The text does not appear, but the intent does. It's clearly expressed in the 1st Amendment, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof".

And the SCOTUS seem to agree in Thomas Jefferson's principle of Separation of Church & State.
see: McCollum v Board of Ed.
see: Stone v Graham

Here is Mitch McConnell stating the top priority. Shouldn't the top priority be fixing the economy, creating jobs, etc.?

How could they block anything the first two years when the Dems had both houses?

By using a record number of filibusters to drag everything out. Yep, that's the GOP working for themselves instead of working to get something done.

Fixing the economy is the top priority, and the best starting place to accomplish that is to remove Obama from office.

Actually they should be working on getting business done rather than being jerks and refusing to do anything. That is what they were elected for.

Actually, in 2010 they were elected precisely to stop Obama from enacting his anti-growth wish list...among which was Obamacare.

After all, that's what the overriding theme of the midterms was. Heck, Scott Brown owes his seat to this very sentiment.

The liberals have done plenty wrong. No one here thinks the Republicans can do any wrong.

No one here? I could copy and paste one after another but then you would make up another excuse. If that's the case you guys might as well give up and go back to the DU.

So, what do you think the Republicans have done wrong?

Just because I'm really dissatisfied with the "Grand" Old Party, what makes you think I came from DU?

And that is what's wrong with politicians in America these days.

Its not about the greater good of America, and reaching a mutual beneficial compromise between schools of though and political parties.

Its about getting re-elected and about sucking up to the fringe of your party for more money.

Both sides are guilty of it, and that is why this country is doomed.

You are quoting a standard Democrat talking point.

The problem is there is no meeting in the middle. Obama is just too far left. He will not compromise with the Republicans.

Obama does not understand our system of checks and balances.

“I Won” is what he said.

Carter lead Reagan in the polls right up until election day. However, Reagan won in a landslide. I feel this is the case now.

I'm voting Romney, simply because the USA cannot withstand 4 more years of bama...

I vote for the candidate who can help save my country, the
sitting Prez. is not that person.
The media and others have folks chasing their tails, who's for the rich, who's the best dad, who gives the most to charity, blah! blah! blah!. I don't give a rat's behind, I care who can restore and save America, and that's not the sitting Prez.. He's had his chance and he royally messed it up. It's not Bush's fault and you can't have another try or do over.
If we actually get out and vote. I have known people who talk and then do not vote. I don't see how you can do that after FL in 2000. The TV Media suppressed the Panhandle votes by calling the state at 8 pm eastern.

Please vote! It's that important!

Reagan had charisma and popularity. Romney does not. He might still win, but not like Reagan. The whole republican party still misses him.

A lot of people understand that a very big part of the reason "many" people hate Obama is straight up racism, masquerading in public as conservatism.

Romney

Will lose you are kidding yourself if you honestly believe he is a conservative, look at what he did and said as Governor, see for your self. Google it, YouTube it For yourself Romney and Obama are one in the same, the only difference is you see Obama coming.
