Yup, George Washington's praying won the revolutionary war. Sound military strategy, bombs, weapons, and the desire to be free had absolutely nothing to do with it. Just like Georgie Bush's praying won the Iraq and Afghan wars HE started with his deceit and lies. Tell your stupid right wing theories to the parents and families of the soldiers (and civilians) killed fighting them. Where was your God for them? Turley-Hansen, you are with all due respect, a moron.
Hello, my fellow American voters!
I watched the Oct. 3rd, 11th, 16th, and 22nd debates.1st Romney-Obama debate covered 7 topics: jobs; budget deficit/debt; social security/entitlements; federal gov’t economic regulation and role; healthcare; partisan gridlock.2nd Romney-Obama debate covered 11 topics: college graduate jobs; gas prices; taxes; equal pay; Bush policies; Obama’s record; illegal immigrants; Libya; assault weapons; jobs; candidate misperceptions.3rd Romney-Obama debate covered 10 topics: Libya; Syria; Egypt; U.S. world role; military spending; Israel; Iran; Afghanistan; China; U.S. national security threats.Ryan-Biden debate covered 10 topics: Libya; Iran; economy; medicare/social security/entitlements; tax reform/spending/budget cuts; military policy; Afghanistan; Syria; abortion; negative campaign tactics.
Romney and Ryan won all 4 debates, although Obama improved some in the 2nd debate and Romney slightly took the win both in the 2nd and 3rd debates.In the 3rd debate (unlike in prior debates), Obama reflected his weakness and disrespect by interrupting Romney a lot and using too many “one-line quips” to try to denigrate Romney.
Ryan won despite Biden’s consistently rude behavior during the debate (often interrupted Ryan, laughed when Ryan talked, pointed his finger). Biden’s tactics to evade issues/truth disrespected Americans interested in facts, figures, forecasts, and solutions for real people with real problems.
Romney and Ryan won with substance, directness, integrity, respect, clarity, facts, commitment, inspiration, credibility, and leadership.
As an INDEPENDENT female feminist (egalitarian) voter, I support the Romney/Ryan ticket.Romney and Ryan, with their no-nonsense and methodic approach to solving America’s problems, are the best persons in terms of qualifications and character to lead our country and make life better for all Americans.
I am inspired by Romney/Ryan, and I hope that you are too!
Linda,This piece is so devoid of anything resembling a worthwhile statement that I find it unnecessary to disagree with any of it.
mrconservative,What planet are you on. Tea party radicals will lie at the drop of a hat and do whatever underhanded evil trickery they think will achieve their mis-guided goals.Just ask Olivia Cortez and Greg Western. Maybe throw in the Pearce boys, too. All upstanding, law-abiding models of virtue. In a PIGS EYE!!!!!!!!!!!Sorry Olivia, you aren't mearly as scummy as the others. You were duped by the gang.
(Sorry about the repeated comment. I made a minor error in the above comment.)
The main difference between the occupiers and tea-partiers is that the tea-partiers are peaceful; they clean up after themselves. The occupiers have been known to use the police cars as their own personal toiltets, among a few other atrocites. Do Dale Whiting and Jon Biteler really support that group? God forbid if they do.

"We Whites do have own support groups. Ever heard of the KKK? And when was the last time you saw a picture of a Tea Party ralley with a minority pictured in it?"
Dale, do you think any of Linda's "few respectable, cognitive ones" are minorities?
Nice to hear Linda including in her article praising youth the "few respectable, cognitive ones . . . showing up at [both] the occupation sit-ins and tea parties". Most conservatives are hammering the Occupy youth groups.
