this.

the media makes big deals about shit like this instead of empowering people to get pissed off about all those issues you mentioned. Imagine if people got as fired up about how shitty our economy is as they did for a fucking chicken sandwich.

That is the biggest problem with America today. If the Liberal news was pumping out stories on every economic bill passed, nobody would tune in. So what do they do? Broadcast the shit out of abortion and gay rights, issues that get even the most uninformed citizen interested. It's smart. It makes their advertising revenue (again, they claim to be for the Liberal - yet, really all they care about is the almighty dollar they make in advertising, and at the end of the day, yes, CNN is all about the corporate dollar, and you better believe their executives would prefer huge tax breaks for their mothership of a network).

But that isn't why you vote for a President. And the latest one - and let me preface saying despite being fiscally conservative - I am not a Romney supporter -who gives a SHIT how much money or how many houses Romney has. Since when was success a bad thing in this country?

Fuck, every single President went to Harvard, Yale, or Princeton, and they all belonged to those secret societies, Republican, Democrat, or other, and have been in the same social circles since birth. A social circle that certainly DOES NOT represent the rest of society. It's a fucking joke that one President would claim to relate more to society than another because of party line. They were all elitists through college. Believing otherwise is a joke.

It is ironic and humourous that the same theists who have no problem persecuting gays will get totally bent out of shape if someone appears to be persecuting them, even though both freedoms come from the same source and even (at least in Canada) the same clause in the document.

Nonetheless, backstop has a good point. We are better than those nutters, but we have to show that, by behaving better than them. Let'em sputter on trying to explain how their "superior morality" results in a smaller, uglier soul.

Since that party makes a candidate's religious beliefs a major -- nay, a primary consideration. Like it or not, the republican party as it currently exists is more about your religion than your fiscal views.

Which BTW, is something I've always found a little odd. The basic stance of conservatism runs directly counter to the teachings of the bible. If xians actually believed what they claim to believe, and actually followed it, they'd all be socialists. Now go tell Ann Coulter that. From a safe distance.

More ironic shit that makes no sense from the extreme-right.

Bingo. They're idiots who are hypocritical and logically inconsistent.

It's hilarious how conservatives hate on liberals and hippies, then go to church on Sunday and worship and long haired, bearded... hippy. I mean, Jesus basically was history's first recorded hippy.

Such as? Please expand.

And if it's "Jesus was a socialist" I'd rethink that.

I will say this all this controversy helped pump the economy with the 2 hour waits at CfA. Those supporters loved spending their money for shit that will kill them. Vote with your dollars and if that doesn't work stockpile guns and prepare for the end. Me, I'm getting a foreign bride and peacing out.

As someone who is fiscally conservative, I can wholeheartedly say that my issues (and I lean Republican) deal soley with real issues, not social issues.

You have been listening to too much TV, which of course paints conservatives as bible thumpers...it's all part of the Liberal propaganda to turn elections into social discussion, vs economic discussion.

And Jesus was a Liberal? Let's just say the Bible preaches more about working hard and earning it for yourself (Capitalist) than socialist. The bible preaches not expecting anyone to do anything for you, and to work hard, be a good person, and earn it yourself.

Start with David vs Goliath....
