"Independent" Because I Have To Be


"Today it isn't another country where citizens are being threatened if they don't agree, it is us. It is what the current administration and their supporters have said over the airwaves, to U.S. citizens that don't agree with them. If we are not for them then we are with the terrorists, essentially calling all American citizens who oppose this administration "terrorists." Not once, not twice, but many times over and over."

A Political Force With Many Philosophies Survey of Independents, Who Could Be Key in 2008, Finds Attitudes From Partisan to Apathetic By Dan Balz and Jon Cohen Washington Post Staff Writers Sunday, July 1, 2007
"Fred Wood, a Marietta, Ohio, retiree, voted for George W. Bush in 2000 and John F. Kerry in 2004. In last year's midterm elections, he voted Republican for Senate and Democratic for governor. Is he on the fence for 2008? "You bet I am!" he said."

"This is the first time we were forced (mandatory meeting) to listen to a speaker that told us how to use religious discussion with our clients. This is very different from a client prompting a religious conversation." By Awakening "Blog Against Theocracy." Sunday, July 01, 2007

Fighting Over The Independent Voter by DemFromCT Sun Jul 01, 2007
From the article: Independents also are more secular than the overall electorate. Four in 10 in the new study would like to see religion have less influence on politics and public life than it does now. Almost a fifth say they have no religion.

FROM BLOG AGAINST THEOCRACY WEBSITE....This is a blogswarm dedicated to the separation of church and state, being held July 1-4, 2007.
The post will be against theocracy, in favor of our Constitutional guarantee of separation of church and state. But there are a LOT of issues tied to this, as is pointed out in the First Freedom First website:

No religious discrimination.
PRO End-of-Life Care (no more Terri Schiavo travesties)
Reproductive health decisions made by individuals, not religious "majorities"
Democracy not Theocracy
Academic Integrity (like, a rock is as old as it is, not as old as the Bible says)
Sound Science (good bye so-called "intelligent" design)
Respect for ALL families (based on love, not sexual orientation. Hellooooo.)
And finally,
The right to worship, OR NOT.

So take your pick and write your post(s). Really, the wider variety of topics makes it all the more interesting.
