    I'm not trying to show racial prejudice. I'm trying to show indignity. Take a look at Rev's posts and tell me you don't see it.

    I agree with you morally, and am personally pro-life, but with regards to government am pro-choice, I think the rights of the living, take precedence over the rights of the unborn, every time.

    More proof you aren't a libertarian. Standard libertarian principle is that you own your body. You have no right to tell another individual what to do with their body because it is their property.

    So the Anti-War movement is actually the Anti-War, Pro Environmentalism, Pro-Gun Control, Pro-Choice movement since some of the candidates it supported in 2006 talked about those things as well?

    Wow, I didn't realize when someone yelled "No blood for oil" they were really going "No blood for oil, no assult rifles for citizens, no chopping down a tree, no restricting a womans right to snuff out that mistake she made!"

    Phew, who knew they could pack so much into a simple 4 word slogan.

    the unborn is the living. I dont see which side of the womb as a reason for "you don't count".

This guy wasn't videoed becasue of his opinion, he was videoed becasue of the color of his skin. By definition, when the tea party uses someone in that fashioin they are using them as a token.
    And? Around 90% of African Americans vote Democrat. Most of them probably don't have a major problem with how the Democrats are spending and raising the debt. Why would they protest? 6.2% of California's population is black. Does that mean the state of California is racist because they have a low population of African Americans? Having a low percentage of African Americans does not mean that it is due to Tea Party racism. I believe it's largely due to political beliefs and political affiliation. The Tea Party doesn't turn down blacks. Actions are what make a group racist, not demographics.

    I believe that the liberal media may use the one guy with a semi-racist sign as a token. They plant racists into the Tea Party and try to use them to enforce their fabricated lie that the Tea Party is racist, those are dishonest tokens. I think it's racist to say that a black member of the Tea Party is just a "token." You de-legitimize their beliefs and individuality based on their race when you do that.

    I tend to the think that organized religion and their members are Republicans, and they are "the base"...
