Today’s society is rife with cheating, deceit, and scandal, as well as covering up cheating, lies, and scandals. It’s no surprise that these traits are prevalent in government given the circumstances.
The government is extremely corrupt and the people are not being accurately represented. From my perspective, the government should be based off the people’s needs and wants, not what the political parties or government officials want. The current government system is a huge reason why I identify as a liberal. I feel that if there was a true democracy, where everyone had an equal say, things would be much better for minorities, women, LGBTQ+, and other groups of people who are currently disadvantaged.
Some people may disagree with me and say that the government is not entirely to blame for society’s problems and that individuals need to take responsibility for their own actions. While I agree that individuals do play a role in shaping society, I believe that the government also has a very large impact. The government creates laws and regulations that can either help or hurt different groups of people.
For example, the government could pass a law that makes it illegal to discriminate against LGBTQ+ people, which would help protect that group from discrimination. Or the government could pass a law that makes it harder for women to get abortions, which would hurt women who want or need abortions. The government has a lot of power to shape society, and I believe that they should use that power to create a society that is equal and just for all.
The government spends far more time and money pursuing and arresting individuals for white-collar crimes than it does preventing people from falling into temptation in the first place. In this regard, the government is corrupt; rather of addressing nations’ issues, it prefers to conceal them. They devote greater time and effort seeking for tax cheaters than attempting to figure out why such individuals are desperate enough to break the law in order to save money.
In my opinion, the government is too corrupt to be effective. They are more interested in looking good to the public and maintaining their power, than actually doing what is best for the people they represent. I do not trust the government to look out for my best interests, or the best interests of the country as a whole. This is why I am a liberal. I believe that it is important to have a government that is transparent and accountable to its citizens.
Liberals believe in smaller government, with less spending and fewer regulations. They believe in personal freedoms and civil liberties. Liberals also tend to be more pro-environment than other political parties. I agree with these views, and they are why I am a liberal.
Is there a lack of money? If this is the case, the government can intervene and contact the employer to verify that employees are compensated fairly. Or are these people simply puppets for their corrupt governments? The government should spend time preventing individuals from desiring to steal and cheat instead of looking for these individuals to arrest them and not resolving anything.
I was raised a liberal. My parents are diehard liberals and they instilled their beliefs in me from a young age. I grew up in a household that was politically active; we would always discuss the latest news and developments and my parents would take me to protests and rallies. I never really questioned their views or challenged them on anything; I just accepted what they said as truth. It wasn’t until I started getting more involved in politics myself that I began to develop my own opinions and views.
One of the things that I realized is that there is no one-size-fits-all answer to any political issue. Every situation is different and needs to be treated as such. For me, this is one of the key principles of liberalism: the belief that each individual is unique and deserves to be treated as such. We can’t just lump everyone into one category and expect them to all think and behave the same way.
This is why I believe that the government needs to be more focused on solving problems rather than arresting people. If we can address the root causes of crime, then we can prevent it from happening in the first place. This is a much more effective way of dealing with crime than simply arresting people after the fact.
So, these are my political views. I’m sure they’ll continue to evolve as I learn more about the world and gain more life experience. But for now, this is where I stand.
I feel that government priorities are misplaced. I am definitely not a republican when it comes to political parties. Their views are far too extreme, in my opinion, and at times downright reprehensible. Republicans, for example, think that abortion should be prohibited altogether; while I am well aware that abortion is a sensitive issue, I am nonetheless strongly pro-choice.
I think that a woman’s body is her own and she should have the final say in what happens to it, not the government. I also take liberal views on issues such as same-sex marriage and transgender rights. I believe that everyone deserves the same rights, regardless of their sexuality or gender identity.
In conclusion, my first political view would be considered quite liberal. I am still exploring my political beliefs and opinions, but so far, I lean more towards the left side of the spectrum.
