We all have our own way of thinking, but if the third party starting getting more votes, the other two would start to listen.A vote for the lessor of two evils is ... well, just plain evil.
And a vote for any other party or a write-in, is really no vote at all and a waste of time. But that makes perfect sense, so I don't expect you to have even the slightest clue.
The Whole Truth is the Whole Truth - a Half Truth, is a Whole Lie.

I am relieved and thankful you took the time to see the truth.
It is difficult sometimes to realize we are duped. And we have been for well over 200 years.
The only truths available that will never cease are those told by Holy God-Jesus.
Our eternity is Jesus. Our home base is the Holy Kingdom awaiting us. Not this place, nor it's very dark and sinister politics. Nor it's "promises" or dreams.

What you call "truth" is NOTHING MORE than just more of your anti-catholic concoted, contrived and "made up" (hearsay history) that has more holes in it than a piece of Wisconsin Swiss Cheese! Jethro8, you aren't fooling (anyone) "except yourself" with these bible only Protestant history "exaggerated myths" that you "in your own desperation" hope SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE will be suckered into believing. I listened to this Protestant "history nonsense" for over 35 years before coming to the REAL TRUTH of TRUE Church History from the Apologistic authors and writer (both Catholic and Protestant) who "overwhelmingly agree" that Jesus established, formed and initiated HIS One True Catholic Church in Matt 16:13-21.
You worship God in "your way" and I'll worship God "IN HIS WAY" in and through His One True Apostolic Catholic Church.----YOU can DO and BELIEVE what you want-Jehthro8!
#400249 Nov 4, 2012
Jesus Christ established, formed and initiated ONE CHURCH---over 2000 years ago.---ONE TRUE CHURCH-----ONE TRUE (Universal) Church and one "belief" that is manifested in "one faith"---and that TRUTH is the Catholic Church. The Protestants have chosen to "reject the TRUTH, the belief and the faith" at the Protestant Reformation.(plain and simple)--that is why you have so many believers, believing "differently". With bible only Protestants there are over 42,000 different, contradicting, inconsistent beliefs--NOT BASED UPON THE BIBLE, but on "personal opinionated interpretation of the bible-----(Relativism---" What I think is true-----hlaf-truth, half-heresy----Christianity "

Robert says.......Why would Jesus and his disciples standout in history?
Christians ONLY claim Jesus to be the son of God. If world history at that time thought a man named Jesus was son of God they too would have recorded what they saw. Its obvious they didn't see anything. According to christian ONLY writings decades ONLY after 30AD were stories told about a man born of a miraculous birth, performed incapable feats by regular human beings, supposedly loved by everyone he met, yet according to christian ONLY writings a very short time later people were screaming for his death.
Christians get upset when they read about a man named Jesus being crucified, yet christians believe thats why he came to earth.
......no one else from the entire mediteranean ever mentions a Jesus or 12 apostles, or King Herod slaughtering male infants, or crucifixion, or resurrection. A CHRISTIAN ONLY story.....

Obama garners more support from roman catholics, yet the bishops across america spend $$ MILLIONS $$ fighting him. Millions of dollars that could have bought 10s of millions of boxes of kraft dinner and peanut butter for the poor.

Nonvoters: The Other Abstinence Movement
by Linton Weeks
November 03, 2012 5:12 PM
To many Americans, the right to vote in a presidential election is a sacred and precious opportunity. To others, the right to not vote is just as meaningful. And they exercise it.
In just-released data, the Pew Research Center reports that about 43 percent of Americans of voting age in 2008 didn't participate in the presidential election.
The report goes on to say who nonvoters prefer in the election coming up on Tuesday between President Obama and Mitt Romney.(No offense, but what difference does it make? They're not voting!)
While we still don't know what the total number of nonparticipants will be on Nov. 6, we do know that a large swath of Americans are not planning to vote early or late or at any time. For myriad reasons cynicism, apathy, moral objections, for example some people are choosing to abstain.
Recently we sent out a query on NPR's Facebook page asking the political abstainers to tell us why they do not plan to vote. Answers and answerers were all over the map. Conservative voters in predominantly liberal states and vice versa just didn't see the point.
A number of people are disenchanted with the Electoral College system. There are those who want to use the Internet to vote and govern, and there are those who just want to be left the heck alone by the whole process. And then there are some people who will not be voting for other reasoned reasons, including these:........
Hometown: Montgomery, Ala.
Occupation: Language interpreter
Reason: "I don't vote because as a Christian and a student of the Bible, I feel it is not a Christian's place to become involved in politics. If one were to research the early Christian church's opinion on politics, you would see that they, like Jesus, were neutral in all political matters since they consider God's Kingdom as the only solution to mankind's problems. Of course, they recognized the God-given authority of human government, obeyed said governments, but also separated themselves from any kind of political involvement."
Hometown: Jonesboro, Ark.
Occupation: Graduate assistant
Reason: "I am not a registered voter, I have never voted and do not plan to this election year. I do not vote because I believe that at the end of the day, money is more powerful than a ballot."
Courtesy of Luke Banda Age: 23
Hometown: Johnstown, Pa.
Occupation: Physical therapist assistant
Reason: "A simple understanding of statistics shows that my vote does not matter."

Kinda, just maybe, makes you think that (maybe) they don't all believe the same things, doesn't it. Well there goes HOHO's argument.

Since we haven't gotten to faith, and what it does, and that you state you do not have faith, your quotes of Bible verses is noted, but would be very involved at explaining at this time. I would rather have faith unfold its meaning as time progresses....
Your definition of belief is to simple, so it will be confusing to distinguish between faith and belief. Consider using wikipedia for a definition of belief. It is a little more expanded and a descriptive definition.
If you cannot be aware of, or understand the wikipedia definition at this time, we might approach things using reason instead....

the RCC had absolutely NOTHING to do with Christians celebrating Sunday because that was the Day that the Lord was Resurreced, and Paul mentioned it in his Letters.
it was called the "Lords Day" in his epistle.
do some research before you spout your lies.
Lord's Day - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord%27s_DayTextual tradition · Early church · Middle ages · Modern church
Lord's Day in Christianity is generally Sunday, the day of communal worship. It is observed by most Christians as the weekly memorial of the resurrection of Jesus ...
By the mid-2nd century, Justin Martyr wrote in his apologies about the cessation of Sabbath observance and the celebration of the first (or eighth) day of the week (not as a day of rest, but as a day for gathering to worship):
and since you are not a Christian,
IT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS IN THE FIRST PLACE AS TO WHO IS RESPONSIBLE OR WHO ISNT.
#400261 Nov 4, 2012
and to prove that ellen white has no authority to tell any one that they MUST worship on Shabat, look closely at what Justin is further saying.
argued that Sabbath was not kept before Moses, and was only instituted as a sign to Israel and a temporary measure because of Israel's sinfulness, no longer needed after Christ came without sin.
"A SIGN TO ISRAEL" AS CHRISTIANS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SAYING, NOT THE CHRISTIAN

4bdn started calling him cesspool, and i must admit tha I also did a couple of times until I figured it out that he was a pretty good guy.
so Clay, I apologize for stooping to the level of some others on this forum.
and I have quit calling the catholics names just because they are catholics.
#400264 Nov 4, 2012
kinda funny ,
I said that and I actually meant it, and your buddies, 4bdn and the sda have not shut their mouth about it yet.LOL

I am happy to express to you that I have been aware of the seeming contradictions you propose in your addresses to me and have enough understanding to say they are based in existential ways....In short you are an existentualist.
It is for this reason you are not well understood on this forum, as what you consider contradictions, are explained back to you in a different form than the way you understand....
That of course does not mean that I can explain them. But the very existence of existential thoughts are "outside" of normal epistemilogical ways that most persons relate to the environment....
The problem is that you will never be able to get rid of angst(which most people try to resolve), and the Other(having a unified view)....

the "son/daughter of perdition"
Denying or refusing to SUBMIT to
any of HIS WORD/LAW, Genesis to Revelation,
is denying or refusing
THE ONE WHO WROTE IT.
GOD YHSHWH/JESUS is the SAME GOD
with the SAME THOUGHTS and WAYS, today,
as HE WAS before HE CREATED us;
as HE WAS when HE WALKED on earth.
HE HAS NOT CHANGED.
The human (man) of perdition is being formed
Let no man deceive you by any means:
for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first,
and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,
or that is worshipped;
so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
shewing himself that he is God.
People have stop BELIEVING HIS HOLY WORD/LAW,
HIS Book of LIFE, Genesis to Revelation,
is COMPLETE TRUTH.
HOLY SPIRIT SUBMITS to GOD YHSHWH'S HOLY WORD/LAW
because HIS HOLY WORD/LAW is SPIRITUAL.
HOLY SPIRIT is HIS HOLY LIVING LAW, in me.
HIS WRITTEN LAW is HOLY and SPIRITUAL.
carnal mind/flesh refuses to
and never will SUBMIT to HIS SPIRITUAL LAW.
carnal mind/flesh is the enemy of GOD YHSHWH.
In this "fallen" state
people start following their own beliefs.
They pick and choose
what they want to believe in HIS HOLY WORD/LAW.
The ONE "holding the son of perdition back"
is taken out of the way when
HOLY SPIRIT is denied.
This creates the man (human) of sin,
the "son/daughter of perdition".
The one who makes oneself god of his body,
submitting to what one wants to submit to.
My body is GOD YHSHWHS BODY; HIS TEMPLE.
I AM to SUBMIT HIS BODY to HIM.
One who exalts oneself, above GOD YHSHWH,
does not SUBMIT one's mind, body, and life,
to some or any of GOD YHSHWH'S Book of LIFE,
Genesis to Revelation;
denying HIS HOLY SPIRIT.
This one makes oneself one's own god,
the "son/daugther of perdition".
ROM 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy,
and the commandment holy,
and just, and good.
Why, the LAW is HOLY
and the COMMANDMENT HOLY,
JUST and GOOD.
ROM 7:13 Was then that which is good made death unto me?
But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me
by that which is good; that sin
by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.
Does this mean that that which is good is death to me? GOD forbid.
But for me to see sin, that was death to me,
that sin had to be shown really sinful to me by the COMMANDMENT.
ROM 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual:
but I am carnal, sold under sin.
Because we know that the LAW is SPIRITUAL,
but I am carnal, a slave to sin.
ROM 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh;
but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
Because they that follow carnal self do carnal things,
but they that follow HIS SPIRIT do things of HIS SPIRIT.
ROM 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death;
but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because to be carnal minded is death,
but to BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED is LIFE and PEACE.
ROM 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:
for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Because the carnal mind is an enemy of GOD,
because it does not submit to the LAW of GOD,
neither can it.
ROM 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh
cannot please God.
So, they that are carnal minded
cannot please GOD.

..." God wants total allegiance to Him, not to caeser."
I agree entirely. Because we are called "OUT".
"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;" (1 Peter 2:9).
The Lord spoke to His people through the apostle Peter and used several terms in order to help them appreciate their spiritual position in the Holy Christ-Jesus. He referred to them as a "chosen" or elect" race, as a "holy nation" and as a "people for God's own possession." By Holy God's grace we occupy a very favored position in His universe.
Peter continues by saying, "for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy." (1 Peter 2:10). Christians are referred to as "the people of Holy God" and as having received God's "mercy." This is the result of holy God's grace and holy love, not according to our own merit.
But notice "the people of God." tremendous designation and value is stated and described, about each of these designations, note the phrase in verse 9: "...Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light."
It is a very, very important matter to be a part of this "holy nation" of "people for God's own possession" who are "the people of God" .
