    Republicans care about one thing and only one thing - more money in their own pockets. Everything else is just lipstick on the pig.

    He was eviscerated for it. By the GOP.

    The GOP doesn't really give flying **** about personal responsibility. That's not an opinion, it's documented fact.
    He was eviscerated because he was a weak leader. Even democrats appear to have agreed, judging by the election results.

    3.)Yes I have a point. The fact is that Karl Rove, the chief campaign strategist for the 43rd President of the United States George W Bush, used gay baiting, with some success, to get votes for the Republican candidate for President of the United States.

    article 4 section 4 of the constitution states our government is .....republican.

    for something to be democratic it must be a vote of the people..

    the constitution of the founders, makes only the [house] a democratic body, the senate and electoral college are not a democratic body.
    So some undefined "higher power" must give rights, or we have none.

    America would be a better place if it had more Jimmy Carters.
    He didn't need to brag of his Naval Service, nor his high class rank.
    His work and reputation since his Presidency have been impeccable and inspiring .

    They are created by a collective body. Without a social construction, the law of the land is anything anyone wants.

    That is why natural rights are a necessary fiction, and why, despite anything to the contrary, why they should be construed as being created by nature or by a supreme being. The less awareness and control men have over their bond with one another, the better.
