If he gets the Republican nomination will you support him as president?

The worst part? They don’t have to swing it, change it, lie about it. They just have to ignore it. Ask the next 10 strangers you see who Lois Lerner is and start counting sheep.

“Republicans made numerous efforts to stop the issue from coming to this. They have argued – and are still arguing – that the FCC shouldn’t get to decide how to regulate the Internet. That power, they say, is one that should be granted by Congress.”
So, for those that choose not to waste their vote on a third party, here we find the Republicans are not interested in maintaining freedom, but taking issue that they themselves cant seize the power.
The ground around the tree of liberty is parched.

I think someone should ask Obama what kind of reception he would find fitting for a great leader such as himself when he visits other countries. We could then arrange it for Netanyahu. Perhaps we will someday be so fortunate as to see our illustrious leader meet the same fate as Haman.

We are dealing with people that think they own the rain that falls from the sky. No amount of writing will change their behavior. I want my own country.

Just wait until the happy comfortable sheep wake up.
Maybe Brian Williams will shout the truth from the rooftops since his credibility is so high.

I’m not sure what your talking about, the tens of millions of dollars of tax revenue brought in like in Colorado?
The Billions spent every year on the “war on drugs” while drug use increases?
Explain your “negative effects” please.

While I applaud the effort I am still frustrated at the fact we as Americans accept the government saying they have the authority to regulate a plant. How would we respond if they did this with tomatoes. “Sorry ma’am, your going to jail because you were growing tomatoes in your back yard without a license. It’s off to prison with you!”
Placate the sheep, but they remain sheep. Those of us who strive for real freedom, regardless of their view on marijuana, understand this to be only a tiny step in the right direction. No man or group of men should be able to tell you what to do, what to eat, what to wear or how to behave as long as those actions do not violate the rights of others.
Well, actually, the government does purport to have that authority with respect to tomatoes--see Wickard v. Filburn (it dealt with wheat grown on one's property for personal use, but the principle would presumably apply to tomatoes as well).
And yes, indeed we should not recognize the authority of the government to interfere with American's pursuit of their subsistence when the government itself fails to protect their entitlement to their subsistence. Whether we call it the government, or any other label, the power to make collectively binding rules should be used to benefit the quality of human life and to secure human's access to the means of subsistence, not the opposite. What value is it otherwise?

1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”
2 “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
3 “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
4 “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
5 “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
6 “Islam has always been part of America”
7 “We will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”
8 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
9 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
10 “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”
11 “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
12 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”
13 “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”
14 “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
Let me respond with comments by President Bush that prove he was a muslim as well: In the President’s Words: Respecting Islam
The United States is a nation dedicated to religious tolerance and freedom, and President Bush has acted to ensure that the world's Muslims know that America appreciates and celebrates the traditions of Islam.
"Here in the United States our Muslim citizens are making many contributions in business, science and law, medicine and education, and in other fields. Muslim members of our Armed Forces and of my administration are serving their fellow Americans with distinction, upholding our nation's ideals of liberty and justice in a world at peace."
Remarks by the President on Eid Al-Fitr
The Islamic Center of Washington, D.C.
December 5, 2002
"Over the past month, Muslims have fasted, taking no food or water during daylight hours, in order to refocus their minds on faith and redirect their hearts to charity. Muslims worldwide have stretched out a hand of mercy to those in need. Charity tables at which the poor can break their fast line the streets of cities and towns. And gifts of food and clothing and money are distributed to ensure that all share in God's abundance. Muslims often invite members of other families to their evening iftar meals, demonstrating a spirit of tolerance."
For the complete list:
Not saying it doesn't hurt to read that, but none of those statements are personal and seemingly heartfelt the way O's are.
Once upon a time, I respected Islam, too. It's historic fact that much of "modern" mathematics originated in the muslim world. It's historic fact that while Europeans were living in log and thatch hovels, muslims were designing some of the most beautiful architecture in the world. It's historic fact that while Leonardo DaVinci was dissecting corpses to determine the physical makeup of the human body, muslims were performing complicated surgeries and saving lives. Those things simply cannot be denied, because there's sufficient historic evidence to prove that they actually happened.
Take my word for it; there's no way in hell that makes me a closet muslim.
Once I came to know the muslim world firsthand, I saw that a once-great society had fallen to become not even a society any longer, but a splintered, scattered race of self-hating, world-envying despotic, bigoted barbarians who want to make the entire rest of the world just like them - barbaric, uncivilized, blood-thirsty, ignorant and subservient to a few religious zealots who'll tell them what to do from the time they wake up, to the time they go to sleep, every single day of their lives.
It's awfully hard - hell, it's practically impossible for any normal human being to completely hate any race of people they've never lived amongst. You can dislike their actions, complain about their politicians, disagree with their religion, but you'll still cling to that old belief in their "basic human goodness". Wrongly.
Bush fell for that "basic human goodness" line. Having never lived among them, he was unable to believe what a complete and serious threat to the rest of the world they represent.
@shanethrapp 1) President Bush was WRONG to say those things. 2) Those comments don't hold a candle to Obama's. Period.
shane...you really think that Bush's comments made from ignorance compare to Obama's slobbering love affair with islam? Okay, let's look to their deeds. Did GW Bush ever arm and fund sworn enemies of the United States so that they were able to take control of countries which, though they were not good forms of government, they were not sworn enemies of the United States?
Did Bush refuse to call islamic terrorists, islamic terrorists and do all that he could to pretend that islam was not the problem?
Yes, he ignorantly said that islam is a peaceful religion........
Never mind. You are not going to get it anyway. You hate Bush no matter what.
Personally, I hate the fact that an anti-American, anti-Christian, lying bag of garbage has usurped the Constitution and obtained the office of president of the United States through fraud.
I Corinthians 5: 9 - 13 "I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people, not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.” TRANSLATION - Obama calls himself a Christian which puts them in the category of "Christian Brother". Judge away. Great piece. BTW, here's some good reading: a link to the full interview that Obama gave to the Chicago Sun Times regarding his "faith". You will find that your article is validated. Most telling part:
Falsani: Who’s Jesus to you?
(He laughs nervously)
OBAMA: Right. Jesus is an historical figure for me, and he’s also a bridge between God and man, in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher. And he’s also a wonderful teacher. I think it’s important for all of us, of whatever faith, to have teachers in the flesh and also teachers in history. BUZZZ - WRONG ANSWER!
 February 23, 2015 at 1:46pm
“I suppose there is at some level a chance that Obama believes sincerely in Christ and His precepts, yet he does all of these things and says all of these things and advances all of these satanic causes in spite of that faith.”

Yeah everything the mainstream media told you about what happened at Sandy Hook is the total truth and anyone who says otherwise believes God is a woman. Pathetic Zach, pathetic.

Respectfully, his answer to the question seemed to lack the directness I’m looking for to call someone courageous. I don’t dislike him as a potential 2016 candidate, I just haven’t had time to learn enough about him to make a determination of his character. I would have liked to hear him respond by commenting on the “presidents” actions and words of the past 6 years that show his disdain for our country and our Constitution.

Our Father shows himself in convenient coincidences everyday. If you learn to be still and listen (something I have to remind myself of often) you see and hear him talking to you every day.
Anyone ever notice how those "coincidences” stop happening during periods of your life when you have stopped praying?
Absolutely, and you have it right on the money. I hold this was God at work.
Don, we’re so grateful that today we can offer up prayers of gratitude for the preservation of the lives of your employees and customers, and that we are not offering up prayers of comfort for the familes of those among them who might have lost their lives at the hands of this young thief.
Our prayers can still be offered up for the family of the now deceased young man, that they might recognize that he alone had chosen this course and it led to his early departure from mortality. It sounds like you’re the kind of man who prays for them and hopes they find some comfort in knowing that you didn’t seek to take his life, only to preserve your own and those around you.
That young man made a series of poor choices that led him to this end. You made a series of wise choices that alowed you to be prepared to preserve lives.
Gotta love good guys with guns who understand the Biblical teaching about when to use them properly.
Amen! Before I was baptized, I prayed out loud in a quiet room with the bible in my lap. I asked Him what I should do. How to even start serving Him. I opened up the scriptures and my eyes landed on the verse about baptism. I KNEW the second I read it, it was a true sign from God. I've never looked back since. God has given me so much in my life.
I've come from nothing. I've come from a broken, distorted and deranged home life and up-bringing. All of which I'd do again in a heartbeat because it taught me who NOT to be. I'm still learning. I'm not perfect. But He has not only blessed me with an entirely new family, but a roof over my head and a way to care for my children. I work my arse off everyday for my girls and husband. I give my heart to people who don't deserve it. But I do it because I KNOW my example will one day make a difference.
Never stop praying.
I love you Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father. Only want to make you proud!!! I hope that you are!
And God Bless this man for standing in the defense of evil. One who would put his life down for another, should be honored in the most highest way possible. God Bless!
PS... there is no such thing as "coincidence". Our Creator is a God of order.
Some people think a miracle is supernatural... I think they are wrong. A miracle can be a change of heart, or a coordinated bit of coincidence toward His end. Miracles like this happen every day. Some people may think it cheapens the idea of a miracle - I think it enriches each day to be aware of the abundance of miracles large and small that surround us. It also makes us aware that it doesn't take supernatural faith or extra-holy something; we can all be part of His miracles.

Oh so that is how it works! So, how many people do we have to burn to get them focused on our economy?
Reward terrorism with cash? I guess I’m too much of a flyover redneck to understand the “nuance” of this grand plan.

Wow, the last applicant only severed four heads...you're hired!

The being in this situation that needs some training and discipline is the victim. He’s damn lucky his dog was a warrior. I had an awaking myself – my perimeter was tested and my dog instinctively did exactly what I needed him to do. I realized I have let my guard down a little and am stepping it back up myself. Watch the video and see the owner respond to the high stress situation by grabbing at his dog (again the only one of God’s creatures doing what the heck he should have been doing). It’s pack behavior, they defend their pack. People who are good pack leaders can raise sweet smoochy-face pit-bulls. I married someone who taught me to run as an alpha wolf. Happy Valentines Day Mrs. Wiseword!
