I'm sad to say that my political party, the GOP, though never without it's flaws, has largely become a parody of what it used to be, a "Kramer" circa 1997-98, with the Religious Right now the primary voting bloc in it's constituency. All a candidate has to do is jump up and holler "I'm a Christian! Family values here!" and a Religious Right stampede ensues to jump on his or her bandwagon. "Down with those mean ole godless liberals!!!"
The heroes of late? Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee. Here's a couple of links for my blog's audience to consider. Discernment should be a quality that matters in a candidate to those who vote or are politically influenced from a spiritual perspective. Beyond that statement, check out the links and draw your own conclusions.
