    I read the whole thing. You must be very, very easily frightened. Perhaps you should stay away from the news? If that was enough to make you very frightened I can't imagine how you react when you read about what Muslim extremists actually do vs. the mild things that an average Christian woman has said

    Just like Huckabee, isn't she. I am terribly afraid of the fundamentalist.
    I wouldn't worry so much about Palin's statement that America should dedicate itself to God; I worry when politicians act as if they have a direct insight into God's will and will act on that. Palin will speak to her base in this manner as faith is a part of life for many Americans. I haven't seen anything in her short record as a governor that indicated that she was attempting to establish a theocracy.

    Re: Sarah Palin says US should rededicate itself to God

    You know what kills me about these people that try to shove religion down your throat? You know, we need to be a moral country with religious values blah blah blah? They're usually hypocrites. Problem is they can't seem to show me an example I want to follow. I had a guy tell me I need to live a more Christian life. Say what? He's been married four times!

    And I'll be damned if I'm going to have some dumb broad (Palin) tell me about being religious when when she had to get married and I didn't. ( Oh yes her first child was born much less than 9 months after she got married.) You do the math. And her religious values were passed on so well her daughter did the exact same thing.

    And don't tell me having a child with Downs Syndrome was a gift from God when in reality she was too dumb to prevent pregnancy after the age of 45, when the chances of having a child with this syndrome goes remarkably up. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against these kids but in an low income family who ends up taking care of them once the parents pass on? You guessed it. The state. How republican.

    There's Newt Gingerich that touted the new moral majority that cheated on his wife. There's the politician that was caught on microphone bragging about his mistress that got all those awards for family values. There's the senator caught in the bathroom making sexual advances that bashed gays.

    It's goes on and on. Hypocrites.

    Two things I've learned in the short 52 years I've been on earth:

    1.) If it sounds too good to be true it probably is

    And

    2.) If someone wears their religion on their sleeve their usually a hypocrite.

    There have always been hypocrites. One of my favorite examples is jesus writing in the sand as he challanged the crowd, "Let he who is without sin throw the first stone." I don't have to wonder too long just What he was writing that made the crowd turn away.

    That being said, I would prefer that a politician not speak so much of their faith that it obstructs my observation of whether or not they are living it.

    I will never understand the absolute hysteria that Palin provokes. Seems to me that we have worse people in public life who draw far less attention.

    No that would be Hitler. Washington was a deist, just like Jefferson. Jefferson publicly denied the Virgin Birth and wrote his own "Bible" with all references to Christ's divinity edited out - the fundies of Jefferson's day even used propaganda to spread fear that Jefferson would "take their Bibles away" (much like they still do 200 years later).

    As for Palin, she could start by apologizing for endorsing 'death panels' as govt of Alaska, then flip-flopping after Obama was elected (I doubt that Jeebus would approve of her pulling the plug our our grannies).

    She never endorsed death panels nor changed her attitude about the healthcare decision awareness day. Her endorsing the awareness day was the complete opposite of having government beauracrats deciding end of life measures for private citizens.

    You continue to propagate this lie despite having run from defending it every time you are confronted on it.

    This is the 1st time that you actually explained "why" you think it's a lie. But actually her "Healthcare decisions day" speech was about "making end of life decisions for elderly people who may not be able to make such decisions themselves". How's that any different than Obama's legislation?

    Uh no, brainchild...

    WHEREAS, Healthcare Decisions Day is designed to raise public awareness of the need to plan ahead for healthcare decisions, related to end of life care and medical decision-making whenever patients are unable to speak for themselves and to encourage the specific use of advance directives to communicate these important healthcare decisions. WHEREAS, in Alaska, Alaska Statute 13.52 provides the specifics of the advance directives law and offers a model form for patient use.
    It clearly is a statement encouraging individuals to plan advanced directives for themselves in the event that they cannot speak for themselves.
