Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 127 People

    I still get called out

    for being a rich, selfish pothead with an obsession with sex. #nottrue of me anyhow... But I'm a libertarian, and Dems and Reps will believe anything and everything.

    It's Crazy!

    I am a liberal democrat and I live in Texas. So most people around here don't agree with my views. A kid at my high school asked me who I voted for in the election, so of course I said Barack Obama. He then said, "You support abortion!" And I said no but I believe...
