And that’s a shame. A lot of them aren’t just “anti-immigrant”, but they’re also traditional racists and retro-bigots. I’m talking about the Neo-Con and Right Extremists. Even moderates have been alienated from the far right who also call themselves “Republican” and there has been so much infighting in the Republican Party. Most famously and recently between McCain and Palin`s campaign crews. And I say that Palin`s views are way too extreme with religion. As a former “Republican” myself, (I am now an Independent) and won’t be taking up the name Republican anytime soon or if ever…

I live in what is ordinarily referred to as the Bible Belt. And, where I hail from the dominant belief is that of the Southern Baptist. They are convinced that their views are the only correct and valid ones. And they can seem insufferable w. their literal and smugly self-righteous and, often, mean-spirited notions; not very Christian I think. They see nothing wrong w. knocking down the barriers between church and state.
