Conservative Christians are monsters….Listen to the 5 discuss about this recent claim.
In light of me not being able to accept in offer to attend CPAC, I am going on a youtube binge of watching speeches …..Yes that is how I spend my Saturday afternoons and quite frankly I like it:p
Anyways, here are my favorite speeches so far and I would encourage you all to watch them, CPAC seemed great this year. Also, if you have watched/seen a great CPAC speech that I did not mention, it is most likley because I have not gotten to it yet so PLEASE feel free to inbox me suggestions and links and I will get to them all, trust me:) My top speaches (in no specific order) are…..

In order to to move forward in politics you need mutual respect. That means I have to respect those that I may disagree with but those same people should give me that same respect. So hear me clear, just because I believe that states have the right to define marriage in a constitutional way doesn’t make me a bigot. Just because I believe that life, ALL life no matter what stage, is just as important as the other doesn’t make me delusional.
In fact, the people who are actually closed minded in American politics are the people that loveeee to preach about certainty of science regard to climate but ignore the absolute fact that science has PROVEN that life begins at conception.
AEI President Arthur Brooks in today’s Wall Street Journal: “There is only one statistic needed to explain the outcome of the 2012 presidential election. Only 33% of Americans said Romney “cares about people like me.” Only 38% said he cared about the poor.
Perception is political reality, and over the decades many Americans have become convinced that conservatives care only about the rich and powerful.
“Citizens across the political spectrum place a great importance on taking care of those in need and avoiding harm to the weak.
Conservatives are fighting a losing battle of moral arithmetic. They hand an argument with virtually 100% public support—care for the vulnerable—to progressives, and focus instead on materialistic concerns and minority moral viewpoints.
Sadly I cant think of the exact post you referring too, however I can extend on what you said. You right in the sense that everybody is born equal. We all have the same inalienable rights as our neighbors and government or anyone else should not and CANT take that away from us. That is a very conservative way of thinking. Margret Thatcher once said “We’re all unequal. No-one, thank heavens, is quite like anyone else, however much the socialists pretend otherwise. And we believe that everyone has the right to be unequal. But to us every human being is equally important.” Freedom is not synonymous with an easy life. … There are many difficult things about freedom: It does not give you safety, it creates moral dilemmas for you; it requires self-discipline; it imposes great responsibilities; but such is the nature of life.
Now lets not throw around that word “Right” around. Marriage is not a right. Like me and true conservatives, things like this should not be held at the federal government level (first) I do Bellevue its a states issue. That is truly the true conservative way. Because like I said earlier, all humans are equally important and all people should be able to voice there opinion in a state wide election. Have the PEOPLES voices heard. Let me tell you, I will fight for my view but I will respect yours and I wont ever federally impose you to believe in the way I do. Mandates are unconstitutional (Obamacare anyone..) The true way to get things done like this is to have the people decide and then go through an amendment process if and only if enough people are in favor for a certain position.. The true constitutional way to solve this dispute. The true CONSERVATIVE way to solve this dispute.
“Not So”.. Fun Fact…
If you measure unemployment as they measured it in the 1930’s, today’s unemployment would be worse than any single year in the great depression.
Ill admit maybe a little biased but its kind of true:)
WHAT DO YOU THINK - SHOULD WE CHANGE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE?
Republicans in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Ohio are now considering changing the way electoral votes are counted. It is a winner take all system in 48 states but Maine and Nebraska award their votes by Congressional district.
A Maine/Nebraska style reform proposal has already been introduced in Pennsylvania, and Michigan and Wisconsin are poised to unveil their bills soon.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus endorsed the change this week.
Each state has the authority to shape its own election law. In 2011, Obama won 51.1% to Romney’s 47.2% of the popular vote, and won the Electoral College by a 332-206 margin.
Romney would have had an electoral college majority if the Congressional District system had been in place in the above states plus Florida.
For example, Obama won Wisconsin by 200,000 votes, but under the district system Obama and Romney would have split the electoral votes, five to five. Romney won 5 districts to Obama’s 3, and the President would have been awarded 2 extra votes for receiving a plurality.
In Pennsylvania, Republicans won 13 of its 18 districts, so Obama could have been awarded as few as 7 of the state’s 20 electoral votes. Obama carried 5 districts plus 2 additional votes for the plurality.
The present system allows urban areas to dominate rural areas. It’s possible to win only 7 of Michigan’s 83 counties and still win the state. Advocates of the reform proposals are asking why should Detroit and Philadelphia get to dictate to the rest of their states who the President is?
Have a history teacher explain this if they can.
Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.
Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.
Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost a child while living in the White House.
Since the Great Depression, the Obama administration is last in economic growth and job creation. We have gone 1,400 days without a budget and he is the first President in history to serve a full term without a budget.
He is also the first President with $1 trillion plus deficits four years in a row.”
