At least he HONEST! Something we haven't seen much of in Washington or politics! I'd vote for him! He spoke his mind, without running it through the "politically correct Police" first.
The biggest danger to this country is not the illegal immigrants sneaking into the U.S., but the white supremacists who are already here. If we could herd you all together, and dump you on some remote island, we would have an America to be proud of.

Blacks, Latinos and other minorities combined make up almost half of the population. Then combine that with liberal-progressive and Independent Whites who despise racist and ignorant right-winger; and thatís a strong majority of voters, and we are watching.
These bigoted right-wing tea-baggers will learn in November that hate does not a mid-term electoral victory make.
Wow, what an open-minded liberal you are. You sound just like the the subject of this article.

I really don't people who are racist toward Indians. They value family, intelligence and spiritual well being, and they cook some bad a$$ food.

Yet another open-minded liberal. There are fringe racist idiots in all races, not just white. But I see your agenda.

I agree that there are fringe racists in all races, but boy, if you want to find the bulk of them, look no further than the Republican party, and their mentally challenged comrades, the teabaggers.

By the way, Les. What is my agenda?
