    Which Conservatives have ever advocated, marched, protested for, legislated, or championed any expansion of civil rights?

    Women's rights?

    Gay rights?

    Latino rights?

    They want the right to hate those groups. Does that count?

    Depends. Do you mean "expansion of rights" as in "let's throw more money at minority causes"? Or do you mean "expansion of rights" as in "let's treat everyone equally like the Constitution says"?

    How many liberals have championed 2A rights? How many have championed hunter's rights? How many have championed white people's rights when they were discriminated against, ala New Haven Firefighters?

    The GOP and Conservatives had very little to do with one another back in the early 1960s.

    Where does the opposition to those rights come from? Liberals or Conservatives?

    "DA BOOOOOOOOOSH!!" & "DOZE RAAACEEEEEEESTS!!" are all the Democrats have left. Pretty pathetic stuff. Time to show them the door in November. Make it happen America.
