Never doubt the will of a morally based, principally centered American.


No, Dennis; I see that those are issues that won't be settled any time soon because of the entrenching of each side into firm stances. There is no room for compromise in the minds of those who feel those issues are the priority over everything else.

Our #1 issue in this country isn't morals. It's the economy & jobs. Let's leave those others aside until we settle the most pressing issue & the one where both sides aren't nearly as dug into their foxholes.

BTW, its not up to a government to determine morals. That's up to the individual. When a government mandates morals, that's just a step away from mandating thought--whether based in religious teaching or based in "do what feels good".



So you choose money over morals.

keep the change


"You see, being Republican isn't enough."

You mean: "...being a white, ultra-evangelical Christian isn't enough."

The number one issue in this country is our economic status. Leave the social issues aside and we may actually find answers to the economic woes. Instead, too much attention is paid to issues that will NEVER be settled (i.e. abortion).


Bobby J,

Many of us conservatives struggle with the concept of separating church and state. It is obvious, in our Constitution, that we are founded on Judeo-Christian values. Values that I would recommend to anyone. Values by which I strive to live. It is natural for me, and like-minded people to make the connection of American patriotism to our faith, due to the fact that we are founded on Judeo-Christian values.

While I recognize that we have freedom of religion, even the freedom to worship the devil, I sruggle with the fact that people, given this freedom choose to worship the devil (islam). I also struggle with the idea that such a growing number of our population choose to deny, or ignore, the Blessings that we share in America thanks to God. The present struggles of our once great nation are a direct result of our denial of God. To choose to worship the devil transcends patriotism and; therefore, becomes not only anti-Christian, but anti-American. Such are my enemies.

While I am not the Judge, but a sinner, I am American by my own definition and fully capable of voting, forming a militia, and destroying my enemy. God may choose to pull me from this fracas, but until then, I am a sinner and a patriot.


Bobby J,

Republican = American, as described by the Constitution.

The Progressive era started in 1890, never been the same since.

Sad part is, they used religiosity to create a strong central authority.

That is why I hate today Christian coalition and its political outreach. Not that I condone abortion or any other anti God behavior, but a strong central authority is a double edged sword and not part of Gods bigger plan.

Strong central authority is Gods punishment, not Gods salvation.
Moral persuasion, not moral coercion!


The start of the US Housing Bubble

1933-1939 The New Deal is a group of new laws created to fix problems in the Great Depression economy, including methods to increase home ownership.
1934 The National Housing Act of 1934, part of the New Deal, makes more affordable housing and home mortgages. It creates the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) (later United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, HUD) and the Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corporation.
1938 Fannie Mae is founded by the government under the New Deal. It is a "" stockholder-owned"" corporation that purchases and securitizes mortgages in order to ensure that funds are consistently available to the institutions that lend money to home buyers.


Obamanation is the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence. The term has its origins in the period in the United States known as the Obama Administration, lasting roughly from the 2009 thru 2012.

The term is modeled after McCarthyism of the 1940's.

Define Republican as you want it to be:



It will be the latest sobering economic milestone that few were hoping to see:

The U.S. national debt – any day now – will soar above the $15 trillion mark.

As of this writing, the total debt is $14.97 trillion, so moving beyond the symbolic $15 trillion is a foregone conclusion. When the unwelcome milestone is reached, it will come at a volatile time.

Quiz: What is the interest only portion of the debt to yearly GDP?
Hint: Are you ready to fund you own dam entitlements?
