Chicago, IL—I was raised in the Windy City under a politically conservative Democratic Administration. The Party boss and Mayor was the late Richard J. Daley not to be confused with his pathetic son, Richard M. Daley.
A single mother collecting welfare who avoided parenting at every opportunity raised me. I was really supervised by various friends of my mother or nobody. Saying my mother raised me is a misstatement.
As a nine year-old I was taught to prepare my own meals, clean up after myself and to never answer the door should someone knock. I’d not see my mother but for three or four times a week and she’d be quickly gone again. I always got myself to school and never once did she offer to help me with my school homework.
My mother was destroyed by the Socialist welfare system that simply sent her money with no strings attached. A little more than once per year we’d get evicted. Our property would be carried out to the street in the snow. As a result I had attend 13 different grammar schools.
My childhood was an ugly experience that ended when I was 14, lied about my age and took up residence in a nearby apartment while working at a hotdog stand after school. Like most children I just assumed what was going on in my life was perfectly normal and the same for everyone, or at least those without a father in the house.
My mother was made totally dependent and was owned by the Liberal Wing of the Democratic Party. All she cared about was the monthly checks and the crappy canned food she was given for me to eat by the state. To my mother Republicans and Conservatives were evil.
I grew to hate Liberal idealism and embrace the idea of breaking free from any form of dependence upon government.
I’m a Libertarian at the Conservative side of the political spectrum. That does not make me uncaring or evil.
I want and demand limited government, taxes and intrusion in my life. The best government is the one that’s not constantly making news for new programs and new wars.
I want and demand prosperity and human rights for all. I want maximum Liberty and Freedom. I want equal opportunity for a superior education and jobs for every American.
I absolutely despise seeing America’s children sent off to fight in foreign wars and returning home in body bags or otherwise disabled. The Swiss have the right notion to stay neutral no matter what.
I simply believe all things happen better without government intervention.
I want to see the end of the deeply flawed death penalty and serious controls on government prosecutors that have lost sight of justice or fairness.
Are the things I want and demand really so radical? Isn’t this what all politicians promise and then never deliver?
I ask that my Leftist friends understand where I came from and tolerate my position.
The track record of Communists and Socialists everywhere has become a litany of government murder, tyranny and misery. I can never understand how empty promises of the Far Left Wing politics can be so popular.
I have to ask, are members of the Left Wing blind and deaf? Can they not see the corruption and destruction to our culture and way of life?
