You can't have one without the other. They are vitally linked. Look around at African and Middle Eastern nation where religious liberty doesn't exist. See much individual freedom in those places?

What's Next for Ben Carson?

Tell me Jay_P, why are all black conservatives considered "tokens"? I am black, and conservative. I realized as a 18 year old boy that I had deeply held conservative values. I did not learn them from my family. They are overwhelmingly liberal democrats, as is my church and pretty much every one that I associate with. I just figured out who I was and what was important to me as a person. That has not changed over the past 30 plus years. Conservatism is not so much a political leaning as is it a set of values and a rational approach to what works and what doesn't, and the things that have made this nation great. I don't consider myself a token for feeling that way, and nor does Dr. Carson, I am sure of it.
My wife and I (both Black Conservatives) were just discussing how Condeleza Rice never got the recognition and respect she deserved from the black community, just because she was Republican. The first African American woman to serve as U. S. Secretary of State, among her many other accomplishments, was mostly just ridiculed and mocked by the community. That is racism of the worst kind. Let's not even mention Alan West, J. C. Watts or Herman Cain.
Yup, her too.
I hate to demean this meaningful and substantive discourse like this but... Michelle Malkin is just down-right beautiful, smart, and incredibly funny. This seems to be the case with most Conservative women. including the one that I am married to.
I grew up in a rural area of Souther Maryland, on a tobacco farm in the 60s and 70's. Everyone, and I mean everyone in my area had a guns. Often in plain sight in their homes. My grandfather, the proud dad of eight beautiful daughters, kept his shotgun in the corner of his bedroom. Everyone hunted, or had guns for protection. I don't know of one, not one incident of anyone being shot or going on some shooting rampage. It is the culture, not the guns. I agree that stricter gun "laws" would only jeapordize law-abiding citizens. Criminals, by definition, would have no regard for such laws. The Liberal/Progressive's refusal to look at these types of issues rationally, is simply astounding.
Could be worse. You could live in Maryland, like me, where my Republican vote means absolutely nothing, where same-sex marriage was just legalized, and where illegal immigrants were just handed the rights to in-state tuition for public colleges and universities.
"You People"? That's racism if I have ever heard it. For the record - I am young, non-rich, non-white (African-American) and Obama most definitely does not speak for me. BTY, Obama himself is a 50 year-old, very rich, half-white guy. So, what great perspective is he speaking from again? I forget.
I think you mean Crist. Actually, now that I think about it, maybe not so different than Christ. Hmmm.
Chuckle, chuckle...You're struggling Andre, You're struggling....Chuckle, chuckle. "Well, first of all Governor....Um....First of all....." PRICELESS!
