    How to save the GOP? Return to the principles of true conservatism: Small government/fiscal conservatism/etc. Return religion to where it belongs - in church. Separation of church and state is good for both religion AND politics.

    problem is the Right Wing that controls the GOP wants to turn the USA into a theocracy where if your not a Born Again Christian you will have no rights. Sort of like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan and all other Islamic countries. If Jesus was here he would be a Democrat not a hateful Republican

    No one wants to turn the USA into a “Theocracy.” That is a liberal canard. There are no great “theocratic” leaders. Right-wingers just want to outlaw abortion, preserve the tradition of marriage, and stop government funds from going to groups that promote as much. Hardly the same as beheadings for “blasphemy” and stonings for so-called adultery you see in Islamic lands.

    The fundies DO want a theocracy and they will be just as bad as any other. Once in power the fools who believe as they do will make the Salem trials and the Inquisition look like a picnic. Just listen to their leaders and beware.

    I’m an Eisenhower Republican. At age 62 I have no home. Conservatives are mean and liberals are gullible. Jefferson trusted the farmers - people who worked the land. As of the 2007 Ag Census, “Of the 2.2 million principal farm operators in the nation, 1.2 million report something other than farming as their primary occupation.” The total 2007 U.S. workforce was 153 million. Trust, but verify was not only for the Soviets. It should have been applied on Wall Street. The conservatives took credit for the economic growth, now want to be “moral” about bailing out the risk taking they encouraged with lack of oversight. The people who have turned Republican into a brand that can be used to game the country took away the party I first joined.
    We have small government for local issues, and medium government for state issues and big government for the big issues. We don’t need total government anymore than we need total religion or total commerce. Each institution needs to play the role human society needs so that we may have freedom. These institution are to serve we the people.

    Regarding “theocracy”:

    Part of the Wikipedia definition is the following: “Theocratic governments enact theonomic laws.” Looking up theonomy: “The term “Theonomy” has been used to describe various views which see the God revealed in the Bible as the sole source of human ethics… Theonomy posits that the Biblical Law is applicable to civil law, and theonomists propose Biblical law as the standard by which the laws of nations may be measured, and to which they ought to be conformed.”

    Now tell me again that the fundamentalists don’t want a theocracy.

    Randy B, I believe you’re on to something. Examples of this are the whole gay marriage arguments. Constitutionally, there’s no argument against gay marriage. The only arguments are religious. Same arguments were used in making divorce illegal (long time ago now), but of course, it became too inconvenient, so we worked our way around that one.

    Doctortoon, if the GOP was like that, I’d be in it. As it is, thats the Democrats. Funny how the terms liberal and conservative have gotten changed in the last 50 years. Remember Lincoln was a Republican. And he was an upstanding member of his party.
