There is a tendency by some people to condemn anything that they don't personally believe in. Often times people go out of their way to "mind someone else's business", forgetting that imposing their personal ideas of right and wrong on other people is not what the USA was founded on.

The people who want to eliminate nudism are usually judgmental, bigoted and angry, and frequently of a very conservative religious bent. They believe in freedom, as long as you agree with their viewpoint. Of course, they also profess that GOD is always on there side. Unless they have a direct line to GOD, I doubt that.

Nudists are usually fair-minded, friendly non-judgmental people who believe in live and let live. In all the years I have been visiting nudist events and facilities, I have found fellow nudists to be kind, considerate of others and always a positive influence. But nudist do have one fault, they often fail to watch their politicians and non-elected government employees who have a hidden agenda of eliminating your freedoms. It is important that each of us protect the freedom of the nudist viewpoints.

It is equally important that we support other groups who are also experiencing the elimination of their freedoms. I urge you to do your part and remember the horrors of the Nazi as written by Rev. Martin Niemoeller, a German Lutheran pastor. "In Germany, the Nazis first came for the communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. The they came for the trade unionist, but I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, but I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak for me." Rev. Niemoeller was arrested by the Gestapo for opposing Hitler and sent to the Dachau death camp in 1938. He was freed by Allied forces in 1945.

Please support others who are in danger of losing their rights, so there is someone to help us retain ours.

I urge you to be alert, and VOTE!
