Interesting. I have always been an independent. What you have indicated does confirm some of my thoughts on the Christian Conservatives. I wonder if Theocracy is really not capable of functioning in a Free Enterprise system. It is something to consider. If one could generate proof that it is incompatible, it would be a strong argument from a political stand point.
