My name is Erika. I love to eat good food whether it is good for me or not. I love beer and wine, I love a good run. I believe in breast-feeding, I believe in having an epidural when you are about to go into labor. I do not like guns, I accept that military and police should be allowed to carry them. I love the Constitution and what it means. I believe in the separation between church and state, I am Catholic and am liberal.
I love my kids and am grateful that I have the choice to stay home with them. I also believe you CAN have it all! I am pro-choice and believe the government has no right to tell me what to do with MY body. I also believe that if you cannot take care of a child, let a loving and stable family adopt them. I am the daughter of an illegal immigrant and believe that you should come to the States, legally. Immigration laws need to be fixed. I believe in taxing people who make more than my spouse. I believe that teachers, nurses, police officers, military and firemen should be making FAR money, they deserve a pay raise. I HATE THE KARDASHIANS!
I believe in loving your true self (even though I have a hard time doing that myself.) If you were born in the wrong body, become the person you truly are. I believe that anyone ANYONE who abuses a child in anyway, shape or form should be locked away and taught a very very good lesson. I believe that if you are going to run for office, you must give up 50% of you paycheck!
I believe in Equality, I believe in acceptance. I believe in Love. We are all entitled to our opinions, that is what makes the USA such a great place. It is why my husband puts on his uniform everyday, he wanted to serve his country!
We were formed because people wanted the freedom to believe in something and not have people tell them they were wrong. We as human beings need to accept that we are not all perfect! I don’t condemn, there are greater evils out there than same sex marriage. There are children in foster care, soldiers still going to war, human trafficking, racism. I am raising my sons to love and accept others who look or are different than them. Why call ourselves Americans if we are not going to accept everyone’s right to marry? There was a time where I would not have been allowed to marry my husband. Who are we to judge? God is about loving each other, the bible is written by some many people with so many beliefs. We can’t live by that alone, well except the part about treating others as you wish to be treated.
Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
We are all one!
