Once again, well said bluegrass...and glad to see you've come out of hiding
I too think money is in large part the root of all evil in politics.
We should not only have a separation of church and state
but just as equally important a separation of corporations and state.
As for the validity of my OP, in relationship to this awareness. We have two parties pulled by the same string (purse strings). But one of these
parties has an additional string... that of the mind altering, perception twisting text called the bible. Which in my opinion, makes "smart moral
republican" just as much an oxymoron as "compassionate conservative".
In just about every fabric of our society, we have bible-thumpers holding us back from making progress in the sciences, foreign relations and in
domestic social services.
And to the most conservative of conservatives, the apocalyptic wet dreams must be put to an end before they become self-fulfilling prophecies (ie
invasion of Iran).
