    Why can’t this country attract better candidates in both parties?

    Because the whole system has become a complete fubar. The people trying to get to D.C. are all about power and not statesmanship. I would almost go so far as to believe that most candidates are not psychologically fit to hold the offices that they’re running for, since they are striving for personal power and not from any sense of duty to their country and/or obligation to their constituents.

    Santorum as a pilgrim? I thought they were about religious freedom not stuffing my particular views down your throat.

    PossumPete – you are correct – but as a symbol of prudishness it is instantly recognizable, even though that too is an inaccurate view.

    I think that’s Santorum as a puritan. They were about stuffing their particular views down everybody else’s throat.

    The pilgrims were only about their own religious freedom to enforce their religion on everyone else. They were just as oppressive to others as the establishment in England were to them.

    the pilgrims were not the same people who wrote our Bill of rights, yes they just wanted everyone to worship there way but that gave out to tolerance of all religions, remember it says “freedom of religion” not “freedom from religion”

    Oddly enough, however, even the Puritans did not object to abortion (it’s amazing how many pregnant young unmarried women “lost” their pregnancies). The traditional Biblical view, after all, was that a pregnancy wasn’t a life until after quickening (usually around 4 months); and in Puritan society, there was far more shame in an unmarried woman having a child than there was in an unmarried woman “losing a pregnancy”. (Source: New England township court records from the 18th. Century, as currently preserved on microfiche. This was a history project I did as an undergraduate.)


    So basically, Santorum is even more socially repressive and “conservative” than the Puritans were.

    And in the rare times this does happen, it is misunderstood, the statesman maligned — e.g. Obama.

    Who wins of the US falls? The plutocracy here. They want to be given the reigns to take control an remake the USA in their image. Not a pretty sight.

    Tigger, the Democrats had 56 senators in the 111th Congress. There were two Independents who caucused with the Democrats so they had at most 58 votes if they held them together. It takes 67 votes to invoke cloture of a filibuster. So in fact the Democrats never had a Super Majority in the Senate.

    The Democrats did have a majority in the House but never had a super majority in the Senate.
