You want the right to marry any member of the opposite gender you want as many times as you want, but would deny a similar right to many others just because you think their choice is a sin. Well, the Catholics think that serial marriage is a sin (as do I although I wouldn't use the word sin), but if the govt decreed that the only way you could remarry was if your spouse died, you would scream bloody murder (and I suspect that the actual murder rate would go up).

    A true conservative (which is what the republicans are SUPPOSED to represent) wants the govt to take care of the business that is rightly relegated to govt, and STAY out of all else.[/QUOTE]

    Very true but unacceptable by today's Conservatives! The above is now at the core of the Libertarian Party and as someone as open-minded as you should consider a return to it.

By standing down and compromising your view, then you are supporting it.

    The point is this, if you think social issues lost the election, you are wrong. If republicans took the side of the democrats concerning these issues they still wouldn't get the vote because the democrats don't care what we support, they could find a transgendered black lesbian pot smoking abortion doctor to endorse their party and the democrats would call them a puppet or an Uncle Tom. The Republicans would lose credibility and integrity. Changing their stance will change nothing.

    It's the fact that everyone overlooked where we are and are going, Boeing held off on a large layoff until after the election, so the unemployed number will rise, the economy still sucks, gas prices are sky high, insurance will be forced down our throats, and Obama wants us to be morally, socially, and economically like Europe.

    Just curious. By what standard would you guys define the level of "useful" education? Whenever I see the word "spew" in these posts, I find a lack of critical thinking and limited reasoning skills. Read more. Increase your vocabulary. Check your news sources. Then, debate away and be part of the solution!

    I don't recall using the word "spew"... Not there is anything wrong with that. But you did.

    According to your cohorts, those institutions are worthless.
    The Libertarian Party believes that all persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. A call for the repeal of the income tax, abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes. LP.org

    Please, if you can, show one post where any of the "COHORTS" said these institutions were "worthless."
