However, Rep. Carson is very correct. The GOP, the Tea Nazis and the Religious Right, including the very Republican pope and bishops(my religion) are very racist. The GOP and the popes supported slavery for many many years. They said it was in the bible, so they did it, they enslaved Black people for their Trickle-down economic purposes. There is a book written on the Catholic church's support of slavery. After Lyndon Johnson signed the Great Society legislation legislating civil rights and voter rights he told his Press Secretary the now great Bill Moyers that he thouhght he just gave the entire south to the Repub party. He was totally correct. The Dems that supported slavery and hated Black people moved into the Repub party. Those Dems like Sen. Robert Byrd who finally decided that slavery was wrong stayed in the Dem party. Shortly after that, in 1968, Kevin Phillips, Nixon's political strategist southernized the Repub party. He now says that is the worst thing he ever did and he deeply regrets it. He feels that it has turned the GOP into a bunch of crazies who are owned and controlled by BIG Oil, BIG Pharma, Big Finance and BIG Religion. They no longer think for themselves. The Republican party and all of it's parts are corrupt and as of 2004 I no longer vote for any of them. Power and greed have corrupted them. Where is the Repub party of Eisenhower, Gerald Ford and Barry Goldwater?? They were good people!! Before he died, Barry Goldwater said of the Republican party: "This is not what I intended", and: they would not even allow me in the Republican party anymore. Those statements are telling and very, very damning! The Repub party, the Tea Nazis and the Religious Right want to take America back to before the Civil War. It's too bad they lost the Civil War. I wish they had won it. Then they could have seceded from the union and become their own separate nation, The Confederate States. The rest of us would have become our own nation, The United States of America. We don't need them and we would be far better off without them. They are just not worth it, all the trouble, the hate, the misery and the death they cause. Let them keep their racism and hate for minorities. Let them keep their great greed for money, their endless lust for political power and their worship of things and their hate for human beings. They are a bunch of loonies, cretins, Mad Hatters, Tin Foil Hatters, screwballs and miscreants who all think everyone is out to get them and cheat them. They are led by O'Reilly Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh and many others who spew out hate, invective, belligerence, hostility, viciousness, war/kill/death for oil, profit and theology and the endless, endless worship of money, mammon, the golden idol. They hear and heard this from FOX, NBC and now CNN. I understand, It's a religious thing. But it's destroying what little is left of America and turning us into a Theo-Fascist corporate nation that truly is hell bent. I am an Independent voter and always have been ever since I first voted in the mid 60s.

There is a book written on the Catholic church’s support of slavery.

After Lyndon Johnson signed the Great Society legislation legislating civil rights and voter rights he told his Press Secretary the now great Bill Moyers that he thouhght he just gave the entire south to the Repub party. He was totally correct. The Dems that supported slavery and hated Black people moved into the Repub party. Those Dems like Sen.

Don't tell me the tea nazi's aren't harboring racist hate mongers in their midst, they are trying to hide it now, but with great effort. They tell their militant members to "keep it cool" so as to not look like a nice buncha white folks who are just so darned tired of government excess.

I am a 56 year old white male in Texas and a 3rd generation Texan. Rick Perry is the worst tea party and the most evil in the debate last night. I will never vote for him for anything. Perry's pledge to never raise taxes had a reckoning this year, when his budget faced a $27-billion shortfall. With taxes not an option, Texas cut deeply into health care and so deeply into education, some 49,000 teachers are being fired. The tea party is pure evil.

It is now the rich vs the poor. The rich get richer by the work the poor man does. The rich are not only white and the poor are not all black. Everyone deserves the dignity of health care. The idea that a poor man should die so that I can buy a new car, or a Coach purse, should make the entire world spin off it's axis.

I laugh everytime I hear someone calling another racist. It has no meaning anymore. These morons show there depravity when they use these vulgar analogies and terms like the sexually explicate "teabagger" reference. They thinking is contorted to say the least. The left in this country is a plague with no cure. You would think the novelty of the race card would have off enough now for these shockjock “politicians” to start beating another dead horse.

She would be ashamed that you share her name, especially since that is all you used to get elected. I will never support your family ever again, even if it means voting Republican. You have set our people and our cause back decades with your hateful and dishonest statements, your lies, your patronizing to your constituates. We are not all welfare recipients, single mothers, and former crack heads. Even though this is how YOU treat us, as if we were children who needed guiding.
