I think that having children has greatly affected my political choices. Once you realize that, every time you say “gimme gimme gimme, take all the freedoms you want but gimme stuff Mr. Government!” that you’re actually stealing from the next generation (or, in a parent’s case, your own children), you begin to look at things differently.
You’re robbing them of their tax dollars, their liberty, and, ultimately, their future. As is always the case as a parent, you eventually put aside your selfish needs and wants and are compelled to do things with their benefit weighted above your own.
So, two more reasons I’m a conservative: Silas and Brianna.
Just a random micro-blog. I may do more, smaller updates in the future as opposed to the 300 word ones nobody reads 😉
