To the extent that we will do anything to keep our ideas dominant (This can be seen in an essay titles "why we Must Kill Those Bastards" written by General Nathan Bedford Forrest, one of six founders of the KKK and a Civil War hero).  I am in no way trying to say that Rick Perry is associated with racialists, racism, the KKK or any other Neo-Nazi group, just explaining why I have a hard time with his Strong Campaign.

Sorry Jim Naylor, I think Rick Perry is fighting against your "liberal attacks on our heritage."  Don't you know that our faith made America strong?
