One of the few points of light on the right was the discovery, just as the festivities were getting under way, that the Democrats had drafted a platform that—like George Washington’s farewell address, Abraham Lincoln’s “House Divided” speech, and the Constitution of the United States—does not mention God by name.

Do you?
Sure I want all people to have freedom and equality. Once again, those things are not a given or an entitlement. They are earned! You know that statement that freedom isn't free? It holds true.

Murder and stealing are moral judgements. They are personal ideals. Abortion for instance is murder of innocents, yet many claim it's not murder. So where is the line to be drawn? When do laws violate our personal, moral decisions? More often than not. Taxation is stealing when it is used to advance a corrupt government toward the violations of our freedoms.

Murder and stealing take away anothers civil rights so that is why it is illegal....Abortion is not murder.

Yes many of us are dead set againt any pre-emptive and illegal wars....Yet our tax money goes for it...

So, an unborn baby has no rights? Duh! TOO bad your momma recognized your rights inutero. Take note to the usage of TOO, meaning as in also or used in TOOMANYLAWS. I am dead set against my tax dollars funding abortion, yet it happens and the government and planned parenthood cook the books to conceal it because it's against the LAW!
