Quote: If love was an adjective, we would all be a bunch of hippies! - Anonymous
Politics: I think politics is almost overwhelming, personally. There are so many elephants and donkeys that it seems that everyone is a combination of them both. I am a republican. I believe that we should fight war because we NEED it. Not because it was the easiest decision to make. I like to argue politics, although I will not argue with my elders, only to my peers. Politics is something we need to make the world a better place, not to become the ruler of the world. Although politics IS about power. We need to take the power in moderation.
Suicide: I think suicide is wrong. But I feel as though a person SHOULD have the right to do whatever s/he wants to do with his body and life. As I see it, if someone is going through something VERY wrong or hard, they need the support from fellow friends and family. If they do not get that support, I think I would be considering taking my life. But If someone is taking their own life, they should think about why thy are doing this and what good will it do to the people and world around them.
Gay rights: I believe homosexual people have a right to love anyone they please. I do think it is wrong though. I think God made Eve for a very good reason and Adam for a very good reason. Even though I think a person should get to love anyone, they should consider this: Do you believe that what you are doing is at all wrong?
Abortion: I believe abortion can be helpful in certain situations and can be used dangerously. If a young girl gets raped and is too young for giving birth, I think abortion would be a reasonable choice. But if a woman gets pregnant because she is lazy, she should she have to take the consequences. Abortion does have side effects on the woman though. It can scar the womb, and slowly, if used more than once, make the woman barren. It also costs much money.
Religion: My opinion on religion is that it should not be forced upon someone. It should be a true wanting God, or whomever. Someone should go into religion because they think it is right, not someone else.
Plastic surgery: My opinion on plastic surgery is it is okay. There is no reason why someone should be held back from it or pushed into it. It is a free choice.
Sex education: My opinion on sex education is that it is good to have it in schools and such. Kids should learn what to do in a pressuring situation like this. What protection to wear if they are going to have sex. What pills to take before or after sex. What direction to take if a girl gets pregnant. What to do with a baby.
Separation of church and state: My opinion on separation of church and state is that it is good and bad. It is good because then people do not get offended by other religions. It is bad because teachers, kids, etc. cannot witness to people in school and at public events. I believe the government needs to get a clearer law on this subject because some religious things pass and others do not.
Animal rights: My opinion on animal rights is they need to be enforced more. I hate seeing billboards that say they are killing horses for their hooves and such. I really care for my own animals. I think states should really have rules about the animal rights. I think it is wrong for make-up to be tested on animals also. I would rather have my puppy, Sparky, than my Maybelline make-up.
Death penalty: My opinion on the death penalty is that it is very good to have it. I do think it should be used in moderation though. Let's not have the states on a killing sprees here. I feel if someone is to be put to death, they case should be carefully looked over before the death penalty is served. If someone has the death penalty and they are innocent and find evidence after they are dead, we will not have that sentence for a very long time!
Choose at least three of the following and give us your opinion on each. Delete whichever ones you do not choose, and bold the topics you do choose (not your answers).
The Pledge of Allegiance: My opinion on the Pledge of Allegiance is strong to keep the words 'Under God' in it. I think Christians should have right to be some part of the schools. It is tradition anyway. They have been saying that for as long as I have known.
Pornography: I think pornography is very wrong because it is just not "right", it is very sick. I think either people should put safe guards on the sites or get rid of it all together.
Affirmative action: I think affirmative action is very WRONG. I do not support discriminating people, whether it be for race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender. I think they should be mature enough to figure out that they are as smart, kind, polite, and nice as other people are. I know someone who is sexist, against females. He thinks women cannot do as much work, or do it as efficiently, as males can do. (I am very sorry. I thought it meant it was against discrimination. I am SO sorry.)

-What makes life worth living for you? My family, friends, and pets makes life worth living for me because they need my too, and if I died I would break my love's heart. My love is my family, friends, and pets.
-If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be? Why? I would meet Jesus because he IS my life, I live for him.
-If you could kill one person, famous or not, who would it be and why? (**Note, this is just for fun, if you will. We're not asking you to go out and actually kill someone.) I might kill one of my rapists because, well, he raped me.
-What makes you unique? Any weird quirks? Strange habits? I have three children, my two girls are twins. When I take showers, I take the dead skin cells off.
-If you could become famous, what would you want to be known for? I would want to be known for my photography.
-Describe yourself in five words. loving, self-disciplined, caring, generous, helping
-Name one good and one bad thing about yourself. A good thing about myself is that I have plenty of self-control to take care of my kids. A bad thing about me is that I am such a perfectionist, I tend to be a bit grouchy around people.
-What is your favorite childhood memory? My favorite childhood memory is when my mother I would go to the park and she would just talk to me about girly-girl things.
-Guilty pleasures. We all have them. What is yours? It can be a movie, tv show, food, etc. Then tell us why you like it. I like rubber duckies because my friend's brother and I had an inside joke about one named Andrew.
-What is the best gift you have ever received? Why? The best gift I ever received was a pair of mittens and a hat. I was expecting a doll house that year for Christmas and I got so upset. But I learned that life does not always throw you things you want, it throws you things you need.
-Would you want people to laugh or cry at your funeral? Why? I would want people to laugh at my funeral because I want to be remembered as a funny person, not a sad or depressing person.
-What would you do if you were Frodo and you had the ring? If I were Frodo and I had the ring, I would wear it around my neck because it is stylish.
-What civil rights issue do you believe in and/or support the most? I believe in the civil rights issue to help the blind and visually impaired.
