Ahem, laws ARE at least rooted in the moral tenants of Christianity, "Thou shalt not kill" etc...however, to attach a label to repubs without knowing for a certainty like you did here with me, ie: "Evangelical" is a huge mistake liberals often make, and get awfully upset when any sort of label is attached to them. I wonder if it is some sort of block they have going on to see that they themselves do it, or what?
It is based on limited government. Fore if you don't have that first, you don't have the individual freedoms, or rights other than what Uncle Sugar tells you that you can have.The government isn't based on morals, it's based on freedom and individual rights laid out in the Constitution
I know most Muslims voted repub when Bush was running, but after the smear on Muslims and Barack Hussein Obama, and now all this Mosque bs (which btw they constitutionally have the right to build).. you can bet on losing their votes in the future
That is a pure dodge. You know most Muslims? man, your rolodex must be chock full. As for the Mosque, "BS" as you put it, in not being contested that they have the "right" to build it for the umpteenth time. But rather whether they should.
I don't think anything is going to change... I think both parties are going to engage in their typical bs... blame the other party. Both parities will continue to run up the debt and ignore the constitution, whilst accusing the other of trampling it... deficits will continue to rise. Ron Paul will never be elected, because neo cons are still in the republican party and you guys are blatantly blind to it. No offense, but most of TP'ers probably voted for Bush two times in a row, and said "he kept us safe" and probably thought the constitutional ban he promised for gay marriage sounded great at the time.
I see, so repubs are really just a bunch of war mongering, homophobes, and racists right? Man, when will you liberals learn that people arguing under the banner of the TP are fed up with BOTH "parties"? That although they may see repubs as a lesser of two evils as it were, that if that repub doesn't espouse constitutional values of less government, and less taxation, that they will be fought within the repub party.
TPers are not against a strong defense, or any of the enumerated powers laid out within the Constitution, but are tired of politicians treating the Constitution as if it were some quaint notion, laid out by men that had no idea of the future, and therefore think that they don't have to follow it properly.
I can only hope that you and other liberals continue to think that way.The fact is dems don't think they are destroying anything. You do, but they don't.. and they think repubs are destroying everything. Everybody is going to vote the same.
The liberal 'war on poverty' is a huge failure, and has only served to foster generational dependency. And a guaranteed voting class for the demo's that keep promising more, but once in delivering little. Minority, and welfare (zero liability) voters have been duped by the libs for decades.Yes a lot of people are dependent on the government, but the republicans aren't doing anything legit about it- when they are just shouting that people on unemployment are lazy.. They really aren't lazy the economy is ****. Or when the Republicans think people on welfare and food stamps have the skills to ****ing actually get a job that will support their families when they are kicked off. They don't have skills, so they will come back for welfare as soon as they can.
Are you actually arguing for a stronger Central Government? It hasn't worked, why would we continue to do that which has failed so miserably?Local communities need to be restructured and the importance we place on federal government needs to be revised before anything really changes.. or nobody is going to be happy.
Again with the labels eh? So I guess I can take from this that you are saying that those who want a smaller government footprint in our lives, and lower taxes should just shut up and sit down eh? But I know, you're not a liberal right?And you Evangelicals need to learn how to stop running other people's lives through the federal government.. worry about your own community. You're a MAJOR part of the problem.
Really now? Hummmmm."In our view we would rather have
someone who owes some back taxes but is not trying to hide them than someone who is trying to sell out the Tea Party,"
Russell said, referring to Castle.
Are there no decent candidates anywhere?Public records show O'Donnell has no steady income, no savings, no investments and owns no property. She rents a room out of her campaign office, which is a town home in a residential community. Last year, she reported making $5,800 in income divided between two sources.
Her alma mater, Fairleigh Dickinson University, sued her in 1994 for about $4,000 in unpaid tuition. She satisfied the debt in 2003 and received her diploma this month after completing an additional course
O'Donnell said it's not uncommon for students to take years to pay back their debts.
Wait a minute.... which is it? First you admit that Scott Brown is pro-choice, then you seem to claim that the Republican party isn't open to people that don't agree with the entire party platform.Of course, but the party doesn't seem to be very open to other religions and non religious people... A lot of people who aren't Evangelic don't like hearing the likes of Bush and Palin go on and on, how it's more their country than anybody else's... and other people in the party saying, the laws should be based on OUR religious tenants and morals
Seems you disproved your own misguided theory.
Another letter from the Federal Election Commission dated March 12, 2009 which stated: "It has come to the attention of the Commission that your Treasurer for Friends of Christine O'Donnell has resigned and the Commission has received no information regarding a new treasurer. A treasurer must be appointed within 10 days of the resignation of the previous treasurer (11CFR& 102.2(a)(2)." Another identical letter to this one was mailed on September 9, 2009. So much for requirements concerning Campaign Receipts and Disbursements and Treasurer replacements in the O'Donnell campaign. It appears that this all could still be pending?
In examining an earlier report covering the period of 1/1/09 to 3/31/09 it appears that debts and obligations owed by the committee totaled $24,298.64. During that period Ms. O'Donnell received contributions totaling $7,215. What is remarkable throughout the report is the consistent pattern of reimbursement to herself for meals, gasoline purchases, small amounts here and there, as if she might be living off of the campaign contributions. Cell phone reimbursements, an unusual $475.20 reimbursement for mileage and an expense reimbursement to a Brent Vosher (a former boyfriend) in the amount of $750 who owns the house where she was living--a house she once owned. Could that be a rent check? Another expenditure is a payment to Delmarva Power for her electric bill in the amount of $600. Another mileage reimbursement in the amount of $60. Then a $200 check to herself simply labeled-- fundraising expense?
To add to her potential woes, Christine O'Donnell has an apparent problem with the Delaware Republican Committee brought about by its October 9th Vicmead event which is the Delaware GOP's annual primary fundraiser. The Delaware Republican leadership throughout the state is in an uproar over this one. This is the story as presented to me from those in charge: " After ordering two tickets at $175 a piece for the Vicmead event, apparently the credit card number Ms. O'Donnell gave to the Committee was declined for the purchase. According to my reliable sources, "she was told she could settle the account at the door. However , instead of doing exactly that, Ms. O'Donnell and friend somehow avoided the main entrance and entered from another area-- they ate the food, net-worked the event and then left. She was e-mailed and messages left on her phone by the Delaware GOP and asked to pay the amount due ($350)"--all this information came directly from GOP headquarters. "It is now late January, 2010- well over four months after the event and the Delaware Republican Committee has still not been paid"--said Chairman Tom Ross.
Based on all of this--Christine O'Donnell--- the bastion of moral integrity and honesty, has indeed been questioned. Is the Vicmead fiasco, that's got all the Delaware GOP insiders upset and rolling their eyes, merely a miscomunication and an unfortunate oversight ? Are the documented campaign finance irregularities significant or no big deal?
Delaware Way: Jud Bennett Writes ~ Who is Christine O'Donnell????
So you would extend the same to Tim Geithner?
WE are in the mess we are in financially because mindless morons play this game of partisan ideology. Meanwhile, the crippled and dependent pets froth at the mouth because the potential is slightly greater now that congress will have a better chance at continuing to tax, spend, and toss them a few crumbs, and amazingly...that appeases them.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
