Unfortunately, I think the Republican Party at large lacks the ability for empathy. This was evident during the first of two SC debates when the crowd was heard booing Dr. Paul when he suggested applying the golden rule to our foreign policy. Is this idea so radical? Are we not a Christian Nation founded on Christianity's principles? What the hell is going on in this country? Why are we in such a rush to go to war? These are questions that Americans would benefit from answering for themselves.
