So he was a Democrat who switched to Republican and is now an Independent and they say Romney flip flops?
Freedom is part of being American. When you vote the ballot doesn't make you select only Democrat or Republican, but you can select whatever candidates you choose.

I guess Romney must have built a munitions factory in Massachusetts when he was governor. God help the world if he is elected.(Note) good idea is to buy stocks in body bag companies if you want to get rich under Romney.
About 3300 more people have committed suicide each year during Obama's presidency so those body bags are already spoken for.

Romney did not spend his own money. His campaign staff spent $5000 in campaign contributions at Walmart.

Hold the Koran in one hand, and the New Testament in the other hand.
How about you hand the book that teaches tolerance, love, peace, humility, equality, forgiveness, and everything else that makes life better, to a stranger,... and burn the one that teaches intolerance, women in sexual slavery, and killing anyone and everyone who has a different belief.
Which one do you burn?
The New Testament or the Koran?
Neither. I don't burn books.

But then again, I don't need any book of ancient fairy tales, to convince me of the existence or the nature of the Divine.

The Divine is made manifest in every particle of the universe - why would it need a book to make itself understood? Only men who don't listen have that problem. Free will and all like that...

As for the separation of Church and State, I'm all for it. Big fan. One's religion and one's service to one's country should function independently, as one has nothing to do with the other. Religion is personal, and public service is, well, public.
Since we don't all 'worship' the Divine in the same way,(and some of us don't worship at all) it is against the Constitution to legislate the tenets of one religion over another, and passing any religious test for eligibility to public office is EXPLICITLY forbidden.

"Religion as Government" is in the Koran, I think....and there was that quote about 'rendering unto Caesar...' now who said that again?

It never ceases to amaze me how often Christians tout the Bible, but refuse to heed it. You folks need a new shtick.

Well, for one, FEMA is on the job.

Unlike New Orleans in 2005.

And second, Obama spent time with Governor Christie reviewing the damage to NJ.

You sir, epitomize the hypocrisy of a so-called 'pro-life' stance. You're only pro-life when it suits you - or supports your lifestyle.

'Save that fetus!' becomes 'Shoot that bread thief!'

Oh wait, I forgot - you're the one who supports abortion for a certain demographic, and is against it for everyone else.

Ah yes,separation of church and state, Founding Father style.

It is no exaggeration to say that on Sundays in Washington during the administrations of Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809) and of James Madison (1809-1817) the state became the church. Within a year of his inauguration, Jefferson began attending church services in the House of Representatives. Madison followed Jefferson's example, although unlike Jefferson, who rode on horseback to church in the Capitol, Madison came in a coach and four. Worship services in the House--a practice that continued until after the Civil War--were acceptable to Jefferson because they were nondiscriminatory and voluntary...... Throughout his administration Jefferson permitted church services in executive branch buildings. The Gospel was also preached in the Supreme Court chambers.
Jefferson's actions may seem surprising because his attitude toward the relation between religion and government is usually thought to have been embodied in his recommendation that there exist "a wall of separation between church and state." In that statement, Jefferson was apparently declaring his opposition, as Madison had done in introducing the Bill of Rights, to a "national" religion. In attending church services on public property, Jefferson and Madison consciously and deliberately were offering symbolic support to religion as a prop for republican government."

Yeah, don't you love the ever-hypocritcal pro-lifers.

They come charging in to save a fetus.

But once it's born and the parents need welfare, government-assisted medical care, nutrition programs, etc. the reaction of the right is:

"Nooooo... not out of my walllet! Let it die."

Lovely - off the cuff history lessons are my favorite.

Don't forget to tip your corner historian, folks.

Here's a tip from me: Don't try to teach your gramma how to suck, well, ANYTHING.

What economic collapse of 08? What 726,000 per month job lost? What Depression second only to 1929. You Repubs are so hypocrite.
