I Never Cared by Rip McIntosh

I never cared…
I never cared if you were “gay” or whatever acronym you chose to call yourself, until you started shoving it down my throat.
I never cared what color you were, if you were a good human, until you started blaming me for your problems.
I never cared about your political affiliation until you started to condemn me for mine.
I never cared where you were from in this great Republic until you began condemning people based on where they were born and the history that makes them who they are.
I have never cared if you were well off or poor because I’ve been both. Until you started calling me names for working hard and bettering myself.
I’ve never cared if your beliefs are different than mine. Until you said my beliefs are wrong.
I’ve never cared if you don’t like guns until you tried to take my guns away.
Now, I care!
I’ve given all the tolerance I have to give.
This is no longer my problem.
It’s your problem.
You can still fix it.
It’s not too late.
But it will be.
I’m a very patient person at times. But I’m out of patience. There are literally Millions of people just like me that are sick of your Anti-American crap!
We have had enough! America is the greatest country on earth, and if you don’t like America then you should leave. We are done caring about your misguided feelings.
You don’t have the right to enjoy American freedoms if you are trying to take that right way from other Americans.

“Told from Scott’s point-of-view, this book grabs the reader right away. The beginning scene shows some of the difficulties Scott faces being deaf. Scott uses sign language and lip-reading, and I liked the way descriptions of both were worked into the text. This adds a unique element to the story. This book has a lot going on and is hard to put down.”
