From the 2012 GOP Platform – some things that are important to Republicans.
I believe that our:
- Country is exceptional
- Constitution should be honored, valued, and upheld
- Leaders should serve people, not special interests
- Families and communities should be strong and free from government intrusion
- Institution of traditional marriage is the foundation of society
- Government should be smaller, smarter and more efficient
- Health care decisions should be made by us and our doctors
- Paychecks should not be wasted on poorly run government programs
- Military must be strong and prepared to defend our shores
- Culture should respect and protect life
- Children should never be left in failing schools
- Veterans should have the best care and opportunities in the world
- Social programs should help lift people out of poverty
- America should be energy independent
These are the things that the Republican candidates should be talking about, and how they compare and contrast to the Democrat Party’s way of doing things. We should be talking about how we believe our way is better, and why, and demonstrating how these ideals have a proven track record of success. We should be talking about how the Democrat Party’s way is a way of deficiency, and demonstrating how their ideals have a proven track record of failure.

Hmmmm…interesting question to ponder.
Clipped from House of Eratosthenes
Saw this on House of Eratosthenes a while back, and wanted to put my own thoughts to it.
Even if this were true – because Lord knows there are plenty of rude neighbors out there like this – clearly this person who advocates living in a “safe Christian neighborhood” hasn’t read much of their Bible, if they have one.
Even Christ Himself told His disciples to arm themselves when they went out:
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
36 And He said to them, “But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.
The sword was even more important than the coat, apparently!
My $.02. 🙂
I believe the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
I believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age, or disability.
I believe that free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth, and prosperity.
I believe government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
I believe the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.
I believe the most effective, responsible, and responsive government is government closest to the people.
I believe Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
I believe Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom, and human rights throughout the world.
Finally, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
This is why I’m Republican.
Even my kids were stunned at the hypocrisy in this video! Children! Which makes it kind of sad in a way – if even kids understand how unreasonable the explanations are, why can’t these adults?
Here’s how the VodkaPundit described it, quite fittingly!
Stunning, jaw-dropping, belly-laugh-inducing hypocrisy on display at the DNC.
