NOTE: The things that I hate are not limited to just this list. These are just 10 of the more political things that make me upset. They’re in no particular order. There are a couple sentences on each, designed to make this a quick 5 minute read. Enjoy reading about the things that cause me so much stress and frustration!
I hate that it’s NOT OK to be against gay marriage and speak out. We have the freedom of speech. There is no constitutional protection from being offended or having someone disagree with you. Some people are just traditionalists. Be as tolerant yourself as you want everyone else to be.
I hate how abortion is ALWAYS spun like it’s strictly a religious issue. It’s not. It’s bad to kill babies because it’s bad to kill babies. It doesn’t matter what any church says.
I hate how more education is ALWAYS considered “a good investment,” “worth it,” or “going to pay off in the end.” That kind of thinking led to the student debt crisis and an oversupply of graduates with no marketable job skills.
I hate how far-left the Catholic Church is. They’ve been there with the Obama administration on the economic issues, yet they’ve been NOWHERE TO BE FOUND on the social issues unless it’s something REALLY BAD, like not banning partial-birth abortion or the recent contraception coverage issue.
I hate how FDR is considered the “best President.” That should be rephrased as “the President who brought about the most radical change.” The best thing he ever did was build the Jefferson Memorial.
I hate this argument in favor of gay marriage: “We should treat everyone equally.” OK, then that means that we should treat the 1% the same as the 99% when it comes to income taxes. Right?
I hate when people say “Roe v. Wade is in the Constitution.” No it’s not. That’s wrong. To say that it’s IN the Constitution is a lot different than saying it’s constitutional.
I hate when people say the Constitution is “living and breathing” or “outdated.” Listen: the reason our Constitution is so great is because, above all, it secures person and property. When the Constitution was ratified, that was the first time that those ideas had ever been put into practice anywhere in the world. That’s why America has been such an exception in the world, and it’s sad how that’s eroded away over the last 100 years.
I hate entitlement thinking. The minute you start depending on something outside of your own control is when you’re going to start having a lot of problems. That’s true of both entitlements, and real life.
I hate the phrase “The War on Women.” Really? The real war on women is this: the left would have them see themselves as part of yet another identity group, rather than as individuals who think for and take care of themselves. There always has to be an agenda.
