That's the problem, I can't (and won't) look at her stand on other issues because I can't get past the fact that she believes this. I do not want to be represented in the US Congress by a woman who will turn to the bible instead of science as a basis for her decisions on things like our environmental policies.<quoted text>
Well I wouldn't be so sure
"Who covereth the heavens with clouds, who prepareth rains from the earth, who maketh grass grow upon the mountains."
"He causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He maketh lightnings for the rain; He bringeth the wind out of His treasuries."
And probably the most appropriate:
"Fire and hail; snow and vapors; stormy wind fulfilling His word."
Anyway, enough bible study. What are her other issues? What are the issues of her opponent? Does she want to cut taxes and bring jobs back to Illinois? Does her opponent want to raise taxes and impose strict sanctions on business? I don't know this woman and since she's not in my district, don't really care. But I suggest you look at the other issues. I know you're smart enough than to be a one-issue voter. I suggest you do some research, on both candidates, and decide who's best to represent YOU, and your community. YOU might be happy with your government job and family cramped into a small apartment, but are your neighbors? Wouldn't you want a house, better opportunity? Higher paying job? Or are you happy being "stuck?"
More jobs bring more opportunities for people just like you. You haven't had these opportunities in 14 years. You willing to change that?
And you're as beautiful as church bells in the sunrise... with a cooing dove atop the steeple
And I am perfectly happy with my life, my job, my abode. I have everything I need and do not need more, more, MORE! And I resent you calling me "stuck". That would seem to pertain more to you than me. I have plenty of opportunities for advancement in my organization; I *choose* not to pursue them at this time because I want to spend my energy on my children, not my job.
And flattery will not help.
