    long term they might be correct. Being a fiscal conservative shouldn't force you to vote for a religious candidate

    Trump is not running as a Christian Conservative. All he's basically said in reference to that is "I won't let them fuck with you".

    this is true. And it's a perfectly reasonable middle position.

    The only problem is that the liberals believe that the party should basically dump any and all positions that appeal to conservatives. They must stop fighting for gun rights, religion, pro life and so on.

    I think religion shouldn't be an election issue (and I'm a church going Catholic). We need leaders who will balance the books and help to create a more just society. Couldn't care less what God, if any, they pray to.

    I'm not religious at all.

    However, I don't give a shit if Republicans talk about their faith as long as they don't want to force it anyone.

    As a fringe Christian I say that more people need religion these days than don't. And it pains me to say that.

    The youth of today is opting for "spiritual" rather than "religious". God help us all.

    Seems like politicians today get boos or put down when they talk about God unless its the Islamic God. Christian or Jewish its get lost. Hell Bernie threw Israel under the bus and he's a member. Since the Jerry Falwell days the Christian evangelicals have incorporated right wing views in their Sunday services. John Hagee is now Falwells defacto replacement but he looks like he's going to drop soon. There's a lot more and mostly on TV and their ratings are good. I like them because they all support Israel more than the current USA government.

    I don't think it should be part of the election cycle, and that comes from a guy that goes to church (but I go because I like it, not sure how much a believer I am).

    I have always felt that the Republican party made a fundamental long term error hitching it's wagon to the Evangelical movement.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
