^ You would have to be in a time warp or in a whole other world not to know what that means

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

End result? Minorities will once again be disgusted with the fools at the GOP. Just another example of the once formidable Republican Party becoming the marginalized White People's Southern Christian Party.
FTL,
You are a real condescending brat rat.

Well, being niggardly with your 'niggers' isn't necessarily a bad thing.
