    I was in my teens when I figured out that Liberals didn't give a **** about anything more than their own agenda.

    In other words, you're blind to the hypocrisy. Nice.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I agree with that statement, but I also figured out that the Conservative agenda is much more user friendly.

    Hopefully, someday, you'll figure out that both sides of the coin are, in their own way, equally unfriendly.

    When it comes to fiscal responsibility yes, it is. When it starts mixing religion and politics, not so much.

    Quite the opposite. I'm illustrating the hypocrisy of the Leftist/Progressive/Liberal agenda.

    Margaret Sanger was the Progressive who is considered the mother of Planned Parenthood. An award, called, "The Maggie", is given each year to folks--all are Liberals--whom put in the most effort towards supporting legalized abortion in this country. Margaret Sanger is also the person who dreamed up the, "Negro Project", that said that the best way to help blacks in America was to exterminate the race, or at least slow it's expansion.

    Mixing religion with politics? How many times have the Reverends Jackson and Sharpton made political speeches at churches, all the while running for president?

    "Equally unfriendly"? Not even close.

    The expanse of user friendly-ness between the Left and the Right is a thousand miles wide.

    As it is, the minarets are mainly symbolic, as Swiss noise ordinances make calls to prayer from their heights all but impossible.
    Your idealistic view of Islamic immigration erroneously assumes that they will assimilate and become Switzerlandized. Their religious fervor will wane and they will adopt their culture, spread out though the population, melt into the melting pot. The reality is, they don't. The vast majority congregate in Muslim enclaves, which is easy to understand. Common language, common belief, relative who helped them come over, easy access to halal items, etc. But the result is that they don't melt, they remain lumps. If you make beef stew, and keep replenishing the pot, but you don't add beef, carrots, onions, etc., just potatoes, how long before your beef stew has become potato soup?

    Please, stop. Your ignorance on the Swiss Muslim population is painful to read.

    Are you perhaps mistaking my country with the UK?

    There are no better integrated Muslims in Europe than those who live here.

    What, you expect me to disagree with you? I despise both parties equally. I'm really glad I'm not American. I honestly would not know who to ever vote for.
