Romney captures the God vote at first debate

This is a religious country. Part of claiming your citizenship is claiming a belief in God, even if you are not Christian.. We’ve got the Creator in our Declaration of Independence. We’ve got “In God We Trust” on our coins. We’ve got “one nation under God” in our Pledge of Allegiance. And we say prayers in the Senate and the House of Representatives to God.

An atheist could never get elected dog catcher, much less president.

Up until now, the idea of being American and believing in God were synonymous.

The Republicans have claimed God as their own this entire campaign, each candidate trying to out-Christian the other. Even Obama, though 17 percent of registered voters think he is a Muslim, has talked about being a Christian as often as he can.

If Obama wants to win the next debate, he needs to wear God, as much as it offends him to do so, the same way he captured the flag for this one.

    We don’t have to stone people to death anymore for infidelity but one can not grill on the balcony due to condo regulation 150 part C.

    On the right we have to “pray the Gay away” and on “the left” we dare not speak of gay/black/hispanic/overweight/mentally impaired/physically handicapped “incorrectly” lest the PC Clockwork Orange Police descend upon us for our impure thought process.  One is just as bad as the other in my book as neither takes on a live and let live theme.

    On a hopeful note, when we cross the galactic center of 2012 Mayan fame gamma rays kill off the atmosphere on planet earth.  Why is this excellent?  Well knowing this one can forgo the conventional financial institutionalized bullshit of planning for a future that is not and blow the 401s, 529s on a massive party of live life in the now.
