    Always.

    I was born a protester, quite literally. Nearly starved myself because I refused to breastfeed. I wanted the bottle... and I got it. Didn't want to sleep in a crib... so at six months they had to let me sleep in a small old bed because I kept climbing out of my crib no...

    But This Time I Walked Away

    I have a few things I feel very strongly about. But...if I truly believe I am right. I will stand my ground and fight. There was a comment made on a thread not long ago; That the women who agree with or support the President are 50 year old women who get a thrill up their...

    My Side

    I try to fight for what I believe in, even when it isn't popular. I have a tendency to alienate people from both ends of the political spectrum... usually because I don't buy into the talking points of political idealism these days. What I mean is that most issues have been...

    From Rocky

    When things got hard, you started looking for something to blame. Like a Big Shadow. Let me tell you something you already know. The worlds aren’t all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and...

    At least to a certain extent. If it's something that's really important to me then you better believe I'll fight for it but if it's just something I think but it's not all that big of a deal...I don't think it's worth really fighting for ya know.

    Too Right I Do

    There are too many people in this world who just roll over and allow things to happen. Too many people who refuse to fight because 'it's too hard' or 'there's no point' or 'I don't want to offend anyone'. These people have to exist- yes they do, but so do we. We the people who...

    I Will

    stand up for what I believe is right, no matter what the personal costs. And believe me, in some instances, it has cost me dearly. Would I make the same decisions again, or do the same things again, if I had the chance? Absolutely.

    You can't truely be your own person if you don't believe in something. I don't like people to step all over me and I don't allow it to happen to my loved ones (friends, family, or animals). I fight for what I believe in and respect people who do the same.

    Fight Without Fists

    I am not afraid to share my beliefs and be myself. I won't impose my beliefs on anyone but at the same time I won't let you impose yours on me. I like the fact that people are different with different beliefs and ways of thinking. I just wish we were all more civil about it.
