God has already been replaced in many churches--- with tax breaks for the rich idealism.

Let me weigh in on a couples issues I've looked over. I think John Sununu was absolutely correct when he said Powell endorsed Obama because he was black. Here's why, Powell endorsed Obama four years ago and it was for Obama's foreign policy decision making. Look a little closer at Obama's record vs Colin Powell's. Obama was basically a junior senator when he ran for president, and he took the job so seriously that he had a very poor record of showing up for senate hearings or votes. So, his record of great things he accomplished in the senate was not very stellar. He was a community organizer, that's about two steps above a social worker and doesn't exactly qualify one to be a president and his record reflects such. How many of you people think Colin Powell acheived being a 4 star general overnight and without showing up to lead and teach military personnel and got a pass on it as Obama did in the senate? Just as Obama, people's lives were in the hands of Colin Powell and he took his job seriously, and I have never recalled hearing where he lied about an attack or mission that went chaotic such as Libya. Colin Powell was taught to follow the honor code that a man of status in the military could not have acheived by blaming others for his mistakes. IMO, I think as the majority of blacks, Colin Powell endorsed Obama not off his record but because of race. If a hispanic, asian, etc runs for office, people of their race will support them too, not because of their record but because they're proud that someone of their race of ethnicity finally has a chance being POTUS. Let's get real, how long do you think Obama would have last under the command of Colin Powell in the military? Showing up late, not taking his job seriously and Obama would have taken a beat down for his arrogance quick fast and in a hurry in the military. They break you before they make you.
As far as taking God out of currency, schools, government buildings etc, go ahead, for the real believers, it doesn't take the belief out of our hearts, souls and minds. I give the God I serve more credit than needing to be on currency, schools, government buildings etc for me to believe and serve Him. We have churches and to be honest, the church isn't God either, it's a place believers go to worship together. God is in a real believer's heart, soul and mind and try taking that away.

It might be many but not all TSF. I attend a small church, we take up enough in tithes and offering to keep the lights on, the church maintained and the pastor works two jobs to compensate for what he couldn't make at a mega church. For a small church with limited resources we do a lot of community outreach and charity. My pastor plays by the rules as far as politics are concerned and only urges people to embrace the privilege we have to vote in this country and to vote your convictions. It would be prudent for everyone to remember that there's bad in every organized group from the workplace to church, but's those of us that know this, should be the bigger people and not engage in it. In my religious belief, one can't buy one's way to heaven.

<quoted text>The constitution is what prevents mob rule. It protects the minority. One day republicans will learn this most fundamental element of American government.
It is not about 'satisfaction' it is about freedom.
Mob rule= the 99%, the occupy crowd. The ones who Pelosi, Reid, Obama, and BSNBC all endorsed. How are they linked to the Republican party?
The Constitution - self admittedly in Obama's way as he states in his interview in 2001.

Here's what Obama said:
"If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote. I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order and as long as I could pay for it I’d be OK But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can't do to you. Says what the federal government can't do to you, but doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn't shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court-focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that."

And that lesson could be coming sooner than you think. Republicans are killing their own party with extremism and corruption of their own ideology. To fanatics, freedom only means the freedom to agree with them. so when republikans become the minority , and they have destroyed freedom with their taliban tactics, what will happen to them?

Republicans are sickos....Obama wins because he is sane....he supports more gays and blacks in Asheville....as do I. I funded his campaign $10,000.00 just to make it so. Churches in Asheville are sick ems do that TOOL

I appreciate that there are a few honest intelligent republicans remaining and I perceive you are one of them. But I know that 47% of repulbikans are slow and lack the ability to think for themselves. So my job is not to worry about those folks because because they will regurgitate whatever the republikans feed them, regardless of facts, truth,science , math or anything else. In their fantacy world, a vicious vulture captalist cult leader will save them from the evils created by that cult leader's political party... If that were only true.

Well Mikey, I ask you to explained communism, you said I did not know what it is so here maybe this will help.

com•mu•nism (kmy-nzm)
1. A theoretical economic system characterized by the collective ownership of property and by the organization of labor for the common advantage of all members.
2. Communism
a. A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.
b. The Marxist-Leninist version of Communist doctrine that advocates the overthrow of capitalism by the revolution of the proletariat.
Karl Marx said
Religion and communism are incompatible, both theoretically and practically.
Is that why you hate people that believe in God?
The tearing down of people’s religion and beliefs in God is the wanted attempt to tear down Americans and their freedoms. If there is a terrorist that Americans need to worry about it is you.

Would you reveal how much the Joe McCarthy era of the Red Scare influenced your thinking? My guess is that you were a young man during this time and it really had an effect on you. Would that be the case? Communism/socialism show up in about 90% of your posts.

Communism is nothing more than enslavement to a fascist state. With no hope of an individual being free to make life, what they can, with their own efforts. Their existent, their families’ existent, becomes state property as we are now.
This is not 50 years ago this is now.
Influenced comes from understanding what America needs to save it liberty and freedom for all and not to return to slavery.
