I completely agree that these are times of great concern but in reality this has always been the case. There has always been something to be concerned about and there always will be. This is the price we pay for living in a country of our stature and influence.<quoted text>Thank you X-Man. But we are all adults here or at least should be. When you are dealing with someone that is truly racist it's a lost cause I know. Those beliefs go deep and are strong. They consume the holder with hate and contempt for others.
But I don't believe that all the conservatives on these threads are racist. I believe they are scared which is something we should all understand. These are scary times. We live one day to the next not knowing what will happen next. Korea is basically threatening us with nuclear warfare. The Muslim Countries want us gone in all ways possible. The world economy is hitting the bottom. Our economy is not what it should be. We have laws that go outside of our Constitution yet they are being allowed to stand. Those laws hurt our right to privacy. They allow law to break in your door at home regardless of warrent. The Patriot Act isn't Constitutional but it stays in force. I see where Briton and America is working up laws to take money out of Wall Street earnings by stock holders as well as Banks and Bank Deposit Boxes which belong to customers or so I had always thought. They also have given themselves the right to go into someones box without the customers knowledge. That will be where the next money comes from to save those to big to fail. No more tax payer money.
It's a scary world out there. I understand their concern.
I certainly don't believe that all conservatives are racist but, unfortunately, many racists have flocked to, and found refuge in the Republican party. We see proof of that on these threads every day.
The other day, even you and I disagreed about a word that many conservatives have no problem using. I saw your disagreement more as naivety than racist or prejudice because I truly know you to be a fair and non prejudice person but I can't say the same for most others that post here.
