Why everything is right wingers fault 

Why must you blame everything on right-wingers?

Because much of America are backwards right-wingers and they are often the wrench in the gears of progress!

Have you ever spent much time in small towns? In Ashboro, NC my dad was railroaded out of town - he was the superintendent of schools and got off on the wrong foot with much of the town by promoting a black man to assistant principle. This was not a here and there thing - there was enough pressure on him so he eventually decided to resign. This was in 1988 or 1987.

I don't know what it is that makes the twisted version of Christianity appeal to so many people - and it's not because of the "rural" thing alone - most of the people I met in Appalachia were quite tolerant and enlightened.

The mindset just makes no sense: take the right-wing view of the courts. Right wingers are always afraid of the government getting down on them. The courts are the vehicle which protects the citizenry against government excesses, but for some reason, they hate an independent judiciary! They are in practice anarchists, but whenever I ask someone on the board who hates all government if they're an anarchist, the question doesn't even make sense to them. They don't even understand who they are!

So it is maybe not surprising that some come to hair brained ideas such as that Jews are trying to control the world by trying to make everybody use the metric system.

If it weren't for the minority of lunatics in America, a lot more good could be done.
