While I completely disagree with the implication that Theocracy is the basis of "good government" the rest makes a lot of sence. Being an Athiest myself, I do not have a belief in God to root my values, but I do have a belief in myself. I think I'm much more centered in reality than most of the Left Wing Hedionists or the Right Wing Moralists, probably because I don't take things as seriously as both groups would like to force me to be.
While I would fight and die for this country, I've also seen over the years the direction that the government is taking us: how many freedoms are being ripped from us, how some are so willing to let those freedom go for the false sence of security. I've said for years, and will continue to say untill people wake up and smell the pile they've been led to stand in, that we no longer live in the USA...it's getting closer to the USSA every day we allow the Democrats and Republicans to grow Big Brother.
Exellent thread BTW!
