Maybe she took my advice. For a person to have such an obsession with the President seems to a sign of some mental imbalance.
It was a gorgeous day in sunny Florida at he beach!
Just a good judge of character. Obama was the wrong man to lead this country. Your own Democrats are beginning to see through the shallow politics. Why can't you?

Huckabees son skinned and hung a dog to die. Nuff said. Look who raised that monster, the pastor and his big fat wife. Oh please. What's next? Honey BooBoos father running for President?
Jesse Jackson's son went to prison for stealing his constituents money. Best not to point fingers.

Um, 1868 was way after the end of the Revolutionary War...and way after the Constitution was adopted.
You are wrong, just get over it and shut up about subjects you obviously know nothing about for now on.
It is embarrassing how the left and pathetic RINOs can only legitimize their positions with complete ignorance of American history.
oh dear...you still think you have any credibility on this topic?

go learn about your nation and become a real citizen...

<quoted text>ummm you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. the ist clearly states there is no state religion, thus a secular nation. that was from day one of this country.
you do realize that the s were not the US don't you? they were part of the british empire...you need to get at least to a third grade level of understanding of this issue before we go any further. like most people who think of themselves as far right, you don't even have the most basic understanding of your own nation or how it works...
what a crappy citizen you are.
you're half right...the founders clearly did not want a state religion, as in the Church of England....

but that doesn't mean that they were secularists.....

and many people who consider themselves to be right-of-center do not base that position on religion .....even if they are religious, they want to keep their religion separate from their politics.....

but then most or the religious cult people don't even understand their own cult. they were just indoctrinated as kids and follow along like mindless sheep as that is what they think they are supposed to do to be good people...
Galt agrees that many fundamentalist Christians are anti-abortion economic liberals....

this is an old debate.....

Conservatives will never prevail as long as they corrupt their message with religion.....

I don't know of too many "middle class families" who are "forced" to pay full tuition. Do you honestly believe they don't "mooch" off the system by applying for and receiving federal grants, loans and scholarships? I notice Republicans love to complain but never are never willing to take any action to correct the problem.
Pell grants are not available to middle class students, period...end of story...

just another welfare program....

As long as Americans still believe our unalienable rights are endowed by our Creator. It's when we stop believing that, we're in trouble. Perhaps why we're already in trouble.

We love the divided Republican Party

Galt understands that the Roman Church is Socialist and that Roman Catholics are faced with a choice between their intellect and the religion in which they were indoctrinated at birth.....

the two are clearly incompatible.....

Americans are anti-abortion on both sides. For moral reasons if not religious.

Sorry, I can't dumb this down any further for you. In the future you should focus your attention on purging the Republican party of the psychos that are costing you elections. Your ad hominem attacks don't cover the stench of your self-serving greed.
i'm not a member of the gop...never have been. see what i mean about you being stupid? you don't have the slightest clue as to wht youa re talking about on almost every issue...

face, you cannot counter the fact that the wealthy pay the vast majority of taxes in this nation.

try again when you think you might have learned something...

Not even close to true.

That is not true Galt. Christianity is the reason why social leftism hasn't destroyed this country completely yet.

Fiscal Conservatism will not save this country by itself.

All ideological BS aside... clearly the country functioned better when the inequality was less, when the rich paid their taxes at a higher rate, when govt wasn't seen as the enemy of the people, when corporations didn't entirely control the government.
What we have now is very much like the situation in the 1910-20's, and look how well that worked out. The govt kept it from completely collapsing, thanks to FDR and his alphabet agencies.
This time the govt bailed out the banks before the economy went down the pipe, though it was circling...
The solution of course is to completely repeal Reaganomics, starting with raising the upper tax rate at least by 20% as a first step.
Education, social welfare, poverty... all social aspects were better in that age of Great Society and Fairness Doctrine. The country has sucked since Reagan took office...
All of your BS aside, I think forcing you to work instead of mooch would be the best action.

sorry dear, all those states ratified the constitution, which at that time included the first amendment.

the US is a secular nation from day one.
