    The current political mantra seems to be the cry for “Change.” But what does this mean? Change to what? We voters need to be sure we know what is being promised before we step through the looking glass as Alice did.

    Investor’s Business Daily asks “Is it a change from victory in Iraq to defeat, from low taxes to high and from prosperity to dependency?” Conservative Republicans like Romney, Thompson and Guiliani suggest “change” is getting rid of the Washington insiders who have been running the nation for years with much talk and little change. Yet, in New Hampshire, the voters selected McCain and Clinton, hardly any change there from the past. Sounds like our news anchors and newspaper reporters should be asking more questions instead of just reporting what the politicians say as the reporters dutifully record it or write it down! We voters need to insist on clear definitions of words before we capitulate to one side or the other.

    Then there is the capitulation to “Political Correctness” where the Far Left preaches to us to never judge, always be tolerant (tolerant of what, they never say) and help them separate church and state as if this is a mandate from our Constitution. They even try to tie it in by reminding us this came from Thomas Jefferson, the main writer of “The Declaration of Independence” and one who had a strong influence on our Constitution.

    But Jefferson never told us to include in any official document that we should separate church and state! The real story, as Paul Harvey likes to say, is that the Danbury Baptists were fearful that this new President was going to make them change their method of worship, which was controversial in his day, and so they wrote him asking him to address this. President Jefferson immediately wrote back to assure them. In that letter, he wrote,

    “I contemplate with sovereign reverence the act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.”

    How our Supreme Court legislated otherwise is reason enough for us to demand a President who will appoint and insist that all new Justices abide by the original Constitution and not try to either legislate or infer from unofficial documents or from European Constitutions that our beloved document of freedom has any different meaning!

    Newt Gingrich said in his new DVD about his tour of Washington, D.C. , “There is no attack on American Culture more destructive or more dishonest than the relentless effort to drive God out of our public square!”

    Past Democrat Presidents may have agreed with Gingrich. It was Harry S. Truman who said, “We believe that all men are created equal because they are created in the image of God.”

    And it was President Franklin D. Roosevelt who claimed, “Rules are not necessarily sacred, but principles are!”

    My favorite quote, though, comes from President Ronald Reagan who said, “ If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under!”

    The coming 2008 election is the most important one we will ever face as we will be making the decision as to what kind of country we intend to leave for our children or grandchildren to inherit. Will it be a Godless, Socialist democracy with high taxes causing fewer jobs while those who do work will have to not only support their own families but also take care of those who refuse to work or are not legal citizens? Or will we leave them the great Republic Americans have been building since 1776 with freedom for all to pursue happiness as promised by our Constitution. Our nation is now teetering on a political cusp ready to slide down to the left or the right. Your 2008 votes will decide the future fate of this country and what those ready to inherit this nation will have to live with. Once the votes are counted, there will be no turning back. 2009 will start eight years of the following:

    1. To maintain a nation under God or to continue to completely separate church and state, thus to maintain faith or move to being a secularist nation;

    2. To stay as a Republic or be converted to a European-type Democracy;

    3. To keep Capitalism or accept Socialism;

    4. Keep lower taxes with more jobs or higher taxes with fewer jobs available as a result.;

    5. To have a Constructional or a Legislative Supreme Court;

    6. To continue our current emotional and political “Cultural War” or to, once again, unite as the true United States of America!


    How you vote in 2008 will answer which of the above our next generation will inherit!

    you've had your two presidential terms. Stop getting tears on the carpet just because this nation is tired of your 04 policy maker.

    You tired of it? Me too. However, Bush is only a taste of what liberalism could really bring if the Dimwits win.

    Look SE, you're party screwed up. They backed mr. bush who has been a terrible president. History proves that CHANGE is the only thing that's certain. Those who resist change are left behind. Prove to me that history tells us otherwise, or shut the hell up with you're sob story and childish whining about an election your party can no longer compete in.

    Yes, the Pubs did screw up...and they are paying for it today with the Party being in disarray.

    Yes, CHANGE is always certain. That's why I think Obama's platform for CHANGE is bogus....anybody can claim that platform. He's an empty promise. "CHANGE" by itself does not mean a thing. Change can be good or bad.

    Tell me exactly how Obama's or Hillary's CHANGE are going to be good for America?

    Change from corruption like Bush and the Republicans who lost in the last election.

    Are we winning in Iraq? Who finally stated what the definition of victory in Iraq is? The Middle class still pays taxes so only the rich will be paying "high" taxes. Define prosperity...is it a recession or inflation?

    What is wrong with be tolerant of other races, religions, political ideologies? Are the bullies of the world upset and demand to have their bigotry back? What a stupid argument.

    You cannot have it both ways. If you want the state to not be involved with how you worship, you also cannot have the state involved with whether or not you worship. Freedom of religion is also freedom from religion. And this means that if I am secular or Buddhist or Jewish and the schools are saying a Christian prayer...this violates my Constitutional rights.

    There is nothing with saying Merry Christmas if you are a private citizen or a private business, but government agencies cannot say Merry Christmas unless they are prepared to also say Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy EIN, etc.


    Why, so Christians can infuse their ideologies into law and government agencies like education?

    Right, how can you attack non-Christians if you cannot pick them out of the crowd, like those who do not pray in school, or in court. Never mind that there are people who do not have the same beliefs as Christians, their feelings do not matter apparently. This is about domination and that is what Christianity has always been about.

    Right, so better pray before the Evangelical Taliban starts patrolling the streets.

    What a bunch of bullshit. All of these evils that you denounce are brought to you by capitalism and the free market. Where have you been?

    ScreamingEagle, you seem to have a very low opinion of America if you think an election can "destroy America."

    You mean like the slumlord corruption that Obama is associated with?

    According to the Patreus guidelines we are winning.
    "Gouge the Rich!" is the liberal mantra...send the investors fleeing to other countries! That's really going to help America (sarcasm)
    If you don't know then you shouldn't care.

    "Toleration" is a liberal word. I don't have to be "tolerant" of any race or religion. I just can't legally discriminate against them in certain public situations. And where does it say I must be "tolerant" of all political ideologies?

    Whether I worship or how I worship are two different things entirely. Just because the government cannot tell me how to worship in the public square does not mean the government can tell me I can't worship in the public square.

    Who told you freedom of religion is freedom from religion? Are you going to tell that soapbox preacher he can't preach in the park just because you can hear him?

    If you're a secular slob then it is your perfect right to leave the room if those Christian crazies are praying. Government people can say Merry Christmas because Christmas is a national holiday set by the government...as opposed to the fake Kwanzaa holiday.

    No, so secular slobs don't legislate from the bench and infuse their ideologies into law and government agencies like education.

    Our country was founded with a belief in a Higher Power from which come our rights. Think about it…and try not to let your animosity and hatred get in the way. Some taoist.

    Oh, you mean like the "Evangelical Taliban" who were legally protesting a fag parade and who got thrown in the slammer by the Fag Taliban for exercising their right to free speech in the public square?

    Higher taxes are the result of a free market? Control of your health care by the government is the result of a free market? Who's the one really full of bullshit here? Wanna try again?

    So give me some facts to counter my rhetoric.

    My opinion is getting lower when I look at the Democrats today. One must be ever-vigilant...our freedom can be taken from us if we are not.
