I agree with most of you pronouncements. Yet, number 14 bothers me. As a poll worker I find your number 14 untenable.
If I want to write in a candidate not on the ballet ... nary a polling machine will let you do that.
“3)There is no such thing as a conflict between Christianity and science...”
I know, and agree. It can be frustrating to explain, but science is only discovering the existing physical laws that God created along with the Universe. Science isn’t about truth, only proofs about how the physical world operates. That isn’t evil - it is the people utilyzing science for their own selfish ends who are evil.
From a news article here in California.
Stewart is fighting multiple felonies filed against him for the production and distribution of farm fresh raw milk, or milk that is sold unpasteurized.
Is this the felon you want to punish.
Many of these are simplistic and need to be better thought out.
That's hard core leftist totalitarianism. Get grounded before you declare your manifesto.
Your #2 is too categorical for me. If you have a disability that leaves you dependent, there’s no reason to be ashamed.
I think your “manifesto” is complete garbage!!!! Will I get a trial in your Right Wing Christian Social Democracy or will I be summarily executed????? Really man, this is way over the top, I think you need to go back to the drawing board here. This is America (barely) but this religious fanaticism won’t sell. Why does every so called “conservative” in the US have to always revert to the Christian card. Come on man, really religion is a personal issue, as christian I do not have believe in what you say.....sorry. Because even though I am a christian, I am a American first and I have a right to tell you to take a hike, on gay marriage, abortion, capital punishment, prayer in school etc...... The US is a Republic not a Democracy, and as such I do not have to listen to all your self rightous rantings. This is what the average American wants from the Government:
LEAVE US THE H*LL ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Sciences are a study of God’s creation (Ps. 19:1; Romans 1:20)
“7) On average, government workers should make less than people who do the same jobs in private industry.”
The merit system is key here! Pay the good ones but fire the slackers.
Government workers should not have a “right” to protect “their turf” through collective extortion upon the taxpayer. It’s the taxpayers turf!
If they earn higher pay, they deserve it but, guaranteed job stability and enhanced benefits is the real problem.
The biggest threat to America is our government K-12 schooling. If children attend tuition-free, socialist-entitlement, godless, and compulsory schools they risk learning to be comfortable with:
— Getting other free stuff from their neighbor besides “free” school
— Government compulsion
— They **will** learn to think and reason godlessly. They must just to cooperate in the classroom. How could it be otherwise?
—Since all schools trash First Amendment Rights, those attending government schools learn to be comfortable with the government trashing those God-given rights.
I have a problem with this statement.
“5) It’s unlikely to ever happen, but we’d be much better off in this country if the voting age were 25 and only people who paid income tax could vote. “
They LOWERED the voting age to 18 in 1972, from 21. Today, in Obama’s world, at 25, you could still be living under mama’s wing, insurance, etc. I’ve seen more useful idiots with college degrees at 25, than most folks have seen in their lifetime! (I worked at your local state ‘get-=a-job’ office for three years, until I retired.)
21) Hillary Clinton, instead of being in prison for the numerous felonies she committed (accessory to murder, theft, perjury, suborning perjury, theft of over 900 FBI files, etc.), will be on the ticket in November.
#20 is a no go for me. A right is a right and the 2nd amendment says shall not be infringed. So unless the government is going to incarcerate forever and ensure their safety at 100% then they cannot take away the 2nd Amendment and a persons right and ability to protect him or herself.
Put into play and accepted, many of these precepts would shred our Constitution and those God-given rights, liberties and freedoms therein, we Cons so respect, cherish and sacrifice to protect at all costs.
1) Any illegal alien caught in this country should be forever barred from legally visiting this country, working here, or becoming an American citizen.
Agreed. We should have a database of DNA and fingerprints on everyone caught entering the US illegally or already here, and they should all be permanently barred from any path to citizenship.
2) If you take welfare or food stamps or if your kids have to get free meals at school, you should be ashamed. Your kids should feel ashamed by your failure, too.
Again, I agree. There are times to accept charity, but it should be taken with a humble heart, and people should be so embarrassed to take charity that they will do anything legal to avoid that situation as soon as it is avoidable.
3) There is no such thing as a conflict between Christianity and science . . .
Science is an explanation of natural events. God is by definition supernatural and outside the scope of science.
4) . . . I’d also like to see the death penalty expanded to cover rape and child molestation as well.
The Supremes blew this one a few years ago when they ruled that a pervert who raped children could not be executed for his crime simply because he didn’t kill anyone. [Kennedy v. Louisiana - in which Kennedy raped his 8 y/o stepdaughter, severely injuring her so that she required surgery, but the little girl lived.]
9) Ninety nine times out of a hundred when someone cries racism, it’s either a lame excuse or a political tactic.
Trayvon Martin, Tawana Brawley, Crystal Mangum, and many others come to mind.
10) If you’re a Christian, then your faith requires you to oppose gay marriage.
I defer to God on this question. Personally, I find homosexual acts gross but not much different from some heterosexual couples where I can’t imagine what either one sees in the other. God provided better guidance than my instincts: homosexual acts are unnatural and are unacceptable to Him.
15) People who think black Americans are too stupid and incompetent to handle getting a voter ID are just as racist as the KKK, although they show it differently.
Liberals are by far the most racist people in America. They believe blacks could not compete on a level playing field. When they call us racist, it’s because we believe blacks are perfectly capable of being the best possible person for a job based on ability and the content of their character, without giving them extra credit for the color of their skin.
19) You can no more change your sex than you can change from a human being into a Water Buffalo. Believing otherwise is a mental disorder that should be handled by a psychologist, not catered to with surgery.
I’ve never understood how a surgeon could agree to mutilate a person’s healthy body in response to mental illness. Doctors should be ashamed of such conduct.
We can thank Fat Teddy (now sober two years and 10 months) for his 1965 immigration “reform” which allows other country’s dregs into the U.S.
The death penalty should be on the table for any crime which the victim would have been justified in resisting with deadly force.
In such cases, it is the criminal himself who has subordinated the value of his life to the fruits of the crime. Here in Louisiana, we did, until relatively recently, have the death penalty for the aggravated rape of a minor, and we had the only person on death row in the entire nation for a crime other than capital murder. SCOTUS shot it down.
My only issue is #4 - the unintended consequence of executing criminals is that they will be willing to kill more to cover up their crimes. Maybe if we added “death by immuration (live burial)” for individuals who kill to cover up their crimes?
