True or False: President Romney would have been better for the country than President Obama.
Gotta vote for Republicans this fall to demote Harry Reid. Its just that simple.
Neither being in the majority or the minority on an issue automatically make you right. Now extend that... The will of the people may be to ban or allow gay marriage - but being the will of the people doesn't make it the right or proper thing to do. So, we see that to answer questions like these we need an objective standard. The Bible provides that standard for those of us who believe, but the Constitution limits how far we can take Biblical doctrine and make it law.
Phoney argument? I actually made no argument. I just raised a question. As was pointed out, neither being in the majority or the minority on an issue automatically make you right. Now extend that... The will of the people may be to ban or allow gay marriage - but being the will of the people doesn't make it the right or proper thing to do. So the answer to Vince's question is that he might, but not necessarily. We see that to answer questions like these we need an objective standard. The Bible provides that standard for those of us who believe, but the Constitution limits how far we can take Biblical doctrine and make it law.

Anyone who thinks a Senate filled with Democrats will elect a Ted Cruz for majority leader or will pass conservative legislation is certainly a low information voter.

If you do not support the GOP then you are supporting the Democrats. You can't not support the GOP and not help the Democrats. That's just the way it is.
So the proper expression of conservative values is to elect the candidate most least likely to hold those values? That doesn't sound very conservative to me - just silly.
Interesting point. Its worth noting that thousands of Chinese girls (and boys) have been adopted by US families because of the One Child Policy in China. I wonder if the reasoning is that the aid to help them reverse that policy in the near term is less than paying the entitlements those children will be paid by the government in the longer term.
