i wish we could time travel

I am under 45 years old.
I love the outdoors and hunting.
I am a Republican reformer.
I have taken on the Republican party establishment.
I have many children.
I have a spot on the national ticket for Vice President
with less than 2 years in the Governor's office.

Who am I?

Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States
Who did you think?

When did it become okay for people to question faith? I thought it was politically incorrect to question one's faith? Or does it just depend on which faith is in question?
I really wish that Charlie Gibson could go back in time and ask President Lincoln and our previous leaders the same questions that he's asked Gov. Palin. Wouldn't that be cool to hear their responses? I'd love to hear what they'd have to say... and I'd love to see what they'd do.
Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was a five-star general and the Supreme Commander during WWII, was instrumental in the addition of the words "
under God" to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954, and the 1956 adoption of "In God We Trust" as the motto of the US, and its 1957 introduction on paper currency. My guess is that if Gibson could go back in time and ask these same questions to President Eisenhower.... well, I'm thinking Gibson would get his ass kicked.

Lastly, I would like to know what Gibson would ask of President Lincoln's beliefs?
This is how our beloved Lincoln said it:
"The will of God prevails. In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be, wrong. God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time. In the present civil war it is quite possible that God's purpose is something different from the purpose of either party—and yet the human instrumentalities, working just as they do, are of the best adaptation to effect His purpose. I am almost ready to say this is probably true—that God wills this contest, and wills that it shall not end yet. By his mere quiet power, on the minds of the now contestants, He could have either saved or destroyed the Union without a human contest. Yet the contest began. And having begun He could give the final victory to either side any day. Yet the contest proceeds."

for mickeyb

Thanks to CBS, here's some info on how the candidates differ on taxes.
They did a story on how it would affect 3 different families.

Watch it.

If you don't have time to watch the story, here's the breakdown:

Obama's Plan:
  • Would eliminate Bush tax cuts for families making more than $200,000
  • Proposes $500 tax credits for workers making less than $150,000
  • Eliminate income taxes for seniors making less than $50,000
  • Proposes 2% Social Security tax on those making more than $250,000
  • Proposes raising top tax rate to more than 39%; second highest tax rate to 36%

McCain's Plan:
  • Supports making Bush tax cuts permanent
  • Proposes doubling personal exemption to $7,000 for dependents (phased in over 10 years for those making more than $50,000)
  • Proposes keeping investment income tax at 15%
  • Proposes keeping top tax rate at 35%

must see video

Do you believe that life is gift? I do. I believe life is a gift from God.
Would you kill a living, breathing baby? No? I wouldn't either. I think most people wouldn't.

I don't know about you, but when I consider all of the issues surrounding this next election... there's only one that I really need to know about. It's called induced labor abortion or infanticide. It's the killing of fully born infants who have survived a failed abortion attempt. They are left to die without any medical attention. Here is a video of the nurse who testified at the US House committee and various state committees. This is the same nurse who testified in Illinois, in front of Obama, about a 21-22 week old baby who she held until he died.

How many times did Barack Hussein Obama vote for infanticide? Records show: 3 times.

Please take the time to watch the video. Thank you.
