The Republicans have officially lost my vote.

Well, the Republicans are down to Mike Huckabee and John McCain. One is a Baptist minister who feels that evolution is false and the Earth is 6000 years old, the other a former Navy pilot and POW from Vietnam. Huckleberry thinks we should be able to change the Constitution to fit the Bible. His evangelical Christian ways and how they will sway his political policies has him out in my book.

I had thought that McCain was not a terrible guy, and was a reasonable candidate. Then, in an attempt to appease conservatives at CPAC last week, he stated how liberty is given to us by the Creator (he means God, but doesn't want to offend people by saying this directly) not by nations or government.

Well, I was more than likely to vote democrat anyway, but now there is very little likelihood of my vote going anywhere but Demo. While both Obama and Hillary are admitted Christians, they both respect the secular foundations of this country. The right will completely alienate the freethinkers/humanists/atheists, all but rejecting that we even have rights equal to others.
