The GOP has two Conservative parties.
We started out with a number of Republicans who represented pro-choice and pro-life conservatives. These are your basic Fiscal Conservatives and Social Conservatives.
Fiscal Conservatives are the basic limited government, balanced budget, individual freedom Republicans that were the basis for Goldwater and Reagan voters.
Social Conservatives are those who speak for the Bible over the Constitution and have their list of prohibitions banning abortions, gay marriages and death with dignity. This agenda was presented by Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell and was adopted by G.W. Bush.
I know of only one nation that demands these prohibitions and that is the nation of Islam. That is the nation of Mohammad where drawings of him are forbidden under the threat of dying. Islam rules through their schools, laws and family values with laws coming from their Mosques. Freedoms are often forbidden and suicide is the rule. Islam has never had individual freedoms as part of their government and in the last 7 years America is touting the same lack of individual freedoms.
I cannot figure out why any America would opt for legislation against many of the social conservative rules that are not found in the Constitution but in the Holy Bible.
Apparently Bush bought the leaders of the religious right with his faith based grants but how many of us see the parallel with Islam? It is obvious that America needs to be Christian and Islam needs to be Muslim. Why?
Voting for any Republican in 2008 will bring the kind of religious bigotry to America as is found in the Middle East. Is this what we want? The decision is in the election.
