  1. #1 What are we to do? 
    King Obama has already started down the road of completely re-facing what America is. From granting the closure of the Detention Camp at Gitmo to giving away taxpayer money overseas for abortion, what do we do? I feel so isolated from my country, that my opinion or my stance as well as others doesn't matter anymore. Do we protest? Do we get up and leave? Do we join a militia? Do we just surrender and give up? I really don't know what we are to do. Conservatives are being silenced even more by the media. Did this President forget that over 58 million people did not vote for him? Suggestions, anyone.

    I get peace from reading the Scriptures. God said this would all happen, it's the only comfort I know of.

    I'm a bit tired of hearing other Christians telling each other not to complain, to do nothing but respect Obama and how that's the godlything to do, I so disagree. Jesus was telling the Jews to obey the Romans. And I think we need to be lawabiding of course, in the same way.

    But I see Obama like I see Ahab, Obama is shaping up to be one of the most evil rulers around. I don't think God expects us to embrace him and act like we agree with whatever he says.

    Just keep looking for His coming. Amazing how much Scripture prophesies are coming alive on the page.

    I suggest sticking with the tried and true methods Republicans have used for ages.

    Cry about everything Obama does for the next four years.

    Pretend that you want smaller government. Quoting Ronald Reagan gets you bonus points here.

    When the primaries roll around, demonize any candidate who looks like they might actually want smaller government. Ultimately pick a socialist who wants pretty much everything Obama does, only he'll spend all that abortion money on the military, the war on drugs, and/or Israel.

    With luck, by then, enough people might be sick of the Democrats so you're guy gets slightly more than half the votes cast. If not, try again in four years.

    You do recall that McCain also called for closing Guantanamo, right?

    Crying over millions of shredded infants? The ones that would have supported my generation as we got older? If millions of dead children isn't something to cry over, nothing is.

    I'll agree though, the GOP made a huge error when they disregarded their Christian conservative base.

    Wait. Abortion upsets you because you need future taxpayers to support your welfare leeching ass?

    I always thought it was a religious thing.

    I often see that as an argument - "Social Security wouldn't be in trouble if those babies hadn't been aborted". Saying we got rid of people who could have been our indentured servants is not a very noble argument, but it's frequently used.

    Ignore him. I do and it makes for a more pleasurable message board experience.

    Party over principles strikes again.

    Anyway, closing Gitmo doesn't mean the prisoners go free. I think this is a non-issue like gays in the military.
    Who thought for a nanosecond that McCain mattered? I did not like or support McCain. I voted for him because I did not want to stand by and let the only avowed Socialist get the WH by default.

    McCain is NOT a Conservative, he's a political opportunist. He is no Republican, he is a RINO. Before accusing this entire board of "party over politics," you should review the evidence. Who agreed on this board with ANY candidate in favor of closing Gitmo?

    If it is a non issue, you must have the elusive answer to what we do with these pieces of scum? Nobody else seems to have the answer, please share your ideas.
