I,for one am tired of hearing my country run down,tired of all Sassy's negative postings of how this country is destroyed and gone to pot.
Tired of hearing what Mother Jones thinks,Raw story dug up,what Sassy "THINKS" and what we all are,what we do to poor little pitiful her.
WE need to hear good news and we need new faces to deliver it.
I welcome change just like sometimes we need to move to get rid of all our excess junk.I accept whoever is chosen,whoever is elected and until I see different,I will support the party.But our land is good we are AMERICA.Or state is good and everybody needs to see good in all things for a change.

I am a Democrat who believes abortion is wrong.

Republicans do not....they profess to be "Christians" yet seem to know little of the teachings of Christ.
If we are going to preach that abortion is a sin, then "we" must be willing to put the resources into programs to help that 15 year old child that is having a child raise, clothe, feed, educate, and house that child. If "we" are not willing to commit those resources to that child (and Republicans certainly aren't) then it might prove helpful for them to look up the word hypocrite...
You made a lot of broad statements here and lumped all Republicans into your own category. Just as you stated you, as a professing Democrat, do not always align with party beliefs neither do all Republicans.
As far as knowing the Bible, I don't feel many people ever confess to knowing or understanding all the Bible has for us. I have gone to church all my life, even attended the nine months before I was born.My maternal grandfather was a pastor of the church I grew up in and I have, and still do attend church services three times a week, have taught Sunday School Classes, Vacation Bible School, and ladies Bible classes. My church gives thousands toward foreign and domestic missions. I take every word the Bible says as truth. As for wanting the government to take care of human failures....no, that is not in the Bible. We, as human beings have the responsibility to care for our own and, "to love our neighbor as ourselves". If everyone did that, the government could do what it was established to do. Social reform is not the government's job.

Good grief, are you the pot or kettle? You are an even older "biddy" and everything you accuse Sassy! Seems your only agenda is bad mouthing her. Why don't you talk about the topic and stop with the personal attacks. If I knew my granny was carrying-on like you on an internet blog, I would take her computer away and admit her to the psych ward!

Assassinating the president is murder as well, but that doesn't seem to concern you, as you cheered on the idea in a previous post. That kinda destroys any chances you might have to claim the moral high ground.

You also made some broad statements in the post I answered. Based on that post,and this one, I don't think even the inordinate amount of time you claim to spend in Church is enough. You seem awfully good at casting stones, for someone admonishing others to love their neighbor.
Your vision of what the "government's job" is and mine are different. I think a government that would allow it's citizens to be homeless, hungry, or sick without the ability to see a doctor or be admitted to a hospital, simply because they are poor isn't much of a government or much of a country, certainly not a "Christian" one, no matter how many times Republicans say it is.

You well informed folk who watched network coverage, especially MSNBC, which did not cover ANY speech by a non-white, missed one of the best speeches of the night.

Black, female, and also a Morman, Mia Love, mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and GOP candidate for U.S. Congress, which, if she wins would make her the first black GOP congresswoman, gave a rousing speech which brought the entire floor to their feet several times.

“Let me tell you about the America I know. My parents immigrated to this country with $10 in their pockets and the hope that the America they heard about really did exist.

The America I know is grounded in the determination found in patriots and pioneers. It’s found in the Olympic athletes and every child who looks at the impossible and says,‘I can do that.’
That’s the America I know.”

She also lambasted President Obama whose polices, she said,“have failed us. We’re not better off than we were four years ago. And no rhetoric, bumper sticker or Hollywood campaign ad can change that.”

Whatever you do, do not watch her speech linked here:

And keep telling we’re all racists.

Sorry we do not agree on issues..you are promoting a welfare state of government. I do not. I also try to attack issues, not people, unlike most on this forum.

Not trying to be disagreeable with you but I've heard positive on Chris's speech.You must not have seen the coverage when he was asked to run and took time to decide.Turned it down .Health and weight issues.
He was not ready,maybe next election.
WE need to hear positive news and I was impressed and liked his manner of presentation.
He does not have to be all Romney to be important to his party.He did turn it down.Talked about his weight issue.Time was not right.
You just make this stuff up in your own mind, don't you? But, the Political stuff you probably read off the Propaganda sites and then, add some of your own delusions to it.
The Personal attacks? Delusions of your own Mind, no doubt! I swear...they've got People locked up that are more sane than you are! But, then again, maybe you are locked up!

Maybe you better read what the People who get paid to listen for a Living, think of Christie's speech, since you live on a world only you can understand and haven't had a realistic thought in years, if ever.

Oh, and Christie turned Romney down on his Running Mate Offer because he would have had to resign as Governor (it's the Law) and Christie said he wasn't willing to do that, because he didn't think Romney could win!

Sure timbuk2, who would'nt vote for a non working multi-millionaire making [we think] at least 30 million a year [on money they don't have hidden in secret caymen island and swiss banks] who wants to raise a working man's taxes more than 2700.00 a year while lowering his own taxes down to less than 1%. actually 0.8% why you would have to be a fool not to think that was a smart thing to do, right? politifact has the facts and the real truth. by the way President Obama has lowered the middle class taxes to the lowest rate since 1960 and given over 17 small biz tax breaks. I know I know facts don't matter to limping teabillies who continue to shoot themselves in the foot...... after voting for GW twice you no doubt need a cane or maybe even crutches....

I can't wait for Obama to be reelected.

I'm gonna quit my job, use my retirement savings for trips and luxuries. Cause Obama said the Government was gonna take care of all of us.
All my families medical, food, housing and utilities needs will be taken care of. I am "entitled" to live on my azz.

Only question is.. If we are all sitting on our respective arses, who is footing the bill?

They are all controlled by lobbyist. If you really think they are in office to help us you are as I said stupid sheep. Just follow there every word you idiots. Politicians are there to serve big business and the super rich, not me and you. Start using your head people vote for who will take care of your needs not a political party.
