Just curious because of the tight race for the GOP nomination at this time....IF you are planning on voting GOP, which of the candidates would you support at this time & why?

Okay. What did you mean by this: "I can only guess what the progressive non-Republicans on this forum will answer." since the OP specifically asked if one were planning on voting GOP, which candidate would they choose?

What did you mean by this comment "If I were a Democrat, I'd switch to an honest party pronto." which had absolutely nothing to do with the OP's question?

I won't go into the comments about Obama's parents.

Others have said they would not respond to your comments on Obama's parents. They are tactful. I am not. What you delivered was a spiel of prejudice and bias; rather than an answer to the OP's question. By so doing, you missed an opportunity to take the high road and offer a thoughtful and civil message of support for Cain.

This topic is "In the News"...and since there is a rather large field of candidates vieing for the nomination, I was just curious as to who any conservatives here would vote for.

It doesn't have to turn into a brawl. Best way is to just let some comments be & not 'go there'. ;)

Both men are black. Race isn't a distinction between them. How you can get racism from someone who supports either man is beyond me. I would vote for Mr. Cain in a heartbeat.

Democrats were the southern party Republicans were created to fight. Republicans fought Democrats to end slavery. It's what our party was established to do. Later, the party of Jim Crow, was the Democrat party. Yet later, a Republican President sent U.S. troops in to enforce desegregation against a segregationist south. It was a Democrat (George Wallace) who stood up for segregation.

Later Democrats went for another form of racism, called affirmative action.

Since their inception Democrats have been race baiting, Republicans have been opposed. That is why I couldn't be a Democrat.

At the moment Democrats now seem to be going after the rich. Not certain yet, but I've seen a few reports about anti-semitic signs at occupy wall street protests. How pervasive this is, I don't know. Will Jewish bankers be the next target of Democrats?? I'd not like to be in a party that divides us on the basis of race, or wealth. Democrats seem to revel in this stuff.

You seem to be forgetting the part where Republicans of today would be Democrats of yesterday. The two parties have switched regarding their ideology. That's a fact.

As for any anti-semitic signs, which I haven't seen, but I'll take your word for it, I denounce anyone who does such a terrible thing. Unfortunately, with any type of group, you've got your loons. At least the Democrats denounce rotten behavior on the part of the loons instead of making excuses for them.

Still didn't answer my questions, but that's okay. I didn't think it would happen.

No,
The parties haven't switched. Democrats are still a race based party. Today it's affirmative action, yesterday it was separate but equal, Jim Crow and at it's inception Democrats were the party of slavery. I couldn't embrace that heritage, and couldn't be a part of it.
