You have hit one of the big problems IE prayer rugs and time out for public praying done towards Mecca. Personally I am not offended by this expression of faith but many in this country are so why does the military allow Muslims to perform their public prayers if they are going to discipline Christians for sharing their faith.
It is a crime what your friend is going through and a shame he can't get better legal representation.

Businesses are doing savings due to not knowing what the regulations and fees will be for the ObamaCare as they make up the rules as they go. Liberals and Obama have no concept of what economics are or how the systems work.

You are right about that except for the things he says to the groups he speaks to that support him IE Planned Parenthood which should be called Planned Child Deaths and some Women.

As long as republicans can't explain why this is [dems impoverishing minorities, etc] those voters will keep voting in people promising them lies. I have taught and coached football [I took inner city kids that "would never be disciplined enough to win a title" and went to state twice winning once all in 5 years] so I know when it is explained to them they get it, my students and players did any way. In my economics class we talked about different systems and my students saw and believed that capitalism is best becauce they believe in being rewarded for their effort like the rest of us do. If we don't explain it then the dems promise of help sounds good to them.

We don't need a division but we do need conservatives like Reagan that can explain how conservative policies enhance the lives of average Americans. We have had too many that aren't conservatives or consevatives that con't articulate why they believe in conservative ideals. There are just a few that can explain how the capitalist system works and how consumers not gov't provides the protection that we want from products. Gov't only needs to deal with markets with monopolies or oligopolies. Just saying capitalsim is the best system or that conservative ideas are best isn't enough.
Look at his other positions and tell me that one issue makes him not a conservative. I hope he sees the shortcoming of this immigration plan but we need to understand 12 - 20 million won't be rounded up and shipped home. What we can do is create a worker program that doesn't offer entitlement benefits or voting rights as only citizens should have those. This destruction of politicians because we disagree with them on one issue has to stop if we want to regain the Presidency and bring about control of the federal gov't.
You are going to never find a politician that agrees with everything you believe in and it is voters like you that have given us a 2nd term of Obama. Too many sat out the election because Romney wasn't enough like them. He wasn't like my idea of a great President either but I couldn't condemn our country to another Obama term. Many conservatives need to look deep and see if they care for themselves over country or if they love their country more. Remember we don't get everything at once but we have to make the first step.

Keep going as you are a prime example of how liberals have too high a opinion of themselves. Empathy can make you relate to people in bad situations but it does nothing to improve their condition in life. If you truly knew Christianity you would know it teaches us to empathic but also to lead people to improve their lives. More people in this world have died as a result of liberal thought which led to communist regimes and more than 120 million deaths from their gov'ts that supposedly cared so much for the people.
con't remake this country into one that has limited freedoms and limits people ability to succeed.
