U.S. rate of interracial marriage hits record high
You act as if every single person in the so called "tea party state" is a Republican. Liberals like to use the same argument for the "educated" states and act like ONLY democrats live in a highly educated Massachusetts and ONLY republicans live in a poorly educated state like Mississippi. Or when they try to use the argument that the fattest states are "red states." So there are NO democrats in red states?

And my family is Republican, and my parents are interracial(Dad is white, Mom is Mexican), so its not a democrat or republican thing.

Really? Prove it. Prove you hear that. That someone disagrees with your views doesn't make them close minded. Quite often, I prove that people's ideas are poorly founded and that they're not able to make properly thought out opinions even though I agree with their point.

Perhaps instead of whining about liberals, you should learn to come up with better ideas.

Well 528,260(or 43.5%) of them voted for Obama in 2012, so they are out there.

Liberalism, the mental illness of the century. It should be covered under ObummerCare.
really, its liberals trying to legislate morality ?

Is that why republicans cheer when abortion clinics close, or are against sex ed , or shun those with tattoos , or shame fatherless children ?

43.5. Sorry, I don't think so. What you are saying is that the presidency was close which is was not in Mississippi.

I dont think i have ever seen anyone argue that no Democrats live there, but simply that conservative ideology rules those states.



Lets stop the hyperbole.

The more strident liberals are definitely not tolerant of opposing views.

Just the same, many hardcore conservatives say they want to keep government out of people's lives - but they also support bans on same-sex marriage. Fortunately, I think the more libertarian conservatives are growing in strength and number.

Would anyone claim Christianity is intolerant because they don't allow Satanists to give sermons at church? This premise of the OP is pretty ridiculous.
