Okay....we need to raise the pay of soldiers to $ 100,000 / year....same with cops and the firefighters and parmedics and fighter pilots and sailors and marines...and the list goes on and on. People put their lives on the line everyday to keep us safe. Christian values hasn't a GD thing to do with it.Keep that BS to yourself. GO VIKINGS!!!
The spending has to stop somewhere........GO VIKINGS!!!
Please remove Christian values from the GOP platform. True Christians are taught to have compassion for people in their time of need. We do not want a healthcare bill and we do not want to help those who risk their lives so that we can be safe.
I am not the one that coined that term for the GOP.
Grand Old Party. Conservative Republican Christian Values.
Nothing like good old Christian values GOP Politicians telling you how to live your life, while busy robbing and shagging everything going.
