    Again, know what the definition of a word is and how to use it before you use it incorrectly.
    Wrong! It is more than just the ability to read and write. It is the understanding of history. Link

    • The NAEP, which is commonly known as the “Nation's Report Card,” shows that less than one-quarter of America's students in grades four, eight, and twelve are proficient in American history.

    • Many fourth-graders nationwide can’t identify the first permanent British settlement in the United States. A mere 1% of eighth-graders can explain how the fall of the Berlin Wall affected American foreign policy, and only nine percent know at least two causes of the Civil War.

    • The NAEP “report card” on student achievement in U.S. history shows that 53% of twelfth graders are leaving high school with "below basic" knowledge of U.S. history, and just 27% are deemed proficient in civics.

    • More than half of high school seniors who took the most recent NAEP U.S. history test thought that Italy, Germany, or Japan was a U.S. ally in the Second World War.

    • A survey of college students at fifty-five elite colleges and universities found that more than a third were unable to identify the U.S. Constitution as establishing the division of power in our government and 40% could not place the Civil War in the correct half century.

    Where is the evidence of the group's racism or more importantly where is the evidence that Tancredo know they were? Go ahead.

    There are many racists in the NAACP and Obama addressed them. Does that make him racist too?

    Now compare Tancredo to Ron Paul, who was also supported by White Nationalists. Paul made an effort to distance himself from the crazies. Tancredo embraced the crazies.
    Wow are you out there. So in your mind we have a supreme court who is an open racist.

    Did you know about Sotomayor? Not only did she address La Raza, she sat on their board.

    Are you going to call her a racist as well or is this just for conservatives?


    Still waiting for HIS racist comments. Direct quotes please.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    What part of Historical Literacy Statistics are you not getting?


    How many times do I have to point out you used the word "literacy" ALONE without context and in its original context without clarification is it specific to the ability to read and wrote ALONE.

    “And that racism inclination still exists.

It's an abominable circumstance, and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply.” — President Jimmy Carter²
    Good God..... you are quoting Carter?

    OK. I think I see your confusion. Are you referring to this http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1058538567? If so, take a look at the first quote from Danarhea. I copied his quote. If that's not it, I have no effing idea to what you are referring to.

    and if that is what you are referring to, it was a quote from an article

    That happens.

    If the American Tea Party wishes to become something significant and not just a reflex spasm of outrage at the damned socialists wrecking the nation, they're going to have to grow, establish a mission statement and platform, select leaders, and make themselves heard.

    And in any political movement there is always the jockeying for power and position and prestige, and only the rarest movements have leaders that come from out of nowhere. They're adults, they have a history of some kind, and sometimes that means they were part of another political party before they joined the new one.

    People trying to make an issue of that are ignorant or fools, or are assuming others are.

    Did Eric Clapton come from nowhere? No, before he became his own show, he was part of Cream. So Tom Tancredo makes a speech about the evils of multiculturalism and the perils of allowing unlimited franchise to ignorant voters, so what? All honest people can see the flaws of multiculturalism and unrestricted franchise.

    What's the problem?

    If you are saying that you need to give the government money to be able to vote, you are in fact charging people to be able to vote.

    You would also be increasing the size of government to be able to do this. I thought you were for SMALLER government?

    No. I'm saying that if you had some skin in the game, you might vote responsibly and not for the person that promises you all the money he can steal from those that do pay taxes.... but you knew that.
