[QUOTE=Stan;1417984]Oh please Mr. Smart One, give me a chance. Show me the path to enlightenment.[/QUOTE

No path to enlightment. It was my experience with the recent election that most Republican arguements were very narrow-minded. My three biggest issues:
1. Obama is Black and blacks are only excited because it ensures they will be able to stay on Welfare. Why not take the positive route and allow Obama to be an example for people of all races, that no matter your background, you can achieve anything you want.
2. Obama is a Muslim and therefore will open the way for either an invasion by Muslim terrorist or will make the US a Muslim nation. These same people argue he will also take away our right to bear arms. If Obama was in fact a Muslim, how can you argue that he is NOT entilted to practice any Religion he wishes protected by the First Amendment and then claim he will take away our Second Amendment rights which also needs protecting? The President does not and will never have that power. Any change of the Constitution can only be made by Congress (only the 21st Amendment has) or by the states and at that point and time its becomes the will of the people.
3. Obama is in fact the Anti-Christ. As a Christian I find this notion ridiculous. Anyone that has read the Bible knows that NO ONE will be able to predict who the Anti-Christ is. Also, as a Christian, what would be the issue with the arrival of the Anti-Christ? Is that not what we're all waiting for?? Let the Anti-Christ arrive, prove all the nay-sayers wrong and let the meek inherit the Earth!
What I find the most interesting about everything are the changes in politics (way outside the realm of the Pub, my apologies) and the fact that the Republican Party was created out of the Abolitionist movement of the 1850s and that Southern Democrats after the Civil War and Northern Democrats after WWI (and Southern Democrats still) were the leaders of the KKK/able to maintain control over blacks after Reconstruction.
Now, the GOP is more anti-Black/racially motivated and the Democratic Party more welcoming to people of all types. Republicans are Pro-Constitution, as long as it keeps the status quo. This is the same party that passed the 13th (end of slavery), 14th (equal protection under the law), 15th Amendments (black men the right to vote) which was anything but keeping the status quo.
And just so you do not think I am some "whack-out" Democrat, I helped put George HW. Bush and George W. Bush in office and I would have voted Republican this year IF I believed McCain was capable of breaking out of W's mold; I just did not believe it was possible. If Obama does not meet my expectations, I will be sure to be looking at both candidates, regardless of their party, how many Republicans can make that claim? Perhaps that's my real point in all of this...Damn that was a waste of a half hour...

Should we also require those who post in there to have a bachelor's degree Kelly?

What motivates the Republicans has nothing to do with race, it just happens they are against what a certain race thinks they deserve....special treatment and freebies. So since the Republicans won't come out and kiss any specific color of ass, they are now racially motivated?

my college roomate pulled a subframe bolt on his escort and some sort of liquid dribbled out (he assumed it was oil) he figured he had sufficently drained the oil so he went about putting 4 fresh quarts in.

When I got to it, it was slightly overfilled

"it just happens they are against what a certain race thinks they deserve" says it all to me. If you argued that they are against what lazy-asses of all races think they deserve then I would not see a racial aspect to the Republican party.
My post became a lesson in History. I know not all Republicans are racist, nor is the the leadership of the party openingly/blatanly anti-anything, however, I feel that today's average Republican is becoming more and more like yesterday's Southern Democrat. Democrats today are more likely to vote for a more diverse candidate and not use that diversity against him/her. In the past it would have been the Republicans to do that.
It also has nothing to do with kissing any specific color of ass, it has to do with recognizing the diversity of this country.

I think when he made the comment about "certain races" it was in reference to how strong (and extreemly racist) the vocal black leadership (and wanna be's like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc) can be.

I will say this: I have strong racial tendencies because of my cop dad and cop grandfather. I really don't want to think like I do but when I witness racism under the banner of equality, it just reinforces my opinion.

I can totally agree with this. Punishing a race to make things equal is definitely racism and there are reasons why Obama distanced himself from the likes of Jackson and Sharpton...
