Gay marrige

Maciebaker
Zarroette

Hello, to whoever may read this. I do not mean to offend you but these are my beliefs and I do feel strongly about them. So, be prepared lol. I have always felt gay marrige should be legalized. Quite frankly until this week when it finally was, I never thought it would happen. I'm not a member of the LGBT community, but I'm 100% for it. Don't get me wrong, it's not a total shock to me when people want to use bible verses and Jesus Christ as reasons gays shouldn't marry. I understand completely....

Sound Money is better than Fiat Money for the average citizen.

tlockr
jvlbasic

A sound currency is the foundation of a truly strong economy. By sound I mean to say the currency is dependable, consistent, only imperceptible changes in value over long periods of time, and cannot be easily counterfeited. Typically this is achieved by connecting its value to some rare commodity. Fiat money is typically paper currency that is not redeemable for any sort of commodity. Because it is inconvertible, the preceived value is ever changing in a way that can be very tragic for averag...

LaylaCommunoso

In a socialist economy no parents have to worry about rather or not they can feed there children as well as medical bills. The economy also is better for our children and the generations to come since all are equal and are not subject to a level of class. Also the economic system calls for a 5 year plan this is a great way to structure the growth and focuses of the economy....

Cotton_Candy

Leave a comment or message me if you'd like to take up this challenge. Bear in mind, despite my "rookie" status on this...
