AnonLiberals said...."Hey guess what... government *is* people. It's the people who have officially gotten together and decided to do their best to serve the public. Yes, sometimes they go crooked, but they're people just like your neighbors."

Your logic here is certainly conclusive. Government is in fact made up of "people". You're missing the point though. The government as a bureaucratic device can not be compared to family, friends and neighbors. While the government has its political agenda, we the people have our values, principles and each other.

Like you've said countless times, it's apples and oranges.

I for one, would like to learn more about your faith in others. What is it about the government that you have so much faith in relative to your "neighbors"?

Well, it certainly was a miracle that they agreed on the contents. Or wait... should I say it was an incredibly non-probable event that statistically manifested itself based on complete, structured randomness. LOL. ;)

Teasing aside, I'm not sure how having "men of varying faiths" leads into a "secular" document. Either way, I'm not arguing whether the constitution is a "secular" or "non-secular" document. I'm not a qualified expert, but I am a thinker. I'm just reinforcing the facts to our friends here that our founding fathers were men of principle and faith.

Well you know what.... everyone should make friends with their neighbors. It's a sad state of affairs when people can't rely on each other for love and encouragement. Yea, sissy words I know. We need to stop looking in the wrong places (government), and start looking in the right places (people).

I share your sentiment that this country was found on many principles, including those of faith (#2). There are many, many like you and I. Just look around. :)

We do not want to go down the path of revolting with arms. Right now we need to re-establish power in our VOICE and make some changes in our local governments via pressure and influence.

Sometimes I think people get too wrapped up in "logic" and forget "common-sense". Well said keithiepoo.

While radical liberals claim that we live in a secular country, and that we were founded so - they fail to confront the clear facts that leading founding fathers were men of faith. Liberals get confused on this line, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion." Many interpret it to mean that this country was found on secular principles - when in fact it was clearly not (just study the founding fathers). The goal of the writers was to establish a government that did not suppress its people of choice, but instead granted them the ultimate power to make their own choices.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it. ~Thomas Paine

The government does a lousy job with a lot of things nowadays. Remember the disaster that Katrina was?

I can't imagine relying on the government to provide care for me. I'd prefer my friends and family any day.
