Out Of The Polls and Out Of The Closet
Nov 8, 2012 | Views: 334
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?
