An alternative to Democrats' moral bankruptcy

I think any discussion about who has the moral high ground is a slippery slope. And it only detracts from the message that we, as a country, are going broke. I wish Republicans would move on. Religion used to be a private matter and parading it around like it makes you better than the other side is a real turn off to many moderates and independents. On a side note, I'd really like to know how it got omitted and if any deems are furious over the fake "ays have it" when it was not clear at all.

Discussion of a morality is not a slippery slope, it is the essence of our problem, and needs to be discussed. You can take religion out of the discussion, but not morality. Moral relativism is what makes people believe that they have the right to do whatever they want without consequence. God gives us free will, but we have to live with the consequences of your choices. In the same way, our founding fathers, through the constitution gave us liberty, but it only works if we are made accountable, and have to live with the consequences of our choices. The majority of our debt problems come from entitlements, where true charity, love and caring for our fellow man has been replaced by redistributive theft.

You didn't red the article, did you, girl? Try again, then get back to us. You are the problem.

You look at "religious" people, what they believe, how they live their lives, and then you look at the likes of OWS and you immediately think of insanity and Hell. But religion is the problem. Huh? What?

Yeah, that "religion" saved me and countless others from a life of destruction, but who cares about that? Viva Marx, right?

Maybe Democrats have some slick salesmen, like Bill Clinton and our current president, who can sell you swampland and have you convinced that you've bought choice beachfront property.

But the omission of any mention of God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital from the Democratic Party platform, which were in it in 2008, and then the almost-failed attempt to add them after the fact, showed the clear truth about the 2012 Democratic Party.

It took three boisterous floor votes to add these principles to the platform. Listening to the ayes and nays on the third vote, it is questionable...
