Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Bill Press

Is he still alive? I haven't heard anything about him since CNN fired him. Or did he quit?

Ok, since it's a Saturday, and I have a bachelor party to attend at Woodstock's house, I am going to keep it short. Thankfully, Chud gave me an outline to attack.

"yeah, her faith informs her decisions. as far as i know that goes for about 90% of all public servants that have a faith."

Show me the careers of a few other notable creationist public figures, and what they did for their constituents, and maybe we will have something to talk about. Difficulty: after 1950.

"fact: she ran her state out of debt and into a surplus."

You mean she did what was expected of her? Why is this something to be lauded?

"fact: she took that surplus and gave it back to the people in a profit share check."

See above.

"fact: she shrank the size and scope of the government."

See above.

"fact: a partisan panel was put together to try to hurt her chances at the white house by coming up with this trooper scandal."

They really are wasting their time, aren't they? The American people looked in to Palin's belief system, and you know what they saw? Horror. www.fivethirtyeight.com

"fact: she's pro life. move along. i'm pro choice. i'm also smart enough to know that the prez or vp cannot overturn supreme court precedent. besides in the 35 years since it has been ruled on we have had only 12 years of democrat presidents. so... it probably would have been overturned by now. just sayin."

I have blue eyes. Are we done sharing irrelevancies?

you just don't get it. the dems every election try to throw religion into the mix. they know it scares the base. her religion is irrelevent. just like obama's faux christianity is irrelevent. as far you saying:"You mean she did what was expected of her? Why is this something to be lauded?" and then "See above." after everything, these are not to be expected. these are not things polititions actually do. these are things that conservatives campaign on and liberals rally against. rarely do they actually happen. Palin did it right. she held office, and did right by her people. obama... he's a junior senator who "voted against the war"... except he was in the illinois legislature at the time and i'm pretty sure they have no war declaring ability. as far as giving me an obama website to go and read. sorry bro, that shit's too muddled in socialist drek for me to muddle through.

dems hate palin because she is the anti socialist. she shrank government. ran it out debt. and worst of all... GAVE MONEY BACK TO THE PEOPLE WHEN THEY HAD TOO MUCH.

obama and the rest of the socialist party don't understand economics as a whole and don't grasp the mess we're in. they think they can print money to get out of it. to raise taxes and cut tax breaks. see how that fared for the depression? yeah... not so well. now, almost 60 some years later, we're still picking up the pieces of a democrat mess.

you may be scared by palin's religion. but i'm more scared of of an obama white house, and a filibuster proof pelosi house, and reid senate. unchecked socialism. just like the 30's. how'd that work out for us so far?

all i'm saying is don't throw away your vote trying to bring up a third party this election. we can't afford it.
