I thought I should take a few lines and explain one of my views that I feel sets me apart from many other conservatives:
I believe that (1) racism exists, and (2) I believe that it is government's role to establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, and secure the blessings of liberty by doing something about countering racism. IHMO, the words "affirmative" and "action" when put together merely mean doing something about it; i.e. they literally mean to take positive steps against racism. To not do so, would be tacit approval of racism and the injustice that goes with it.
Now,,,,,what actions and steps are the right ones? That's a whole nuther topic. For now, let's just stick to #1 and #2.
