Are you trying to racially profile Jesus?
Every representation I've seen of Jesus was of a man with brown hair and eyes. Now, there are people in Israel, in Egypt, in Iran, etc. that have fairer skin and brown hair. They don't all look the same.
And really, who cares what the man looked like. If you follow him, he could turn out to be Samuel L. Jackson and I think you'd still follow him.
Throwin' deadly boomerangs now.
That 6-foot tall white guy with perfectly chiseled abs and facial hair reminiscent of most if not all members of Lynyrd Skynyrd is just an artistic depiction. There are TONS of different looking Jesuses in the catholic religion alone, from your default southern rocker dude to asian and black.
Anyway, I too, smell something epic...
Sorry for the seemingly off-topic post. Back to regular programming.
democrats are way ahead in the poll.
That's because younger people, who make up the majority of our members, tend to have liberal political views, or identify as Democrats. Gallup and Rasmussen should back my statement up if need be.
As my AP Government class would place me, I am moderate. I am Republican on some issues and Demoncratic on others. It's been proven that most Americans today fall in the lines of moderation. It's rare that one finds a complete Republican on all issues and vice versa.
Right now the largest and best vetted polls will show that there are more self-described conservatives in the United States than self-described "liberals"/progressives, and there are more self-described moderates/centrists than either group. This is why doing homework on a subject you want to argue passionately about is important.

American Theocracy - The Peril and Politics of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money in the 21st Century
It is not the most... exciting read. Information heavy and you'll need to pace yourself and dedicate some time to really understanding it (meaning, rereading sections/chapters, employing an army of sticky-notes, etc.). If you have little to no background knowledge in the role of oil and religion on politics, or basic economics, I recommend having a Wiki-like resource available for easy reference.
Eris, the strangeness of most Republican "positions" is partly why I mentioned earlier the fact that this poll on an international forum with a strong international presence is especially meaningless for trying to draw conclusions about American politics. For what it's worth, I don't think it would look very different voting for just the economic policies; I'd wager fewer people here are willing to get down to brass tacks about economics than they are overgeneralized political talking points. The main difference we'd likely see is fewer voters in an already small sample.
independant's cathcing up to democrats. republicans still last.
I have recently transformed into a defender of the mentally ill. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
I'm a psych major who plays with statistics regularly. You could say I'm familiar with the ins and outs of samples and populations. I was trying to make a point without being especially technical.

Psychology is probably a fun major.
The 'ole ins and outs.
One or both of us is a bad man.
That seems pretty fitting. I almost rented that at the store today, but went with Death Note and Clive Barker's Book of Blood instead.
Glenn Beck doesn't care what you think of him. I'm pretty sure he doesn't care what anyone thinks, and says whatever he wants.
I like that about him.
