    I was at dunken donuts a few weeks ago and i was overhearing a conversation between a girl and guy, mid 30s, and they were talking about some tv show, and the discussion of one of the characters, and the girl to the guy said “no offence, but i think she is….(whatever she said about the character)” and the tone was in a tone of I think you might get offended so i think i should preface what i am about to say with “No offence”…..I couldnt help but shake my head and think “Is this what the world has come to?, have we become a people so easily offended that we feel we must talk about fictional characters in a way……anyways you get my point….SIGH

    Not who I want, but i would bet a million he gets the nod. Hes the establishment guy with the tea party image….many will be fooled by him. The establishment will push him if jeb fails to attract. “He is the guy we can all agree on!!!” I can hear it now….

    Flags, symbols, idols….I don’t think Jesus wanted a flag…So those that don’t know this flag are not Christian? I dont know this flag…i think i have seen it a time or two, but never looked into its meaning….Honestly I think Jesus would be pretty ashamed at where Christianity has come….and not just because of the flag…

    There is something that can be mistaken in when i said you will not be locked in a cage or your life taken if you dont follow…I was saying that under the pretense that we lived under the constitution. Of course we can point over seas and say look at what is going on over there…

    WHY do many PROFESS a ‘Love the sinner’ and let god be the judge belief – but then seek to judge and codify that which harms others (who don’t believe its a ‘sin’ of choice)?

    The question is assumed to mean something it doesn’t…If a “sinner” comes to a Christian looking to right himself, he should not be turned away…This is how I see it anyways. This does not mean that you condone a sinner who has no interest in righting himself, and let your children go hang out with them knowing the sinner has no interest in changing…..but my idea of sin is much simpler than what it has become these days with religion. For example I dont believe drinking is a sin. It becomes a sin when you turn to it for comfort, and to get by, because in essence you are putting the drink above God. I dont believe that Words are a sin, but the intention behind them. You can say something in the nicest manner, but if you are intending to harm while appearing good that is where cursing comes from.

    WHY do many PROFESS a ‘respect for ALL life’ position – but then condone or promote something as failed as the death penalty?

    I don’t really condone death by the State (I used to though) for many reasons, but thats another story. but the difference between abortion, and the death penalty (which is what I think you are getting at) in my mind is, in death penalty cases there is a wrong that was committed by the one losing their life, and there is nothing ungodly about consequences for actions.

    WHY do many PROFESS a want for freedom and liberty and limited govt – but then seek to codify their god/religious-based restrictions on everyone else?

    This is not me at all, I have a very strong faith in God, but hold very little stock in religion, although I do think religion is important, because those that are lost and have no one that believes in God can easily find a starting point. But I believe that religion is very elementary and one must grow past it at some point. As for forcing it onto others, I disagree with this tactic, but to ease your mind…Following God is a choice. No one is going to lock you in a cage and take your life away from you if you don’t follow. You may not be trusted or even wanted (if you dont want to be a part) around, but why does this matter? The two ideologies are opposite, and those that dont believe wouldn’t want a religious person around either. Why is it that the religious must be accepting and open to the non religious, but not the other way aro

    I am an individualist, and im sure many conservatives will disagree, but I am a conservative with my own conscience, it doesn’t belong to anyone or group so I don’t speak for all conservatives but I found your questions to be interesting and wanted to answer them how I see it.

    WHY do many conservatives PROFESS a respect for ‘God’s amazing and unique creations’ – but then so many of them condone or are part of their destruction?

    Do you mean by hunting? If so, there is nothing ungodly about it. It clearly states in the Bible that Gods creations are mans resources. To destroy (this is a powerful word but I will use it since you did) does not mean a lack of love, or caring. If I put a suffering dog out of its misery this does not mean I hate the dog, or do not care. This mindset of you wont harm what you love is man made, and dangerous. For example…I will not hurt my friends feeling in order to save them from doing something stupid. Or do you mean destruction of the earth..the whole global warming thing? If so, I personally would say there is no proof, and the question that I want answered in order for me to jump on is, How did the last Ice age melt long before industrialization? And prove to me without a doubt that this is NOT just another cycle the earth is going through, regardless of man.

    you have to realize it was a different time when Jeb was in charge. This was a time when the republicans (the people part of the republicans) loved the establishment types, loved the patriot act….I believe the real waking up of a majority of people happened around the time of our last primaries…I was a die-hard republican at the time. I don’t remember any of Jebs policies good or bad, i was just happy it was him in the seat.

    …..Or expect an “event”, that will make people look back at these words and say…We should start listening to this guy…an event that will put the establishment back on top!!

    If saying things like this becomes trendy…it will be hard for me to believe that the elites within our government did not play a role in some catastrophic event that happens before primaries…Hillary or a RINO on the ballot, that’s all that matters…

    I may or may not have been a vet myself, and I may or may not tout it, because it doesn’t change who I am as a person, it does is cast an image that may lure others into a sense of trust, respect, or likableness, that I may or may not deserve…

  • [2] April 21, 2015 at 10:48am

    I kinda want to call BS on you P2BV, but I dont know you and dont have a problem with the military or vets in general, but your comment is very prideful. I would say you could care less about my life, you got the uniform, the title of vet, and the blind respect from others that comes with it. not to mention chicks love the uniform, and because you wore it you can feel like you are much better than the citizens that you “care so much about” I’m sorry I am an individualist and don’t believe that every vet deserves respect…I believe the content of character is the only sufficient way to gain respect. I respect the purpose of the military as a whole, but every soldier is an individual person with their own conscience…Try humble it works better….

    and when i say we can see it in the comment section here at the blaze i am not casting judgment on the people who comment….I like what most have to say most of the time, but there are times where I am surprised at the reactions. I would say that for the most part the people here are good people, its just that collectivism is so ingrained in us as Americans that we dont even see it

  • April 21, 2015 at 9:47am

    i can come up with a number of reasons, however before i get to them i had thought many times that a mercenary army would be a good thing. but I cant get one started…

    Although I believe that the mercenary army is a good way to go about dealing with it, I also believe, that showing fear, getting angry, and getting all worked up is fuel for their fire. The media attention, and fear is what they want.

    Then there is the lack of trust, and as crazy as it might seem to some, to others it makes perfect sense. maybe this is false flag stuff (real but orchestrated in back rooms, These ISIS guys might really want to be doing these things, but are getting the power and funding to do so secretly) to get the populous all worked up, and hell bent on war and “security”,

    I do also think the fact that they are not white Christians plays a role. We in America are collectivized. We dont stand on principle we stand on image, and symbolism. We hate groups more than we love liberty. We can see this in the comment sections here at the blaze. If someone talks a certain way or dresses a certain way they become “idiots” and we justify why their liberty was taken away…

    Then there is the, I cant confirm this is happening because it is half a world away, and when I look around me I don’t see these things happening.

    A true American Patriot is an individualist, who stands for liberty and against tyranny. It’s not what he/she wears on his hat, what their bumper stickers say, the uniform they wear or anything image based at all…Patriotism lives in the heart…let it be written on your heart, not some doctrine you turn to to condemn others….

  • [7] April 18, 2015 at 11:29pm

    i would say a patriot stands on principle, not symbolism, symbols can be just as deceiving as the letters R and D. They create a blind following. as long as it is my symbol it is okay. Would you stand behind this flag if the country was taken over by socialists, and decided to keep the flag just so the blind followers would hold on to it? sure you might know the true reasoning behind the flag but……….anyways a flag is a flag…..yes I do respect this flag, but this flag is not my country…the same as the temple, is just a temple….a very important one but…tear it down…only you can let it die if you let it die, from within you….symbols don’t hold meaning, they assume the meaning we give them…yes it would be nice to hold onto what it means, but it has become nothing more than a propaganda tool….many people fly the flag just because it is “the patriotic” thing to do, and they have no idea what it actually stood for at one point…

    I know i already said this up there but it is very fitting comment to what rob said:

    It seems to me that people hate collective groups more than they love their liberties….I also agree it is very moronic for them to throw up slave ownership when they were never slaves, but they can/will believe whatever they want….I kinda like my liberty to think how i choose, and i will not give that away just so others can’t…

    Although i agree with her stance, admire her conviction, and totally disagree and find the other side disgusting…. she did deprive someone else of their liberties, and stole their property…If we were ever looking for the meaning of protecting our liberties, and the purpose of police this is a very good example….Im sure a lot of people will disagree with me out of pride, but it really is the truth…

  • April 18, 2015 at 8:13pm

    was it a youtube video? YES…Was that Obama, and the words that came out of his mouth on that video? YES…why yes it was…

    This is how you try to discredit anything that doesn’t come form the “proper source” of propaganda….

    I agree the child services part is the most scary part of this whole thing.
