We were a melting pot. We are becoming a salad bowl.

As long as all in the salad bowl understand American ideals and have a desire to abide by our laws, so be it.

I'm sorry for your ability to understand.

"Liberalism" is a fairly recent phenomenon. It is actually progressivism in disguise and progressivism is communism in disguise.

Everything is for the "good of the people".

For the intellectually dishonest, believe what you want. No matter what evidence one produces that proves the progressive's reasoning behind abortion (which was to get rid of blacks and other undesirables), eugenics, (again to rid the world of blacks and other undesirables) it will not resonate.....the truth is out there.

ALL of the vehicles for change that you mention, except for SS and medicare were driven by the religious.

Remember, "The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr."?

Do you believe he is delusional for saying what he said?

When your politics go against The Constitution of the U.S., there is no place for you in our politics.

If that was the case, then the entire GOP would cease to exist.

Now there is a man that can deliver a speach. I didn't see a teleprompter in the image.
You don't need teleprompter to spew non-sense, hatred and gather idiots around you.

Allen West should be telling that to his fellow Republicans. They are the people socializing America's investment industry with their "too big to fail" bailout policies while continuously cutting their own taxes. They don't care about education so long as they can profit from it and their children, no matter how dumb, can get an Ivy League Degree and a guaranteed income. Indeed, as Mr. West says, they should just get out.
