    Are you saying that you wish to disenfranchise those who disagree with you?

    Please say it ain't so.

    Would you like to have fascist lawmakers, fascist judges, or fascist police officers?

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs. That does not mean we have to treat all opinions with the same level of deference or respect.

    are you going to deny people their rights based on their political pursuasion?

    Facists have just as much right to be lawmakers, judges and police officers as you do, and as long as they stay within the law.
    So follow me into the desert

    Of course they have the right to do so, the point is that I would prefer that they not be in those positions of authority (our esteemed colleague Kori notwithstanding).

    well the original statement that sparked this was about denying Communists roles in government, and to go down a slope a bit, what's to stop that from being extended to positions in the community or society?
    Of course they have the right to do so, the point is that I would prefer that they not be in those positions of authority (our esteemed colleague Kori notwithstanding).
    and i'm sure there are people who would prefer to have them in positions of authority, and your preference is just as important as theirs, 'cept yours is in the majority.

    I wouldn't like it, but I am not about to rule them out as they have the same rights of citizenship that any other American does. If they are legitimately elected or selected, than it is what it is. I may mouth off and be annoyed about it, but I am not about to deny them their humanity.

    Perhaps this is an issue of how the sentiment was phrased? The reason I stated "say it ain't so" was because Mellie tends to be more fair minded than what I read into her statement and I was giving her the benefit of the doubt.

    How does either of those 2 clowns have anything to do with college tuition for veteran's children?

    Yes. If they make this event political, which includes bashing the rival party and its leaders, then you lose.
