Republican Falsehoods

I often hear the Republican Party is the party of limited or small government. HUH? What the hell does that mean? I certainly see no evidence of that. Does it refer to Republican tendency to slash taxes and therefore reduce government's ability to take care of those on the edges of society? Or is just a relative thing- they believe in big government - just not as big as Democrats would like?

Another annoying phrase - this judge won't legislate from the bench. That is complete bullshit. Whenever a politician says that, what they really mean is that this judge won't overturn or overrule the laws I like and support.

Make no mistake - the Republican Party is the party of Moral Superiority. It is a group of people who believes they have all the answers, that they know right and wrong, and that they have the right and duty to force everyone to follow their example. They will do whatever it takes to enforce their moral superiority.

You talk about morality and values a GREAT deal. Define exactly what you mean by each of these terms.

Dictionary.com:

Morals: Rules or habits of conduct, especially of sexual conduct, with reference to standards of right and wrong

Values: A principle, standard, or quality considered worthwhile or desirable

If you're asking what my morals and values are, read on. Like all of us, I discover them, cultivate them and refine them as I go through life. This site talks about them a Great deal because that is a large part of it's purpose.
