Quote# 46185

[on what they would do if elected president]


The Ten Commandments would be posted in every school, court room, prison, and any other place I can think of after I become president.
The Pledge of Allegiance would be recited EVERY morning in every school room, from kindergarten thru college, along with a Bible reading at the start of everyday.
And anyone who didn't like it, could leave the room until it was over. But the atheists and the ones who hate America would no longer tell the rest of us that we could not say the pledge or read the Bible.

Anyone who values an ancient book of legends over our nations sacred constitution should be considered a fucking traitor and hence, wouldnt be elected.

Good thing that you wouldn't have the power to do any of those things as President, anymore than Obama will have the power to arbitrarily ban all prayer and make being Christian illegal.

Except for the Pledge of Allegience, everything else goes counter to the First Amendment.

Sorry, next country please.

If I were elected I'd pull a George Bush and fabricate evidence for why I should have you jailed and executed. The only difference between me and Bush is that I'll be doing some good for this world.

Oh yes we would.

Loudly and often.

If you think living in a theocracy is a good thing, move to Iran for a while and tell me how you like it.

"Good thing that you wouldn't have the power to do any of those things as President, anymore than Obama will have the power to arbitrarily ban all prayer and make being Christian illegal."

Gah, don't perpetuate that crap. As we've seen on this site, some people actually believe that's what he would do.

Correct me if I am wrong (as a non-American, my knowledge of your government is a little lacking, but I'm sure you will forgive that).

1) Wasn't the pledge originally created in the 1950s to help sell flags?
2) The president cannot MAKE domestic policy. He can propose but then the proposal has to go through congress and the senate . He does have veto powers, but that is from stuff coming the other way. But he can make foreign policy.
3) Who the heck is telling you that you cannot read the bible or say the pledge NOW? Just not at school. As I understand your constitution, you can pretty much read whatever you damn well please. So what's the problem?

Sometimes I'm glad that I'm over here.

So, when are you running?

Not that they ever did. And those that hate America are the ones who want to destroy the Constitution. Kind of like an American Taliban who wish to have a theocracy

Yeah but that's illegal. Especially in college, where the government doesn't own us.

This would make everyone Christians? Seeing the ten commandments everywhere wouldn't make me a Christian, it would just make me wonder why you were elected president.

Phillip: nah mate, it was around before that but it was in the fifties that they changed "e plurubus unum" (out of many, one) to "one nation under god. as far as I know. I saw a bit of 'the Wizard of Oz' the other day and the wizard made quite a few references to "the land of e plurubus unum".

Oh, and the American Constitution prohibits the government from proscribing a religion to the public.

Strange, I know close to jack shit about the Australian Constitution, and I don't think we have a bill of rights.

If I were elected President, then every year on the first of June, every man, woman and child would receive fruit cups.

...I don't know, it made slightly more sense than TeachMe's plans.

@Tixylix - 1) Only 1 'l' in Philip (one parent wanted my name to be different. Compromise is great, huh?) ;)

2) No. We don't have a Bill of Rights. We should. I discovered this while investigating my rights to take photos in public (I'm an amateur photographer).

Sometimes I see these fundamentalists, and they scare me. I like visiting the USA. Bt I wouldn't want to live there. The TV evangelists on late Saturday nights is bad enough (shift worker - late night free to air tv sucks).

That's odd, I don't seem to remember the Executive Branch having absolute authority over the other two. Must be another fundy "If I ruled the world I'd show them!" scenario. Dumbass.

it's amazing how "unchristian" they all are: slash foreign aid budgets, slash welfare, watch people dying because they can't get health care, throw out illegal immigrants (despite the fact they're doing the jobs true Americans won't do), return to "Fortress America" (while expecting the world not to take notice.....

They also don't realise that the People's Republic of China OWNS the US in that if it forclosed the debt, the States would be bankrupt.

...and then they go on about how their enemies are like Nazis...

In that case you are a traitor to the USA.
To be quite frank, a handful of religious bigots such us yourself, have had a disproportionately excessive say in the running of this country, and the time is long overdue in redressing the balance.
This country is based on freedom of belief, and not domination by one religion - especially one based on the ramblings of a bunch of ancient goat sodomisers.

Answer: Yes.

Anwer: Yes, but try telling the current Commander-in-Thief that and you'll end up in the Guantanamo Hilton-

3) Who the heck is telling you that you cannot read the bible or say the pledge NOW? Just not at school. As I understand your constitution, you can pretty much read whatever you damn well please. So what's the problem?
Answer: The problem is these followers of biblical goat shaggers see evil in everthing they see. You stand more chance of unringing a bell than get these sanctimonious hypocrites to see other POV's.

Sometimes I'm glad that I'm over here.
Answer: I'd emigrate tomorrow, but at my age (73) it's impractical.

"along with a Bible reading at the start of everyday"

Doesn't sound like a bad idea since some of the garbage that these morons spout prove they've sure as hell never read it yet. Maybe they'll come to realise what load of nonsense it really is.

And those in the schools who aren't your food group of Christianity won't want to hear your rhetoric and dogma.

Swearing an oath to an icon or banner is against your own damned religion, so you should be protesting the pledge of allegiance.

Dear TeachMe,

You forgot to add another thing you would do if elected president: keep the ACLU busy for a long long time!
