I want to know exactly when my part became the "we are against rights" party?

Why can't he be a Republican and be for gay marriage? I was a Republican and was for it.

As for open boarders, I think people should be able to move freely and legally from country to country. I think that it should be easier to legally immigrate here. I also think that as before, illegal immigrants need to be punished for not going about it the right way.

Gator, the gay marriage issue is NOT at all "like the 2A". If you can't see that...let's be real clear then: one of the members of this board is IN a gay marriage while another is post-op transgender.

Bigotry isn't spoken here. Not without getting called on it.

Who posted Bigotry (My op had to do with a "So Called" member of the GOP who has got by on smoke & mirrors when it came to where he stood on Important Issues) and Gay Marrage , 2A ,Illegal Immigration, and others the left have a disdane for are back in the forefront now or soon will be )

Opposing gay marriage is NOT bigotry, it is a personal opinion.

Trying to paint views you oppose as 'racist' or 'bigoted' is both childish and foolish.

Yes, we have gay forum members and those who DO support gay marriage and they are welcome.
We also have forum members who do NOT support gay marriage and they are welcome too.

What's NOT spoken here without being called on it is people trying to falsely paint those who disagree with them as 'haters' or 'bigots'.

Knock off the 3rd grade level of argumentation.

Legitimate comment Gator, last I heard, he supported bans of EBR's.

I guess Colin Powell supports our right to have "sporting arms", but not arms useful for restoring our rights by force.

I could deal with him being Pro Choice on Abortion (I'm Pro Life) if he was pro choice on the rest of our rights. Apparently he is "selective choice".

He is probably selective on the bill of rights too I guess.

I would let him rejoin the Republican party provided he got remedial lessons on how to be a "true conservative" from Congressman Ron Paul.:43:

Exactly! I'm an NRA member, I voted for McCain, I haven't voted for anyone running for any office as a Democrat for at least 15 years. My religion doesn't admit the concept of gay marriage. And I voted no on 8, because I'm pro-freedom, even if it means that other people get to do things that I don't like.

As for open boarders, I think people should be able to move freely and legally from country to country.

There's a lot to be said for that viewpoint. Border fences face both ways. What keeps others out, keeps us in. The Soviet Union had a secure border. I well remember Berlin's secure border.

I have no clue where Powell stands on choice because it's not something that I care about, but he has always been a anti 2nd Amendment. That I do care about. He's a pro big government pro high tax gun grabber and that pretty much makes him the poster child for RINO in my book.

1. Powell supported obama instead of McCain
2. Has he come out against any of the big government power grabbing programs proposed by our excellent teleprompter reader commander-in-chief?

he's a big-time RINO, worst than ARRRRnold, at least da Governator campaigned for McCain.

I like McCain, but he lost my vote after he picked Palin as his VP. The only "RINO" I see are people who likes to call others "RINO." The only core value that was common to all Republicans was the desire to see a fiscally responsible government. Today we have Republican throwing around labels like "RINO" most of whom doesn't even bother to read the financial times or world news. . . . . this is what happens when we have "entertainers" running the GOP show.

I lost all respect for Colin Powell when he endorsed Obama. What a shame! To end such an illustrious career by endorsing a Socialist.

Oddly enough, that is when I decided to campaign for him. Well, and the days of non-stop class hatred, bigotry, and downright incitement to murder that followed in the press. :mad:

I now regret that I sent you money to support your defense. I most assuradly will not be sending any more. Maybe you'd do best to re-register as a Democrap.

And what exactly in his stated position makes him Democrat? Libertarians have the same position, as well as many, many Republicans who happened to run labor intensive businesses.

Besides.... talking about poor taste.

You are not willing to contribute in defense of Democrats' gun-rights? Talking about being short-sighted.

There's a BIG difference between a "secure border" and a prison. East Germany was a prison and people risked their lives to get out. I've never heard of anybody risking his/her life to get out of the US. Because we are a nation-state we have the right to control who comes to this country. This is OUR country, as long as we can keep it, and I'm not one who advocates we just give it up to anybody who wants to cross the border.

That is clear as bell. That is why I would appreciate your input on how does advocating "free flow of labour and goods" makes one democrat? It was Republicans who allowed Clinton to push NAFTA through, remember? And repealing NAFTA was big theme during Democratic primaries?

So, unless there are some history that I simply don't know about you statement appears to be factually incorrect.

Pretty much yes, that crowd. The one that borrowed tactics from the Janjaweed militia and decided to pursue partisan politics by engaging in the symbolic gang-rape of a woman of a group they despised as a warning to others not to "act out" and get involved in politics on the "wrong" side.
