The GOP should pander to the “makers” not the “takers.” And they should definitely consider crony-capitalists “takers.”

So, the best leaders for “true” Americans are those rare individuals who promise Liberty - not freebies or material equality. Unfortunately, that seems to appeal to only about 2% of the voting public.

Whether one believes Jesus of Nazareth was a teacher, a philosopher, or God, his message was one of love, kindness, freedom and personal responsibility – the ultimate prescription for human salvation. Which is, in a word, “Christianity” – not to be confused with “religion.” Unfortunately, the “freedom and personal responsibility” part seems as difficult for mankind to handle today as it was in Jesus’ day.

Unfortunately, politicians and media are influenced more by those “loud and troublesome, insects of the hour” than by logic, reason, or common sense. That’s exactly why we must elect statesmen instead of politicians.
Is it being too judgmental to say "Kill the Infidels” is not as moral as “Love Thy Neighbor" ?
Ms Coulter must think all libertarians live in a Battleground State. When one lives in a Blue State like California, a libertarian would be an “idiot” to waste his/her vote on an unelectable Republican whose platform is only slightly less Big-Government than the Democrat favorite when one’s vote can, at least, make a statement for a Small-Government candidate. Yes, Coulter is right: both Libertarians and libertarians would be wise to vote for the lesser of two evils in the close races.
The media keep busting the chops of a “do nothing Congress” for passing too few bills. A better approach might be to judge Congress by the number of laws it rescinds rather than the number it passes. I’d like ro see the day when politicians run on the promise of cleaning up an existing mess rather than creating another government program.

It’s not about weak or strong, it’s about right or wrong. And a brainwashed constituency doesn’t make it right or wrong. Just give is the facts, please – a rarity in politics and mass media these days.

Is this supposed to be something new? It sounds like Josh McDowell covered this subject 40 years ago with his two volume work, Evidence that Demands a Verdict. . . . Not that I mind. Some things can’t be repeated too often.
