An unwillingness to govern for the common good.

November 22, 2011

I have said before, and I’ll say it again: One need not fear our country’s being under a theocracy of Islamic law. What we need to be vigilant for is the prospect of a Christian theocracy. Read what GOP candidates were talking about the other day in Iowa.

This is the kind of talk that has kept me away from voting Republican for the past several years. But it does fit right in with their platform of selfish indifference and an unwillingness to govern for the common good.

Silly me

So in last evening’s debate, Herman Cain and Michelle Bachmann both would favor reinstating waterboarding.  Christian beliefs? Disregard for others? I didn’t think there could be any more flaws in their characters. Silly me.

Reports continue to liken being waterboarded to simulated drowning. I continue to object. The person is drowning and will die if the process goes uninterrupted.

So far, the two Mormons make sense

For those who missed Monday night’s Republican debate, here it is:

  • Reduce spending
  • Cut taxes
  • Reduce regulation

For those  who missed the first Republican debate:

  • Reduce spending
  • Cut taxes
  • Reduce regulation

For those who will miss the next Republican debate:

  • guess what?

So far, the two Mormons make sense. Everyone else plays to the audience and is missing something along the lines of competency.

Also, check the body language to see who has the confidence to move forward. Romney and Huntsman look at who is talking. Bachmann looks as though the guy who’s talking just ran over her dog, seething with no eye contact whatsoever.

If Obama goes belly up, the guy with the smirk, W redux, had better not be the one.  Ye gods and little fishes, once was enough, and it will take generations to recover from that one without fueling the fire again.
