    Or transported in such techniques as "souls to the polls".

    Both parties do cater to a lot of idiots.The idiots that democrats cater to are those that believe republicans are racist, the war against women and other lies that pundits on MSNBC and others like them spew.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The right-wing social engineering bills at the state and federal level as told to us by Noot Gingrich is a start.

    The RNC platform speaks for itself.

    I've NEVER been one for book-marking anything.
    I came in too late to computers and didn't have the time to learn.
    Not to say that I shouldn't start.

    Just answering your questions specifically would have me reading and searching for some time.

    Your tone is fine, but the socially conservative laws and platforms are a matter of record .

    So you can't even give one example of something in the platform with which you take issue?

    Yet you implicitly criticize the intelligence of Democratic voters.
    I didn't go there.

    Actually, I criticize the intelligence of the average voter, regardless of party...

    What about the idiots that Republicans cater to, since you're in a thrashing mood ?

    I am not a in a thrashing mode.I am simply stating a fact. No intelligent person buys the war on women,republicans are racist, or any other similar nonsense that MSNBC and other far leftists spew.

Someone at MSNBC thought it was okay to make a jab at conservatives, they realized they'd get bad pub for it, and so they retracted it. Yawn.
    MSNBC president apologizes to RNC, fires staffer responsible for tweet - POLITICO.com

    If "fired" is a slap on the wrist, then sure.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
