In fact only 2 people in this thread have brought race into the discussion to try and demonize those with a different beliefs when they cant defend a position. Those 2 people just so happen to be those with the most extreme progressive liberal views, you and Opi. That leads me to believe it might be those on the left who have the real problem with race but choose to project that hate on others to cover their own views
hahah if that's true, then why are homosexual republicans considered "log cabin" republicans? gee, how nice of them to make a distinction, put them in their own "place" eh? who's projecting now?

btw, race has always, and will be, part of this election.

Most of the time I miss them as I mainly scan the posts rather than read verbatim.
Was not calling you out. He had used the term among others numerous times so i figured this way would allow some group moderation.

I'm sorry, what does race have to do with being gay?

As far as "log cabin republicans", I've never heard that term outside of family guy. Who came up with it?

Log Cabin republican has been around for quite a while, I want to say 90's a the latest.

All groups are prone to developing and identifying subsets within the group, you have blue dog Democrats, etc. It isn't a right wing phenomenon.

Some have a very hard time voicing their opinion w/o use of inflammatories. I "don't" blame our schools for that. It is done consciously w/ intended purpose to incite....Some people just want to watch the Thread burn.

Oh this is classic; Romney supporters (presumably republicans) getting touchy about being pounded.

I guess that's better than wanting to "slit throats", but it doesn't beat magic underwear to ward off evil spirits. If he becomes President, I wonder if they'll really work? Could he possible walk right into Tehran with bullets bouncing off him, kinda like in the Matrix?
