    They don't become intertwined to the level of a theocracy generally. Britain had the test act for a century but we weren't a theocracy. You simply don't seem to understand what a theocracy is. It is more than religious influence, it is a complete or almost complete merging of state and church.

    You are simply misusing a word for propaganda value against those you dislike like liberals who call any one who wants to limit immigration or multicultralism racist.

    I'm not going to waste any more time. The reason he is not liked by many conservatives is because he embraces theocracy.
    No he doesn't and you haven't shown how he does. Conservatives tend to have a great respect for religion and its necessary, to them, place in society.

    Re: Why can't Republicans or Conservatives get behind Alan Keyes?

    The same reason most mainstream conservatives don't support Ron Paul, or most mainstream liberals don't support Ralph Nader: Because they're lunatics. Although Keyes is even more insane than either of those two.
    I supported Ron Paul for President. So, if the man I supported for President is a lunatic, then what does that make me? Perhaps, instead of flippantly dismissing Ron Paul as a lunatic and making statements that are the intellectual equivalent of a drive-by shooting, you should offer up something of substance for others to contemplate.

    It makes me wonder, when you used to display the Gadsden flag in your profile was it because you believed in what it stood for or because you thought it looked cool? I'm guessing it was the latter. Men of words are nothing but the sum-total of their inactions. You are a man of words. That's probably why you're so afraid to approach women. Maybe this will inspire you to take action...

    I've voted for Keyes every chance I've had.

    hautey is trying to be the Al Sharpton of the forums these days. His racist implications speak more to his racism than anything he accuses backhandidly conservatives of.

    What makes Ron Paul a lunatic? Same question for Nader

    Neither of them understand that the real world is not an abstract concept. The fact that one can *deduce* their position on any given issue (even if one has never heard them speak about the issue at hand) should be a red flag that one is listening to an ideologue with little grasp of reality or any sense of practicality.

    Keyes is even scarier than those two. At least with Paul and Nader, I get the impression that they mean well, as extreme as their policies may be. They're at least trying to make the world a better place. The World According to Alan Keyes, on the other hand, would be a very frightening place.

    Ralph Nader doesn't support endless socialism? Have you ever heard him open his mouth on any subject? He supports a maximum wage, for Christ's sake.
