Garth doesn’t have to agree with my political viewpoint for me to like him.

Truth. We all have good and bad tendencies. Some of us have to avoid alcohol. Some of us have to avoid gambling. Some of us need anger management classes. No one says “He was born with that temper so it’s ok.”
Difference is, tempers affect other people. Someone being gay doesn't. The liberals aren't right to force people to associate with gays, but conservatives come at this from the wrong angle. When people see that not only do you not want to serve cakes, you don't want them getting married or adopting kids or serving in the military, they think "huh, these people aren't just concerned about their freedoms. They're just ass clowns."
Conservatives aren't exactly respectful of the other side either.

If Cruz wins the nomination I’ll gladly vote for him in 11/2016. Currently Paul is my personal favorite but I’m very interested in hearing the debates.
Dr: Paul has his strong points but so did his Dad. What we need to see is just how far the "apple falls from the tree." The junior "branch" of the family has indeed swayed from time to time. Rand Paul is too smart to fall into a minefield of "gotcha questions" and he has the stones to stand-up to the Left. I appreciate that. However, as you posted let's hear the debates.

I think you’re taking the wrong tack here. People are born with all sorts of proclivities. Being born predisposed towards a behavior does not make that behavior right or wrong. For example, there is much evidence that psychopaths are born that way. Does that make it right?
DR: "Born" that way? To me there's a difference between DNA and typical individual choices. I don't want to put you on the spot but if people are "born" that way (or whatever way), please site some factual scientific studies? For example linking DNA to being born with the customary two hands and feet or blue eyes are relevant scientific facts.
However, the Gay lifestyle is hardly a born "proclivity" such as Tiger Woods' golfing prowess. In support of this supposition is his philandering with 16 bimbos as making a clear "choice." There is a difference. Now you know. You're welcome.

From what I’ve read about his record, other than education and immigration he was a conservative governor. If you have evidence to the contrary I’d be interested in hearing about it. My biggest worry about Jeb is that he’ll lose the presidential election because of his last name.

Behind closed doors they will agree and sign. In public they will claim victory, that they got everything they wanted and will not have to comply with any inspections. And in reality they will never let inspectors in anywhere they don’t want them. This will make them look strong locally and buy them months in which to do whatever they want with the international communityc. Anyone paying attention recognizes this as standard operating procedure.

The dem’s story never changes:
They’re playing politics! Unless you can prove they aren’t and then….
They’re being obstructionists! Unless you can prove they aren’t and then…
They’re being racists! Unless you can prove they aren’t and then…
They’re being sexists! Unless you can prove they aren’t and then…
Instead of dealing with the issue they attack the integrity of their opponents.
If they weren’t choosing Iran over Israel in this instance I’d be laughing.
If you wondered “How much more damage could a lame duck president possibly do in his last two years?” then you’re getting a glimpse.
DR; Hope the Republicans get some good mileage on campaign videos about these over used , under truth Democrat allegations .

Paul is currently my personal favorite but I don’t think you can label Rubio as a leftist or “establishment” without supporting evidence. It only makes you look biased.
 April 13, 2015 at 1:15pm
The American Conservative Union gives Rubio a lifetime score of 98.67. Heritage action scorecard gives him 4 of 4. He’s walked back his former position on immigration so… why exactly are you labeling him a liberal?

I’m torn. If we keep voting for what they give us we can avoid the worst choice near term, but if we’d all bond together and vote for a third party…. Yes, we would forfeit some presidential elections initially but long term I think we’d be far better off IF WE SUCCEEDED in bringing in a third party. The two party system only facilitates the concentration of power into the hands of a very few.
IMO... think long term. Victories in short-term battles are nice, but not at the expense of the long-term objective.
Ever read the book "Applied Economics: Thinking Beyond Stage One"? If not, I highly recommend it. It's an excellent book that lays out exactly what you're talking about from different angles.
To get a TRUE Conservative in the Whitehouse, we have to continue to get them elected to Congress. It's not yet time for a REAL Conservative in the Whitehouse. We have to build to that. This is why for President, we have to take what they give us or hand it to the Democrats again. To say it would be the same thing is imbecilic.

Key FOB transmission power is very small. It doesn’t take much EM noise at the right frequency (around 315 MHz) to disable them.

I would be ecstatic to vote for either of these gentlemen!

I will give Cruz a chance but at this point I strongly prefer others (which I hope will be running).

I read a few of Selk’s articles and it’s obvious he’s not a fan of the mayor or her statements regarding sharia law. So I think it’s very likely he’s planning a hit piece.

Dem’s won’t give republicans something they want so republicans block something they want. It’s called partisan politics. And, of course, we get one of the standard dem responses: play the race/gender card! These people have no integrity.
In 2010 Obama said to the GOP "They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back." Durbin didn't have a problem with that concept in 2010. Now it's the Dems turn to sit in the back.

“I am the only one who can make America truly great again!” – Trump
I don’t think many people would agree with this. So even if he believes it, I think saying it only makes him appear egotistical.

1- I think the golden rule clearly applies to slavery. No one wants to be a slave. Also, it’s pointless to discuss the topic about women serving because even if I concede the point for this discussion, you’re underlying logic is that I’m sinning – therefore it’s ok for others to sin. The truth is we’re all sinners and it’s not ok. We should be striving to hit the mark, not striving to move the standard.
2- Did you read what I wrote at all? We’re not under the law, the old testament is there to learn about God’s character, likes and dislikes, His overall plan, etc. Your inability to grasp my meaning either means you aren’t taking to time to really think about what I’m writing or you’re a troll – either way I think the value of continuing (if you even read this) is questionable.
3- If you believe the bible then you believe the epistles are inspired by God and therefore what is in them reflects God’s opinion on those matters (i.e. Christ’s opinion). So a bible believer will state that God (i.e. Christ) was very clear on the issue (1 Cor. 6:9). If you’re not a bible believer then you think Christ was a just a man and conclude that the rest of the New Testament may or may not reflect His opinions. I’m in the former camp. From what you’re saying, I’m guessing you’re in the latter. We’ll have to agree to disagree.

There are a lot of churches wrestling with this issue. The bible is pretty clear on this subject so many churches choosing to allow LGBT relationships make statements like “We have to quit relying on letters written 2,000 years ago.” It’s very reminiscent of how the democrats refer to the constitution as a 200 year old out of date piece of paper. Note that I’m not in any way suggesting the constitution and the bible are equivalent, but it’s human nature to denigrate that which we don’t agree with.
My opinion is that if you want to throw out the bible and make up your own rules at least be honest enough to give your new religion a different name.
