Half Of Americans Want Warlike Religious President

The Pew Center for Religion and Public Life just came out with the results of a survey that glances across some trends relating to the collision of Americans’ religious attitudes and 2016 presidential politics. Among the results of the survey is the finding that:

– 50 percent of Americans would prefer the next President to have been trained to kill through military training
– 51 percent of Americans would prefer that the next President to believe in God – the divinity claimed by Jewish and Christian monotheists

What would be fascinating would be an analysis from Pew to determine the degree to which these two groups coincide. That analysis has not been performed, but the Pew analysis did indicate that 27 percent more Protestants than religious unaffiliated Americans regard military training in violence as a positive presidential characteristic.

Religion of peace, huh?

Christianity and military training

    People keep falling for the same bullshit time and time again, wondering why things don’t improve. Well they DO improve if you’re one of the 1%, since the government isn’t broken – it’s FIXED, for THEM!

    Truly, who needs bread and circuses when you have the assortment of clowns and contortionists that are running for the White House?

    No matter who wins the presidential election come November, it’s a sure bet that the losers will be the American people.

    The factors that come into play concerning the response of American voters show that the time is ripe for this reaction. The government is not “broken”. That is a clever catch phrase that politicians use for political purposes – and the politicians are not “broke”. The politicians and their cronies, friends, associates, and other beneficiaries are filthy rich. The American people have been milked for decades by the American Congress and departments which “govern” them.

    The American people are deceived, not stupid. They know they are being railroaded, and now the very forces that once protected their liberties, freedoms, are turning against them. They know that they are rapidly losing the ability to control any part of their lives, that their once great nation is now being controlled by the very corrupt people they had hoped would never take over the proud new nation that fought for the freedom from Tyranny.
