The reality is, that the few "token" minority Pubs politicians have purposefully been pushed to the forefront, now that Republicans have been been forced to ACCEPT the reality that minorities carry power with their vote.
It's desperation on the part of the Republican party, it's disingenuous, and imo, will likely add to the resentment minorities already have towards the party, for the years of Republicans turning their nose up to minorities. Just the way it is.
This from the party with a racist VP and a racist Senate Majority Leader.

Reid, Race, and the Party-Based Double Standard

Watching Gwen Ifill, Al Sharpton and a plethora of African American news reporters and academics on MSNBC defend and excuse Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's racial slight makes you realize why the Democratic Party can take black voters for granted.

There are absolutely no consequences for liberal elites to have differing public and private views on political issues. The Democratic Party even went so far to dismiss the disparaging comments by Joe Biden about Barack Obama being clean and articulate to nominate and confirm him as Vice President at their convention.

Today, the sitting Vice President stands as the symbol of liberal elite's racial double standard.

That's why I usually use the word bigot instead of racist.

Much more inclusive.

Not all prejudice is about race, but it's still worng.

Economist? That's just more clueless, ivory tower liberals who can't do anything, so they teach instead. They say the problem is that we didn't spend enough? Sure.
Everytime I max out my credit card, I use my common sense too. Naturally, I come to the brilliant f*cking conclusion that it's because I didn't spend enough!
LOL! You haven't got the common sense God gave a flea.
You are a total idiot.

Again, you have lumped ALL women and ALL men into categories - men being capable and competent and women being a "drag" on combat operations. I hate stereotypes. They get it wrong about 75% of the time because they fail to consider individual characteristics. Some women will outperform some men in every single category you mentioned. SOME women will run a helluva' lot faster than SOME men. The Army, for example, will take just about any warm body that shows up. That's not true for The Air Force. It's hard to recruit intellect for infantry work. So, you have to consider that lazy paunchy young men who aren't the sharpest tools in the shed will, indeed, show up. You might also be recruiting a young Wilma Rudolph;-) Hard to say.
What you also fail to acknowledge is that all recruits will receive exactly the same training. It is at the conclusion of that training that commanding officers can tell WHO (male or female) has the stamina, common sense, and conditioning to perform versus who should be assigned as a desk jockey or field support. You continue to incorrectly imply that officers have no input into duties assigned. You're wrong.
A 5'9" athletic and well toned woman is probably every bit as capable as most men. You view life through patronizing stereotypes. Women have won the right to advance their military careers with this decision. Good for them. They, too, are already dying in service to their country. Now, they will have the potential for rewards for their service that have heretofore been denied them.
Incorrect- Infantry will have some of the highest ASFAB scores you will see. Also, women have a lower ratio of fast-twitch muscle fiber than men, i.e. their stamina will be as high or higher but their muscle mass will be less. "Some" women will ALWAYS be able to outperform "some" men, but combat arms refuses to level the playing field merely for the sake of gender equality.

According to the military, the military will not need to lower its physical standards as it opens direct combat jobs to women.
So regardless of gender, all individuals must be able to carry large numbers of supplies, carry 500 rounds, fill 1000 lbs of sandbags in 1/2 hour, etc
You misinterpreted "lower standards"- that would mean carrying less, filling fewer sandbags etc. Think about it, lowering the standards in school would be like making 50% a passing score on a test.

<quoted text>Hmmmm, wasn't it you in an earlier post that labeled our Founding Fathers as liberals, and NOW refer to Conservatism in their memory?
The liberal ideas in question was in respect to the British Monarchy and what conservatism meant back then. See: Toryism

It was very radical left wing liberal of the founding fathers to challenge a king, go against the church and declare that all men are created equal.

Aryan Women



Every child that an Aryan mother brings into the world is a battle waged for the existence of her people.

The program of the National Aryan Woman's Movement has truly a single point - the child.

The sphere and tasks of man and man and woman in life are separate but complimentary. Mutual respect lies in the fact that both man and woman know that each is doing everything which is necessary to maintain the whole national community.

The Aryan way of life is determined not by material considerations but by the soul of a nation. Aryan woman gives herself in conscious idealism to the concept of the national interest before private interest.

The Aryan woman guards the purity of her blood in which reposes her racial instinct and strength, the guarantor of Aryan culture.

So says you, a budding Stalin in the making. Who said this?
"As soon as by one's own propaganda even a glimpse of right on the other side is admitted, the cause for doubting one's own right is laid." - Adolf Hitler... though it could have been said by you!
Tolerance? Your philosophy has none. As for your and Rico's idiotic "all or nothing" scenarios, that's just nonsense.[Intact is one word, so keep "in" and "tact" intact please.]
Slavery returning? Why, yes, it has been back a number of times since the Civil War. National Socialism used it, as did the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The nice little socialist nightmare in North Korea is using it now - for those they haven't yet starved to death. Hmmmm.... what's the common denominator? SOCIALISM! Everyone of those horror shows thought they were bringing your lovely socialism to the world.
Oh, you thought slavery meant black people ONLY. Actually, considering Hitler and Stalin's tens of millions of slave laborers, those alive today who remember being slaves are almost entirely white folks. All that due to socialism. Aren't you proud? If you don't like your progenitors, that's not my fault.
LOL

I completely understand why you would like to divert the focus of the shames perpetrated in this country, to monsters like Hitler, and Stalin, and the many atrocities that haunt humanity historically, but, let's keep the focus on what my post was about.

Conservatism...and what the U.S would be like had it been at the helm all these years, In THIS country. Not in Germany, not In Russia. We're not talking about madmen here. Were talking about an ideology that excludes, shuns, discriminates, hates, destroys and welcomes ignorance if it means clinging to the status quo.

Unfortunately, it even discriminates against it's own when they refuse to fall into line with the sheer stupidity and hatred of the majority. I know there are some good people in the Republican party determined to salvage and save the party they belong to, but after reading the words of people like you, 119, I can't help but wonder if they are dooming themselves to go down with ship, because if you haven't looked around lately, the ship is sinking.

At this point, making comparisons to historically socialist nations, like Germany and Russia, to scare the masses isn't going to cut it. Thanks to liberalism(education), people know better. It's better that you do what you have to do to keep your party, The "Grand ol Party", intact. Whatever that is at this point ;)

It's tough to find brave, independent thinkers, especially those in so-called "minority groups" who know they will be branded as Uncle Toms by you filthy haters. But as the looming disaster of the Democrat's failed economic vision becomes more evident, more will emerge.
You post is one huge lie, starting with "the" and ending with "is". You've drunk deeply of the liberal kool-aid and no longer have a brain of your own.
Well, as with every far right angry conservative, you are welcome to your ignorance. ;)

Governor Martinez cautioned against treating immigration “as though that’s the only issue that Hispanic voters care about.” She named closing the achievement gap, the ability to work, and the ability to grow small businesses as other top concerns. Governor Sandoval likewise emphasized that Hispanic voters are not a “single-issue electorate,” and shouldn’t be treated as if they were.

Something that is normally great, the idea that you don't judge people for being different than you. The problem arises when liberal douche bags call themselves open minded but actually reject anyone who doesn't believe the same thing they do as a bigot.
