Some Things I've Noticed

The Republicans seem to be really hostile this year.

The Republicans seem to be twisting a lot of words around.

The Republicans seem to be talking a lot about experience.

Then they pick a VP Candidate who was a city council member, and mayor in a town of about 7,000; then became Governor of a state with a population less than 700,000.

The Republican VP Candidate has no Washington experience.

For a party who has been ragging on Obama for a lack of "experience" you would think they would choose someone who was...

Maybe its just me but being the governor of the smallest state in the union dosen't equal Presidential status experience.

But like I said maybe its just me...

That's why she is running for Vice President. Stinks when your VP has more experience than you do. Could make for a shaky situation.

I think the VP should be able to take over on day one should the President not be able to go on. Considering McCain is 7,000 years old that is even more important.

Governor Palin is the MOST Christian candidate that has ran in the last 50 years, and for some extremely strange reason all we hear about is a FAKE lack of experience. Washington is THE second worst place to ever get what is called experience.(The worst being the crime and corruption of Chicogo's Gangland) Admit that you are a flaming liberal. That some one else should pay all your bills so that you never have to work when Jerry Springer is on. Admit most of all that human life is not sacred to you, and you would use your vote to get $10 Dollars you didn't earn rather than save ONE MILLION unborn from the abortion mills that Obama stands so valiently to protect. The only thing he has ever stood up for! Admit most of all that if Christ had a vote He would stand for Life above all. Those of us that know Him know this! Judges are the issue of the day and Governor Palin was better Qualified yesterday than Obamanation will be in Fifty years. Same goes for McCain he actually loves and has defended this nation. Finally Obama certainly is not the AntiChrist, he is however the biggest right hand that Satan has hand picked in the last 225 years. Chose whose side your on, Life(God's) or death (Obamanation)

Wow... "Admit most of all that if Christ had a vote He would stand for Life above all."

I think Jesus would realize that Roe V. Wade is never going to get over turned, and go from there. There are perfectly good reasons for abortion. As birth control it is a disgrace. However, to Vote strictly on this issue is ridiculous. Jesus cares just as moch about the poor, suffering, hurt, sick, and otherwise.

Not to mention, We have lost 72,000 none civilians since the WOT started, and over 1 million civilians. That would be high on Jesus' List as well.

If you want to talk about his further feel free to email me. However, i'm NOT going to defend myself against someone who doesn't have the courage to post without anonymity.

You are deceived. Stop serving Michael Moore and believing his false numbers. Good luck with that eternity thing.

Ryan said...

:)Actually, Alaska is the largest state in the Union but has only a population of 678,478, which ranks 48th. It is just above North Dakota and Vermont on the state population list. In all US states, the governor is the chief executive of the state and runs the executive branch of the government. He/She is the commander-in-chief of the military and is responsible for managing the state budget. Before you begin to belittle the experience of Sarah Palin you might check into what it takes to run a state of nearly 700,000 people. Also, when it comes to McCain's age I wouldn't worry too much, Ronald Reagan turned 70years old his first year in office. He served two terms and was almost 80 years old when his second term ended. Come on man, even Democrats wish they were as cool as Ronald Reagan. Age doesn't matter. What matters is who is going to make our country safe, and better. I would like to elect someone who is willing to get us off of our dependency on foreign oil. I DO believe that Christians have to stand up for something. I don't believe that Jesus would "realize that Roe V. Wade is never going to get over turned" because Jesus knows that "all things are possible through HIM" I do agree that there are a ton of social injustices in the world and Christians should fight to stop them all, but to give up on stopping murder doesn't make sense to me. Why would we say "sorry unborn children even WE (Christian's) give up on you." We are all they have. We have to be their voice. Just like we have to the voice for the widows, the orphans, the hungry, the thirsty, the poor. I also believe that in the time that we live in national security should be at the top of this list. The last thing we need to do is downsize our military when Vladimir Putin is claiming he will reclaim all that was Russia's. Could that include Alaska? Just a thought. love you Ryan

IM glad so many people are chirping in here. I have to first defend my facts on Alaska being the smallest state. Im not sure where I got my numbers, it was either Wikipedia, a online dictionary, or Alaska.gov. I cant remember. As for her worthiness Im not sure im sold that she has what it take.

As for the abortion issue, I will me posting my comprehensive thoughs here in a few hours. I think it is important for you all to understand what my thoughts are and why I came to think the way I do. Hopefully then you will see im not strictly pro choice, But I have modified my thoughts from that of traditional Christianity because theirs arent working..

Thats enough for now I will post in few.

Why do we followers of Jesus pretend that because someone says their 'Christian' that they are then the most qualified to lead. I don't give a crap if Palin is a Christian, we might not even agree on what the definition of the word means, let alone that a profession of faith can qualify her for the most powerful position in the world (potentially, McCain is quite old).

I just posted about this, but I'm tired of everyone who pretends that all this political stuff can be summed up in easy answers - you know, vote this way, support this guy, be in this party. I follow Jesus which means at a minimum, I'm by-partisan. No party represents the Way of Jesus and no one person, based on a profession of faith is qualified to lead our nation.

And to boot - this is America, not a Christian nation, not representative of my faith and not my salvation. Would we really want a 'Christian' government? and all the corruption of power and greed that would further separate the Way of Jesus from people who need to meet Him? I vote no.

I bet 'anonymous' is a Caucasian - talk to African-American's about politics and they won't understand how you couldn't vote Democrat. So Mr. Anonymous - stop pretending that it's that easy. Most Republicans are fiscal voters anyway, worried more about their pocket book than helping others. Admit you are being judgmental and over-simplifying the issues and stop pretending that the Republican party represents our faith. It isn't that black and white, Obama and McCain don't represent the right-side and the wrong-side. You can continue thinking that abortion is the most important political issue, but it isn't. If our country doesn't fix it's foreign policy issues and our energy crisis and revive our economy and level our debt - abortion and same-sex marriage will be the least of our worries. Plus, the way you talk is all about how right you are and how wrong everyone else is - hardly the way people who know Jesus best should act. I didn't see Jesus acting the way you are with prostitutes, Samaritan women or tax collectors. I did however, see him talk that way to the religiously-always-right-and-judging-others people of his time. And lastly, admit that if Jesus had a vote, he probably wouldn't exercise the right. He had zero political interest - his concern was being the change that was needed to save humanity - not hiding behind a political party and calling that his duty.

Jesus - help us and help people who think like 'anonymous' - we need your help in this crazy time and we need to be reminded that you called us to Love God and Love People (even gay, liberal ones) and to be Peacemakers.

Kevin Davis said...

O' yeah!

Ryan - admit you like boys!)

Kevin Davis said...

Continuing to be entertained by this - what does 'MOST Christian' even mean?

Ryan said...

Thanks for your input Kevin!

As for Mr. A goes. Im sure He still thinks that the country was strictly founded on Judeo Christian values. Its not the case if you were wondering... It is simply based on religious freedom.

The thing that is still getting to me is the fact that the uber conservative Christians think that if you are not a republican your salvation is on the line... We need to move beyond thinking that causes us to only vote based on abortion and Gay rights.

Though I have opinion on both they are not the most important thing on my list. Just as Kevin said if we do not address our debt, energy issues, and this war we are going to be in big trouble very soon.

Furthermore, Mr. A, when you man up (or women) and stop posting with anonymity your opinion will become valid.

Lastly, I am not chastising you for your opinions you are welcome to them. However, when you are like your ways is the only way. It is most likely not the right one.

I am very open to dialogue on these issues. We will never solve them if they are not talked about.

Lastly, I do love boys. So now that makes me a flaming liberal, Micheal Moore loving, hellboud, murdering, lazy, closet homosexual...

Oh, also now that I know my salvation is based on how I vote I will just write in Huckabee...
