It Was Probably Never About Bergdahl

Congratulatoins Linbaugh: you are the first I have seen who admits that this deal was terrible regardless of the character of Bergdahl. And it has to be true that this is one more dangerous mistake based on the false notion that we can negotiate with terrorists. I wonder if the press will do their best to hide the next American killings at the hands of those 5 or other associated terrorists.

The 7 Reasons America Became A Great Power

Until conservatives understand that our founding ethics was not based on religion, we will never be able to get back what drove us to exceptionalism. Our founding ethical system was based on rational self-interest; the belief that man is an end in himself and has the inalienable rights – needed for his individual survival – to act in his own best interest without the use of force against others. This is in contrast to the altruistic morality of religion that calls for self-sacrifice. Without the former, we never could have become the economic powerhouse that we did.
Clearly not (see my post above)
...just as conservatives must choose between freedom and the radical right. Both ends of the spectrum have forgotten what made this country great! We must have true separation of State and church just as much as separation of State and economics; we must have our freedom back and government to only protect our rights.
Not a moral issue, yet an ethical one? Really?
It's hard to accept such a thesis when terms such as "biblical truth" and "purge the Christians" are used. The bible does not represent truth at all. And "purge" is far too strong a term, even for liberals.

Of all the faults of the baby boom generation, self-esteem is certainly not one of them; shame on you for even suggesting that the latter is a vice. It is our collectivist culture, preaching altruism in every form, that is the cause of our moral collapse.

From the beginning, our Pres. was clearly a statist and a Marcist. His policies are all about control and equality. The people did not want to see it then; they had better now.

But it is never in one's rational self-interest to be immoral and/or to infringe on the rights of others. Such politicians are rot and their actions need to be more exposed.
