    Illegal, invading, intruders.

    The way I resolved this question in my mind is this. Every nation since creation has had and needed a military force. If a nation tried to go without one they would be quickly overrun and destroyed. Now one could simplistically say that Jesus doesn’t want his followers to kill and so they shouldn’t be soldiers. So, using that logic only the unsaved and unjust would be left to defend the nation. They would die to save the families and possessions of the Christians who object to violence.

    So those who are not followers of Jesus would be expected have be more selfless than the supposedly unselfish followers of Christ. I have an ethical problem with this and so as a Christian I would have no problem in taking up arms to do my part to defend my nation or my family from enemies.

    Cruz, Rubio, and Jindal were born US citizens. In light of the fact that Obama had a Kenyan father but was still allowed to be president all three of the Republicans would also be eligible.

    Romney would be a RINO president. Given his sponsorship of RomneyCare its likely he won’t champion the removal of Obamacare. Romney is also apparently a believer in AGW so the economy-crushing EPA regulations will stay in place and be furthered. This will put a permanent drag on the economy. Given Romney’s Massachusetts background and his “compassionate” nature its unlikely he will pare back entitlements at all.

    I voted for the Romney in 2012 but if we get another RINO on the ballot in 2016 I will contribute $0 to the GOP and my vote will be a write-in for Ted Cruz. No more compromise votes for me!

    I don’t believe Hillary can make herself likable. That’s her Achilles heel. Her husband will turn on the charm and stump for his wife but ultimately she has to stand on her own. She’s not as inevitable as people think.

    The two party system that we have is an inevitable outgrowth of a winner take all system. Such a system encourages large parties and there is always an opposition so two major parties is the most likely outcome. Third, fourth, etc parties are more viable in Parliamentary systems where governing coalitions are formed in the legislature after the general election. Given what transpires in European nations that have these systems I can’t recommend it for us.

    I really hate guys like this. He is living at the pinnacle of human wealth and he lectures the people who are getting hammered by all the government crap that’s getting handed out. Just like Al Gore, he expects the masses to satisfy themselves with less while he gorges himself upon the fatted calf.

    Why not lecture government to get off our backs? He’s another utopian liberal who thinks he’s smart enough to reorder all our lives. To Hades with him!

    You have to do something quite heinous to get the death penalty in the US these days, usually it involves something worse than a run of the mill murder. The murderer in that case has destroyed the only life their victims will ever have and taken every civil right away from them. The victims often have suffered horribly as they died.

    What’s the appropriate penalty? If you believe the punishment should fit the crime then the only punishment that comes close is to execute the convicted offender. Since death is usually somewhat painful for everyone else, it doesn’t bother me if the condemned feels discomfort on his way out. I believe it to be a completely moral position and am willing to stand before God and be judged by it.

    They shouldn’t be so worried about inflicting pain. The criminals sure weren’t when they committed their crime. Just pick a method that gets it over with quickly.

    If I’d been involved in something like that as a college student my folks would have been livid all right, at me.

    The hotels should press criminal charges and sue students along with the fraternities. Let those involved get a good dose of accountability.

    I made a mistake on an IRS form about 25 years ago and a letter is exactly what I got, along with an envelope addressed to the IRS for me to put my check in. The letter was detailed and told me exactly how I had erred. I verified it against my copy of the form and sent them a check. No phone contact at all.

    Nope. I carry and if I happened to glimpse someone’s properly holstered concealed firearm I will assume they are carrying legally. If I thought I spotted a bad guy I’d talk to store security or call the cops on my cell. No heroics here and none for the vast majority of thinking individuals.

    This is what happens when someone confuses themselves with a TV hero.

    Well this will be interesting. My own personal prediction is that Beck won’t get anywhere with this. Francis has his reasons for the stances he takes and if he believes he has a religious purpose he will not listen to Beck. I’d ditch the word Capitalism anyway. It sounds like a system that revolves around money which is a position that won’t play well in religious circles. The correct term is free enterprise because that is what we really want, the freedom to buy and sell as we wish with minimal interference from government.

    Lookin’ baaaaadd-azzz.

    I just went to see American Sniper. Excellent movie, I left feeling thankful that we have men like Chris Kyle fighting on our side. Michael Moore is nothing but a slug who has no courage of his own but somehow feels entitled to call the brave out as cowards.

    We should call him by his real name – Maruse Heath. Its not nearly as grandiose as Field Marshal Shabazz.

    Chesimard was convicted on state charges that Obama has no authority to pardon. Even his pen and phone can’t fix those up.

    I don’t know why anyone would want to go there. The Caribbean has many great vacation spots full of free enterprise activities for tourists. Whole islands just waiting to please the tourist and entice us to spend our money there. In contrast there’s Commie Cuba with none of that and probably restrictions on where the tourists can go so they don’t give the locals any ideas about freedom.

    This just bolsters my negative stereotype of the auto sales industry. I really hate buying a car because the blood-sucking salesmen make it a chore with their push, push, push attitude.

    JesusIsLoveExceptWhenItComestomyHOA. I’ll accept your comment as satire because if it’s not then you are the epitome of every hatred directed at pointy-headed HOA rulemakers.
