    I tell my priest that daily.

    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.

    However, the question really invites the candidate to pretend. If one think s he has to be religious to get elected, he will present himself as religious. This strikes me as wrong. It isn't a question we should be asking. We have no single religious belief in this country. Just MHO.

    Actually, according to a lot of democrats and liberals that post on this site, at least they self identify accordingly.

    And it still wouldnt matter to me if they prayed to yahweh, JoJo the Rabbit, or believed in the second coming of Hale Bop or had no spiritual beliefs at all provided they were honest honorable people with a fiscally conservative and limited government mindset (limited to the roles ascribed by the constitution) Id vote for them.

    I think they are. It's a lot more accepted to be a pro-gay marriage politician in the democratic party than it is in the republican party. The democratic party is much more into secularism and much less religious than the republican party.

    I've talked to several liberal ladies such as yourself and they were leary about voting for a Mormom or evangelical Christian. So, don't use your broad brush on your side there, lib.

    As a fomer Baptist, I understand. But really, if he's a satanist, there's likley something else we can hold against him, like all those blood sacrifies. PETA wouldn't go for that.

    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.
