    I find this thinking to be despicable !
    Some of us don't buy into that "Great Society" nonsense, earthworm. At least not in the way that it was proposed and implemented here in the United States during the Great Depression. It's not about taking Opportunities away from people. It's simply about ensuring that people are forced to endure the consequences of their poor decisions in life.

    Aren't things such as Gay Rights reserved powers in the United States? It wouldn't be up to the president...

    Gay marriage is such a non-issue. It amazes me how many worry less about a mediocre paycheck-to-paycheck existence and the potential of living in squalor and more about a topic that concerns a VERY select few people.

    Schadenfraude, thy name is politics.

    Better to live a subsistance life in a Moral third-world nation than to live a life of splendor in an Immoral first-world nation, Gipper.

    Ironic that you post this while living in the United States.

    Only because my search for that Moralistic, Second or Third-World nation has not yet yielded sufficient results to allow me to relocate, Gipper. Nor have I been able to lay my hands upon a time machine in order to send myself back to the 12th or 13th Century where I would prefer to be.

    I could suggest gaining morbid obesity to get on disability, and find a basement somewhere to live in while playing Dungeons and Dragons for most of every waking day. Escapists tend to do such things as this.

    Which way will you vote? Economic justice or social justice?
    first comes the understanding of social justice ,then economic justice follows it...

    I won't vote for anyone who campaigns for "justice". I'll vote for someone who will work to fix the economy first and foremost, we need to have economic sanity restored to America. Gay marriage is pretty much a foregone conclusion anyhow.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    There are plenty of places on earth that resemble the 12th or 13th century. Bring a sword, you'll be needing it.
