A Real Individual

individualrights

Yes, if we really want to be an “individual” or “individualist” we have to care about each person’s inalienable rights, the core things that belong to each person, and not protect or one group (or minority).

Sometimes we might not respect their choices or beliefs, but by trying to force them to abide by your thinking, and take those rights away- that is just wrong. I may not agree to what others say, think, or believe; but I respect your right to do so. I only ask that you respect mine.

Every Heart Beats True for the Red, White & Blue

“You’re a grand old flag, you’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of the land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true ‘neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.”

                                                                             -You’re a Grand Old Flag

Happy 4th of July everybody!

4th of july Captain America

Today we celebrate the birth of our country.

CaptainAmericaVictory

A country that was going to be different than any other. One that wouldn’t have a king with all power, but a President with limited power, and the people would be the ones to hold sway. A county based on giving people rights and allowing them to make their own decisions. Happy Birthday United States of America!
