Now is the time to forget standard political policy. To forget religious dogma. To forget that people are different.

They don’t benefit us— real people who want more than All three have provided. We need to stop being afraid of who we are. Stop hiding behind beliefs, you’ve been spoon fed since birth, that turn one against the other. Parents against children. Race against race. Neighbor against neighbor. Stop depending on government and divisive religious tones to help you. Their extortion rhetoric and requirements are turning our societies into hateful distance mobs. We have lost the ability to think for ourselves. To be individuals. Our higher most tolerant and accepting senses are quivering beneath a blanket of hate.

 

Religion, political policy and race are creations erected by man to herd people into different groups to control us. This needs to stop. Walls need to crumble. Lines need to be erased. We are all here on borrowed time. We all eventually die. What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? Quick story: My mom showed this strong woman in front of outsiders. I say outsiders because, like most of us, she had a different perspective inside her personal life. She was well liked and respected by many for good reason. At her wake, I realized just how many people cared about her. The room wasn’t big enough. People had to take turns inside to pay their respects. It wasn’t until I faced the prospect of death that I became more aware of who I’d become because of outside influences. And questioned if that person was the real me.

And thus, my journey to me began.

I was once a devoted catholic. I hated Sinead O’Conner for ripping a picture of the pope on national television. That’s how bad I was. Looking back…I have no idea why it bothered me so much. Could be my Swiss cheese memory, but I don’t think so. I hated her because Catholics hated her. I wasn’t acquainted with the First Amendment or higher thought, yet. The murmur of hatred buzzed around the religious world tainting all of us followers. If you hear something repeated, it becomes truth without logical or rational thought. Critical thinking gets chipped away and brainwashing takes over. That’s a fact.

I am challenging everyone who reads this to pass on the sentiment in their own words. This is a movement to get rid of intolerance and hatred propagated by the self-proclaimed elitists and entitled who only care about themselves. If they cared about anyone else, they wouldn’t incite hate and violence. They would remember that children get hurt. That their words destroy families. And cause innocent people to die.

Spread the word. Your word. Your love. Your tolerance. Your acceptance. Show the world we all have stories to tell. Share that part of you you’re afraid to divulge to the world for fear you will be rejected. I won’t reject you. Fear dies when people become intimate, acquainted. People don’t always do bad things because they are bad people. Most of the time they do bad things in the name of their perceived good.

Thank you for reading,

Genuinely Yours,

What I want in a leader of our country.

1-To keep religious beliefs out of their policies.

We are a nation of eclectic thoughts and beliefs. When a party chooses their beliefs, they discount everyone else’s. They say our country was born under freedom of religion, but that was not true. Despite what religion you were, you were forced or nagged into going to church because that’s what the leaders dictated. All religions try, whether subtle or demanding to recruit as many people as they can. And isn’t it funny that most religions describe women as second class citizens? If given the status we deserved from the beginning, men wouldn’t use terms such as needing championing to describe who we are as human. We don’t need to be coddled we are pretty damn strong. Religions should focus on bringing people together. Protect the children, the weak, the sick, the poor, not focus on stripping half the population of their rights.

Marriage Rights fall under this as well. Attraction is part of nature. Who we are attracted to falls under the realm of the unknown and uncontrollable. Oh and how some people hate that. We have laws that mostly protect children, (I would love for those polygamists who rape children claiming religion as their guide, to be jailed for the rest of their lives. Funny how those children aren’t protected or even come up on any politician’s radar.)

Pence is a perfect example of power undermining religious beliefs. A religious man (whether I respect their views or not) would not continue to back a serial sexual predator.) I do wonder if they made a deal with him about instantly impeaching Trump so Pence becomes president if votes go Trump’s way.

The only object truly separating us from each other is the concept of organized religion. Rules made a long time ago, written down and labeled divine. I do believe in GOD. I don’t believe separation is divine, it is the concoction of early men’s fears.

Abortion…

It’s a woman’s right to her body. Not the dude who knocked her up accidentally. Not the government. Not God’s. Not those people who stand in front of planned parenthood clinics holding signs and who subsequently vanish when it comes time to answer for the baby’s welfare, potential living conditions or if the child will die from abuse or malnutrition. So Back Off.  

2- Our economy.

The rich should not be getting richer and the poor should not be getting destitute. The trickle down policy, which has been the policy for many presidents, does not work. http://www.faireconomy.org/trickle_down_economics_four_reasons

Maybe at one time it did, but when those who worked hard become successful grew older and eventually handed their empire over to their heirs, the hard work part deflated and the heirs’ head’s inflated. When you don’t know what it’s like to put your blood and sweat into a job, you expect everything to be handed to you. Not everyone is like this, but we are entering an age of the spoiled. They talk about children today being lazy. (Adding my experience to my opinion equals that showing respect, teaching hard work and responsibilities are the parents’ job.)

3- USA defense

Instill policies that bring our nation together. Don’t give the delusional any reason to act out on their abnormal urges. I’m a mother of three, awesome hardworking children. Yes, I get angry when I go into protective mode. Violence shakes my body and plies my imagination with graphic ways to eliminate the threatening problem. But, I don’t act on them or even show aggression. It’s called control. Most of us have it. Those who act on an initial impulse are mentally unstable. We all must take responsibility for our country despite who is running it. We have the power to protect our own. And the cognitive skills to make wise decisions.

Communication is key.

There are more…but at this point you can fill in the blanks.

I have a lot of personal experience dealing with a narcissist, racist, paranoid, money hungry man who objectifies women. He is a great liar. If you were to meet him, you would think me and my siblings were crazy for arguing against him being a good guy. Jokes are a way to be himself without committing to his beliefs.  My mother didn’t leave him even though he made is job infidelity and self-indulgence. Despite his attempts at bringing down our self-esteem and following his circle of hate, we his children, broke free.

Because of what we endured growing up, we see life in a grander spectrum. We know truth and we know lies. They are easy to differentiate. Twenty-five years of being lied too straight in my eyes gives me that skill.

When I watch Trump’s body language and listen to his speeches I see nothing but a bully who has used his name to abuse and take from others all his life. The man is 70 years old. He is the basic dirty old man who refuses to progress into the modern world where women are not objects for men to ogle and use against their will. Of course we had to make a law against it — obviously not everyone got the memo.

I find it hilarious that people believe that he heard something said as truth when in reality he was the one who said it earlier in the day. People are giving the voices in his head credibility and that alone is scary. How does his nonsense get passed people? Why do people let his atrocities slide? I wonder what happened to them to skew their perception of truth. He is the “poster boy for what not to be” and people want him running our country.

It’s really sad that some people will vote for him because he is the republican party leader. And if Charles Manson were to become a republican candidate some people would vote for him too.

Hillary may not be pristine, but she owns a moral compass and will fight for us as a whole and not divide us as a people as Trump has already begun to do. The fact that he says he has more respect for women and to say the things he says about them, the way he treats them, and how he has disrespected his wives, makes me cringe. If his declaration were in anyway true, we as fifty percent of USA population, are fucked.

Wake up!!!! He doesn’t want to make America Great again. He wants to make America his latest conquest and profit off of us. He talks about righting the wrongs of past presidents and yet he wants to go back to policies that had the middle class struggling and the poor destitute.

He talks about giving the wealthy tax breaks so they offer more jobs, trickle down their profits to help the rest of us? The wealthy have so much money they have rooms for their cars, change their toilet bowls as often as they change toilet paper, wipe their asses on gold quilted hankies, have lunch in Paris and Dinner in Italy and yet I have yet to see them make any difference in the rest of the population’s lives. So don’t tell me his policy is to help the rest of us. That’s plain bullshit. (There are a couple of those wealthy people who do share the wealth, but those are the ones who Trump is not talking about. If he did, he’d have to admit shame.)

I can’t really speak about his other policies since he has yet to say what they are. Does he think if he becomes president Isis will turn tail? Hah. They want him to become president. He will be the perfect poster boy for recruitment!

Did you hear what he said about that city in Syria? A question about being a humanitarian? “What do you think is going to happen if Aleppo falls?” she asked.

Trump responded: “I think Aleppo is a disaster, humanitarian-wise. … I think that it, basically, has fallen.”  So basically he said screw them. He doesn’t believe in trying to help all those children being turned into red mist by Russia’s bombing. What a true humanitarian.

All the while trying to divert the question to his own agenda about Clinton as secretary of state making decisions with Obama when she wasn’t even Secretary of state at the time. And people ate up is false diversion geez!

Going to end this for now. Getting a headache just thinking about how easily people are willingly misguided.

Tattoos like love have the same type of permanence. The end of both can be painful and cause tears.
