    If you put your ear to the ground, you can hear the rumble. It is the rumble of political discontent, obsolete bipolarities, and looming realignment. What am I talking about? I’m talking about the coming split of the Republican Party. Years ago, Jeff Foxworthy blessed America with his “…you might be a redneck” jokes. Drawing upon his comedic methodology: If you fear the one true God, define America as a “Christian Nation”, seek to make God’s Law the law of the land, think of homosexuals as freaks and sinners, and want to jail women who have abortions…you might be a...

    US President George W. Bush is mistaken to believe the Christian Right - which strongly supports Israel - is in his pocket for the 2004 election, Gary Bauer, a leading voice for this constituency, said Thursday. Bauer, on a four-day visit to Israel, admitted that this constituency - which he said makes up the bulk of the Republican Party - is not going to leave the Bush camp and vote instead for one of the Democratic contenders. However, if it appears that the Bush Administration is "browbeating" Israel into making concessions to terrorists, Bauer said a large number of these...

    WASHINGTON -- With such fellow believers as President Bush and Attorney General John Ashcroft in office, religious conservatives have never had more friends in high places. But a growing sense of frustration is enveloping the leadership of the political movement that began nearly 25 years ago when the Rev. Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority burst onto the national scene. A generation later, most Americans don't stand with the Christian Right. Its big agenda items have fizzled. And as the impact of last month's sweeping Supreme Court ruling on gay rights sinks in, the movement is at a soul-searching crossroads. "Obviously, in...

    President Bush has been having more than his share of troubles lately. The economy is not quite where it should be, with unemployment offices reporting that jobless claims are at a 20-year high. Criticism of his administration's intelligence handling prior to going to war with Iraq, and even the veracity of its WMD claims, is mounting. The public is growing understandably anxious about the rising number of American casualties in Iraq, where our postwar occupation policies at times seem aimless and uncertain.All of this is well known and frequently commented upon. One group where the president is thought to enjoy...
