I think I'm a reasonable person, for all meanings of the word 'reasonable'. The only thing I'm pretty unreasonable about is my very, very liberal/progressive political stance. I'm unreasonable about things like universal health-care and pro-choice rights and LGBT equality. If that makes me an awful person, then I am an awful person.

I am so very tired of living in the South, in America. It's...pretty wearing everyday to hear about the evil liberals who want to...I don't know...give people rights? I'm a little in the dark on how we're bad people for wanting more rights for people.

If I sound a little...pedantic about this, it's because most of the things I want are pretty standard issue in most 'developed' countries. Perhaps it's because the USA doesn't like to take advice. We are an 'exceptional' nation...

(And no, I don't like Hilary Clinton, but I suppose I don't have any choice. I don't think any of the ten Republican possible candidates are pro universal healthcare.)

I don't always like getting political (which is mostly a lie) but I've been getting more and more strident about public education. Education is a human right and should be treated as such. I am afraid that the weird property tax funded way that America does public education is going to cause a massive gulf in abilities between the very wealthy and the very poor.

I also believe that universities should have no tuition. Student debt is crippling people's ability to live any sort of life. To be fair, I truly think that university should not only be tuition-free but that university students should be given "wages". I am dangerously socialist and more than a little progressive.

All I know is that I would never raise a child here. Education disparities are a problem all over but America is probably one of the worst in the developed nations.
