    Default Off topic - USA elections

    Has anyone else seen the video that the Gingrich folks made about
    Romney? Payback is a bitch.

    Have you watched it? It's brutal. Here's what I wrote on my Facebook
    page:
    "Mitt could cause a religious revival in America. He's so evil that he
    could almost convince a hardcore Atheist like myself to believe in the
    existence of Satan." What an evil dude.

    Mitt Romney is an evil man. A "smiling jerk" as a friend of mine said
    years ago. I think the Bible says something about when Satan comes you
    will not recognize him as Satan. Well of course not! No one would
    follow Satan knowing he was Satan! DUH! So of course he's gonna come
    appearing as someone who wants to be your best friend. Good looking
    and well dressed and mannered of course! The perfect con man.

    Mitt fits the bill so perfectly, it's amazing!!

    Obama seems destined to win a re-election to me. The republicans just can't
    seem to find any good candidates so most ppl will just vote to keep things
    the same.

    Mostly, I'm a republican. I would like to see Obama replaced. He just
    seems like a do nothing president like Carter was. I don't want Mitt Romney
    though....he won't win. I like Newt myself but too many people seem to hate
    him. Ron Paul? Well, at least he'll get my brother's vote.

    Personally, I'd like to see Daniel Lawrence Whitney run and win the
    presidency. Time for change here in the US!

    The president never does much. It's all his advisors, big business,
    etc. This goes for every president.

    I had hoped for a second FDR. What we got was a second Bill Clinton.

    There's a reasonable candidate who is totally anti-reproductive choice
    and totally for tax cuts for the rich, and screw working people (the
    two central Republican values), but he doesn't have kooky enough views
    on climate change and civil unions and immigration to satisfy the
    Limbaugh and Beck listening GOP base, and that's Huntsman.

    Your brother is an idiot, and probably a drug addled idiot, an Ayn
    Rand book in one hand and a bong in the other.

    Please explain why you would prefer "Fidel" to Obama. That makes
    little sense.
    Are you saying that you would rather have an extreme Leftists than a
    moderate?

    >

    I am a student of Theology. I work at a church. I am a *very*
    ecumenical Atheist, but I thoroughly disbelieve in the existence of a
    god, hence I am a hardcore Atheist, and not the least bit agnostic.
    Most of the people whom I love and respect are Christians. I do not
    evangelize Atheism because I think that Theism works well for most of
    the believers in liberal Christianity and Judaism, and undermining a
    person's faith in their god is not like revealing that Santa or the
    Tooth Fairy is a fiction. Marx wrote that religion was the opiate of
    the people, but that was as much a critique of the function of the
    churches in Germany at that time, as a rejection of the value of
    spirituality. He also wrote that the worst thing that Capitalism did
    was to alienate people from spirituality. Quite a statement from an
    Atheist, and one that I totally agree with. So much of the
    progressive change in America resulted from theistic spirituality. In
    the modern USA culture, I contend that it is sports, more than
    anything else, that is the opium of the people.
    What is more disturbing is the *unholy* alliance of the Calvinist
    predestination mindset with the atheistic ideology of Ayn Rand, who
    posited that selfishness is the highest virtue. That is scary ****,
    and both Romney and Ron Paul have totally bought into it in their own
    ways. The other GOP candidates have also done so, though to a lesser
    extent. I hope that answers your question.

    He won the Nobel prize for being black (even tho' there's probably a
    billion people in the world blacker than he is) So you have to give him
    a break -- he's our first affirmative action president. (You didn't
    really expect that to go well, did you?)

    The Republicans seem to be trying to serve up their *weakest* candidate.
    What's that all about? Are they afraid someone will call them "racist"
    if they put up a good fight?

    The pH scale goes from 0-14. There is no -7.

    What caused the economic collapse was the top few percent looting
    everyone else. When Clinton was president, we had a budget surplus.
    The Bush tax cuts were a giveaway to the rich, and have resulted in
    the widest gap between the super rich and everyone else since the
    1920s. If the Republicans hadn't blocked everything they possibly
    could, we'd be recovering much faster. They SAID that their priority
    was making Obama a one term president, when their top priority SHOULD
    HAVE BEEN economic recovery. The GOP has been willing to screw
    millions of working Americans, just so they can screw Obama. Polly,
    you are either rich, or REALLY stupid. I'd bet on the stupid.
