You assume much! I am speaking a subset of Americans who are fearful, frightened people who cling to their religion and guns for safety and a sense of security.
Yes they do. It's the exact same thing liberals do except they cling to their federal government when in fear. You tell me, which is more dangerous to this country?

If the Republican National Party was not full of hardheaded people and would have embraced Ron Paul's populist ideas and grass roots popularity Obama would most likely lost.

Racism can also include solidarity with your people over others. You know, like opening your mouth about a police officer investigating a black professor because he thought something was suspicious. Or out of all the murders in the US, picking out a person of your race to say "If I had a son, it would look just like Travon" and then allowing your racist AG to send FBI agents to investigate a shooting where no mention of race was involved.
"Solidarity with your own people" is racism? What do you mean about "opening your mouth about a police officer investigating a black professor"? I don't recall Obama saying anything racist about the cop who hassled Professor Gates. He said "The police acted stupidly". I agree. Arresting a man in his own home, who you know is not guilty of a crime? Yes, by any definition, that was an example of police stupidity. And if Obama did have a son, who do you think he would look like? Donald Trump?

You are truly an imbecile.

<quoted text>Your argument is absurd, even by right wing "logic". Since something COULD happen, then we can just act as if it HAS happened. Well, in that case, I'm mad at Rush Limbaugh for going on a shooting spree at a petting zoo and killing 300 chilren, their parents, and several small animals.

What's that? You say, "Wait, that never happened!" Oh, so by your logic, since Limbaugh hasn't done it yet, it can't happen?
THANK YOU! Now, how is that different than the gun control measures you propose, because someone COULD go on a shooting spree?

<quoted text>Over the last 40 years, Conservatism went from a political movement that believed in the Constitution, smaller government, less big brother, and sound fiscal responsibility……to the party of Authoritarian Government dominated by the religious right, the wealthy elite, and fascist corporatists. Few disagree that Barry Goldwater would be utterly disgusted at what modern day Conservatism advocates; less individual freedoms, more big brother, selective adherence to the Constitution, and the kind of reckless spending that would make most democrats blush. And it would appear that more and more true conservatives agree whole-heartedly with Mr. Goldwater. This has left the Republican Party, which owes much of its' success over the last 30 years to its' Conservative base, in a very tough spot, if not completely screwed, as is demonstrated by the all-out civil war that has erupted within the Republican Party during the early stages of the 2008 Presidential Election. Conservatism, having morphed from Goldwater's philosophies into a movement who's agenda panders to religious zealots and the wealthy elite, has completely alienated and angered everyone from traditional conservatives, to Reagan Democrats, to moderate republicans alike, all of whom have watched their beliefs, needs, and priorities take a back seat to the views of far right extremists.

Here is how it is different. Obama taking away everyone's guns COULD happen, but it is unlikely in the extreme. Rush Limbaugh killing 300 children COULD happen, but again, it is unlikely in the extreme.

"Someone" going on a shooting spree? It is not only likely, but as past events have shown, it is almost a certainty. THAT is how it is diffrent. Your argument is like saying that speed limits are not needed just because someone might cause a car crash by speeding.

Apparently! Last time I checked there was no White College Football National Championship, Miss White America, White Entertainment Television...

You agree the police acted stupidly? The professor did what the police officer asked when he asked? He stopped and provided ID immediately upon request? I don't care if the guy was as white as Casper or Powder, if he ignores the commands of the police officer, which is illegal btw, bad things are going to happen.
As far as the Trump statement, being a smart ass doesn't suit you.

But you liberals can't have your cake and eat it too. Liberals often use the same argument in reverse for a reason not to abolish gun free zones, or to state gun nuts are in fear over nothing. In that case the liberals state that the chances of being a victim of a mass shooting are miniscule. Now, you are stating its likely enough to infringe on my second amendment rights.

Ironic, mass shootings are not likely at all, so I don't need to arm myself and should be willing to relinquish my second amendment rights. On the other hand, mass shootings are common, and guns are the reason, so I should be willing to relinquish my second amendment rights. Funny how that works.

No, you are an imbecile because you don't recognize that DumBama never made comments about local cases when it involved a so-called white victim. The only reason he opened up his trap is because they were black people and yes, that is bias.

No bonehead, that was a national event. Of course a President is supposed to comment on a mass murder..... the second worst school shooting in the history of our country.
