    Democrats more likely to believe in ghosts

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/blogs/beltway-confidential/New-study-More-Democrats-than-Republicans-believe-in-ghosts-talking-with-the-dead-fortunetellers-79162197.html

    "Conservatives and Republicans report fewer experiences than liberals or Democrats communicating with the dead, seeing ghosts and consulting fortunetellers or psychics," a new Pew study says. For example, eleven percent of Republicans say they have seen a ghost, while 21 percent of Democrats say so....
    Liberal wackjobs, unite! Many liberals may well have consulted with Casper the Friendly Ghost, or a fortuneteller, on their belief that the government taking over Health Care will increase efficiency and cut costs..

    Since 30 percent of Democrats believe in spiritual energy, there may be a new alternative energy source available; the liberal brain at work, hallucinating....)

    Never heard those words used together.. "Democrat brain" and .. "working".

    This Christmas (screew PC talk) you will be visited by three ghosts:

    The ghost of tax rates past
    The ghost of bailout present
    The ghost of healthcare costs future

    This could be considered a new form of birth control.. who would conceive children so they can bear the burden of todays executive socialist decisions?

    Boy are you splitting hairs.  But you want to talk about beliefs?  OK.  The Creationism Museum in Kentucky is based on the fact that the Earth is only 6000 years old.  They have displays showing Adam and Eve frolicking with dinasaurs.   And Cain and Abel playing with the baby dinasaurs which have saddles on.

    I'd much rather deal with someone who questions spirituality than some fool who finds it necessary to write dinasaurs into their religious Biblical myths.

    Bush believed he was doing gods work. After all, god put him in office.

    Bush said to James Robinson: 'I feel like God wants me to run for President. I can't explain it, but I sense my country is going to need me. Something is going to happen... I know it won't be easy on me or my family, but God wants me to do it.'

    In any event it is clearly better to beleive in an eternal, omnipotent, space man who occaisionally sends his human son (born without the aid of conventional sex) to earth to teach and lecture on the ways of the aforementioned space man and then later to kick much butt and take many names for a thousand years than it is to beleive that ghosts might exist.  So an undead zombie who happens to be the son of god is okay is what one could conclude from this stupid (oh so stupid as SaPa might say) thread. 

    I don't beleive in ghosts as I think most people experience paranormal activity out of a longing to be with loved ones who have passed, or are filling a knowledge gap relative to where we as people come from (and where go when its all over) and apparitions oddly enough give some comfort that we won't just become fertilizer.  The other people who expereince paranormal activity are liars and con artists trying to exploit the weakness of others. 

    Not coincidentally, I feel roughly the same way about religion.

     George Bush saying that God wanted him to run for President does sound a bit arrogant, no doubt.  
    Yet George Bush by all acounts was a genuinely humble man (for good reason, say his critics), who did not fill his speeches with self-aggrandizing "I" s.

    Unlike the current occupant of the White House, whose ego is apparently bigger than a "B+" .

    I can only hope that you posted this load of malarkey in jest, because anyone posting something crap like this from a Conservative rag that makes claims over some supposed study done to discredit Liberals either has to be really stupid or have a sense of humor.

    And don't forget, more Conservative and Republicans believe that earth is only 6,000 years old, humans lived with dinosaurs (yes friends, they believe the Flintstones are documentary) and the earth was made in just 6 days.

    Compared to that, ghosts sound down right reasonable.

    What evidence do you have that Bush was humble? The man said that God chose him, that's pretty high yourself if you ask me... Everything he said and did completely refuted that he was a humble man... 

    And further what evidence do you have Obama is not humble? What has he said or done to prove he is not?

    So 21% of dems believe in ghosts while only 11% of rep's do.  How do they really know that?  And more dems believe in spiritual energy?  What is Christanity?  Spiritual vacancy?

    Many people (Rep. and Dem) believe literally in Adam and Eve, Noah's Ark, the parting of the Red Sea and many other myths that can't be proven.  To make a political statement about belief in ghosts is really scraping the bottom of the barrel.  They must be running out of logical arguments.

    If you don't believe that a cracker literally turns in to flesh when you eat it, and that wine turns into blood when you drink it, you can't be Catholic.  This has nothing to do with politics.

    Though Obama's Nobel speech was laudably humble, there are many examples of vanity: Two examples, of many...

    George Will on Olympics speech:
    "In the Niagara of words spoken and written about the Obamas' trip to Copenhagen, too few have been devoted to the words they spoke there. Their separate speeches to the International Olympic Committee were so dreadful, and in such a characteristic way, that they might be symptomatic of something that has serious implications for American governance.

    "Both Obamas gave heartfelt speeches about themselves. ....Obama quickly returned to speaking about . . . himself:

    "Nearly one year ago, on a clear November night, people from every corner of the world gathered in the city of Chicago or in front of their televisions to watch the results of the U.S. presidential election. Their interest wasn't about me as an individual. Rather . . ."

    It was gallant of the president to say to the Olympic committee that Michelle is "a pretty big selling point for the city." Gallant, but obviously untrue....
     
    Obama video speech on aniversary of fall of berlin wall:

    "Even in a two-and-a-half minute speech about an event as epochal as the fall of the Wall, somehow he finds a way to make it about him:

    “Few would have foreseen … that a united Germany would be led by a woman from Brandenburg or that their American ally would be led by a man of African descent. But human destiny is what human beings make of it,” Obama said.

    Skip ahead to 4:30 or so of the Russia Today clip to watch Hillary introduce him as “someone who represents the fall of different kinds of walls.” Even here, history is a handmaiden to The One’s grandeur."

    I wonder if Reagan believed in ghosts.  His wife did consult astrologers.  I guess they must fit into the looney leftist fringe.

    I don't think anyone can or does run for, much less win, the POTUS without a huge and profound conviction of how wonderful they themselves are.  That includes being able to perceive the will if not the mind of God.

    If the will of God is to love your neighbor, don't be judgemental, don't covet your neigbor's property, don't throw stones, any of Christ's teachings, etc.,  then we haven't seen a president act Godly for a long, long time.  What part of the will and mind of God do you think they have been honoring?

    I think more than a few members of the G.O.P. seek guidance from the ghost of Reagan.  I am sure a substantial minority hope his ghost will inhabit a human vessel and give them a sense of purpose and direction again.

    While it's the most powerful and prestigious job in the world, when you get down to it it's still just a job.
