If the Republican Party wants me, and others like me, back in their party, then they need to find a way to divorce themselves from the theocrats in their Party.
    You don't get to vote for the party that supported, and legislated government forced vaginal probes, and then claim to oppose Obama because he represents "increased government control, and power".

    The US is one of the few Western democracies (if you can stretch your imagination and call it a democracy) in which social conservatism is a political issue.

    In NZ, for example, religion has no place in politics (though human rights do). The last attempt by a religious vested interest to influence political opinion was met by overwhelming resistance. The party that looked to be winning in the polls crashed to an ignominious and well-deserved defeat as soon as it was revealed the Exclusive Brethren were behind an ad campaign.

    We keep religion in the littlest room where it belongs.

    Come sit down beside me I said to myself
    And although it doesn't make sense
    I held my own hand as a small sign of trust
    And together I sat on the fence

    That is how I vote in local elections. But others don't.

    Social conservatism should be kept in the Prehistoric display at the Smithsonian Institution. Between Neanderthal man clubbing his wife, and Tyrannosaurus Rex terrorizing the Herbivores.

    I wouldn't worry too much about vocabulary at your stage of comprehension , concentrate on meaning and non selectivity .

    OK, back on track.

    Had Petraeus smaked one of these women in the mouth and then advised her to put ice on that, who he get a pass like Bill Clinton?

    It was briefly. Then we figured it was a stupid idea.

    So we have no states and a unicameral legislature.

    Saves a lot of bother.
