Romney wins with 320 Electoral College votes.
It is one prediction. I think it's unrealistic, however. I expect to see the President re-elected without great difficulty, and that if Romney somehow ekes out a victory it will be by something closer to the 2004 margin (286-251). We shall see.It's very realistic.
Wow, that is so far off base that I don't know where to begin. How do you translate Jesus telling people to sell all they have, give to the poor, and to follow him to your statement, which amounts to "fuck the poor". Your understanding of poverty in the US is as shallow as your understanding of Christianity.Tell me where in the bible Jesus said people should be able to cut off their own hands and then demand people feed them?
Because that is really what social justice is nowadays. The belief that "poor" people should be able to do whatever they want and demand others support them.
Oh please. Superman's body was conditioned by his home planet of Krypton, so when he got here his body was able to do things normal humans can't. Normal earthlings would all be relative supermen on the moon too, jumping huge distances and lifting massive objects. That's just science. But a lasso that makes people tell the truth? That's ridiculous.And Jesus is the very thing that Hebrew prophets warned their followers about.
Christians making fun of Mormons (or vice versa) reminds me of kids arguing that Superman is totally believable but Wonder Woman is not (or vice versa).
How so? I will admit that Christianity is often twisted in that way, but social justice is not the part that bends in that direction.Social justice is a lie, too. People just take it and twist it into a weapon to enforce their belief system on everyone else. Just look at all the stupid laws we make year after year.
Fair enough on your first paragraph. This is why I am extremely weary of those that wear Christianity on their sleeves when running for office. The "Moral Majority" and other such right wing groups are modern day scribes and pharisees. The evangelical movement is quite scary in the way that they want to influence the political process.I'm actually not anti-religion, I just don't think a book edited by a bunch of bigoted totalitarian kings is the official word of God.
Mormonism is, in and of itself, the very thing that Jesus warned his followers about. They are the pharisees and false prophets he so often warned us about, and to not take that seriously shows a huge lacking in the Christians of this country who should be protecting us from this type of person but, instead, embrace him as one of their own.
Perhaps because most don't know. I didn't even know until recently. It did not change my opinion of him. I suspect that even if most Democrats knew, that they really wouldn't care.why is it only bad when a republican is a mormon but nothing is said about a democrat?
"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Reid, Democratic senator from Nevada, is an LDS convert. He became part of the church when he was in college. He is the highest serving Mormon in U.S. government history."
not much different than Obama and the fairy tales he believes.Oh gee, I wonder why. Jesus is going to come back to Earth in Missouri, really? Do you know how fucking stupid that sounds? Wow, some dude wrote a new religious fantasy novel when he came to America and we're supposed to believe this bullshit is the new real religion? Get fucking real.
I sincerely hope so. I dont want people crying racism. I want the guy to have two crappy terms so no one can whine about anything. So they can see he was just another human being and not Jesus Part 2.Yay, we'll finally get to see what a second Carter term would have looked like.
but that is my point. no one cares if it is a democrat but its all doom and gloom make fun of Romney and his religious beliefs because he is a mormon.Perhaps because most don't know.

I haven't seen anyone make fun of Romney's religious beliefs, other than people affiliated with Gingrich's and Perry's campaigns (and no fair blaming the Democrats for that!).but that is my point. no one cares if it is a democrat but its all doom and gloom make fun of Romney and his religious beliefs because he is a mormon.
No, he almost certainly won't. The Republicans will continue to have near-parity in the Senate and control of the House, and they will continue to lock things up. I think if Obama had a stronger Senate Majority Leader he might be better situated to really push things through, but I don't expect that to change anytime soon.If Obama wins reelection he will be able to implement his agenda full-stop.
