No, you’re pretty mean. Admit it.
But I forgive you.
Beat Willard and Obama!
Want to ask Jim if I’m mean and if you’re acting like a troll?
Your tagline says you think Santorum and Huckabee would be an ideal ticket, which indicates you're perfectly comfortable with "conservative" being defined big government used to enforce "Christian" morality. Smoking is frowned upon by many Christians, and if you recall, Huckabee said he would have been fine with a national ban on smoking. That, my FRiend, is the antithesis of limited government and liberty.
Christian morality and values, along with Christian charities, will THRIVE BEST in a limited government environment. Social conservatives must get off their high, self-righteous horses and humble themselves to the idea that other than their own individual charity and behavior, they have zero place overseeing, let alone using GOVERNMENT to oversee, "proper" Christian behavior.
If government was limited, we'd have no Roe v. Wade and abortion would probably be illegal in most, if not all states. If government was limited, Christian charities would be taking care of the poor and teaching them a work ethic, instead of government dole creating entitlement-arrogant slaves. If government was limited, free people would be able to peacefully, civilly discriminate against OPEN homosexuality in their workplaces, businesses, lives, communities, schools, military, and anywhere else they wanted to reject it.
Being against abortion and open homosexuality doesn't make you a conservative -- it makes you against abortion and the gay agenda. Being against those two things AND RECOGNIZING that limited govenrment the way our Founders intended is the best way to ensure a moral society, is being a conservative.
These true conservatives RESPECT the rights of others to make mistakes and do wrong to learn the path of righteousness. We each have our own path to God, and busy-bodies often serve as obstacles in that path. Busy-bodies as private entities are one thing; busy-bodies elected to political power, no matter WHICH political party they belong to, are LETHAL TO FREEDOM. Please wake up to this truth.
Social conservatives are every bit as emotion-driven as liberals, and the results are just as damaging.
