Cheating on Family Values? When Republicans Unbutton

    Republican politicians must stop running on platforms of family values until the majority of family value Republicans stop having sex affairs. These range from simple affairs all the way to Larry Craig of Idaho attempting to arrange gay sex from an undercover police officer in an airport bathroom. More recently, John Edwards of North Carolina used donated campaign funds to pay off his mistress. Edwards faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $1.5 million. Other than his illegal actions, his mistake is much more forgivable than many Republicans. This is due to the fact that he does not espouse family value policies and chooses to promote human rights instead. This means he is not a hypocrite, just a criminal.
    If you are unaware, the main precepts of family value politicians include not cheating on a spouse, being radically anti-abortion, anti-women's rights and anti-homosexual. So until they can at least live up to their beliefs they should be adults and end criticizing others. This is not to say they are moral beacons, but more to say they should practice what they preach. Then, when they fully believe and act in such ways, I can reject their philosophy. Until then it is off the table; and they must keep it to themselves!
