I honestly think Bernie Sanders has a good chance of winning the presidency.

And this excites me so much. The man is exactly what this country needs. Seriously go listen to his interview with Seth Meyers. The man actually has common sense. He’s sincere. He can’t be bought and he doesn’t waffle on issues. He speaks his mind and calls it like it is. He has voted consistently on every vote. He’s against citizens united, he’s against all these tax breaks and loopholes for the rich, he is all about freedom from the government like the NSA spying programs he wants to end all of them so we actually have our rights again, he believes health care is a human right and should be free, and that college should be free as well and the education system needs to be fixed. He’s brilliant. He is exactly what we need. So get out there and vote! He doesn’t have millionaires and billionaires and companies funding his campaign like Hillary and every republican. His campaign is funded by regular people making small donations and unions because they know he will be fantastic and ensure worker rights and minimum wage being raised so it’s a living wage. He is all about taking action on climate change and believes that we needs to get off fossil fuels and onto renewable clean energy.
He is perfect.
Please vote for him. Please vote.

I feel like shit today after battling evangelical Christians over how stinking beautiful it is to see Caitlyn Jenner become herself, and having some of them questioning my love for Christ in response. I can’t even imagine how hard it is for people who are transgender to deal with this sort of dialogue from the church. Consider this mainline Protestant exhausted, saddened, and a little bit more educated about the pain of having someone question your own identity.

I will answer to God alone here, and God has told me to love people exactly how they are. People who are LGBTQIA, you are loved and welcome on this blog, and anyone who says otherwise is failing to practice love and compassion. 1 Thessalonians 2:4 English Standard Version (ESV) 4 but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts.
CONUNDRUM

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.
Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.
2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.
Makes you wonder who is doing the math.

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.
Funny how that works. And here’s another one worth considering…
2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money!What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.
Think about it…..and Last but not least:
3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.
Am I the only one missing something?

I am so sick of the media and pop culture waving in my face and telling me what I should and should not accept. People tell Christians not to shove their beliefs down people’s throats, but that is exactly what the liberal media does. They shove their personal beliefs into everyone’s faces and call you hateful and filthy names if you stick with your own beliefs. I am so sick of the hypocrisy. I know a lot of y'all will unfollow me or comment on this post, but that doesn’t change the fact that this is so true.

Some how less authentic than, say, this

Fucking Hell, you people need help. If these are their “True and authentic selves”, then none of you, not a single one of you, can ever bitch about magazine covers again. Explain to me, if you can, how plastic surgery, years of synthetic hormones and pounds of make up on a man make a more authentic woman than airbrushing and photoshop do on actual women?

11 incredible Bernie Sanders quotes show he’s the progressive we’ve been waiting for 

To say Bernie Sanders is the most liberal candidate in the race is not just an understatement, it fundamentally misstates his place on the political spectrum. From a policy perspective, Hillary Clinton has more in common with Republican hopefuls like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush or Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) than Sanders, who advocates for single-payer health insurance, free college for all Americans and rewriting U.S. free-trade agreements. And he has a strong message for his 2016 rivals.

Someone once asked me how many abortions I’ve had because “someone who’s so pro-choice has probably had a few”.

Not one. I haven’t had one abortion.

I simply recognize the number of reasons why people want, need, and deserve to have control over their own bodies and why they are more important than nonviable, non-sentient fetuses.

I will stand for choice until the day I die.

You don’t have to have an abortion to support abortion. You don’t have to be a parent to support parenthood. You don’t have to put a child up for adoption to support adoption.

Millennials agree with Bernie Sanders on almost every issue 

Despite very low levels of trust in the federal government and elected officials (you try growing up under President George W. Bush and graduating into the Great Recession), millennials are more politically engaged in their everyday lives than any previous generation. And on nearly every one of the issues that millennials consider to be the most important, Sanders comes out as the unlikely champion.

American politics is a lot like trying to order a pizza for your friends. The Republican wants pepperoni with orphans tears dipping sauce for the crust. The Democrat wants gluten free pineapple. The Green Party is cool with whatever as long as no as there’s no meat and the animals that went into making the pizza were treated humanly. Meanwhile the constitution party wants pepperoni, borderline theocracy, and anchovies for some godforsaken reason. The libertarian is trying to convince everyone that several small pizzas should be order so everyone gets what they want but he really doesn’t care about dinner because he’s been sneaking down into the basement to eat Chinese takeout with the anarchist
