"We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

This is a recent quote from Sen Hillary Rodham Clinton suggesting that Democrats would cut Bush tax cuts if the president is defeated in November. I would hazard to guess there is much more Sen Clinton and the Demoncrats would like to take away from us. Do not forget this quote.

Okay, firstly the Bush's tax plan goes twords the top 1% of the population, so they wouldn't be taking anything away from the common man, would they? They would be taking away from the rediculously wealthy. So the statement is either willfully intended to misrepresent, or you have a sub-par understanding of current events. Which is it? Secondly, since religon is obviously on the forfront of your mind and you love Bush, do you feel his religous beliefs are practical? Don't you find that he is a fundamentalist? That's kind of black and white thinking leads to ignorance.

Common man vs Rich man. Class warfare is okay with you? Where does it say in Scripture or Catholic Social Teachings, take from the rich and give to the poor? Sen Clinton was speaking to "rich" people when she said this, true, but it gets to the heart of liberalism and that is that government knows better than the individual. Be it taxes or guns or religion, etc. liberalism seeks to control.

Yes, the president's beliefs are practical. The president, whether a fundamentalist, evangelical, etc. is pro-life, pro-marriage, and stands with serious Catholics on issues which are important to us. Black and white leads to ignorance? I will take the black and white thinking of the president in dealing with terrorists over the nuanced approach of Sen Kerry, any day.

Jesus taught to respond to evil with love. Bombing a city, town, country, or anything else wether provoked or not is not responding with love. Seconday Bush policy is to strke with violence before being striked ourselves. As a Catholic, how can you support such a policy. By the way the Pope is against not only the wars but preemptive strike policy as well because it represents nothing of what how we are supposed to live our lives.
