Yes, but we aren't selling snake oil..
There are exactly zero mental aerobatics involved with our product. And it alreadly dominates all other forms of medium. They are profiting from this century old concept, like they invented it themselves.
It's easy to grasp.. It's honest. anyone can understand it.
But, you can't lie and sell it.
All it requires is honesty and a medium.
Look at the success others have marketing this "worn out" product.
Yup--people of prinicple are the ones holding back a conservative revolution. What a contradictory crock of chicken spit!
Instant gratification ( call it the Dr. Spock PRINCIPLE " , and THAT has ruined several generations ! ) is bad for babies, children , and political causes.
How bout I demolish your "one issue" (how about the Second Amendment?) and then call you names nopardons?
Everyone has something that drives them to the polls, and it's based on the party platform.. you go to vote what you believe.
If you are abandoned there, then why go back?
Even better, why listen to some hack who tells you that your beliefs aren't worth voting for in the first place?
I dunno about you, but if the things I believe in aren't worthy of discussion, then I won't bother voting.
Your argument is a shell of "well, you won't do things my way with YOUR vote, so I am angry, grrrr."
The GOP is selling a product. Will you pay for it?
Political parties don't "deserve" votes any more than buisnesses do. They market a product and try to earn your vote.
You sound like the kind of person who would open a buisness and then chase people down the street cursing at them if they refused to purchase your inferior product.
Not a good buisness model, imVho.
Hell, just beat that dollar out of them.. That's got to be good for buisness, right?
Mr. President. If you sign a bill, granting illegal aliens amnesty, I cannot vote for you ever again. My support for the GOP in general is even in doubt.
You know, the democrats are handing out anything and everything in the hopes of purchasing my vote, but I vote on principle and thus far I have ignored them. Doing the right thing was motivation enough to vote Republican.
So you can understand how dissapointed I am to find out that the "party of principle" has comprimised itself for it's own self interest. I AM SUPPOSED to remain balanced on principle, while the party sells itself out..? It's an insult.
It's an insult to my intelligence.
People talk about "Political Capital" and how that you have enough to simply steamroll the wishes of average Americans because of the War Effort.
And my answer to that argument is: "What's capital investment without sales?"
I am one less "sale" you will have in 2004 if you grant law breakers status President Bush.
I am forced to observe every, stupid law ever written.. right down to the last letter, but yet an entire class of criminal get's a pass? Like I said before, it's an insult to me.. A slap in my face. Just how stupid do these people think I am anyway?
Please tell me that you have more respect for than this.
Regards and best wishes, Jhoffa_X

We must recognize that we're losing the war in politics because we are losing the culture war. Although I believe it's a two-flank battle--keeping an eye on government (the unique responsibility of a free people) and fighting threats to the culture, I believe that the latter is the primary flank. Yet it's the aspect of the battle that gets the least attention because it's much easier to deal with political issues than it is to tackle moral and spiritual ones.
In short, if we don't do something to change the spiritual state of this nation, our troubles will only get worse. The solution to our governmental problems is an indirect one. One that emphasizes a change in the hearts of Americans, one by one, who in turn will impact this nation for the better.
That's the first flank, and certainly no waste of effort. But what about the second, more long term?
Jim, I have been an unhappy Republican for 40 years watching them get in step with the Democrats. I am fed up with their definitions of right and wrong. When are we going to follow the Constitution again? I will vote 3rd Party until I see definite changes in the House and Senate. They're lying to us Americans about everything that they do. I have never heard a Republican Senator admit that they are following Agenda 21 page by page, nor have I heard any of them ask for our help in stopping the NWO that was designed in the United Nations 60 years ago.
I must thank you for bringing all of these political crimes to the forefront on your website for America to see and discuss.
