You did. You essentially said my observations where 100% spot on, but then went on to justify it.

Look. The *leaders* of the GOP are racist women-haters. Your party's platform makes that clear. Put these men into political power and they'll do whatever they want, to whomever they want. They've been doing it for a long time.
What?!?

I don 't think that the syphillis-experiments, etc can be blamed on today's Republican Party. Institutionalized racism transcended party lines.

There is very little difference in the actual behind the scenes "leaders" in both parties. Rich people who can't relate to the concerns of the middle class and seem to care more about how to get re-elected and the needs of the lobbyists than their constituents.

The big difference is in the people who are trying to make big names for themselves. They have to figure out how to distinguish themselves from the *other* party and come up with some wild sound bites (often thanks to some leading or prodding by the media) in the process.

Why are we talking about politics again? Today is Giving Tuesday.

Yes, please. I am unaware of any racist and women-hating platforms of the Republican party. Typical liberal statement. Completely narrow-minded in believing Republicans are pure evil and blind and oblivious to any facts to the contrary.

I wanna hear about specific policies and platforms

It's not my show. I'm an independent. I voted for O'dummy the first time he ran and was a big fan of Clinton.

Making birth control illegal isn't apart of the Republican party platform. You are so misinformed. Ryan sponsored a bill that would outlaw certain types that abort fertilized eggs, but he didn't want to ban all forms of it. I'm also sure a fair amount of religious women don't find that to be a huge assault against women. How nice of you to take the banner for all women, tho, and decide that any law related to women that you don't support is against all women.

You also haven't mentioned how their platform is racist? Let's hear it.

Race even pointed it out to you too.

You are just making personal attacks now, Angela. Good or bad, I don't particularly care what you think of my abilities when it comes to my profession.

Also, that bill Ryan sponsored wasn't intended to be against women or punish women. He and many religious folks believe that life begins when fertilization occurs. This is what motivates them. Not hatred for women. I don't agree with the republican's parties views on this issue, but even I can see it's not about "hating women" that motivates them. It's a gross misrepresentation to characterize it as such.

I think this is a case of if the facts don't support your case, distort, distort, distort.

I just saw that; did not hear about it last year. But we had decided last night that we, as in all 4 of us, would spend some of the money for christmas gifts on a donation of some sort after we got a Heifer International "catalog" yesterday in the mail.

I thought that might be a great idea. The kids love animals after all, and I think they would get how a few farm animals could really help a family. But then I saw where we can buy some guinea pigs for families in Equador - where they use them for protein in their diet.

I think that we'll just stick to goats or chicks or bunnies...

It's how these people think. If you're pro-life, you hate women. Defense of marriage, you're homophobic. Immigration reform, you're a racist... on and on. It's how liberals justify their own short-sightedness.

Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, both candidates for the presidency under your party, support banning birth control. Michele Bachmann has stated this as well. Paul Ryan and Romney both are opposed to free birth control (which has been *proven* to reduce unwanted pregnancies AND abortion rates), or anyone paying for it other than yourself (i.e., shouldn't be covered under employee health plans).

As for the racist policies of our government, NUMEROUS city officials have gone on record for past decisions, *admitting* that freeways and other major infrastructure were purposely done in black neighborhoods, because they didn't have the voting power to stop it.

That's just our government, period, at work. Although, southern Democrats became REpublicans when the Civil Rights Act was passed.

No, the big differences is the Democrats in power would like to help the little guy. The disenfranchised. The middle class. THE GOP has no interest in any of that.

Meanwhile, my party wants to give money away to poor people too lazy to work. We all have our failings, I guess.
