    I make no distinction between them. They could not vote, or do a write in, instead of enable a homophobe.

    I am tired of seeing republicans complaining about all the minorities on welfare, when there is in fact more white people on it.

    Maybe racial stereotyping comments like this is why minorities don't vote for you.

    I think he makes religious people look bad. Somebody needs to remind him that he doesn't, in fact, speak for all Christians and he definitely doesn't speak for God. He is actually responsible for what he says.

    But. They need to find a way to communicate their opinions so that they don't look like idiots.

    I am not a republican. Sorry to burst your bubble. The enemy of my enemy appears to be my friend to too many people here

    Are you sure he deserved to get into those colleges, or maybe he just got in because of his race. Better ask for transcripts. You can never trust a black person's intellect with AA these days.

By the way, I still have yet to see someone refute his comment about the 3/5ths compromise--reality sucks that way sometimes.

    Well, if you want to be a racist feel free to be so without me. I have no intention of enabling your pigmentation phobia. If he has degrees from UM-Boston, and 2 from Harvard, I'd still contend he is smarter than people like you who question whether or not he was qualified to go there.

    I think you guys like what he is saying because he is black. A white political couldn't get away with it as much.

    Even with the double standard, it doesn't make his message any better. I am fully against his ignorance. He doesn't speak for God or all Christians, and sooner or later it won't be as acceptable to talk about gay people like he does.

    It kind of reminds me of when Palin came along and conservatives were saying, liberals hate her so much cause she proves you can have lots of children and be successful. Well, I don't have any kids and I don't see anything wrong with that. I don't feel having a bunch of kids is a measurement of female success, so no, I don't think liberals hate her for being a mom.

    Likewise, I don't think all black people should feel a certain way. I don't expect them to feel one way or another about PP, abortion, or make modern slavery comparisons to anything.

    Minorities and women are free thinking individuals and have a right to self determination in this country.

    You can be conservative without such divisive language. He has no chance of winning a national election.

    And when they were founded, some of their biggest supporters were Republicans. Still haven't dealt with that have you?
