I wonder if the process works in reverse?
since you are more ethical, you might be doomed to the lower social ranks.

I think modern research has just verified part of the Gospel:

"Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

It was recently revealed that over the past two years Romney has given 16% of his income to charity where as Biden has given $369.00.

I think the more ethical you are whether rich or poor makes you happier with what you have. I think more recent events show that liberals want handouts, favor socialism, thinking that they'll get what I have when the reverse is more likely. How many millionaires are there under socialism? That's the real 1% if you ask me.

I did a medical missionary trip years ago, those people were so very, very poor, but you know they were among the most happiest people that I have ever met. Their desires were to be fed, housed and loved by their families.

I probably fall within the upper middle class, we're very tight with our money, watch our expenses, live within our means or atleast try to. I don't want what my neighbors have because I've heard their fights. She wanted this huge house, they're having trouble paying bills. He wants to sell, she threatens to leave. They voted for the current guy in the white house, I didn't, they want to re-finance, they're under water. We tithe, they don't, my neighbors won't even buy girl scout cookies.

Gee, make sense out of that

as with any statistical studies the results don't apply to individuals but to a group.

Jayne, bodybuilder, Obama (He's just "uppity", right?) are the exceptions. (Romney just paid on what was taxable; another reason to have those deductions!)

Republicans & Scott Walker ....
not so much.

bronco's just watchin'...
probably gets purgatory or limbo.

And yes, I watch and I eat popcorn and no soda, just water or lemonade.....

To be honest, I could sit and listen to people argue and talk politics all day.. Adventually it leeds to name calling, smack or what ever they call it now days... Heck its free entertainment......lol.

I dont usually comment, its safer.... To me its not weather your a D or a R or how you repent your sins, god will be the judge in the end.. I would give my shirt off my back if someone needed it, and not expect the same... All politicians are crooks...
But you see Bronco thats not the thing 1171 is bored and wants to fuss......must be that time of the month....
........I love cats, I just cant eat a whole one by myself......

Leads to name calling, people getting peeved, people leaving. Which is why this forum has leaned away from politics.

I think this topic would of been better as a poll. Not so obviously leaning in a certain direction.

Yes I'm very conservative, if there was a listing for ultra conservative you'd find my name. Giving should come from the heart not forced. What makes this country great is the ability of anyone with a dream to achieve they can do it. Europe, Canada, South America, very few qualify to go to college. Yes, it's free, but here, make the grades and you can go. Sure you pay it back, because nothing in life should be handed to you.
actually my point of discussion was: the Republican Party today is more prone to unethical behavior as it's policies and platform supports those higher on the social ladder.
and it has been shown that high social status predicts self-interest behavior and more wrong-doing.

but maybe you are ok with that. maybe that's what you want out of your government and political leaders:
more unethical behavior and wrong-doing.
and you are on the right track supporting Republican candidates.

It's a shame that "moderate" republicans like Olympia Snow feel unwelcome in your new Republican party.

I have no doubt that the majority of American voters do not want more unethical politicians and will not elect a Republican President in this election and will turn out a number of republican office holders.

Actually i think most voters label these traits as "crazy" and are becoming sufficiently scared to move further away from letting them in positions of political leadership.
...not that it will stop them from continuing to ZOMBIE walk in front of the media.
Dawn of the Dead II starring the very scary: Newt, Perry, Bachman, Santorum, and Cain

It maybe good entertainment but not so good at selecting leaders.

This will be my last comment on this subject and 1171, you can take it anyway you want. Because obviously I'M UNETHICAL..

1171 you must have brown eyes because you're full of manure.

REALLY? You ever heard of Blagojevich? US Rep William Jefferson? John Edwards? Weiner? Cisneros? Hastings? Rostenkowski?

Republicans have their scumbags too, but if you believe the Democrats have the moral high ground on ethical behavior, you are not paying attention.
I was wondering if you would say anything.....I was of the opinion 1171 was either very bored or wanted to make sure politics was banned before the elections got into full swing...since things were staying fairly tame here but then there is only one person fool enough to stand and say they would vote for Obama again...ROFLMAO in the Fla sunshine
