As a pledge, it's one sentence too long. After I pledge allegience to the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, what else is there to say?
Keith, you asked: "Typical liberals. How do they get in power?!?!" Because they see today's problems in simplistic, direct terms and they offer hope. I am as conservative as anyone you can find. But I've been one long enough to know that the moral and idealogical high ground without practical solutions does not feed people or put them to work TODAY! When you have to fix something around your house in a hurry e.g. leaking roof, broken window, etc. do you reach for the perfect solution or do you git'er done? Until enough of us fit practical, immediate solutions, perhaps short term, to our beliefs, and actually work to effect long term solutions, the "expediters" will alway win. A jobless man wants to feed his family TODAY!!!!! And a person with a health problem wants the medical solution regardless of what idealogical label is on the medicine bottle.
Sad,sad,sad. For whatever reasons you lke Sara Palin. Don't lose site of the fact that an elected official must act. In high office, that person must be able to analyze complex problems and then create policies and actions to solve them. In your heart of hearts, you know Palin cannot do this. it's great to have a champion for your ideals, but what good is a champion who can only espouse abstract slogans with no idea of how to implement what they stand for. This comment is not directed at Sara Palin exclusively. it applies to all the headline-grabbing preachers who opportunistically seize on the flavor of the day and try to capitalize on it
Re: “Lindsey goes left, DeMint goes right”
What a pity. Graham continues to grow while DeMint has settled on cultivating an ever shrinking base grounded in negativity and narrow-mindedness. For example, Graham recognizes the only people truly benefiting from the current health care system are the insurance industry and drug companies. DeMint is completely ignoring the health care problems and is focused on politics. He has yet to acknowledge the system is broken. I think he is now the poster boy for the confused thinking within the GOP. Fortunately, as usual, clearer thinking Republicans are starting to step forward. While the DeMints are creating sensational headlines, the real conservatives are busy trying to make things work.
