    Yet because of a 2000 year old fairy tale most of the voting public there goes to the polls and casts their votes for the party of the wealthy and corporations

    You really think its religion keeping the Sesess down?

    I don't.

    I don't think their religion has doodle-squat to do with their political POV.

    Actually if their self proclaimed religion really mattered to them in any significant way, they'd have created a completely different and a far better society.

    Oh haven't you heard

    The meek will inheirit the earth. Those who suffer the most on earth will receive the greatest reward in heaven......these folks are all dead set on being the chosen ones after they die. Which means in addition to being poverty stricken and the worse off they are ignorant. I say this from a well informed position. I'm 77 years old and I've lived in Tennessee all my life.

    It is a fascinating dilemma, dirt poor but the fantasy sustains you? Anyone see 'Game Change?' Palin wanted so badly to stir up the pot of hatred and bigotry but McCain then wouldn't have it. For many it is their foes rather than their sense that guides them. And politicians can always point back to those foes to deflect real reasons away into a place where discussion ends.

    The movie was based on the views of the director, producer, screen writer and author of the book. Why is it the left hate women that aren't submissive?

    I've already watched that flick twice and I intend to watch it again with my wife. They tied all of that story with the daily happenings on the news channels during that campaign. Somebody really put a good one together. Ed Harris, Julianne Moore and Woody Harrelson looked enough like their characters to pass for them on Main St.

    Religion is simply a tool to organize. Religious politics naturally gravitates toward the right because religion seeks to impede certain liberties and the right doesn't prioritize protecting freedoms.

    The birth of the Republican Party centered on the prosecution of The Civil War, which was an effort to preserve The Union, even at the cost of certain individual liberties.
