Code of Ethics
I, Kylem Nichols, believe:
- All people have the right to bear arms. This is the second amendment and I fully support it. People have the right to protect themselves and if they choose to do so with guns, then so be it.
- I believe homosexuals should have the same marriage rights as heterosexuals. Love is love no matter what gender you are, and what gender you love. God has taught me to not discriminate against anyone, and I will continue to do so.
- I believe women should have equal rights as men. Women are people too and there is nothing out there that proves that women can’t work just as hard, or be just as good as men.
- I believe everybody deserves respect until proven unworthy of it. At first, nobody does anything to not deserve respect. When they do something, then thats a different story. But everybody deserves a chance to prove themselves before judgment of people.
- I believe women have the right to make their own decisions about their bodies. No matter what woman want to do with their bodies, it isn’t up to anybody else. Men are allowed to do what they want, so why not woman? We can make our own decisions.
- I believe in the death penalty. A life for a life only seems fair to me. Except in the case of self-defense, the death penalty only sounds reasonable.
- I believe you deserve to be treated the way you treat others. If you don’t give somebody respect or are mean to them, why do you deserve to be treated with respect? You don’t. What goes around comes around.
- I believe there should be more security in schools. There have been way too many school shootings in our nation and I believe that if there was more security, then that wouldn't be an issue.
- I believe in hunting, but only for need and not for sport. Before there was mass produced food, hunting was the only way to feed our families. So its a natural way to get food. But only if you need food. I do not support hunting for the trophies or bragging rights. If you do that, you are depriving others of necessities.
- I believe in war for the protection of our country. Even if we as a nation believe in nonviolence, that doesn't mean that other countries do. We need a way to defend ourselves.
- I believe that the legal driving age should be older. Even though I am a teenager, and I love driving and the freedom it brings, I think that 16 is too young. At age 18, you are more mature, more cable of making mature decisions and are technically an adult. This would be a more reasonable driving age.
