    And that's the problem. But, if there is a God, and we are to meet, I am hopefully that the line of free will, myfree will, will suffice in doubt of Him.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Forgiveness is always available to the penitent.

    Perhaps you're too young to remember what a phone booth is...it's basically a closet, room enough for one person uncomfortably. I was making a joke about sinful human nature.
