Rant and Rave for 11/10/12

MOULTRIE — The better half

“Now is the time for all good citizens to come to the aid of their country. Well, at least half of it. Now that the handout mentality has taken over, this country will probably be bankrupted within a couple of years. With burdens placed on the working minority, the revenues would just fall way short.

"So, what's the solution? I don't know. Maybe all of us good citizens in the red states could secede from Washington and start a new country. We could call it The United States of America's Better Half. We'll take the Constitution, the American flag, and the military. The blue states can keep everything else."

In response

“Ranter’s quote: ‘I am ashamed of America, in electing Barack Hussein Obama president. Half of America has proven they are socialist and un-American and without morals or character, they simply want something for free and what feels good, not what is right or patriotic. May God help us!!"

"I am an independent voter. I worked all of my life. I am a Christian. I voted for Obama. I am no less moral than you or anyone else...any who are you to judge? If you believe God is in control and His will is done...then apparently he wanted Obama to win. You can't have it both ways you know. Calm down and pray for our leaders."

Not what I said

“I didn't say Americans didn't have resolve and couldn't come out of this. However, it is going to be a ride we need to buckle up for and it will test our resolve. Never said we were ‘going to hell ‘in a hand basket’ as you so eloquently put it."

Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
