You know, maybe its because Im just a dumb old small town Texan, but having listened to Sarah Palin speak for a couple of years now, on everything from geopolitics, to energy independence, to eating at Dairy Queen, Ive never had a problem understanding a single word she has ever said.

“Ive never had a problem understanding a single word she has ever said”
Ask her about immigration reform. She goes all Bushy with codewords to hide her plain meaning. She makes McCain seem coherent, at least he tried to explain his position sincerely at times.
Do you have a link to one of those speeches (video or transcript)? I'm leaning fairly strongly pro-Palin because there is absolutely no doubt that she is pro-Second Amendment, pro-America, pro-life, and in a number of other ways (perhaps not all ways but in many ways) a small government conservative. I don't mind hearing the other side, but I want the details. Do you have them?
BTW, on immigration, I am strongly in favor of legal immigration and VERY strongly opposed to all illegal immigration. I want sensible immigration laws (whatever that might mean, and I'm not entirely certain myself) and I want them enforced, but I also want the best and brightest from other countries to come here, become a part of our culture, and add to our country's strength.
he has nothing
I’m sorry if this offends other Christians here (it likely will).
Jesus was asked specifically if he wanted his name on the money. The name on the coins at that time was Caesar, under the title “Son of God” (that was actually printed on the coins from that time). Right there on the money. Not even a secular name, but a false god! Jesus didn’t care!
Jesus had the opportunity to insist his name (or the Father’s) be placed on the coin, but stated that it wasn’t necessary. It is right here in the bible! (Matthew Chapter 22 for those of you who forgot)
Honestly, if your personal faith or salvation is dependent on whether or not a government agency property stamps a coin, that is sad.
Jesus didn’t want his name on the money (he had the opportunity to make that clear, and demurred). Why are we Christians so insistent on it?
If you detest government intervention as I do, why would you ever want the Lord’s name on their very currency? Christ Jesus didn’t, and I agree!!!
