Here is the submission:
My name is Charles Patrick Adkins and I am 39 years old. I am from Lincoln Park, Michigan. I am a full-time blogger. I started back in 2006, as a “half hearted” left of center blogger and writer. I was totally anti-Bush and Anti-Iraq war. As I continued to blog, I began to see what the Democratic Party had become; which is much different from the Democratic Party of the FDR or even LBJ or JFK era.
On December 22, 2006, my blog was hacked and I lost it all. I had over a year’s worth of writing on that blog. I could have quit and I really thought about doing just that; but I did not. By the time this happened, I had decided that the Democratic Party was no the party that I wished to associated with as a supporter. So, a few days later, on December 28, 2006; I started Political Byline on Blogger. All I had was an older computer and quite a bit of time on my hands. For three solid years, I wrote for next to nothing; luckily, I live with my folks, so I had some support. However, I was doing what I loved.
My political beliefs have changed a good deal. The occupy Wall Street demonstration stupidity is a perfect example of why I no longer vote Democratic Party. Not because I am some kind of a racist, or even rich person —-heck, I do not have any capital invested in my blog at all. However, I do blog to defend the business people. The main issue with the Democratic Party and their friends occupying Wall Street is that they fault financial success and I am sorry to say is just morally wrong. Tell me, since when is being a success at what you do — whether it be financial, personal or whatever —- a crime?
To be honest, I do not even have a business license yet, I just do not make enough to file tax reports. I would like to be able to do that; but, one-step at a time. I have made enough to reward myself with the occasional steak on the grill. However, with me; it is all about doing what I love to do and that is write and express my feelings, without fear of going to jail — that my friends is beauty of America. The way I see it is this, if I happen to start making enough to form a corporation and file taxes, all the better for me!
Again, as I have said on my blog, many times; for me, it is not about “Left or Right” it is about right or wrong —- and the Democratic Party and their Occupy Wall Street friends are simply wrong, as is their leader President Barack Obama, this is why his polices have failed for the last three and a half years. This is also, why he most likely will not be reelected in 2012.
Thanks for reading!
