America's social problems?
I have a few for you to deal with and I'd love to see what your solutions are. The first is all the unwanted and neglected children now in foster care, most of who are black, Hispanic and biracial. I don't see many couples, especially you loving white Christians , adopting these children. So what do you suggest we do with these children since you don't want them to go back to their parents?
Second, what do you suggest we do with all the unwed women who would like to terminate their unwated pregnancies and you would like to prevent them from doing so. When they are pregnant, it is too late to talk about abstinance, so will you take them in and care for them and their unborn child?
Third, what are you going to do about the 50% divorce rate in the US? According to an article posted here a few days ago, Massachusetts, that evil liberal Northeastern state, has the lowest divorce rate in the nation, while divorce rates in the South, where most conservative Christians live, tend to have the higest. How the hell are you going to talk to the rest of us about fidelity when it is clear that your reigon of the country has a hard time practicing what you preach.
I have a few more, but I'll wait for the answers on these first.
OK, I didn't vote for Bush, obviously, and I am not even American, but I have to answer this.
Let's put it this way, supposing I knew nothing about Bush or Kerry, and came to this board so the "intellectual" posters here would enlighten me, I would have probably be scared, speechless, and as clueless as at the beginning.
And if I were stupid enough to believe that this board truely reflects what American think, they I would believe that liberals are stupid bigots with not a slightest clue and that republican are hmmm, stupid bigots with not a slightest clue.
That's what fanaticsm makes, that's what happens when you speak with your heart and not with your mind.
Haven't you ever thought that maybe, just maybe someone could have voted for Bush because he/she likes [b]some[b/] Bush policies? and that area is more important for that voter than other? and that it doesn't mean that voter agrees with Bush on EVERYTHING, have you ever heard of trade-offs?
What if voter A is for gay marriage, abortion, free medicare, and he/she very much prefers Kerry's proposal on these issues but, big but, this voter prefers Bush's position on terrorism (right or wrong, that's what he/she prefers) and it happens that but this person, terrorism outweights all the other areas, so the person voted Bush.
Does it mean that this person is against gay marriage, or protecting children or whatever? not necessarily, it only means that taking everything into consideration, he/she considered Bush was a better choice.
This is the problem with all arguments on this board, especially those carried on by the "intellectuals", it's black and white, there are no grays, they criticize Bush but they are just like him, you are with me or you are against me.
Didn't you ever think that many Bush supporters could disagree with Kerry's supporters on terrorism but agree on stem cells research? the position of some posters (not necessarily you) is, fuck off, you voted Bush, burn in hell.
Bush is the president and you have to deal with it but, maybe even among Bush supporters there are some people that don't agree with some of his policies, maybe those who supported Kerry could look into trying to be the best out of this and work in the areas of common interest instead of breaking all the links because of disagreements in other areas.
