    Why do politicians feel the need to bring religion into their campaigns and their 'marketing' of themselves. Personally, I wouldn't vote for any politician who mentions religion. The two should NEVER go together, and my personal opinion is that most politicians do so to get votes and it is so transparent. If they are doing it because they are 'religious' then that too should make alarm bells ring. Anyone with any intelligence knows that organized religion is a money making tool, a business – just ask Bill Maher........I LOVE that guy. I think he should be President.

    Everyone should read the history behind farm subsidies to understand the slippery slope that was created. The logic was totally flawed and has led to an entitlement attitude by not only the agriculture industry, but all other forms of industry that even remotely resemble a commodity based venture. Follow the money and view how we became to be so indebted.

    This is not the first time that Michele Bachmann has been caught in a lie. Her chances of winning the GOP nomination are minimal at best and will diminish with each lie. Something about her is just plain creepy: maybe it was that weird "where is the camera" moment in her response to the state of the union earlier this year. Not sure.
