    Conservatives tend to emulate the same two or three conservative talk show hosts. The echos are not only apparent but at times comical.

    you said you would choose a libertarian over a supporter of government.

    i am opposed to libertarianism because it violates one of my principles.

    No, I only brought it into context in answer to what I believe was an incorrect assessment by a poster regarding opposition to Obama. The poster claimed it was to keep Obama from being re-elected, and I pointed out it was to keep him from implementing his liberal agenda.

    I don't find it insulting to tell the truth. I do find it insulting when someone demands their version of truth be accepted.

    For example, you write "southerners do cling to their bible and guns.

    Here's a reminder of what Obama actually said:

    A political storm is brewing over Sen. Barack Obama's recent statements. Last Sunday, Obama was explaining his difficulty with winning over working-class voters in Pennsylvania and the Midwest, saying they have become frustrated with economic conditions:

    "And it's not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations," Obama said.

    What he said was correct though.

    Ah. So...when someone commits an obviously racist act or if someone says something that is obviously racist, should we then refrain from pointing it out? "Ignore it and it'll go away"?

    TB, do yourself a favor - look at both sides of the story, and see which side is committing more racist acts, which side actually does use racist dog-whistles on a weekly basis. Better yet, keep a record of racist acts and statements by both sides, and see which side's list gets much, much longer. And be sure to include the dog-whistle statements, because almost everyone knows them for what they are.

    See which side's list gets much, much longer...

    ...and bear in mind that a degree of racism by one side does not negate that side's right and responsibility to point out the much, much greater degree of racism by the other side.

    I'm eager to see how your list turns out.
