How about defending rights for his species?

We hear a lot about rights. Nowadays, everybody wants their rights. They want our government to pass laws to protect and defend their “rights.”

Minorities want their rights. If they don’t get their rights, they’ll call you a bigot.

Gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgenders all want their rights. Anyone who doesn’t grant their rights is labeled a homophobe. Illegal immigrants and foreigners all want their rights. If they don’t get the rights they think they’re entitled to, you get labeled a xenophobe.

I’m just wondering if there’s a politician out there who will work as hard to protect my rights; my rights as a white middle-aged, English-speaking, Bible-believing Christian, heterosexual male.

Maybe I shouldn’t be so naive as to expect too much from our local-yokel elected representatives.Maybe I would have to consider packing up and moving to the Bible belt or to the Republic of Texas. Then maybe I could meet people of my species who are actually concerned for the future of this country and for preserving and defending our American heritage.
