    maybe when they're young and the first time they lie they felt badly about it.  But you'd be surprised how quickly you can train yourself to ignore that feeling until you stop feeling it entirely.

    I stole a cheap ring from a fellow student in the 4th or 5th grade, and I felt so badly about it I havne't stolen anything since.  Recently I bought some lumber and I only got charged for one plank out of 6, I felt so guilty when I discovered the error I drove back to pay for the other 5 planks.  My husband thought I was crazy.

    Everyone lies and steals in the course of their life, it's what you do after that first time that defines who you become as a person.  But there are some people and some families who will teach their children to be like they are, whether it be to lie freely or to never lie.  Whether it be to take responsibility for their actions or always blame others for their misfortunes.  Whether it be to exploit others for their own gain, or to give selflessly of one's self for the gain of others.

    It's all well and good to point at republicans and declare them to be morally inferior, but understand that kind of behavior is not born, it's cultivated (whether by themselves or their families).

    You are entitled to express your opinion. But you are NOT entitled to agreement.
