LOL Coming from you, that's a HUGE compliment.
"Diversity is a poisonous influence on America"? That comes off as a demeaning, ethnocentric statement. There is a huge difference between the term "diversity" and the term "multiculturalism." "Diversity" refers specifically to race, while "multiculturalism" refers to cultural diversity - habits and customs (including those of immigrants from the UK, Ireland, etc. who are somehow never singled out. Are they all legal? Has anyone checked their status or are they not as unwelcomed as some?). I'm not a proponent of multiculturalism when, in the end, the citizen's loyalty does not belong to the U.S., but to the mother country. This contributes to the lack of national pride. However, I am also judiciously aware that, except for the same, select few, many Americans of other racial groups are grossly under-represented in American culture. In this sense, I become a staunch supporter of diversity.

Who cares about labels? Is only one party paying through-the-roof prices for food, gas, insurance, etc.? I don't buy into divisive and archaic partisan labels. They're just a tool to keep the citizenry pitted against each other, distracted, and therefore, impaired.

Who are we kidding here? The now left-enslaved Democrat party thrives on the mantra, "The ends justify the means." They will do whatever it takes to "win" elections. The great thing is that the American people - of ALL labels - are seeing the truth. Oh yes, we SHALL overcome.

I'm an independent voter, but GOP losers? ANY one of them would have done an exceedingly better job than the "holy and perfect one" who descended from the majestic, lofty heights of Mt. Olympus - complete with faux Greek columns! All the kitschy hype couldn't even bask for 15 minutes in the limelight before everything started caving in.

Proof of voter fraud? lol From the most excruciatingly inept and fraudulent administration? This doesn't even require a scintilla of cerebral activity. The American people were so elated with sky-high prices, unemployment (especially for black youth - 14% and rising), massive upsurge in dependency-inducing freebies, etc., that we collectively clamored, "Give us MORE!!!".
A Korean born and raised in Japan isn't even allowed to possess a Japanese passport. They're issued alien resident documents.
Inferior races? I can't believe I'm reading such a statement. First of all, what constitutes an inferior race and what, in your opinion, are the inferior races in this country?
I don't support Ron Paul but he is one of the few who gets it about what racism really is. Here are some excerpts from his piece on the subject....and, let he that isn't guilty throw the first stone. Racism blinds everyone to itself. "Racism is simply an ugly form of collectivism, which is the mindset that views humans strictly as members of groups rather than as individuals. Racists believe that all individuals who share superficial physical characteristics are alike. As collectivists, racists think only in terms of groups....Racism will endure until we stop thinking in terms of groups and begin thinking in terms of individual liberty."
