Razrback11, in a book of Thomas Jefferson's writings, Jefferson goes into quite some detail, not just on the Treaty of Tripoli, but on WHY we are not a Christian nation. ( He also explains how England would keep up the slave trade when most Americans were against it).
I cannot usually feel ok with voting Republican, not just because of religion, but because they, like the Left, wanna tell me how to live my life when there are no 'externalities' (harm to others/environment). Also, I feel that most Republican politians are in bed with the large corporations and could truly care less about the Average Joe. I don't believe in handouts to either the commoner nor the corporations.
