Let me say this first. Rush does not speak for the conservatives. He speaks to his "base" which in turn makes him goo gobs of money. The sad thing is that most of his "base" are too low on social-economic totem pole to even matter to the GOP. But they are fairly simple minded folks who follow blindly and are easily race baited. Rush...Hannity and the like preach that nothing in this country is fair because of Blacks or Hispanics and of course we cant forget those evil gay people and their audience eats it up. Meanwhile our country went to sh*t under GWB who was a puppet and not a very good one. The WEALTHY got rich and the middle class got driven into the ground. President Obama provides the perfect fuel to their fire. He's 1/2 black which in this country makes you ..well ...BLACK..and he's smart, articulate...he has a few political connections and a few good ideas- PERFECT! This scares the living daylights out of the typical bigot and will surely provide him with enough material for the next 4 years.
My lovely wife is a Christian; I however do not consider myself as such. I believe in a higher power but that's about as far as I go with it. I feel that labeling oneself as a follower of one religious practice over another is akin to racism- it says that well I'm 110% correct in my beliefs and practices and so are those who subscribe to the same beliefs as I and anyone the message it sends to anyone else who perhaps doesn’t share this "faith"?... well you’re you're definitely going to hell, oh & I'm better than you... but it's not my fault - God said it or made it so.
