    Before January of '09 it was considered patriotic by many to question your government but now those same folks say it's racist to do so. If Romney (or whomever) beats Obama in the next election will the dissent be patriotic again?

    I would imagine so. I thought it was common knowledge that it's only patriotic to question the govt when a Republican is in office. Oh well.

      If anyone but Barry Hussin Obama (might as well be Osama) wins, it will be because the country is racist.

      Mark my words.

        Because Jimmy Carter said it and because some ignorant people on the street may say it, don't assume all those who support Obama, or those capable of having a rationale conversation, believe the opposition is 'racist'. Obama himself put essentially put things to rest by saying (to paraphrase) "I was black before the election...so this shows how far America has come"...

          I do believe, kind sir, that Professor Gates did more damage than any conservative on this board can do.

              Seattle, Washington for one, but they called it something else. Lots of ACORN, ANSWER, Socialists placard waving people there. Lots of screams of calling Bush a Nazi and such. Good time held by all. I was there in full riot gear the whole time, so I saw and heard it first hand. I wasn't complaining though, I racked up tons of overtime $$$.

                I was actually thinking at one point that JC finally found his purpose in life building houses for habitat for humanity. Finally it seemed he found something he did well. Why did he leave it and go on this campaign of continually reminding us of why he was a one term president.

                  Getting p!33ed off is where they were. In November they showed some of their anger by giving the demcoratic party a clear majority in the house and senate as well as POTUS....when it became instantly clear nothing had changed, and in fact, worse, they started protesting.
                  A Veteran is someone who at one point in their life wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America, for an amount up to, and including their life. That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact!

                    Barry hadn't yet shown his true intentions and all were hopeful and waiting to see.

                    Now that he has shown what his true intentions are, real Americans are NOT going to sit by and watch their nation be sold out.

                    THAT'S, where th "tea baggers" were.

                      Since the late 90's and into present, there has been incredible turmoil within the ranks of the GOP. The leadership of the party has sold out its conservative roots and started selling out their principles in an effort to appease the left. The base has been clamoring and yelling within the confines of the party ever since. There has been plenty of opposition to Bush's and the GOP's reckless spending.

                      It's the unprecedented pace and direction of Obama's spending that has finally driven normally quiet and private conservatives out onto the streets in protest.

                        Ditto.

                        Texas Gov. Rick Perry may or may not be the real deal in getting conservatives back to their roots, we shall see. His only opponent in the upcoming Governor's race is a female Senator that has been in Washington way too long.

                        Here, Perry basically tells the US Government to go to Hell while affirming Texas sovereignty

                          For some unkown reason....Hutchinson has strong support from the minorities (read: Hispanics)

                            I don't follow your logic. Its as if you took Jimmy Carter out of the original statement and added Professor Gates into the equation. It doesn't matter. These are people who speak for themselves and no one else. Obama essentially shot down Carter's opinion and the majority of the country - including many in the Black community - shot down Gates' absurd race-baiting. Don't misinterpret the actions or words of a few with the beliefs of many...

                              Hispanics are the minorities? Surely you jest! Whites are now the minorities. I included a link with this information from NPR so the source won't be an issue to my esteemed opposition. In the future, please try to state facts in your assertions, or at least make them plausible.

                              Whites Now the Minority in Texas
