How many white people will be granted citizenship under this change?
Must be nice that you can afford to let others do the dirty work while you stay pure.
“The primaries are over, ABO IS Romney.”
The term “anybody” could include Virgil Goode... unless you’re changing the dictionary definition.
“Well said! Too bad that many, especially many here who are supposed to be “the cream of the crop” of conservatives, still don’t grasp this.”
Yeah, yeah... too bad.
Now can you please stop spamming FR with ABO posts bashing principled conservatives that have different views? I thought Jim called a truce? You’re not going to win this argument, I promise that much.
