You know, I never looked at it that way before. You may have a valid point there. Consider

For better or worse, that's what it takes to be competitive as a politician regardless of your affiliation. We can't even blame them, either, because we keep voting for the fuckers.

If I give my kid a cookie every time he lies to me, and he adapts by becoming a habitual liar in order to maximize his ability to obtain cookies, I can't use that to rationalize that children are all liars. It's my fault as a parent for creating a situation where lying produces positive results.

The stereotypical politician is no different. If we'd stop voting for the ones that are full of shit (a list that includes every single one of the major party front runners, including but not limited to Trump, Hillary, and Sanders), they'd have no choice but to stop being full of shit. But we don't. Every single election cycle we eat it up like junkies addicted to false promises and impossible idealistic solutions, and we reward them for telling us what we want to hear. They'd be stupid to be honest in their promises and declarations, because regardless of what we may claim, there is no data to suggest that the vast majority of voters have any interest in reality and honesty in their chosen leaders.

Fuckin' world has done gone crazy!

They all do. A non church going candidate, republican or democrat, wouldn't stand a chance. Even the specific church they choose to go to is an important strategic consideration. Remember the hot water Obama was briefly in due to his wacky church? I doubt he even believes in God, but the second be lets on to the fact his political career would be finished.

You claim Sanders is a Marxist. He is not. Will you retract your claim?
No.
And I am not trying to offend him. I actually like Sanders. I think he is good man.

RE: Falwell Jr endorses Trump.
Trump appears to me to be even more of a war monger than George Bush.

You guys vote him in, you might just find yourselves in a war against NZ (oh, and the rest of the common wealth, and the Muslims, and the Russians, the Chinese, the Koreans, the South Americans, pretty much anyone that isn't a white USA citizen)

I agree with you. He is unpredictable, dangerous man to ALL people. And all those who call themselves "evangelicals" and support him are out of their minds.

Laugh out load

Socialism is not Marxism, dear. Now about that book. I know you tend to read fairy stories (Mormon Tall Tales), but you really should try reading something educational.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

So, he's not a Marxist but you won't admit that you are wrong? Facepalm

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Looks like out-of-closet Marxist is very popular among young people who want free...hmm...everything.

How is everything going to be "free"?

Not how but when. When proletariat will throw of it's shackles and remind istelf of it's preordained mission. Then and only then there will be justice, freedom and to everyone according to need Big Grin.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
