About Life: There's no such thing as a fair and easy life, tragic but true. All you can do is be a good person, do the right thing, try your hardest, never give up, hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.
About Patriotism: Just because you vote, just because you have a flag on your truck, car, go kart, whatever, just because you posses political paraphernalia, just because you go to political rallies, just because you are politically active doesn't mean your patriotic, it doesn't mean your a good person, it doesn't mean your a good citizen. Having just behavior and always doing what's appropriate is what makes you a good person, a good citizen, and a patriot.
All drugs should be illegal, except for the drugs your doctor's justly prescribe to you, and no drugs should ever be misused, abused.
Appearances: People tend to focus on the outer appearances but it's the inner self that really matters. What you see on the outside doesn't always match what's on the inside. You might be something very special on the inside but people are so fixated and judgmental about what they see on the outside that they don't give you a fair chance and that's an injustice, a tragedy.
Capital Punishment: Capital punishment has no role in a perfect world. But since the world we live in is far from perfect I say reserve it only for the offenders who justly deserve it. We as humanity need to strive for and accomplish a just and peaceful world so that way we can abolish capital punishment.
Censorship and government: A good government always tells the truth. A good government censors out unjust material. A good government always does what's just. A good government is required to always give it's citizens an appropriate amount of freedom.

God: God devised the world, God knew the sum total of how the world was going to be, God does minimal to nothing to stop the malice, injustices, and cruelty. God rejects justice meaning he doesn't appropriately penalize those who deserve to be punished and he doesn't protect those who deserve to be protected. When I look at these harsh realities, my rational thinking activates, and makes me believe that God is pure evil.
Government: A good government shouldn't control its citizens, but it should intervene when it's citizens are making harmful decisions. And when the government is making harmful decisions it's citizens should intervene. There needs to be some sort of safeguard that keeps these two from harming one another.

If somebody, if something needs help, if somebody, if something deserves help, if you are able to help, if it's appropriate that you help, then you are required to help them an appropriate amount.

Just because somebody is ahead of you doesn't mean their better then you. Just because somebody's more developed then you doesn't mean their more talented then you.
Marriage: What is marriage? Marriage is just a bond between two people. The task you perform when your married are the same task you perform when your not married, so is there really any reason to get married, no. Its just something people do for attention and entertainment. People are too unstable and unpredictable, you never know if they really love you. I don't think marriage is safe, I don't think its worth the risk. You never know how its going to end, in success or tragedy. You could become a victim of violence, you could end up in the courtroom for years arguing over who gets custody of the children, how much your going to pay in child support and who gets what possessions. It's stressful and a waste of your life. You don't need a marriage certificate, a wedding dress, a fancy, expensive ring, a big ceremony, or a honeymoon to show your loyalty, respect, and love to someone. Qualities like loyalty, respect, and love come from always doing what's just not from getting married and having children.

Martial arts can make a person a better person.
Mistakes and Decisions: A person should never make a mistake, a bad decision, but if they do they should admit to it and except responsibility for the appropriate penalties, if its appropriate there are any penalties at all.
Roles: Roles have the power to influence in both positive and negative ways so it is important to always be just in everything you do.
Sports: Sports condition the mind, body, and spirit. They can make you smarter, healthier, stronger, tougher, more confident, and more talented. They can be very fun, and they can sometimes relieve stress. They can make your life a better place. Football is great for cardio and losing weight, plus it can be very fun if you know what your doing. Bodybuilding is great for strength and overall health.

And you'll never know complete physical freedom until you know all the patterns and movements of karate.

Statute of limitations: Once a crime happens its apart of history forever, it will never go away. Maybe memories fade, maybe witnesses die, maybe evidence gets lost, destroyed, tampered with, or expires but the crimes themselves never actually expire. Therefore they require justice. The only time there should ever be a limitation on charging a crime is if there's not enough truth, facts, and evidence to support it. You don't ever want to convict innocent people of crimes they never committed, you don't ever want to unjustly penalize people. As long as there's enough truth, facts and evidence to support the crime then just penalties should be administered to the appropriate people no matter if its been a 100 plus years since the crime took place. If there's no justice for the crime in life then justice is required for the crime in the afterlife. Either way it go's justice is required for the crime.
The smallest weakest organism is precious and deserves respect and love until justice says otherwise.
What does Earth mean to you? What does Life mean to you? It's the introduction to Hell in my opinion.
When God gives you so much potential but won't let you reach it, when you wanna move forward but the world won't let you, it's like swaying a bone in front of a dog, you know he wants it but you don't give it to him, you would rather tease him with it instead, it's just god's way, the world's way of being cruel to you and keeping you down.
While true friends are possible, they are improbable, like the lottery. Bad friends on the other hand are much more common, like traffic lights.
You don't want to be equal to your enemies, you don't want to be less then your enemies, you want to be enough times greater to conquer the sum total of your enemies.
