This is my response to a post from a private Facebook group on Anarchist philosophies. The author of this post is a self-described Anarcho-Communist speaking against Anarcho-Capitalists.
A few months back, I wrote a controversial post about abortion, commenting that an unborn child should have a chance at life even if the woman is raped. It was not well received. However, after recent events in Alabama, it seems I'm not the only one who feels this way. I’ve been turning this topic over and over in my mind. I decided to take a closer look at the rape-victim pro-choice point of view; as they say “her body, her choice;” trying to understand if there is a middle ground somewhere on this particular subject.
I used to have this idea that the Christians were like, “Hey pagans… you should try Christianity.” And the pagans were like, “No thank you.” Then the Christians were like “hey, it turns out we have these holidays that are just like yours!” And the pagans said, “In that case, OK!”
It was nothing like that. Not even close.
Recently in a discussion, my concerns were dismissed with one simple line.
I was told that if I did not vote I had no right to bitch about the direction of this country and its effects on my life. Really? Is that true? If you don’t vote, you have no right to complain?
This got me thinking: What right do I have to complain about a system I refuse to participate in?
Dear Trump Voter,
I know the coming elections are coming up soon, and I’m trying to make a decision about who to vote for. If I’m going to vote in a system funded by theft and dedicated to the unjust redistribution of wealth, I need to do some homework to make sure I select the best mob boss.
This is where you come in.
I need your help understanding why I should vote in favor of Trump over the other candidates.
There are just WAY too many things that need to be addressed, too many topics that need to be covered, too many angles that need to be discussed. There is so much nuance to any single subject that it's hard to stop on just one and fully flesh out every aspect of the story in a way that actually matters.
It's much more about the fatigue of having an enormous amount of subjects that need to be covered (mainly out of attempting to correct media bias and irresponsible reporting), and not nearly enough hours in the day to cover them all.
This is the first of a series called "Letters to a Lefty." Single mothers tend to vote democrat whereas married women tend to vote republican. This has much to do with the fact that single parenthood would be nearly impossible without handouts from the state to replace the role of the father. Please enjoy!
