    I simply do not believe that those who are racists/homophobes are people I would trust on any matter.  It is a fundamental moral defect in a person to be a racist or homophobe today.  
    I'm not a libertarian, and would have little objection to using the government to forcibly change the views of racist/homophobes.

    Don't call these racist thugs the tea party, they are *teabaggers*! Please don't insult the original Tea Party as they were patriots. Call them TeaBaggers!

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936
