    Since both parties have proven time and again they have no respect for themselves, each other, or the American people, what else would you expect? To argue which party is more vulgar is a mute point. They both are equally in the gutter.

    It means that I think you're trying to paint people who follow the Biblical mandates of personal responsibility, free markets & investing, small government, punishment for crime, voluntary charitable giving, modesty in dress, respect for life, and the folks who feel that studying the Bible has convinced them to be anti-abortion, anti-welfare, anti-gay rights, and anti-gun laws as idiots.

    In short, people who trust God more than their own eyes & ears. Kinda like Bill Maher tries to.

    And I thought it was conservative anti-intellectualism. Now it's republican ?

    Several things strike me about this:
    The first gut reaction is "This might be expected on the late night comedy shows, but it is sick, coming out of a camp of a Republican Women's Group. Don't they know how sterotypical and flamming this would seem to most people of color?"

    The second gut feeling..... was the same as when I first heard Obama's statement ..... which the article also included...... and that was the gut feeling he was introducing race..... not merely face into the campaign in a cleverly subtle way. After all, the logic follows, if he "doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills." then neither does any other current candidate as most of the 'faces' on our coinage/paper bills are those of founding fathers and all are deceased: Therefore, he was drawing a directly subtle attention to race. Obviously, if he is campaigning on his racial difference, (though he IS half white), then he has created the unequal ground on which few others can follow. What a hypocrit!

    However cleverly Obama disquised and introduced racial overtones: This latter depiction by a local womens Republican club is in the poorest taste and dispicable!
    It combines a series of sterotypical beliefs regarding a race with the food preferences, economics, and the politics often attributed to a race as though these are exceptional characteristics.

    Interesting, you found these in the Bible?

    Not that it's a problem since I believe the Bible is a living book that speaks individually to the heart of the believer. There are some messages in the book that was not intended for me just as I am sure it has given me messages that was not meant for you... :thumbs:

    Politics or Religion. These are both the same thing to these people.

    What we don't do is live dual hypocritical lives. A secular one and a Christian one. We do not remove Christ from any of our decisions. We look to scripture even for political decisions. Unlike some others

    Republican leaders are losing the diversity war


    What little inroads that Republican leadership has made in the way of diversity, they just take two steps back with this, even minorities within the Republican group were appalled and hurt by this, they may just up an bolt, which means othes are thinking the same thing.

    With Latinos and Blacks now even more powerful in elections this hurts the Republicans.

    I look forward to a President Obama following the lead of President Reagan in showing kindness and consideration to those who work hard here.

    bro. curtis' O/P dissected by LP...
    free markets & investing,

    I reference the parable of the talents for this one. Jesus seems to support trying to make a little money into a lot of it. He seems to be calling the guy who played it safe some pretty mean words.

    small government,

    I reference the original 12 judges of Israel, and God's reluctance to have people ruled, even when they beg for it. 1st Samuel 8.

    anti-welfare

    2 Thessalonians 3

    anti-gun laws

    God commands good stewardship of his gifts. Good stewards would protect them. That's what our fore fathers believed. Seems like every city that has banned handguns is a haven for gangbangers, and citizens are given second priority. Is that how it was in O/T Israel ? Did the rule of law break down because criminals were given more rights than victims ?

    The words 'Republican intellectualism' is an oxymoron. :laugh:
