Election is about the big picture

For Republican women, the 2012 presidential election is about far larger, more important issues than whether or not the government should pay for birth control. Full Story

Great editorials that make sense rather than hyperbole and demonization. Go Romney, Go God.

Go God? Really? Nowhere is it stated in scripture that Christians were to be involved in politics. As a matter of fact, that is one of the reasons the Christians were persecuted by the Romans: refusal to participate in the Roman system of government.

The IRS is very clear in granting tax exempt status to religious organizations. They are to keep their hands out of the government and vice-versa.

As to the 2 Chronicles 7:14 Pray For Our Nation signs. Context, context, context. God was speaking to his chosen people, Israel. Not to Mitt Romney, Billy Graham or Pat Robertson. And by the way, Israel rejected Christ and stated that they had no King but Caesar. And Jesus rejected their offer to serve as their leader on earth when he clearly stated that his Kingdom was not of this earth.

Just because God has been invoked as being involved in one side or the other in various political conflicts does not make it so. The Nazi soldiers having "Gott Mit Uns" on their belt buckle did not mean that God was for their cause any more than any other country who co-opts him for their side.

Read what is commonly known as the "establishment clause" of the US Constitution. As in the government shall make no laws regarding the establishing of religion or any particular religion. The founders also spoke of a Creator and a God. That does not mean they were giving the green light to establish a religion of the United States.

The one thing that's certain, this election season, is that the Rednik Nazis will continue to win in SS Pork.
And the other thing

United States

you can bank on is that one-note "TRVTH" will continue to think he is a lot funnier and insightful than he really is by recycling the words "Nazis" and "SS Pork" in every post. Maybe you could write some new material, instead of trotting out the same old tired stuff post after post, NVMBSKVLL.

I just copyrighted the phrases "SS Pork" and "Rednik Nazis".

From now on, anyone else that uses them besides me in every post will have to pay up big time.

This means you, Rednik Nazis living in SS Pork.

Did you see how I was able to incorporate both "Rednik Nazis" and "SS Pork" into the same sentence there?

I am genyus.

Herasy or should I say heresay. Many of us believe God has a hand in everything great and small. The great being getting this Country back on moral highground by voting Obama out...the little...your mind and "historical perspective". God is the center of religion(s) in the United States as well as around the world whether you like it or not.

I would like to commend all of the women that have given their opinions in this post. As a conservative woman living in Texas (but dreaming of living in Colorado), it's great to hear so many women voicing their opinions on what this election is really about and not falling for the biased, liberal media efforts to brainwash women into thinking that a republican presidency means going to back the turn of the 20th century when it comes to women's rights. I am especially excited to read Michelle Hurni's comment about getting back to the constitution! I like to think of myself as a Liberty Republican which is about the same as Ronald Reagan and Ron Paul mixed together. I am urging all of you conservative Colorado women to start looking at the next batch of candidates coming up for 2015 - the liberty candidates. If you truly want to go back to fiscal responsibility, way less government and getting back to our Constitutional rights and making the government stick to the constitution while making laws and passing legislation, you have got to stop counting on the Republican/Democrat paradigm and realize that today, Rs and Ds are one in the same. Please look at your liberty candidates and help us put a stop to the two party system that our founding fathers warned us about.

I love you ladies! You gals rock!!

It was the Repugnut women's group that got together with a concerted campaign to swamp the letters sections of both local newspapers.(I'm sure they did so with their husbands' permission!)

Over in the Estes Park News one of the 'gals' wrote about Obama's supposed 900 or so executive orders. That's a ridiculous FauxSnooze / TeaBag talking point that has been debunked over and over, but here it was in print! What a shame that the woman could not do a little fact checking prior to displaying her stupidity before the entire community.

(Obama has issued 138 executive orders. All executive orders written by all presidents are easily researched. It's only idiots who beleive chain emails and accept them blindly as fact.)

Yes many of us believe in God. You just need to look around you to see his hand in things. Jesus made it very clear, as did the writers of Bible books after his death, that God's kingdom would have nothing to do with any government on earth.

Saying that any human leader is going to get this or any country back on some solid moral footing is untrue. I never said that God is not at the center of religion. What I said was that just saying that he is on your side does not make it so. The Germans and Italians in WW II claimed the same religions as the Americans and their Allies in that war. Whose side was he on?

Not to mention the huge numbers of clergy who have engaged in various sexual misdeeds down through the years. There is your moral high ground. Church and state. Do not mix. Ever.
