    Feminism has become a complete non-issue for the GOP. The issue is not only NOT debated within the GOP, but with the number of divorced and working mothers, to bring it up would be political suicide.

    Gay marriage is becoming less and less of an issue. Especially since shows like Will and Grace, and Iraqi and Afghanistan war heroes and fewer are complaining about the fear of being "peeped" at in the shower.

    Hispanics may not be the best target. They are 15% of the population and growing and share the Christian religion. This may not be a group to alienate, even though that is probably too late. Hispanics I know say they will not vote for the GOP in their lifetime. Some in Chicago even say they will NOT visit Arizona or Nevada, even though they have relatives there.

    That leaves Muslims. Their religion, though still founded by Abraham, and even though they believe in Jesus and Mary and see the Bible as one of their "holy books", their numbers are tiny and they "look different" enough that they make good targets.

    So, is this a good strategy for the GOP? Considering how well going after those other groups has worked in the past? Is it better to stick to the "tried and true" or branch out into targeting an "unknown" group?

    How are other Races, Women and Homosexuals Treated by Muslims in the ME?...

    Please, Inform the Class about the Religion you are Feeling the Need to Defend.

    I'm Assuming you Feel that The Kingdom Embraces Homosexuals and let's them Serve in the Military, as Opposed to Executing them in the Name of Allah...

    And of course, Women are 100% Equal with Men in the ME...

    And then there's other Races...

    You're an Ignorant Tool, RD. :lol:

    :)

    peace...

    Should not "go after" any group, that is divisive as hell, leave the social issues at the most local level, let people run their lives as much themselves as possible and let us return to the Party of personal responsibility,government non interventionism and fiscal restraint within the confines of the Constitution .

    They certainly seem to be the new boogeyman....along with gays. Gotta have something since the Soviet Union collapsed.

    Why do Republicans always look "down".

    Listen to this argument, "They are worse than us, so why complain?"

    Worse, Republicans believe they make a good argument that someone is "worse".

    The truth is that our secular laws protect us from the extremes of the religious. You only have to read this very board to know what many Republicans would do to gays if they got the chance and thought they could get away with it.

    What State has, "No such thing as freedom FROM religion", in their "Tea Party" Charter? What does that mean?

    Actually, Homosexuals basically Rest on the Human Flaws that Cause Divorce to Justify their Argument for getting Marriage...

    Project much?...

    My Observations of the Brutal Oppression that comes out of Organized Islam in the ME is simply that...

    They are what they are.

    They Execute Women, Children and Homosexuals for Absurd reasons...

    They Oppress entire Cultures Severely and they have EVERY Intention of Dominating the Planet with Islam.

    And these are the Primary Leaders in Islam, not only in the Religion but in the Governments they Control.

    But to you, not letting Homsoexuals Marry, as Obama Agrees, is the Worst thing ever done to Humanity?...

    :)

    peace...

    As you can see by whats going on, and has been going on especially since 9-11...Muslims are a great target for Cons.

    It works.

    The average Republican News Network watcher is as dumb as a doornail. And gullible as all getup. Very easily led and misled. Willingly even.

    That describes the average watcher and follower of MSNBC pretty well too :)
