Well, here I go.
I spent 22 years defending the rights of everyone, including disrespectful idiots and geniuses alike. Of course my roots are deeply embedded in this country from both the "native" american side and the immigration side of things. Since the 1600's there have been Hoyts in this land and have had a voice in establishing it's government. I have no clue how far back the Cherokee Nation goes. The ancestry of my family pretty much covers the area from the caucus range west.
This is what I know: we are a country of individuals. Not everyone is considerate. Most really aren't. But my family views being considerate as the best way to be. We do not feel that a government should be taking care of us, but should enable us to take care of ourselves and each other. If all of the families of our nations would look after each other, many of today's problems would go away. Of course, my version of "look after" probably isn't the same as others. It means holding each other to a reasonable standard. No, you can't go rob that liquor store. No, selling bootleg dvd's is wrong. Do Not Do IT!!!!! Smokin' anything that is not edible is not smart.Taking pills that aren't prescribed for you can also be very unwise. If you have been doing this please do whine about how unfair and unjust your life is. If you chose to do things that wisdom says do not do them, you wind up with real justice and not mercy. Sometimes you wind up dead by your choices and other times incarcerated.
