My political registration doesn't mean a whole lot. I like to think of myself as a TPOF (Tolerant Patriot of Faith). To many, the word "tolerant" means I am a Democrat and the words "patriot" and "faith" mean I am a Republican.

To me "tolerant" means you are entitled to your beliefs and I am entitled to mine (a/k/a agree to disagree) as long as yours don't include causing me or my family bodily harm or try to impede my beliefs.

To me a "patriot" is a peace monger and not a warmonger. I believe our military and our law enforcement personnel keep us from becoming intolerant and truly draw the line at mayhem. They are a proven force from the inception of our freedom.

To me "faith" is very personal as is "goodness" and we are called to serve this world in a manner that fills us spiritually. Religion or non-religion may call us to do harm to others, but faith and/or goodness would never make such demands.

TPOF very simply defined is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Could it really be that easy?


  1. My people are Frezbaterians, we worship the Frizbee. We believe when we die our souls go up on the roof. (just kidding of course)

  2. The Golden Rule sounds easy, but sometimes it isn't....I try to remember it in everything I do.

  3. I think it would be that easy if everyone would do it, but that ain't goina happen!
