    These rights aren't without limits.
    I completely agree. With rights come responsibilities. It is unfortunate that some people tend to forget about the responsibilites part of it, and only scream about their rights.

    Do you believe in life after death? I do, so I am voting for Kevorkian's ghost for president's physician. OK, call me wacko, but I don't think I am any more insane than Sarah Palin.

    What is with these childish comments?

    Why can't I just not support him because he doesn't understand Article IV Clause 3 of the Constitution? IMO I think that it is great that we don't need our candidates to take religious test to hold any office. And I would just like to point out, I liked Mitt Romney's response last night.
    What's with the stupid thread ? God forbid Herman hopes folks will be happy !!!

    Oh wait.. that's the Dem's that do that...
    It's the GOP which diesn't like to elect blacks to the federal government. Since Reconstruction, the GOP has elected only 6 black Republicans to Congress.

    Before it was, "...and happiness", it was, "...and property". Jefferson changed it in the second draft.

    Again, the Constitution guarantees our right to life, liberty and property and yes, those rights are limitless.

    From the transcript:



    CNN.com - Transcripts
    I want to be outraged, but when I listened to that part of the debate (on NPR the next day, or Minnesota Public Radio if not nationally) I didn't find it that offensive. What was funny was Newt trying to outflank Cain on the right. He just jumped in and was like "Well I demand it more than you!"

    What they both said is that they want to know that anyone in their cabinet is loyal to America first. I can't have a problem with that. However, the fact that this is seen to be an issue with only Muslims makes me think of people who were worried because Kennedy was Catholic.
