Everyone has a right to have an opinion and they should be respected in their sincerity of doing so. There is no reason to mock or denigrate a person because you do not agree. You may certainly disagree, but you should assume those who give an opinion to so in good faith.

Get serious!!!!! Pfftt!!!!!!
The elections are over, hon. No matter how much you whine, Barack Hussein Obama II will be the President of the United States for four more years. Med up and get over it!
The following list does not mean you are a racist:
1. Criticizing Obama.
2. Opposing quotas.
3. Supporting English as our national language.
4. Advocating welfare reform.
5. Wanting education funds to go to the teachers, and not so much to the fat-cat administrators, school superintendents and worthless, expensive programs and books.
6. Opposing Holder for his Fast and Furious debacle.
7. Opposing Obama for telling the Director of NASA Charles Bolden that giving preferences to Muslims is his #3 priority mission for the organization.
8. Learning and sharing the lies of Obamacare as they are revealed.
9. Supporting Catholics and other religious institutions for their opposition to Obamacare mandates against their beliefs.
10. Supporting the United State Constitution.
Using an abstract weapon such as calling someone a ‘racist” has become a loser's tactic to the point that the person who uses that term is the real loser. It doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be sensible dialogue, but that is for logical people.

Treat others, as you want them to treat you. To earn respect you must first, give respect and give it to yourself too, as, if you don’t respect yourself, no one else will respect you. Merely saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ doesn’t mean that you are being respectful. In the daily grind and stress of everyday life, we have forgotten the moral obligation of respecting others so that we are also respected in turn. If you can earn the respect of your peers and fellows, then it’s a life well lived as it is the hardest thing to get, even taking up an entire lifetime.

•Good manners are the essential quality to show respect. So, cultivate good manners, as people get a sense of respect, when they interact with a well-mannered person. Good behavior automatically earns the respect of others.

•Do not stereotype other people. Stereotyping makes, you come across as a narrow-minded person. It also shows your lack of respect for the person, you are stereotyping.

•Don’t dictate or belittle anyone because of his or her background, religion, or social status. It is not only ill mannered, but also signals bad breeding.

•You cannot respect anyone whom you mock, tease or backbite. Throw these out and you will feel respect for people. Once you start respecting the people, you used to back bite or tease; you will gradually develop the sense of respecting everyone.

•When you respect someone, you must also respect his choice and free will. So, don’t pressurize anyone to do something which he or she is not willing to do. When you give priority to someone’s right to choose, you show him or her respect.

•To show respect, value other people’s opinion. This does not mean blindly follow whatever they say. You must show your understanding of his or her opinion, and then present your reasons for agreement or disagreement.

Hey, Jack.
I actually have more respect for stray dogs, and they seem to be more intelligent. I've never seen a white stray that acted like it thought it was "better" than non-white strays. I've also never seen a male stray that ran around trying to convince all the others that it was a female.

John Sununu's comment that Colin Powell's endorsement of Obama was due to them sharing skin color is one example. It meant that intelligence and reasoning couldn't possibly be a factor. It also said that Powell wasn't to be trusted because remember, he too is black. Sarah Palin's "shuck and jive" comment was another thinly veiled harkening to the stereotype of the shiftless and lazy negro. And as I mentioned there was The Donald getting all kinds of attention by bringing up the none-too-subtle idea that President Obama would have never gotten into Harvard without affirmative action, which of course is another issue that brings up that anti-black and anti-Hispanic feeling in many on the Right.
Republican Racism Will Make Party Obsolete
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/earnest-harris/...
I know I am not a racist and resent anyone who has no idea what I have done or participated in for various races, or doesn’t even know my heritage, to call me one.
Calling someone a racist because they don’t care for Obama has become such a meaningless conditioned response from leftists, that it only means something to them now.
Now don’t worry, Ms. Liberal or Mr. Leftist, I am not going, or even trying, to ‘prove’ anything to you. I know you will define ‘racist’ as being whatever you want it to be. Whine about it all you want. Basically, I am not listening anymore to that futile rhetoric.

I agree, and I read your "opinion". My "opinion" is that you all are nuts, and as I said before, I'm sorry if that offends you.

<quoted text>Perhaps a bit more
Granted, God is not mentioned in the Constitution, but He is mentioned in every major document leading up to the final wording of the Constitution. For example, Connecticut is still known as the "Constitution State" because its colonial constitution was used as a model for the United States Constitution. Its first words were: "For as much as it has pleased the almighty God by the wise disposition of His Divine Providence…"

Most of the fifty-five Founding Fathers who worked on the Constitution were members of orthodox Christian churches and many were even evangelical Christians. The first official act in the First Continental Congress was to open in Christian prayer, which ended in these words: "...the merits of Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Savior. Amen". Sounds Christian to me.

John Adams stated so eloquently during this period of time that; "The general principles on which the fathers achieved Independence were ... the general principles of Christianity ... I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that the general principles of Christianity are as etemal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God."

Later, John Quincy Adams answered the question as to why, next to Christmas, was the Fourth of July this most joyous and venerated day in the United States. He answered: "...Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity?" Sounds like the founding of a Christian nation to me. John Quincy Adams went on to say that the biggest victory won in the American Revolution was that Christian principles and civil government would be tied together The Founding Fathers understood that religion was inextricably part of our nation and government. The practice of the Christian religion in our government was not only welcomed but encouraged.

The intent of the First Amendment was well understood during the founding of our country. The First Amendment was not to keep religion out of government. It was to keep Government from establishing a 'National Denomination" (like the Church of England). As early as 1799 a court declared: "By our form of government the Christian religion is the established religion; and all sects and denominations of Christians are placed on the same equal footing." Even in the letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Baptists of Danbury Connecticut (from which we derive the term "separation of Church and State") he made it quite clear that the wall of separation was to insure that Government would never interfere with religious activities because religious freedom came from God, not from Government.

John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, and one of the three men most responsible for the writing of the Constitution declared:
"Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is their duty-as well as privilege and interest- of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." Still sounds like the Founding Fathers knew this was a Christian nation.

In 1892 the Court stated:"No purpose of action against religion can be imputed to any legislation, state or national, because this is a religious people...This is a Christian nation." There it is again! From the Supreme Court of the United States. This court went on to cite 87 precedents (prior actions, words, and rulings) to conclude that this was a "Christian nation".
In 1854, the House Judiciary Committee said: "in this age, there is no substitute for Christianity...That was the religion of the founders of the republic, and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants.'
