requisites in order to so legally.

(3) GAYS

You don’t become gay-you are born that way; it’s not a disease.  You either are, or you aren’t.  It’s the way you’re made.  Marriage is between two people who love each other, period (not genitalia requisite).

I am not alone in my beliefs.  There are thousands, if not millions more Democrats just like me.   So, Dear Radical Right Republicans, Tea Partiers, Birthers, and Haters, please keep this in mind when you spread your messages of hate.  The TRUTH may eventually set YOU free.

GET OFF THE R.A.G.G. -Humanity is calling.

Love and Peace.

Average American Democrat (Annie)
