Also you can sure as hell bet if Cain had a (D) next to his name, the right wing goons would have had the pitchforks and torches out in full force.
**gasp** You just figured out politics, good for you!!!

The left back stabbed Cain?? I think you are the first one to come up with that theory. Even if what you say is true, that the left time traveled to 15 years ago and planted false allegations of harrassment, it was not up to the left to determine who the GOP nominee would be. The GOP voters decided whether Cain was worthy or not. Unless you claim that GOP primary voters are predominately left wing.

Yep, I seriously believe Republicans aren't racist.

Liberals assume they are as if it is an axiomatic truth and you must be a racist yourself or a fool if you don't believe it. It's just official liberal belief from which you are not allowed to dissent. But when you go for empirical evidence of racism, there isn't any.

Your contention that asking someone to prove their identity is the same as having them pass an examination is patently ridiculous. You talk about living in a fantasy land and then you try to say passing a literacy test is the same thing as handing over a photo ID. Hey if showing an ID is the same as taking a test, can I just show my driver's license instead of taking the SAT? You've gone beyond the bounds of rationality.

Seems like some conservatives define it as the complete opposite

Imagine that, different people defining something differently. We should document this, I can't imagine it's ever happened before.

What I find odd is that people apparently recognize that, but then fail to see how their actions impact others living in other countries.

All people are basically conservative to some degree. They do not handle change well, and when changed is rammed down their throats, they react negatively.

Some of the Islamic groups are doing exactly that, lashing out because the US is ripping apart the fabric of their world by ramming changes to their society down their throats at break-neck speeds.

People in the US are no different. Some actually enjoy change, but the majority don't handle change so well, and the more rapidly change takes place, the more likely they are to dig in and resist.

That's one of the primary differences between Conservatives and Liberals.

It isn't that Conservatives don't like change, they do, but they like it in small doses, where you change something a little bit, then embark on a program of educating, discussing and opening dialog (without getting shouted down) and letting the dust settle a bit before moving on.

Liberals just ram change down everyone's throats: Accept! Obey! and any one who questions it is shouted down and labeled a "_______-phobe" or given some other cute belittling label like "racist" or "bigot" or "intolerant" etc.

Sociologically...

Once again you failed to grasp a simple post. Let me explain it. You accused liberals of labeling Obama critics as extremists, I showed you a post in which Obama supporters were labeled terrorists. Kinda opposes your original post.

Wow, the 37th Nebraska Volunteer Militia is defined by the Southern Poverty Law Center (itself a "hate group),, as a "hate group".

From their website:

"Empowered by the state statutes of Nebraska (55-105/55-106) and the U.S. Constitution, the 37th Nebraska Volunteer Militia is a reserve unit whose purpose is to provide a trained, disciplined, uniformed force to be quickly available in defense of the State in the event of war, insurrection, invasion, disaster, or imminent danger thereof.

It is by order of the Governor of Nebraska, the Commander in Chief of the militia, will the 37th Nebraska Volunteer Militia be mobilized, or by its commanding officers where such missions do not conflict. It is the extended objective of the 37th Nebraska Volunteer Militia to organize members to quickly provide assistance to local civilians in emergency and disastrous situations, to help support the basic needs of those affected.

"
According to Nebraska state statute, all able-bodied citizens between the age of seventeen and sixty are obligated to serve in the Nebraska militia and are bound to service for the State of Nebraska, with few exceptions.

The 37th Nebraska Volunteer Militia is a specific, independent group dedicated to organizing the citizens of the Nebraska militia to be ready for active duty. Obligation of service in the Nebraska militia (also known as "the draft") is dictated by the State of Nebraska, but service in the 37th Nebraska Volunteer Militia is strictly voluntary. "


37th Nebraska Volunteer Militia

I wonder if Gov. Heineman knows he is the head of a "hate group".

Read the Constitution, it makes the President Commander in Chief of the militias. If they are not under his command they would have to be armed enemies. Those that survive the predator drone will at least be spared a trial
