  • I find it interesting that the same people who use this quote by Jefferson, are the same people to whom the separation of church and state has little relevance. That was a Jeffersonian ideal as well.

    actually in most cases that isn't the case.. I find it amusing that you lump everyone who doesn't like big government, must like like separation of church and state...
    seriously anon, you are assuming too much, and it's making your statement look silly and amusing to the rest of us.

  • Lisnteing to Hannity the other night.Again just asked random Obama voters questions.Young ones ..it was interesting.Most did not know who the vp is yet again but they are alll about turning America into big government controlled socialist America.Oh everybody should have "free" this and "free" that and one said well umm I think people need to work at least some for it though.BWAHAHA are you kidding me? sooo as long as they put in even a minimal amount of effort they should be carried through their lives with others peoples money.
    This is what our country has becomes I guess....WONDERFUL
