A belief in a "God" does not equate to religious bigotry....an intolerance toward those who hold different opinions. Those are religious "nuts".

Who are these evangelical Christians to which you keep referring?
It's because of the amoral social policies perpetrated by the left that a former democratic black preacher started a movement to encourage more blacks to switch parties just as he had done.
No one is dictating anything - except Obama and the Democratic Party with Obamacare. And they are losing that battle too.
Be strong and don't give in to unnecessary and phantom concerns. Not now.
The left finally has more to answer for than the right. Let's keep it that way. We both win if they lose.
Let's talk about your favorite issue, abortion.

Most people think it is reasonable to place some time limit on abortion.

Reasonable people think that legislation requiring women to view an ultrasound prior to an abortion is just vindictive and punitive.

Almost nobody except Akin and radical Christians believe that "real rape" will not result in a pregnancy.

Well, now you know how it feels.

I don't know of one conservative who is trying to change the law to make abortion on demand legal in all phases of pregnancy including born alive babies. There are quite a few on your side.

That doesn't mean all liberals think alike on this issue.

Lumping people together who happen to share the same same political ideology but don't always share the same beliefs on social issues is not fair or necessary. Right?

Your being a naiveté and a Kool-Aid drinker will not matter to the millions in the middle class that have their wallets hit hard. There is nothing worse in the way of losing a vote than to hit someone in the pocketbook, and deceive them.
Your apathy of "too bad" will not help them with choosing to either insure or feed their children.
StoopidF*ck.
Only time will tell now won't it? I personally don't believe that "millions in the middle class will have their wallets hit hard." There will be no "choosing to either insure or feed their children." I see this as nothing more than a Republican smear campaign which will go the way of all Rethug conspiracy theories once things are worked out.

Well, first of all, regardless that I do have very strong opinions about abortion and sucking babies out of women's wombs in a vacuum is amoral and barbaric and that it will come back to haunt us if it hasn't already....my focus right now is watching the show unfold on the Democratic stage and hoping beyond hope it's the silver lining we were both hoping for in 2012.

Can't you see that we both win if that proves to be the case? No matter where we stand on the issue of abortion?

The premise of ObamaKKKare was that taxes on the rich would pay for care for the poor. The reality is that higher premiums on the middle class will pay for care for the poor. Just as planned.

The idea that ObamaKKKare would lower costs has already been proven idiotic.

The failure of the website may be a blessing in disguise for ObamaKKKare. If more people could get through, more people would find out how badly they are getting screwed.

DemoKKKrats will pay the price in Novenber 2014.

Also the fact that it pays for itself. This will end up being another sucking libtard welfare program.

Hmmmm. The city of Las Vegas has received $5.2 million in federal grant money since 2004 to build the Neon Boneyard Park and Museum... only $1.8 million of that was under the Obama administration.

The real cost to the federal deficit will be the huge increase in the number of people on Medicaid. ObamaKKKare has no funding whatsoever for that.

You really are correct about the damage that the religious right has heaped on the GOP since GHWB invited that scummy little fk Ralph Reed to join he and Barbara on the stage. Twas a sad moment in American politics.

And if the TeaParty wing of the GOP continues to allow slugs like Amy Kremer, Jenny Beth Martin and L Brent Bozell III to control the GOP message__well__they may as well dig up David Duke.
