Rightardia quote of the week

Republicans have long seen themselves as synonymous with America, and everyone else as deviant and marginal.

SI Hayakawa talked about this  when he was in the US Senate. Republicans have often believed they own America.  Conservatives want a country in which workers live in company towns, shop in the company store or Wal-Mart and go to church every Sunday. In other words, they want to put Americans in a box they created.

If you want a life outside of that box, you must be a deviant or need to be marginalized. This is why blacks, Hispanics, artists, writers, agnostics, atheists, gays, the handicapped and union workers will always rub Republicans the wrong way. Anybody who is 'out-of-the-box' will not be appreciated by Republicans.
