Response to freshwest (Reply #22)

23. "those eyes, the window to the soul"

They are freshwest, they truly are.

On October 10, 2008, a public letter to Senator John McCain and Sarah Palin from Schaeffer was published in the Baltimore Sun newspaper. The letter contained an impassioned plea for McCain to arrest what Schaeffer perceived as a hateful, and prejudiced tone of the Republican Party's election campaign. Schaeffer was convinced that there was a pronounced danger that fringe groups in America could be goaded into pursuing violence. "If you do not stand up for all that is good in America and declare that Senator Obama is a patriot, fit for office, and denounce your hate-filled supporters ... history will hold you responsible for all that follows."


Soon after Obama's inauguration, Schaeffer criticized Republican leaders:
How can anyone who loves our country support the Republicans now?
Barry Goldwater, William F. Buckley and Ronald Reagan defined the modern conservatism that used to be what the Republican Party I belonged to was about. Today no actual conservative can be a Republican. Reagan would despise today's wholly negative Republican Party.


In February 2010, Schaeffer accused President Obama's critics of being racist.

Schaeffer is a good man freshwest.
