      Then they're bigots too. Bigot is not a skin color, a specific gender, or a particular religion. It's a state of mind.

          This is an untrue statement. I'm able to recognize a bigot and I am not one. So please.

      Umm not so much: “This isn’t a wedge issue for blacks with Obama, no matter how much the media would like it to be,’’ says James Petersen, Lehigh University professor of African Studies.

        Exactly what I said. Do you not understand when someone says "so what"?

        It means that it doesn't matter. The political landscape in America is a joke. Too many willful ignorant people voting for the "lessor of two evils", yet fail to realize that they put evil into office regardless of who is elected.

        The fact that the citizens of America fail to realize that government is suppose to be very small and quite a distance from involvement into the average person's life is one of the biggest problems in America.

        Government continues to take steps to eliminate rights of the individuals and the present political landscape in America will continue to support the "status quo".

        The fact that the "status quo" continues to exist is the fault of the citizens inability to recognize equality and equal rights for all who live in this country.

          And therein you shall find the "Great Lie" -

          Government is absolutely not the problem, a falsehood the right wing "Psychopathic Regressionists" like Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor et al continue to peddle - The system of Government as it stands, is absolutely one of the greatest Institutions, Assets & Resources this country has - It distinguishes us from some of the other regions of the world where those who wish to undermine it might find a perfect choice to re-locate permanently -

          Government is and always has been designed to grow with the population to adequately serve it's citizens / constituents via elected officials - Just like the Constitution of the United States has been, and should continue to be expanded upon, modified, and amended to facilitate change and growth -

          We have approximately 2 million hard working Federal workers if my numbers serve me, who's employment will undoubtedly be in jeopardy if the Romneys get their way, who every day administer to citizens, protect citizens, and support citizens life style, and earn an honest paycheck while doing so, unlike Mitt & Company - And that's considered by the majority as a very good thing - Sure there are tweaks needed but adjustments are always applied in every facet of public and private sectors -

          The fact is, many Republicans are not really interested in preserving the expressed word or spirit of constitution per say, but are persistent in pursuing the perversion and or select interpretation of said to their selfish benefit -

          Furthermore, If some absurd thinking Republicans wish to regress back to little house on the prairie where they need to ride a horse 10 days to get medical help, or ride a horse 20 days to run into another human being, or dowse a canine with a few quarts of whiskey as pain killer prior to letting hang over induced "Doc Holliday" yank it using a shaky grip & dull pair of pliers, let them, only let them do so in a place where it will be welcome, and not here in the progressive United States -
