Somewhere in the near future, we must face the Fundamentalists
because, they won't go away, ever. i thought they would, back when they first injected themselves into reagan's fold, i thought they were just a flash in the pan, but over the last 2 decades they've gained monstrous powers.

they are BRINKSMEN, in that it's never enough for them, they want it ALL. they are on a mission to conquer the globe for christ AGAIN.
we WILL have to face them and deal with them, because they will not negotiate with us or give in or meet us halfway.

remember david koresh and the branch davidiots?

1. Fine by me...We outnumber them about 8 to 1.
We should have been confronting these lunatics all along.

3. Confronting fundamentalists....
will require a whole lot more backbone than we`ve seen thus far. Democratic party "leaders" have been running scared for four years now...too busy proving they`re religious to look at the dangerous melding of church and state.

I remember back when Dean was running for the party`s nomination. CNN held a virtual religion contest between Dean and Bush without so much as a hint of understanding toward New Englander`s practice of NOT openly discussing religious beliefs. It`s a private and personal matter here.

Rove has done a superb job of setting the bar. If you oppose George Bush, you oppose the one true God.

5. very true, a religious pissing contest
hillary, joe LIEberman, kerry, every damn politician on both sides bloviating, 'hey, i go to church too see?!?!'...

even david koresh was given a break in my opinion, because he could quote the bible so well. if he'd been a big ugly black muslim cultist, they'd have shot them all up on day one.

6. Funda mental heads are made not born
in the early 70s those lost souls fell into cults that gave them answers and made them feel like they couldn't come up with thier own.The un-inteligence community here got the mid east all fundied out to not go communist (gotta get that oil).
These fundys were created,it's all they know like soilders they do what they are told because thier leaders use them.Even when they learn they were screwed they keep fighting.
When they become well trained fighting and killing machines they still pose no threat to progress,they have been duped into devolving ,thinking it will be simple and they can handle it.They need answers because thier leaders tell them they are stupid and the world is going to end anyhow then they get to go to the good place.They have been told that life is evil,it's sad because the only thing they are allowed to wonder about is death.
Maybe the enemy is the people who created them,we know who they are and they surround themselves with payed thugs to protect them.Things get better when the thugs realize they are getting screwed.I can't hate the fundys and freepers,they are like helpless animals drinking the kool aid,they have been told we are the enemy.They figure shit out most of the time after everything gets trashed.The neocons will start taking each other out because they are spoiled punks,educated but they have no common sence.This whole country will not get duped hopefully.
Fuck the polls and media, they drank the kool aid too.It is only a matter of time before the talking heads have left before they get called out on thier bull shit .
wow that was cheerfull .

7. The so called Christian RW is well organized and
financed. The confusion has been in terms. Evangelicals are not
necessarily RWers yet many of the RW Fundies call themselves that.
As long as the RW Christians hold power within the Repub party they will keep pushing their fanatical agenda and the Repubs will bend to them as far as they can bend. Most Amerikans are not Fundies yet the agenda has been framed to snare any that do hold Christian beliefs. Liberal Christians have been slow in speaking out against the radical right although there have been attempts made, the Fundies are more vocal and strident. All Amerikans that do not wish to live under a Corporate RW Christian Dictatorship should be railing against this juggernaught of the Christian Fascist movement.
