Hi Brandy. Um, the pictures were just a joke. Sent to me by a lbairel, Kerry-supporting friend from California. He earlier sent me a mock Republican National Convention Schedule which I thought was funny too.I've blogged before about being dissatisfied with Bush and not even sure I will vote for him. This is not a Blog 4 Bush and lately I've pretty much avoided politics. I am considering voting for the Constitution Party, except that I disagree about foreign policy.I do not think your assessment of the Republican party as screwing over the less fortunate in order to keep the money and power in their hands is accurate, unless by that you mean they are capitalists and not socialists .the wage war against nationsI think the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which are part of the War on Terror, are right and just. I believe that to whom much is given, much is required. I also believe that whoever sees the good that he can do, and does not do it, sins. So when we see the need, and have the ability, to intervene in places like Iraq and the Sudan, we should do so. Militarily, if necessary. Of course we must do so wisely, and not recklessly, but I am not an isolationist.destroy the environment which we were put here to be tenants of?not dominatorsGod told us to take dominion over the earth and subdue it. That's more than a tenant . The general Biblical perspective is that we should be good stewards .Economically developed nations, such as the USA, are better stewards of the environment than are underdeveloped nations. We can and should do better, but I think that will be accomplished through technological advances such as nuclear (fusion) power and the like.Yeah?sounds like a great decision for any reasonable thinking scripture abiding Christian to make?Not all issues are equally important. I don't mean to defend the Republican Party on all issues, because it is unworthy of such defense.The most important issues to me have to do with national morality (abortion, gay marriage, etc), national security (aggressive war on terror), liberty (all of the first 10 amendments, including both 1 and 2), and national sovereignty (not giving France a veto over our foreign policy). Economic policies, the environment, and things like that are much less important to me right now.
