Maybe It’s Not About Sexism or Racism: Maybe They’re Fed Up

“On Tuesday, 59 million people voted for Donald Trump and made him our President-elect. Did they do it because they’re racist? They hate women? Immigrants? Free trade? Taxes? The Hollywood elite? The establishment? Maybe. Maybe to all of that, or some of it. Or maybe they hate the other 59 million people who voted for Hillary Clinton. The Clinton voters overwhelmingly chalk up the election results to the fact that Trump voters are racist and sexist. I think those Trump voters hate the Clinton voters not because they actually are racist or sexist, but because they’re constantly being told that they … Continue reading Maybe It’s Not About Sexism or Racism: Maybe They’re Fed Up

Neither Clinton Nor Trump Is An Option To This Millennial

“I agree with supporters of both candidates when they tell me the other one is unacceptable. America deserves better than this, and I cannot believe the country has wasted six billion dollars to determine which of these terrible people will be the executive for the next four years. Frankly, we could’ve solved huge problems in this country with that money, voluntarily applied. I have another option. One who is on the ballot in all 50 states. One who would like to lower taxes, legalize cannabis, have a non-interventionist foreign policy, bring troops home, support a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage, … Continue reading Neither Clinton Nor Trump Is An Option To This Millennial

Terminally Ill Woman Throws Party Before Assisted Suicide

“The right to end one’s life is a profound and intimate consideration. There are some solid arguments in favor of making sure that those opting to end their lives are doing so for the “right reasons” and that they haven’t been pressured into ending things due to growing medical bills or “not wanting to be a burden” on family or community. However, there are many individuals enduring immense suffering and excruciating pain, for whom things will not be getting better, and for whom death is a welcome end. For those, the right to painlessly end their suffering, to be under … Continue reading Terminally Ill Woman Throws Party Before Assisted Suicide

Why Libertarians Should Applaud the SCOTUS Ruling Against Texas Abortion Regulations

“I found this case particularly clear cut as a libertarian — this was an obvious case of over-regulation, which caused more than half of the clinics in Texas to close. If any other industry faced this sort of punitive regulation, conservatives would have been up in arms, but since it was the abortion industry, many were perfectly fine with the law.” Read more at The Libertarian Republic.

In The Wake of Orlando: Gay Men Can’t Donate Blood

“The FDA may want to reconsider these standards, as many who wanted to donate were turned away due to presumptions about their lifestyle and risk. In the meantime, thank goodness the blood banks have so many people lining up to donate to the victims that they have to tell them to come back tomorrow. This is a good problem to have. I wish we had this problem more often.” Read more at The Libertarian Republic. Continue reading In The Wake of Orlando: Gay Men Can’t Donate Blood
