Funny that its never bad enough for republicans to want to do anything about it. They have all the time in the world to nominate RINO's that will do nothing but make our situation worse because the only alternative they can come up with is letting the Dems get elected. Even on the brink of economic collapse they have all the time in the world to elect lesser evils one after the next. I thought for the last 10 years that things were so bad (debt) it was time to take drastic action and elect a candidate that could help, but there seems to be no rush.

I think they are two vastly different things. Smoking could be construed to be "cool". I don't think killing people appeals to anyone who is in their right mind. I kill as many video game enemies as I can. Always have. I couldn't count the killings I've seen on screen - but those are generally not glorified in the movies. They are done either be the villain, who gets taken out, or in wartime situations. Lumping all behaviors in the same categories skews any real analysis.

I believe John McCain is the "maverick" you are looking for.

I am firmly in your camp. I have discovered that the purpose of voting is to vote for what I want. I want a constitutionally limited government that will defend our unalienable rights and defend OUR country. I will be voting for a christian if at all possible.
John, you take a suprisingly elementary level approach to the comparison. Darwin wrote a book based on observations for which he extrapolated beyond what he witnessed. Finches with thicker beaks? Now we know that it is a common occurrence based on rainfall. Same with eggshell thickness. Hold on to Darwin if you wish, but it is extrapolation without obesrvation to back it up. Its a fairy tale. Worse than any conspiracy theory.
Not all religions lead to freedom. It's incredibly short-sighted and against all known evidence that Christianity is anti-progress. It's sad what little is being taught our youngsters these days.
Nicely said.
No, I don't think "today's" libertarian would say we were unfree then. The reason is because the libertarians are where the disenfranchised conservatives end up, affecting the libertarian party boundaries. Libertarians are not for the abolition of all government, rather they are simply for the government Jefferson and Washington made for us. Life is to be protected. A main function of any government charged with the care of its citizens. Sodomy, government makes no difference.
Ain't that the truth.
If you disbelieve in the Creation account of the Bible, I can understand your view. I find it irrational, but you don't seem to be hurting anyone here. I do worry about your influence on your loved ones though. If God is real and you are convincing others he is not, you are playing a role in their damnation. Something to think about.
