Montalvo’s View: Why the Democrats Practice “If You Don’t Like it, Don’t Have One”

The left utilizes the argument of “if you don’t like it, don’t have one” in every case where those on the right would have a moral objection.

Don’t like Abortion? Don’t have one.

Don’t like Gay Marriage? Don’t have one.

Don’t like Drugs? Don’t use them (Okay, slightly different wording, but the same idea)

Of course, the statement implies “but don’t take away my ability to have one”.

I have to give it to the left, that the argument is quite sound.

In a constitutional republic, if your neighbor does something you don’t like, but is in no way a violation of law or your rights, then you do need to leave them be to live as they see fit, even if it bothers you.

Unfortunately, those on the left in no way practice what they preach. Especially, with what they don’t like.

This is what I think should be added to the left’s list:

Don’t like Guns? Don’t own one, but don’t take away my rights cause of your irrational fears.

Don’t like religion? Don’t be a part of one, but don’t take away my right to express mine in public.

Also, if I don’t like socialism and redistribution of wealth why am I forced to pay for it though the tax code? Is that not you forcing your morals on me?

If we’re going to leave people alone to live their lives peacefully even if we don’t approve, why don’t we make that a two way street?
