The stand your ground laws are our modern version of lynching.

The voter suppression laws are our modern version of the Jim Crow laws.

The TEA Party is our modern version of the Ku Klux Klan.

On our planet, especially in America, there is no such thing as “they,” there is only “we.”

Independent Discussion Guidelines

Let's tackle each one quickly:

1. Stand your ground laws are legal. Lynching's were not. Obama co-sponsored a stand your ground law in Illinois.

2. Canada has an ID requirement to vote. They are not exactly "Jim Crow" kind of folks up there. If you want to vote, show your free, easy to get ID.

3. We're almost $17 *Trillion* in debt. We can't afford the large entitlement state or military budget/wars we have today. Some people want us to spend within our means and back off foreign invasions. For this reason they are crazy tea party nutbags - obviously.
