    You sign off on whatever is said on this forum by showing up day after day.

    An obviously inappropriate analogy; you don't go to the same church every Sunday for twenty years to debate with your pastor.

    I'm open to the idea that he's not actually a racist... though I do think it is possible... but the other factors tell me a lot more about how he would govern than he would like us to know, and I believe that would not serve anybody well.

    Do you go there to sign off on whatever your pastor says?

    This whole thing with Ron Paul is a matter of Dems vs Repub (which this thread went into) or even whether or not he is a racist. What bothers me is this is the typical plea of ignorance, and lack of accountability. These are two major issues plaguing our government. These are the kinds of politicians that need to be kept out of any office.

    I could see the "narative" behind it being, "Ok. Lets make Mr. Shiny, Button-up as spiffy as possible. Give him a perfect voting record. Have him always stand for liberty in the face of everything else. Have him endorse racism on 1 occasion and see how many people will still blindly trust him seeing as everything else is peachy keen."

    Basicaly a trust test to see who will stay on his side of the line under any circumstances.

    Of course thats triple guessing and assuming extremely coniving poeple exsist.

    Perhaps "they" need to slide in the fact that RP is a racists so that they can forge his place in history as USA's Hitler. You know what "they" say.? History repeats itself.

    Really? You have to immediately leave your church if you disagree with whatever the pastor says or you automatically agree?

    I'll bet 90% of the people in church on Sunday think their pastor is spewing some kind of idiocy, but they don't flee.

    I disagree with my priest about a lot of things, but I've spent my last decade of Sundays there nonetheless because they only revolve around minor quibbles. Thinking that God condemns the United States of America is a pretty extreme view, and I would almost immediately step out of the pew and walk out in front of two hundred people if my priest said that - especially if I happened to be a senator or a candidate for the presidency of the United States.
