yes we can!

I have always found it odd when surfers are conservative. The environment and oceans,not a GOP strong point, to say the least. A stronger middle class, since they are the vast majority of surfers, not a GOP strong point. Radical beliefs in terms of birth control, guns, and an anti-labor movement, those are the GOP strong points. As the wealth gap widens in our country, I find it strange that middle class people support the people whose policies it is to make that gap even larger. A standardized system in which anyone can achieve health insurance? No... that sounds fishy! Instead we will play on the fears, mainly to do with religion, of the masses and convince them that wealthy upper class people with a history of self service are the best leaders based on the fact that we thump the bible, which says quite clearly we are never going to be a true disciple with all this greed and lying.

"...I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
-The Bible by God. I too ride bikes and go to church from time to time and enjoy cars, surfing, etc. However, the point I was trying to make was that I find it odd, regardless of religion, why people who have a modest income, myself included, support policies for the wealthy. Jesus was a man who consistantly preached peace, charity and equality, all things the current GOP strays so far away from. I truly was asking a question without it being insidious. Guns, no problem for me or most I know. I don't fit in any particular political niche, nor do most people. As a surfer and worker, clean water and the ability to be treated with equality both personally and professionally are my two biggest concerns. The GOP just does not care about the things most people I surround myself with, most of whom surf, care about. BTW wrong kind of "there", it should be "their."
