    52ndStreet says: "America must move to eventually ban Homosexuality.
    Otherwise the social fabric of America will eventually be destroyed."

    Which begs the question:

    What do YOU think is most destructive to the social fabric of America?

    Sad that anyone would pick *that* as the issue which would destroy the "social fabric" of America. Destruction of the middle class... .now THAT would destroy the social fabric of America.

    I'm guessing he wouldn't think that's much of a problem.

    You don't have the "erosion of the traditional family unit and values." So I didn't vote. The poll is slanted.

    I voted for the shrinking dollar because sad as it may be, most unhappiness comes from the stress of not being able to care for your loved ones.

    You're so wrong. Unhappiness comes from not knowing how to care for your loved ones because you've never had a role model to teach you things like morality, frugality, the value of hard work, and sobriety.

    Poor people who have good values and a strong family are not unhappy. It's not about the money, dear.

    well, you can choose multiple answers, so maybe you can select what you think contributes the most to the erosion traditional family values.

    what is it that you think erodes what is valuable to YOUR family?

    Uh huh. Tell that to someone living in a trailer that can't feed their kids.

    You can have good values if you are rich or poor. But the inability to care for those you love can eat away at anyone.

    And why is that person living and a trailer and can't feed their kids? I work with these people. They're there because of bad choices made by them and their significant other. You don't see people with good values living in trailers trying to feed their kids who are miserable. It doesn't happen. They work, they go to church, they help their kids with school work, and though they might be poor, they're happy. Because if you make good choices you CAN care for those you love.

    It's not about the money. It never has been.

    No money, no food. No food, no security. If you can't supply the basic things to survive, everything else becomes meaningless. All the other things on the list are afterthoughts in the greater scheme of things.

    Even Jesus understood that.
