Sorry, I'm not a Christian except in the belief that All Religions Are One. I'm a Baha'i' which is sort of a Moslem, though not really. The Baha'i's are the ones that the Moslems hang whenever they can. But I'm really more of a Pantheist. I believe that God is Everything and Much More. And Christianity is currently one of the gentler Religions, that hasn't always been true.

As always, of course, politics just turns into picking the lesser evil.
As long as you vote.

Personally, from what the Democrats have accomplished in the last two years, and because the financial meltdown isn't really a meltdown at all but the Politicians are beating that drum for all it's worth, and those chickens go home to roost at President Carter's and President Clinton's house, I'll keep watching.

If those twits actually pass that "bailout" we should erect a fence around Washington DC just to keep them from escaping and polluting the gene pool.
