Posting on topix is not tantamount to being the Governor of Texas, you nitwit bigot.

It is apparently tantamount to being the Governor of Alaska, however.

How very stereotypical liberal of you.

You've made my point extremely well, thank you very much.

And all those that thought your reply was brilliant equally share in making my point. My thanks to them as well.

And explain to all how my post makes me a bigot.

According to me a Democrat and a Catholic both are the worst thing for humanity. we should stop breaking the natural rules made by Almighty God.(Jesus was a Lutheran, remember).

1. To explain to the backwards among us: You made some remark about having opinions and posting on topix. I explained in simple language that your dismissible idea about posting on topix doesn't apply to someone like Perry, the Governor of a major, red turning purple state.

The example of Palin suggests that being Governor of Alaska is considerably less taxing than being Governor of Texas, partly because Alaska has such a small population. And because she's such a ditz compared to most Governors.

2. Unlike you I keep track of what people post. You're a racist and a homophobe and an anti Semite, although you like to pretend you are only arguing about issues.

When I call you a racist, etc., I am referencing many of your posts. It doesn't matter if anything about your present post here was racist or not. That's not what determines you're a racist.

What determines you're a racist is posts like the following of yours:

"You sound just like another run of the mill thieving illegal."
topix DOT net/forum/us/republican/TH67N2 IK76A6UHF13/post9

That post obviously characterizes all "illegals" [sic] as thieving. Racist. And that's just one example of your various bigotries and one example of your obvious to everyone but you racism.

According to the buybull you should have your mullah panties in a bunch more over those who covet unrepentantly - as the _Commandments_ direct.

But that's not the case. You by comparison ignore that _Commandment_ and others in favor of your homosexual fixation. This is how we know you are merely rationalizing a psychosexual issue of yours, not following gawd or anything like that. You reprobate rube.

Oh, and homophobia is the mental illness, not variations in sexual orientation.

Rick Perry is a FORMER politician. He's not in office anymore. Who cares what he says about anything ?! He's as relevant as Jimmy ( WHO ?!) Carter is.

And why don't you register ?!

Why do you assume he's a Christian ? According to his post, it is just as likely he is Jewish or Muslim.

And not all Christians, nor all Christian denominations, are anti-gay.

That's just it,I could care less what religion he is but I'm betting he's a Christian but who cares,the bottom line is any organized religion has no business when it comes to a Constitutional question dealing with the rights of all Americans ! Now I'm not saying all Christians are bigots but it seems the majority of Christians on TOPIX are bigoted against gays and completely judgmental A-holes and this guy is one of them ! And again it doesn't matter what religion he is,besides I thought Christians were supposed to judge not lest ye be judged ?

If you are talking about anal or oral sex, that would mean he is stopping his entire constituency.

I see your "pray away the gay" conversion therapy isn't working out too well for you is it. How many hours a day does your therapy require you to harass homosexuals with insults and lies?

You were just as wrong and just as stupid as you were when you first said that with the typo. Most of the people here are not as stupid as you are and knew it was a typo. You are a 100%[1005] moron.

Republicans just dig that hole a bit deeper every time they open their mouths. They can't mount a decent defense for their decisions, so they just make up stuff as they go. Maybe all republicans are stupid enough to believe their BS, but they rest of us aren't. Stupid is as stupid does.
This is from Reason.com about the Republicans:

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s primary loss isn’t just historic, it illustrates why the Republican Party is in big trouble if it doesn’t get serious about its legislative agenda.

Here are three reasons Eric Cantor lost—and why Republicans will continue to lose unless they change their wicked wicked ways.

1. The Party of Big Government

Despite rhetoric in favor of small and limited government, George W. Bush and the Republicans increased spending by more than 50 percent in inflation-adjusted terms and spending on regulations by even more than that. Cantor, who took office in 2001, voted for No Child Left Behind, Medicare expansion, the creation of the Transportation Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security, Troubled Assets Relief Program, and the auto bailouts. None of that reflects fiscal responsibility.

2. The Party of Intolerance

With a few exceptions, the Republican party is opposed to marriage equality and pot legalization, both of which are supported by large and growing majorities. Despite attempts to paint him as soft on immigration, Cantor wanted a militarized border with Mexico and had a 100 percent rating from a leading anti-immigration group. Sixty-four percent of Republicans—and even higher percentages of independents—support immigration reform.

3. The Party of the Status Quo

As Majority Leader, Cantor pushed a GOP budget plan that would grow annual spending from $3.7 trillion to $5 trillion over the next decade. He supported increasing military spending and a hawkish foreign policy. He pushed crony-capitalist institutions like the Export-Import Bank, which subsidizes purchases of U.S. goods and services.

Cantor stood for a status quo that Americans find increasingly intolerable. He lost because he personified all that is bad and hypocritical about the Republican Party. And until the GOP demonstrates it is serious about limiting the size, scope, and spending of government, they will keep losing elections.
