Evangelicals Consider Third Party Effort For 2008
According to the article, they are not happy with the prospect that Rudy Giuliani, a pro-choice Republican, may be the party's nominee. So, they'd rather split the party which will virtually guarantee a Democratic victory, next year.
Despite the fact that the party will be hurt in the short term, it could be a good thing for the long-term. After all the theocrats get their own party, many people that have left the GOP because they believe in the separation of church and state, will be able to return without fear of the zealots hijacking the party, any further.
There are many people that believe in limited government, free market capitalism, and the right to gun ownership, who not want the influence of any kind of religion infused into the platform. They believe that the freedom of religion should not be infringed on, but they do not want any religion to reign supreme, believing it should be a private affair.
Report: Thousands Massacred In Burma
I am sure there are many more than we will ever know about. But, as long as China and India remain silent, this will continue. We all know that the UN is powerless, they have been irrelevant for years now. Only those closest to Burma can exert any influence, but as long as Burma has the natural resources necessary for fledgling economies to grow, the only thing we will hear from India and China will be Asian crickets chirping.
Dems Attack Limbaugh
I don't know the specifics on this case, and quite frankly, I do not care. I do not listen to Limbaugh, I am not a fan. But the thing I find ironic in all of this is, many of the Netroots, Kos Kids, and MoveOn Dems have been quick to jump on the Murtha and Kerry bandwagon smearing our troops as terrorists and cold-blooded killers of civilians. But now, they are greatly offended that Limbaugh makes some kind of statement?
Give me a damned break here. This is the ultimate hypocrisy if there ever was one and shows just what kind of real values they have.
