How is it that an opportunistic communist, plagiarist, womanizer and prostitute abusernamed Michael King--aka Martin Luther King--has his own special holiday with his assumed name attached to it, when the father of our country, George Washington, has to settle for "Presidents' Day" that isn'teven celebrated on the anniversary of his birth date?
There is something terribly wrong in Denmark going on here, folks. Anybody who will not acknowledge this shameful fact either is stupid, or too cowardly to confront the truth. I proclaim it to be a grievousassault on my intellect.Edited by: Wicked Warren

Please take a moment to tell your children about this great man. He fought for liberty and equality because he knew they were God-given and he knew that no government should be empowered to thwart our freedom. King summarized his mission when stating that no one should be judged based on skin color, but by the content of one's character.
Seeming to have a foreboding notion of how quickly life passes, he did not waste time on pettiness. He believed that “the quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.”
May our children follow in the footsteps of giants like King, who sincerely respected equality.

RXP. Rook takes pawn. Warren, is Palin truly playing the princess to Machiavelli's Prince? Or is she just another pawn in the game.

At this point, Garden State, it is anybody's guess. Yours and Nelson's are as good as mine.
Palin has said she believes in the sanctity of the Constitution; smaller government; less spending; the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; etc. Sheis aChristian. Our mortal enemies, the Marxist-Jew conspirators, are vehemently anti-Christian atheists. The two don't mix well. Something isn't adding up here.
IseeSarah as a person of character. I might be dead wrong; only time will tell. Meanwhile, I am guided by my gut instincts. We shall see. November, 2012, is still a long way in the future.
This is one debate of which I am growing weary, becausethere is no hope of ever attaining consensus. Shall we move on to something else?
Garden State, I just clicked on the link you provided in your last post. After reading Sarah's statements, I then read several of her readers' comments. Not to my surprise, I found that some of those readers agree with me. They like her and will vote for her if she runs for president, but they disagree with her admiration for the likes of pervert Michael (Martin Luther) King. I do not stand alone on this issue.

Warren, we all possess confirmation biases, which is the tendency to give extra weight to facts that support our predesired conclusions and judgements. Shall we move on? Well of course. It has been a spirited back and forth.
Your mind is made up as to the character and intentions of Ms. Palin, and the only desire of mine during these exchanges was to point out the non-nationalist positions, statements and ideology of Ms. Palin.
The chess game, its seems, will not be completed. However, I believe it is necessary for forum members not to simply allow Ms. Palin to jump across the board and queen herself in the process without critique.

One thing I've disagreed with Dr.Paul on...is his lauding of "Saint MLK" (albeit probably done to counter the "Newsletter controversy"</span>). That being said, I don't let praise of MLK serve as my (sole) litmus test for/of support. In '12, I'll do my research & back the most paleoconservative candidate.
