4. I never saw much "reasoning" or thought involved in it - some of my republican relatives
Edited on Wed Apr-21-10 01:40 AM by old mark
seem like decent people, yet at family gatherings will sit calmly and talk about "dirty jews", the terrible immigrant problem and even how the evil refugees from hurricane Katrina are ruining their city. They make a lot of money in jobs that put others out of work-one worked for about 10 years sending US jobs to India-hate the idea of health insurance reform and think the Democrats are dangerous to America. They think Newt Gingrich is "so smart!" and admire him a lot.

They are good people till you really spend time with them and learn how nasty and hate full they are.
