DZUR, You answered Art1 on the issue of liberals and the US welfare system quite well. As Democrats are openly calling for the reinstitution of the "fairness doctrine" which is fair only to liberals, and as they are also openly calling for the nationalization of oil refineries, and some even of the entire oil industry we know for a fact that they are socialists...socialists intent on gaining and retaining power regardless of the price. As to Obama being racist...I don't think he's so much a racist as he will use the issue of race to his advantage whenever possible. I wish the Republican Party would have picked Mitt Romney instead of McCain, I'm having serious doubts about McCain's ability to defeat Obama...and McCain doesn't really have conservative credentials. I am a NON-GAY BASHING Republican.
