If that is true, then what are we all fighting to save? What's the point? If the only way to get elected any more is to pander to the basest instincts of the morally degenerate and historically ignorant, then aren't we merely rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic?
The vector for those types of people is relentlessly downward. If pandering to them were to work it would simply mean further decay as a nation. But it won't work because they will never accept ANYONE from the Right. Do I really need to remind you about how that McCain candidacy turned out? Do you honestly think "Mr. Electability", Mitt Romney, will fare any better? The so-called "electable" (i.e. liberal) Republican candidates always fail because liberal voters would prefer real leftism (ala Obama) to an imitation from the Right, and conservative voters lose enthusiasm as they are presented with yet another "least bad option."
The founders of this once-great nation knew something that we today seem to have forgotten. While they had built a system of self-government that was without precedent, they realized that unless the nation were populated by a "moral and religious people", to quote John Adams, it would fail. Now, we "enlightened" people of the 21st Century can pretend all we want that faith in God has no place in a Presidential campaign, or at best should be mentioned sparingly and very non-specifically, but we would be fools to think so.
Rick Santorum is right on target. I think he may be the only candidate that truly understands what lies at the core of our troubles. Debt? Massive spending? Incipient socialism? Those are merely symptoms. The disease we suffer from is our lack of focus on and dependence on God. Until and unless the people return to reliance on God, this nation will not recover.
If we instead take the pragmatic path of appealing to the degenerate among us, we will only accelerate and cement our demise.
Ever since sludge put up that Newt hit piece, i’ve been drudge free. Never looked back.
I can tell from your profile you’re not a person of faith.
Collectively, the founding fathers religious views were defined very broadly. Some were, in fact, deists or even atheists and many were more conventional believers as well but they were able to come together to lay out the plan for this great country.
Now we have so-called conservatives hearkening back to the founding fathers and quibbling about religious trivia. The founding fathers, I believe, would be laughing in your faces.
Where in the founding documents and discourse do we find this sort of useless banter? Perhaps it exists, but it appears to me that these wise men knew that they had bigger fish to fry.
I’m a member of a mainline Protestant church and I don’t disagree with anything he’s said.
By your narrow criteria, I am sure that is true!
There’s prudence, and there’s fear. I think you’re too fearful.
Preach the truth loudly and forcefully. You’ll antagonism your enemies, galvanize your supporters, and win over the ignorant.
It’s a winning strategy.
God knows the milquetoast approach hasn’t worked.
Name one founding father that was an atheist. Franklin and Jefferson were about the only deists.
I don’t believe in a literal Satan or a literal hell; and if my president does, I’d prefer he keep it to himself.
I decided earlier today to give Drudge another chance, saw that and skated away. Dirt bag he surely is.
This statement typifies the problem that we are facing. The narrowness of your view defines the majority of the public as "godless degenerates" and yet you can't win an election without them. I personally don't define everyone who is not a white fundamentalist Christian as lost and degenerate and I would want them and expect them to vote for a cause that supports life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness rather than insulting them with irrelevant narrow sectarian quibbling.
“white fundamentalist Christian”
Why the race card?
Or in the case of Algore, black preacher mode.
I was going to define the milieu that I am addressing as "Fundamentalist Christian" and then I realized that there are mainly nonwhite fundamentalist Christians who are ardent Obama supporters and I must acknowledge some whites as well.
I do realize how that statement looks, but it was not intended in that way.
My point is that there are many Conservatives who have tried to define the movement so narrowly that it has no hope of ever achieving its ends.
Nontheless, I apologize for any misunderstanding. One is always stepping into perilous terrain with these types of distinctions.
HUH, I believe the enemy is the MSM, the left wing loons and the obama admin.
If you want to think Satan then all the best but saying saying what you think is not going to get many more votes than off some very very religious folk.
I’;m looking at an election not a religious war and going around around saying this stuff is only going to make the MSM, etc make one look like a nut case
That is what I am on about, know your enemy and how they work and when you do you can win.
Protestant churches also love a rock band in the back of the church; Obama needs a rock band; with a drum set.
