Republicans articulate this mathematical statement; "Republicans = Holding our founding fathers and the Constitution in high esteem." I politely ask, "You mean Republicans want a return to slavery for people with the wrong skin color?" Again, when Jesus says, "How you treat the least amongst you, is how you treat me."

They also made up a bulk of the anti-slavery movement.

Small minds always leap to the answers given the last time around, which is probably why Maxine Waters keeps getting re-elected. But the last time is not necessarily the same as this time. A terrorist attack is not the same as the Cold War, a war in Afghanistan is not the same as a war in Iraq, and Mitt Romney is not the same as John McCain or Bob Dole.

But since the election, many conservatives seem to be coalescing around the explanation for our defeat given by Jenny Beth Martin of the Tea Party Patriots, who said: "What we...
