Unfortunately, I think most people will let him destroy the country first because they are so blind!

there needs to be a balance between the two viewpoints. humans are not the most important, and earth is not the most important. they are both equally important because they are both dependent on each other. without one the other would not exist. environmentalists should realize that using up a planet's resources and destroying it a bit is not necessarily a bad thing. on the flip-side of that, people should also realize that we cannot keep needlessly abusing the earth for stupid reasons because human beings will die as a species if we continue to destroy the earth. it's all about a balance.
The little arrows you made reminded me that I needed to upload a new "smilie": :previous:

Even from a Christian standpoint of putting human beings first. We do have to remember that GOD put us on this Earth as caretakers. We are to have dominion over the Earth, but that doesn't mean it's okay to exploit it for our selfish gains, it means that we have a huge responsibility to take care of GOD's creation.

I am praying... that Obama doesn't get his way and/or that he receives a major wake-up call. When a socialist nation like Sweden refuses to bailout their own companies and a country like the Czech Republic tells us that the road we are on will only lead to death, then you just have to wonder exactly what is wrong with the Obama administration if they really believe these policies will work when they NEVER have in the past.

I am not taking a political stand on either side at this point. I am losing faith in both parties or all parties. I am over the attacks on both. I find it lame and I am just praying that he can make better decisions for our country...

God has given man dominion over the land. So we should be good stewards but not worshipers of it. We both need each other and that is the way God made it plain and simple. But to dream up false ideals of granger such as the tree huggers have is ridiculuos. Not to mention tax us for it and force more folks to loose their jobs. Religion has nothing to do with it. Man and his science fiction has gone to far.

Both [parties are a joke and we need either a third party or welcome more socialism. We are really a one party system with two ugly heads. People need to stop looking to Government and look to Jesus.
