    They seem to believe -- or at least dare not say that they DON'T believe -- in a new Ten Commandments. Ironically, there is plenty of "Big Government" on their stone tablets, at least in the form of proposed new constitutional amendments that would override the freedom of the states to set their own rules on social behavior. "States rights" is no longer necessarily a high priority in every or even most respects.

    Instead, the contenders are adhering to the following guidelines:

    •Thou Shalt Not Raise ANY Taxes
    •Thou Shalt Pass a Constitutional Amendment to Make Abortion Illegal
    •Thou Shalt Pass a Constitutional Amendment to Define Marriage as the Union of a Man and a Woman
    •Thou Shalt Repeal "ObamaCare," AKA the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
    •Thou Shalt Repeal The Dodd-Frank Banking Regulation Act
    •Thou Shalt Pass a Constitutional Amendment to Balance the Federal Budget
    •Thou Shalt Only Give Military Support to "Our Friends"
    •Thou Shalt Limit the Power of -- If Not Entirely Abolish -- the EPA
    •Thou Shalt Drill, Mine and Frak to the Widest Extent Possible
    •Thou Shalt Take the Name of President Obama in Vain

    Apparently some of you think you're much smarter than the S&P and many other analysts and economists.

    Rich people aren't "making jobs". They are "hoarding money" and I heard that from a Republican. Oops.

    Republicans only care about children BEFORE they are born.

    Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer declared the Republicans position, "Feed the poor and they'll BREED". That includes children, obviously.

    You forgot one:

    Thou shalt eliminate the separation of church and state.
