A Few Questions For Conservatives To Kick Off 2015

Questions

Why…

– when gas prices go up, do you blame President Obama but when they go down, you are either quiet and do not give him credit OR you say low gas prices are bad for the economy (after you posted memes earlier about the perils of high gas prices)?

– do you think it’s perfectly natural and okay when the retired neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson, says he talks to God and says he feels God’s “fingers” urging him to run for prez, but when President Obama does something that is legally within his power as POTUS, you insist that he thinks he’s God, or a king or a dictator? (If you are quick to point out that he has broken the law, please provide a nonpartisan link as proof.) The opinions of FOX “News”, Breitbart and Young Cons do not serve as credible proof, so please don’t waste your time with any of those those links. And to be fair, I‘m not saying that I’ll only accept MSNBC links, so no need to bother with making that claim to derail the conversation. Just a good, solid nonpartisan source that is established and credible. A partisan link that includes a video or audio providing proof will also be acceptable.

– when presented with credible, nonpartisan source links to back up an argument,  why do many of you ask “Do you believe everything you read on the Internet?” – I’ll just answer that now, in case: No. I don’t believe everything I read on the Internet. I believe credible nonpartisan sources and/or anyone who can prove they are correct with irrefutable proof – such as an audio or video clip.

– do you say you are against big government but you are completely okay with evangelical extremists who want to regulate your sex life? For instance, many conservatives voted for  Republican Ken Cuccinelli of Virginia and he wanted to outlaw sodomy! Why do you care what other people do in their own bedrooms…or living rooms…or on the kitchen table….?

Bonus questions:

If you are against marriage equality, please provide proof that a gay marriage will have any negative or harmful effect on you, your life or your marriage. And also, explain how government interference with marriage is “small government.”

For the Constitution lovers – why are you okay with religion (Christianity) injected into lawmaking when the First Amendment of the Constitution clearly states:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

If you are okay with Christianity injected into lawmaking, would I be correct in assuming that we can also inject Islamic or Jewish beliefs? Of course, this is a purely hypothetical question considering the First Amendment.

It would be fantastic if you reply – but only if you can make your case without vitriol or name-calling.
