Is it better to have an unabashed liberal elected who speakes his mind, or a moderate who is willing to comprimise?!?
Have fun!!! :P

I'm better than both of them.

A moderate who is willing to compromise. Generally, they still have a better head on their shoulders than a liberal.

Is it better to be dead as a result of being stabbed or shot? Does it really matter you are dead either way. Similarly, does it matter whether conservative values aka living natural law aka living living God's law aka truth aka virtue aka what this country was founded on aka what makes this country great aka etc(I could go on for almost forever) are betrayed and compromised away by a "moderate" or completely ignored by a liberal; either way you don't have conservative values being practiced and therefore you have a country in need of being brought back to the correct governance, the way it was founded. period.
Also, about the moderate who would seem to be at least "better" than the utterly detestable liberal: it says somewhere in the big bible on the bookshelf something about "be hot or cold, but don't be lukewarm or I will spit you out."

You know a liberal will be making a full out attack on the country, but a moderate will sneak up and stab it in the back. Same result.

Great job so far guys! LOL I agree with Parquest. I just wanted to post something that would start discussions! :D

Yes, exactly Paul. That what the SUM guys actually talked about at their meeting last Friday. We wanted to start seeing some good discussion on here. Thus our resolution was to make one serious post on here each day and hopefully we will get into some very deep discussions here.
Also, great response Alex.
But, it seems that you can't find a "good conservative" politician anymore. They are far and few. It seems the facts are that people in this country are going to elect a liberal or a conservative who compromise. So after making your own judgment about these two types of people, you vote for the lesser of the two evils. If I am correct, the church tells us that when you vote, you may not have an upstanding conservative who does not compromise, thus you would have to vote for the lesser of the two evils.
P.S. Btw, in case none of you have figured it out yet, I do not endorse the posts I have written about this topic. I am posting more from the other viewpoint side in order to get the dicussion rolling, and to learn anything I can from this discussion in order to reinforced my Catholic faith even stronger.

Who is the "Black" Pope? (I know... it's a really interesting topic for discussion though)

Ummm... Was he a really bad Pope from the Renaissance Period? Don't know a name.

no, not at all. Any other thoughts? :)
