Out Of The Polls and Out Of The Closet

By alwaysakid

I've seen a lot of commentaries following Tuesday's elections stating that election results may indicate our country has become more liberal. Since the Marriage Amendment in Minnesota, defining marriage as for one man and one woman, failed, maybe it's true. I can remember a time when it was a great scandal for a guy and a girl to "shack up together" without getting married, and now it doesn't gain any thought. And we're seeing the gay lifestyle coming close to similar acceptance.
I was pondering this yesterday as I drove back to Sioux Falls for a funeral, and decided maybe it was time for me to come out of the closet.
I have done very well over the years at driving close to the speed limit, but I really have a need for speed. I get out on the highway and I really want to drive fast, especially if the road curves a lot. I can't help it that I'm that way, I just am. Even as a kid, I often rode my bicycle fast. Apparently I was born with this need for speed.
So, why do people want to persecute me? If I release that inner fast self, I'm hit with mean-spirited speeding fines. And everywhere I go, there are "speed limit" signs to curb me from being myself.
I think it's time for our country to become more tolerant of people like me. Society should stop stunting my inner expression.
After all, we re-elected a liberal president and the news commentators say we're a more liberal country these days. Have we become liberal enough to accept people like me? Should I come out of my speed-restricted closet and swap my old six-cylinder Studebaker for a muscle car?

Never gonna happen. The Liberals love to impose things like that "For Our Own Good". See, they know better than we do what's really good for us. For that matter, they clearly know better than we do how to spend OUR money! I guess in a way it's a good thing that I don't have any wealth for Obama to redistribute... he and the Dems pretty much saw to that in his first term.

Those aren't mean-spirited speeding fines they are in actuality some far left liberal democrat imposed SPEED TAX. (They never miss a chance to TAX & Spend). Of course the money is "FOR THE KIDS" HAHAHAHAHA
