One of the ironical aspects of the colonists tearing down the statue of George III and using it to make bullets to fight the British is that the statue was erected in 1766 by the colonists to thank the British for repealing the Stamp Act of 1765.

Maybe not meaningless for you but not good for children who need both the male and female influence for their proper development.

Are you talking about the "SS" word-the Slippery slope concept and changing definition of marriage? Firstly, this opens society to accept polyamory, polygamy and other concepts because America believes in total "equality". But it also demeans the main purpose of marriage-to have and raise children. It has been shown by many professionals that being raised by 2 people of the same sex is not good for the development of the child-children need both male and female input for proper development. Unfortunately, many children are raised by single parents due to divorce etc. but the optimum development for the child is being raised by a man and a woman.

The Electoral College, Under Attack

The electoral college is not only undemocratic but also fits in with the desires of the Founding Fathers- let the wealthy and well-connected leaders decide on who would be President and NOT the People. The Founding Fathers were afraid of the people "The people is a great beast"-Hamilton-and also of democracy. Four times in our history the candidate with the least votes became President. Is this democratic? No! Are the wishes of the people being followed? No! The electoral college IGNORES the voice of the people. We should do away with the electoral college and follow the voice of the people. The issue should not be about "clout" but rather democracy. And I say this as a person who will vote for Romney.

The Truth About Mormonism

DNA does not just disprove a"previously common Mormon belief." DNA disproves the very basis of the Book of Mormon and the Mormon faith. The Book of Mormon says that Jews came to the New World in 586 BC-broke into two groups that fought against each other and the evil group was victorious. These Jewish survivors became the Native Americans. So, according to the Book of Mormon, Indians are descendants of Jewish settlers. However, extensive studies has proved conclusively that Native Americans have NO Jewish DNA (some of these studies are by Mormon scientists). If Indians have no Jewish DNA then the Book of Mormon is based on total inaccuracies and if the Book of Mormon is totally incorrect, then the Mormon faith is completely false.
I agree that Mormonism has some strange anomalies. These include the Mark of Cain which said Blacks were inferior and not allowed equality in the Mormon church until 1978 and the DNA evidence that Indians have NO Jewish blood which invalidates the very basis of the Book of Mormon (with many suggestions that it is not a Christian faith). Having said this, however, Mormons are extremely pro-America and pro-family, much more patriotic and positive than Obama and Romney would be a hundred times better as President than BOH in EVERY area.
