Making Decisions for Others

Adults have to make decisions around such things as marijuana use, sex, gay sex, abortion, pornography, diet, gun ownership, military service, church attendance… A Republican is someone who imagines he knows best how to make these decisions for others, even for people twice his age. He think he should have the right to punish people who do things differently than he thinks best. What is most disgraceful about Republicans is they have done no thinking at all on these matters. They just want to impose their religious dogmas on others. These beliefs are arbitrary with no evidence whatsoever to back them up, just a gut feeling based on childhood indoctrination. It amounts to a refusal to acknowledge the constitutional right of others to freedom of religion.
