Nope I don't write to congress about something I really don't care about... I don't care if religion is believed or not... I care about what effects people directly and then I prioritize what I find important and what I don't... Religions of any kind are delusional in nature and sometime I give it a wide birth... Sometimes I don't but I in general don't care if money has God written on it, theres a cross on public land or somebody pushes a religious view... Just not that important but when asked by friends and relatives I tell them what I think about it...
As for All Republican Agendas ... That's absolutely false as in this thread I have not addressed All Republican Agendas so you only know the ones I do support but one... I have some Conservative views, Some Liberal views, some other more esoteric views .. Not a Republican View...
For an example I am against the death penalty, for legalization of all drugs, Don't give a crap about other peoples lifestyles, Thank Adults should be allowed to do just about anything they wish as long as they are held Responsible when their actions infringe of others in doing what they wish to do... And there are many other issues I totally disagree with republicans about... Some I agree with a bit, some I totally agree with....
I do not make stands Just because of some Group Think and take each and every specific issue I find of interest Individually with out Group Think Bias... I do have my own Biases but I Know those biases, I take those biases into consideration when I contemplate specific issues and formulate my Own Individual positions...
Seems you have some libertarian views. Ironic they do not apply to religion.
The lack of consistency is a problem.

Freedom of use of drugs will never be realized until those who vote republican refuse to tell their representatives how they feel on the subject.

I think recreational drugs should be allowed but regulated like any prescription drug. The tax dollar revenue would be huge. The drug war expenses would be a huge savings.
Democrats would go for this but they know the right wing will not allow them to do it, so they prioritize the fight to something they feel they can do.

I'm am Absolutely Consistent... You just have a view that if your preconceived notions of what you consider consistent... A person can enjoy head banging rock and roll and Mozart, Wear strip pants with checked shirt and still be consistent....

As for contacting politicians it's a useless endeavor unless there is a ground swell, When I see a ground swell of folks that agree with what I hold as an important issue I do write and call.. But a few people calling in telling them they want a joint does nothing..

We have a two party system, I don't like it but it is what the people have settled on.. In the end I have to place my vote on one of those two sides.. the Dem's and Repub's are 80% the same when it comes to the majority of policies with just a few issues that are approached differently... So I make my choice in the end based on a couple of over riding issues that have import to me..

I do not like either choice for different reasons.. I actually would have support Paul far more than what I have to select from now and did actively get involved in his efforts but when the people made their choices for who the last two standing would be then I make my choice from those.. But at no point have I been inconsistent...

To make a ground swell requires people actually doing it. In a sense you have to suspend reason for a moment and act on principle. Voting 3rd party is an example of this.

I totally disagree (Surprise!)... Voting 3rd party in a primary is fine.. Voting 3rd party in the main event is giving the party you most oppose a freebee... The Ground swell must happen Before the final event and it has to reach a level of support that makes it viable .. The suspension of reason and rationality is a sure way to fall to delusion...

"I have yet", "Most are", "are never", "only the well off". I just can't understand it. Were you kidnapped by a weird, so called "Christian" cult as a child and chained in the basement? You must have experienced something terrible to be this brainwashed.
The true Christians I know could care less how much money you have. They love one another and help one another with no thought of background or income levels. I am not speaking of one specific location in which I grew up in this type of environment and I am still surrounded by this one group of people. I am speaking of living in 8 cities and attending 8 churches over my lifetime and finding the same type of true Christians in each location. I am not saying everything was perfect all the time, but for the most part, the good far outweighed the bad.
Amen!
Far more good than bad!
Yes, you get the oddball, like my wife's aunt.

Since we being fanciful, I would like to think that Yahweh recycles and sends those "souls" back into other fetuses. Waste not, you know.....
Hmmm... now that I think about it, yes, that would be what he would do.
Not having had time to learn the hymns, chants and praises, a fetus soul wouldn't be much use to Yahweh who is only interested in being worshipped forever (that being the sole *no pun intended* purpose of heaven).
What do you think? Does Yahweh burn their little "souls" for not having had time to learn what he likes?

<quoted text>It is your BEHAVIOR that determines if you are a good person, not your beliefs. Are these good christians you speak of the same ones who protested blacks in public schools, condemned the unmarried woman for having a child, crossed the street to avoid the homeless person?
I could go on, but the point is that while they are nice to each other they close ranks to strangers and judge/condemn people. Here is the thing, I have encountered church people in many cities and they are all the same, every single one of them
"every single one of them"

take a look at the cspan site for the speech by Ron Paul just before the GOP convention. he is a libertarian on so many things - very interesting. I agree on about one third of his views, but not the economic ones and not the extreme of his foreign policy, though his views help to balance the horrid neocons. I disagree on tne 2nd amendment - the gOP wants to have unlimited rounds of ammunition in gun clips,, and not just easy to get guns! pandering to the sickos and paranoids.

voting for the least of the evils in a primary is the only way to be sure to make a difference. take a look at Jeff flake in Arizona. the least awful Republican running - not so good on policy, but a nice guy and not a hater. close to Ron Paul in libertarian views.

I am fully aware of what Ron Paul the libertarian stands for. I agree with some of it like cutting the military in half. But like you said, cutting all the help to our citizens is out of the question.
