Every answer here assumes that a hub poster who disallows comments is censoring. Where do you see in Hubpages that this is a topic board for opposing discussions? If you want flaming arguments that go on for weeks or months go to Topix.
HubPages is meant as a forum to express views in one's own Hub and for readers to learn something - not argue with it. Any blogger on any blog service has the option to approve or disapprove comments that are unacceptable to the blog author and HubPages is no different.
As for conservatives and Tea Party members being closed-minded - give me a break. The truth is that Congressional Liberals have ignored all Conservative ideas and bills then voted 100% for their own agendas - and the Conservative American majority is sick of it.
Lying, cheating, corrupt, two-faced, self-engrossed, Liberal officials you support are responsible for 100% censorship of Conservatism in government.
As far as Liberals providing equality and social justice - are you kidding? Nothing could be further from the truth. Liberals USE blacks in America to their own benefit. Jesse Jackson uses his own people to create a million dollar income for himself. You were USED to elect a corrupt, Chicago-thug style, Socialist, Muslim pretending to be a Christian, two-faced liar who was groomed by extreme radicals and Mafia-type organized crime to provide wealth and connections for corporations, lawyers, unions, and lobbyists.
Obama turns on the Ebonics and pentecostal preacher charm to USE you while he leads our country into bankruptcy. Obama is NOT one of you.
Those surrounding Obama in his "administration," as well as he and his own wife, are reaping multi-million dollar rewards, pulling corrupt favorites into government, and repaying political supporters. You are being suckered by those who pretend to be your friends as they tell you Conservatives are the rich fat cats. George Soros? Oprah? Liberal rich fat cats!
I can only hope the Tea Party can take Congress in 2012 so we can save our country.
