    I've really come to that conclusion... These people (the GOP base) have been so indoctrinated (brainwashed) to believe Liberalism is Evil, they go to great lengths to vote against anything that seems remotely liberal even if it means voting against their own best interests, in other words… They cut off their nose to spite their face.

    EXCERPT:GOP base includes racist 'elements,' congressman charges

    CNN's Dana Davidsen
    (CNN) - Over 50 years after Congress passed the Civil Rights Act, the issue of race is back in the political headlines, after comments from Attorney General Eric Holder and events marking the anniversary of the law’s passage renewed the dialogue over race relations in the 21st century.

    Rep. Steve Israel, D-New York, said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that "not all" of his GOP colleagues are racist but "the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism."

    "Cutting off the nose to spite the face" is an expression used to describe a needlessly self-destructive over-reaction to a problem: "Don't cut off your nose to spite your face" is a warning against acting out of pique, or against pursuing revenge in a way that would damage oneself more than the object of one's anger.

    A search for truth will find injustice!
