    Right - all those pinko commie Democrats hate America almost as much as they hate God. Let's see, estimates are that around 6-9% of Americans identify themselves as atheists. So YOU do the math (use a calculator if you need it) the vast majority of your godless Democrats actually believe in God. And did the "USA" chants at the Dem convention when the former Gov. of Mich. was sounding off on the saving of the American auto industry sound manufactured to you? Sorry my friend, Republicans don't have sole ownership of love of country.

    I just looked over the rest of your postings, "Scalded Eagle". All your rants are shallow echoes of the brain candy you're being spoon-fed from the Limbaugh/Beck/Hannity/O'Riley baby bottle. I can only hope that some day you may be able to objectively analyze facts and think for yourself. I won't bother revisiting any of your forums since they are bereft of facts, supportable data or simple logic. But by all means, go ahead and keep sounding off for the the shrinking pool of small minded and close minded folks who are slurping from the same trough. If the Republican party doesn't open it's arms to a more diverse set of beliefs and show a willingness to actually govern, it will become irrelevant on the national level within the decade.

    Merlin! You never win with republicans. Bad because they don't mention God, bad because they do mention him. Well, you are all entitled to your opinions but beware your candidate is a prestigious member of a cult that believes in an alien god and don't follow the Christian Bible. Not judging, just informing.

    It is truly absurd. The Democrats (only in prime time) try to sound like Republicans by postulating and posing as real Americans, telling stories of relatives who lived the American dream, worked hard and became somebody. But then after those stories, their conclusion is that we should vote for Obama. It's like saying 2+2 = 5. Obama and the Democrats don't believe in free enterprise, making a profit, rugged American individualism, or God. Their religion is their politics and consists of big government taking care of everyone and abortion on demand. If the Democrats would stop posing as Republicans and change the name of their party to the "Democratic Socialist Party", it would be much more accurate.

    Interesting, Democrats posing and postulating as "real Americans" by sounding like Republicans. Uh, that's funny, cause every time I hear Republicans telling every one how they are good, Godly Christian patriots they actually come off sounding like the HYPOCRITES they really are. Oh., and I hear the same thing from good, Godly patriotic gentlemen as well.

    Just because we believe in a moral code and fail to live up to it does not mean we should stop striving for it. We are all sinners and fall short of God's teachings. The difference between those of us who believe in a higher power, and those who believe the government is the highest power is that we stand for something. The ones who deny God don't have to stand for anything because they have no standards. So it's easy for them to call us hypocrites. I'm not claiming to be holy, I'm just trying to promote moral values. It is the Democrats who are hypocrites by trying to pretend they stand for values that they couldn't care less about. That's why it was so hilarious seeing them trying to pretend that they voted to keep God in their platform, when the "No's" clearly were louder than the "Yes's". And Villaragossa's teleprompter already told him to say the "Yes" votes won. Now if that isn't hypocrisy, I don't know what is.

    I wouldn't be "very surprised". There's a difference between the being known as God and the character you believe is God. I know, the Abrahamic God is a jealous one and demands we utter his name at every parking lot we step foot on. At least that is the impression I get from the Republican party.

    I'm not one to chastise someone for either invoking God or not bothering to. There are far too many interpretations of this thing people call "God". If they think it wags its finger and sends hurricanes and thunderstorms to punish people for not following his law, by all means...they have that right. I haven't landed on any evidence that proves "God" is such a way. So I will continue to believe that God doesn't give a damn about a National Convention.

    You are aware that neither you, nor your religion, holds an authority on what God is, who God is, and how a follower can believer, worship, follow God.

    You have your own beliefs, that's great. Even greater is that others too have their own beliefs. To consider me wrong is a symptom of grandiose delusions.

    If we take your version, then it is apparent that God blessed Obama with the Presidency. The Republican party then took the part of the antagonist to further break down this God fearing man. Didn't David understand more his role after losing Bathsheba? So you should respect Obama for he is under the greatest tribulation ever. Obama is the modern day Job.

    Of course you wouldn't believe that because it's equally nonsensical as believing God gives a damn about the DNC or RNC>

    I'm sure he determines the next president of Burundi and Djibouti with as much ambition as he does the United States. Or is it that you think he gives preferential treatment to the US just because we pay lip services to Israel and close up shop on Sundays? Being a powerful Christian nation sure helped the Romans as they were busy converting the world. But I bet they fell to the pagan hordes because of what they did at the end of the first century.

    The things of God make no sense to anyone at 1st. Their spiritually discerned. The wonderful woman who prayed ultimately, and led me to the Lord, asked me to read a pocket KJV New Testament she bought me. I did so 3 times over, not realizing that "like everything in life", true faith comes by hearing and hearing. I was planting the seed of Gods Word, into my heart, and received Him and have served him 30 years come Oct. 20th. *(It's funny at first when you read about "Jesus walking on the water" or "turning water into wine", because your thinking in your mind, this is "God's stuff", and yet the apostle Peter stepped out of the boat and walked up to Jesus when He bid "Come!" So I just acted as if it were all real, stop denying with my mind and believed it in my heart by faith and prayed, "God if you truly are real prove yourself to me, He did!")

    So you ignore what's right in front of your face -- Democrats removing God from the platform and then BOOING LOUDLY when He's put back in -- in favor of a cherry-picked list of sex crimes? You even ignore your fellow Democrat saying "We had to put all that god crap in for the religious halfwits."

    By the way, those type of perverse deviates are going to be found from all walks of life and political backgrounds, but there is a difference in how the two major political parties deal with such people. The Republican Party tends to throw such people off the party bus and even at times run them over. The Democratic Party seems to view such actions at times as steps to higher office, or say that it is a personal matter. Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy are the current heroes of the Democrat Party (Ted may be Dead, but did you think Necro-American support for the Dem Party ended with just voting?) and they've not only sexually abused women, but Ted drowned one.
