    You'll believe anything! What does 94% support of Huckabee for a Christian religion even mean?

    I heard them speak many times and establishing Christian law isn't what they want by any stretch. As I said above Christians do not even live under the law. You found an idiot to believe.

    I expect it from both I know full well it doesn't always work that way but I don't believe in different sets of rules depending on income, gender, or race.

    Since you're such a great fan of the fucking Russians, maybe you'll believe Putin's propaganda machine Russian Television:

    Over half of Republicans want to ignore Bill of Rights, make Christianity national religion
    .....When asked if they supported “establishing Christianity as the national religion,” 57 percent of the Republicans surveyed told Public Policy Polling (PPP) that they were in favor. Three in ten opposed turning the US into a theocracy, while 13 percent were unsure.

    The Bill of Rights expressly prohibits the government from promoting one religion over others: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” the Constitution’s First Amendment states.

    Women were more likely to support the official establishment of Christianity in the US, with two-thirds – 66 percent – responding “yes” to the question, while less than half the men surveyed – 49 percent – chose that option.

    “It’s convenient that Republicans are so willing to ignore the Bill of Rights when it conflicts with any aspect of Christianity, but if you even for one minute mention any form of gun control, then you’re trying to destroy the Constitution and ruin America,”Amy Eddings wrote for Ring of Fire Radio.

    Science fared even worse than the First Amendment. The poll’s finding “supports the growing perception liberals have of conservatives,” meaning Republicans are “anti-science Christian theocrats,” the New Civil Rights Movement wrote.

    Those Republican primary voters who identified as members of the Tea Party were less likely to believe in evolution – only 27 percent were fans of Charles Darwin’s theory – than the 46 percent who believe in evolution and did not identify as part of the ideological group. Overall, 37 percent of those surveyed believe in the theory, with less than half – 49 percent – disbelieving. A majority of Tea Party members – 61 percent – said they don’t accept the theory of evolution.

    When it came to global warming, only a quarter of respondents said they believe in climate change, while two-thirds – 66 percent – do not. Self-identified Tea Party members were vehemently against the scientific phenomenon, with 91 percent being so-called “climate deniers.”

    Women were more likely to believe in global warming, at 30 percent. Only 20 percent of men agreed. Meanwhile, women were less likely to believe in evolution – 30 percent, compared to 43 percent of males......

    A fan of the Russians? Are you on the rag? Go find a quote by Huckabee claiming he wants to establish a state religion. Should be all over the net. Instead you rely on smear pieces. What a loser!

    Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,


    We have enough of the world's tired and poor..

    Many of those who came "yearning to breathe free" helped elect the sorts of sociopaths that made europe the shit hole it is.

    Kinda like when Commiefornians flee the insane democrook policies and move to TX, then vote for more democrooks.

    Furthermore the illegals do not value freedom or capitalism, they exploit these things while undermining them.

    So the rest of the world can keep their
    wretched refuse of their teeming shores, Spare us these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, I lift my shotgun and deny them passage.

    Which reminds me of some humor dating back to the 80s or 90s. I forget who first said it, but it's funny because it's true:

    Democrats believe nothing is genetic except homosexuality and Republicans believe everything is genetic except homosexuality.

    You have me confused with gun lovers. 10USC311 is a federal law of the land.

    all talk and no action?

    when is the national socialist right wing, going to drug test CEOs and deny them steak and lobster privileges for not having a Jobs Boom that causes wages to outpace inflation, for their capital gains preference.

    Do Only the Poor, have to Work for it?
