you are correct in pointing out the right turn the country has taken in the last 30 years. If you look at the long term picture the right and left have taken turns being the dominate philosophy. These cycles last about 30- 50 years. The robber barons followed Lincoln, and were followed by The Progressives at the turn of the century. Then came corporate rule in the era following World War One . Followed by FDR, followed by the Reagan era.
Each change of direction has been marked by radicalism in the leading philosophy. This radicalism destroys credibility with moderate voters.
In the 1960's flag burning lefties turned the pendulum right ward.
Now the radicalism of the hard core right has ended rightward progress. The pendulum has started a left movement.
The damage done to our country during the last few decades can be reversed.
Keep you spirits the good guys are finally winning

Thanks for admitting you hate him for breaking the 'color barrier' and living in a white neighborhood. More evidence that you are, in fact, a racist.
I don't hate Wright, hell I don't even hate you. I don't blame Wright for his decision, after preaching for decades to this group of Parishioners He made the decision where he and his family would be safe.

He was calling on God to damn America's racism, and I completely agree with him. Evidently you either don't understand our long, racist past or else you are a racist yourself, not sure which.
The phrase "radical liberal fascist" is so laughably dumb I see no reason to go on with your idiotic post. You have no credibility, obviously.
Yeah well Obama left Reverend Wrights church. Didn't he. Something about something he didn't agree with.

No he left because what Reverend Wright said might hurt him politically.

Your long racist past. No one alive today was a slave or a slave owner.

The slaves were sold by their own people. But just the ones that weren't worth a shit.

Wright preaches that the white man is imposing his views on the African culture. The rich white elite.

Wright should lead the soldiers back to Africa but watch out for the mass killings and aids.

Most liberals who use the term racist for anyone and anything that opposed the Messiah, Mr Obama are, for the most part, white, guilt ridden males.

Hint, li'l fella: a conversation is an exchange of views, while your posts to me are just enraged meltdowns with no actual content.

You've "added" nothing to these discussions so far. Try harder.:)

See? This is what I mean. Your post is a ridiculous strawman with no basis in fact. Most "liberals" use the term "racist" to describe race-based bigotry or race-baiting commentary by the right.

Mr. Obama isn't a "messiah," no one has really claimed he is but righties, and white people who voted for him are not "white, guilt-ridden males."

Your post itself sounds like a nasty piece of race-baiting.

Sure he left it for political reasons. But the criticisms of Wright were unjust and wrong.

Your other comments are themselves racist and disgusting. Go to hell, Klansman.

ALWAYS amusing when a troll like you demands that others "educate themselves" or stop "posting lies and nonsense."

Educated you are not, but full of lies and nonsense you certainly have always been...:)

Hey pissant, you don't like my posts, don't read them. the post you responded to wasn't even direct at you but in response to another brain warped liberal with little to contribute. The Race card is that of the Liberals, they owned it. It started with Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, Herman Cain. The vulgarity spewed by the liberal in an attempt to demonize these people, all reputable public servants, all entirely black, by the way, not half and half, as Mr. Obama, was strictly racist. The problem with liberals, they don't like it when they get some of their own medicine shoved back at them. They think they set the rules and officiate the game, but they don't. So pissant, keep right on babbling about spell and grammar errors. Keep drinking the koolaid and paying the price for your liberal idiots in DC. OH and by the way, check the last 10 post you made, nothing but insults and gibberish, you reap what you sow!
