In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold.

    Obama Tax supporters=what is more important to you

    Regretably, lobbying is "legal" to give money. The hitch in the get-a-long is that congress is NOT required to accept the funds. Of course, if they refused, Elected representative would change rapidly and, we would finally elect patriots rather than greedy. Realistically, how many of these...

    What's Happening in this country?

    Actually I was referring more to "willingness" to help our brothers. This seems to be the missing link. The government threats, cohersions, etc. cannot enforce willingness. Maybe I'm incorrect here but from a number of the posts it's all about me. Are you suggesting that the government is...

    Inhumane at best. Let 'em die but not a nickle from my pocket! Not my problem. I don't live in this country for this crap! God help you if you are ever in need. It's for sure no one else will.

    What's Happening in this country?

    Why would I be concerned St. Peter's converted stats? There should be no room in government for religion, regardless of its roots. We escaped from England because of? . . . . No one I know wants to be ruled, but represented. We should not adopt a Christian or other religious doctrine to rule...

    What's Happening in this country?

    I couldn't agree more with your first statement. I claim it shouldn't be as well. However, isn't it a personal responsibility of Christians to help their brother? I am in completely in touch with the role of government. . .Not to be infused with religion to make political points. "Just...

    What's Happening in this country?

    My assertion is simply based on humanity. Not religion, simple ethics. Good. If this was visible by actions as well as words, we wouldn't have this forum. "Give" all but not money?

    What's Happening in this country?

    Agree on both points! Theocracy is what we escaped from. We want smaller government so long as the religious right can put it in place. EVERYONE FOR THEMSELVES! What a country.

    What's Happening in this country?

    Not all citizens are Christian but the right uses that leverage to gain votes. If not for the welfare of the nations, then who? Is your money so precious to you that you resent giving to others? If that's true, then you worship your possessions more than people. No problem with me but if you...

    What's Happening in this country?

    You're correct. However, it really has to be one or the other. I'm not sure how it could be both. (I am not a Christian. However, I am familiar with the teachings and the preaching.) I am indicating that the claims made on the right, i.e. Christianity as a lynchpin to win elections is not...

    What's Happening in this country?

    Action speak louder than words. It is one thing to claim in words that we are Christians or that our politics are driven by our religious training. It is quite another to put forth programs or plans that are obviously contradictory to those teachings. Paul Ryan's budget, with Mitt Romney says...

    How to possible change congress to be representatives

    The majority of congress are career politicans. They spend literally hundreds of thousands of dollars to be elected. There is a reason. . . . . . Would it benefit the country if all lobbists were prohibited from financial influence of our politicians? We would probably change politicians in...

    Marco Rubio

    I live in Florida. Rubio is just another kid with good looks and is a REAL NUT! This kid is beyond the pail. . .by far. Operative term is kid. . . .He can speak from a point of no experience, just extremely loaded ideas about how far right he can go and how good he can look. In other words...
