Long before the President arrived in Charlotte, his image was everywhere at the Democratic National Convention.

 As a conservative, I am not so sure that Romney is the lesser of two evils, at least when it comes to the future of the Republican party.   If we persist in ignoring our base composed of conservatives, christians and catholics we will continue to lose.   Lincoln said you cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.  Sacrificing conservative principles in an attempt to appeal to moderates simply is not electorally pragmatic for a Republican victory.  If true conservatives want to send a message to the GOP leadership they should vote for Obama.  If they cannot stomach voting for someone to the left of center, then they should consider voting for Independent candidate Gary Johnson.  Nothing will change unless we send a message.

This iconography of Obama is attempting to make the president into a pop culture hero.  What he's done to deserve this, I have no idea, but it is a good way to sell him. With all media in love with this guy, it's enough to make you question democracy.  Maybe if Obama chips a tooth, Romney might have a better chance.  That might seem far fetched but another four years of this Letterman star, produces nausea.  We know that the county's in great shape when a half white, half black president advocates marriage between two men and two woman.  Why did we ever let this man in?  Watergate seems pale.

I no longer support Obama, his evolution opened my eyes to who he actually is.    

Just because a bad behavior isn't illegal doesn't make it good or right behavior.  

Now that govt has legalized all sorts of things that were once bad and illegal , they foolishly continue to slide down the slippery slope right into the pit of stupidity. 

Things that are bad should be illegal, or at least shameful but certainly not codified, adopted, legalized, embraced, or otherwise favored. 

Any theist who forgives a sinner that doesn't turn from his wicked ways is allowing wickedness to thrive. 

If a murderer told you he was a murderer wanted to remain a murderer but also wanted to be your pastor would you allow it? 

If a thief told you she was a thief wanted to remain a thief but also wanted to be your banker would you allow it? 

Regardless of the sin, wrong,  evil, or bad thing the point is you only forgive the sinner recognizes the wrong as a wrong and willingly wants to turn away from the wrong way. 

If the sinner embraces wickedness our society should do what it can to help, heal, and otherwise make that person right with society not more wrong by celebrating the wrong. . 

Morality and legality don't always cross paths but IMO they should be sharing the same track.

HOPE is back in the American economic outlook: The U.S. Gallup Economic Confidence Index surged to -18 for the week ending Sept. 9 -- an 11-point jump from the previous week, and near the highest point reached since Gallup Daily tracking began in January 2008.

Whichever presidential candidate wins the election, he will have to spend trillions of dollars to jump start the American economy. Only then will companies start hiring in huge numbers. Otherwise, companies will only hire talented and skilled people. As per Obama, the economy will jump-start only when people of all skills and abilities are hired. Historically, some economy refuses to budge unless there is intervention in the way of exgtra - generous spending on the part of government. In 2008, President Obama tried to spend a large amount of money just after winning the last elections, in order to hire millions of Americans. His plan was turned by law makers both on Congress and the Senate.

Are you intellectually slow? Is English your second, third or fourth language?

Are you a bitter, ignorant racist or ALL o the ABOVE?  Get some help because there are MILLIONS  of people  in this world/country YOU describe as "monkey". YOU must live a miserable life. 

The only way "USA's Quality is  going down" is for "people" like YOU to increase in number.
