Are you willing to raise your taxes to provide Healthcare for all Americans? I am a compassionate and empathetic person. Recently I have been sick. But I have healthcare. Without it, I would surely die. I am willing to raise my taxes—not for more national defense, though we need it, not for more military corporate welfare, or wars that turn out to be based on lies, public relations and propaganda— but for healthcare for all Americans, and anyone in this great country. Healthy is a human right, and the primary foundation upon which people can pursue their happiness as the great Jefferson so eloquently put it in the Declaration of Independence. Without health, twe have no life, there can be no liberty and there can be no happiness.
I am willing to increase my taxes for a child suffering from cancer, or a mother or father suffering from a debilitating disease. This is the “pro-life” position. This is the “Christian” position. This is the atheist whatever group you identify with— but it is the compassionate position.
How can people call themselves pro-life but want people to die from disease, and sickness if they can’t afford health insurance? Denying people healthcare, creating a profit driven system that does nothing to prevent the dieses and health problems that plague Americans is northern pro-life not compassionate. Rather, it is cold blooded, greedy and hateful. #healthcareisahumanright#humanrights#prolife#universalhealthcare#medicareforall#berniesanders#organize#educateagitateorganize#unionize#laborunion
So I got really sick... had surgeries, and ongoing treatment. So I’m on a vegan diet, both by conviction (I was a meat eating hypocrite who believed in animal rights), and now by medical recommendation. I’ve lost over 40 pounds. Since I can’t exercise, or run until my doctors say it’s okay— I’m looking at you vegan lifestyle. I can finally say I’m vegan (going strong or two months), and enjoying it. I can’t wait till December when I can start exercising. #veganfatloss#vegandiet#vegansuccess#vegan#animalrights#nolongerahypocrite#healthy#weightloss#diet
Perseverance, dedication and discipline. I keep going. I’ve seen organizers who are great, quit because they didn’t get a promotion. I’ve seen people give up on their dreams of being a “revolutionary” and go and do the safe thing. I say to those people, dream. Fight for your dreams. There will be people who tell you that you don’t fit, you can’t do it, and initially you may simply be horrible at that job. Keep fighting. Keep moving big steps forward. It may be slow, but brick by brick, you build the strongest impenetrable castles. Build your castle. So what if the person next to you already built it and your in your 5th brick. The turtle always defeats the rabbit. By the turtle never gives up. The rabbit, takes breaks because they are ahead.... until you overtake them. #discipline#loveyourjob#loveyourpassion#motivation#beyourmotivation#betheturtle#perserverance#dedication#motivationalquotes
