    The moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the GOP is coming to light. Whoever they elect will have no credibility as the party can't decide which discredited ideological talking point to obsess on (abortion, Islam, austerity, Obama's birth certificate), but whatever it is, most Americans find it absurd and irrelevant.

    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    And while hypocritically living their lives contrary to the purported values they impose on others. Witness the much divorced Gingrich and his affairs with Congressional interns while moralizing about Clinton and how liberalism is destroying family values.

    ....unless you have some money or run a business, or are in law enforcement, or are a person of faith in which case the liberals will tell you how to live your lives.

    ...yeah, like the Dems never do that.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    In their private lives, no, they don't. And that's how it should be.

    Maybe you're confusing private lives (like who you sleep with and what women do with their bodies) with things like dumping pollution in kids' drinking water -- a common conservative confusion.

    Well where do we begin! Social Conservative want to tell people how to live their lives, who they can marry, what they can do with their bodies, when a person can die, they tend to be very small minded and generally want to solve social problems with violence.

    Now before you say I am wrong realize everything I wrote can be backed up and cited by the Republican party platform that was written this year and several laws they have treid to pass in the last couple of years. The problem I have with social conservative is they mix religion in with their politics. Which is very dangerous, just take a look at Iran and most Middle Eastern countries.

If the GOP nominates him, that frankly proves they don't give a **** about anyone but the 1%. Cantor is the poster child of bending over and grabbing your ankles for the rich.
