I don't trust any site that heavily biased towards one political side or the other.

well you don't have to 'trust' it, it's not a news site, it's an opinion site. but it's not a fringe weirdo site.

in my opinion sites cross the line into that when they intentionally misquote, edit, take things out of context to match their viewpoint. WND is famous for leaving out half the story. huffpo tends to actually have journalistic integrity to go along with their opinions.

The Pubs have lost their way and are too much under the sway of the radical fundementalists, but to suggest a President ignore the other side of the aisle is retarded.

I was just thinking; this guy is in with Fallwell, Robertson and Dobson?

He has to be the most perverted moral cripple the country has ever seen and we should not listen to him.

Look at the tyranny of party--at what is called party allegiance, party loyalty--a snare invented by designing men for selfish purposes--and which turns voters into chattles, slaves, rabbits, and all the while their masters, and they themselves are shouting rubbish about liberty, independence, freedom of opinion, freedom of speech, honestly unconscious of the fantastic contradiction; and forgetting or ignoring that their fathers and the churches shouted the same blasphemies a generation earlier when they were closing their doors against the hunted slave, beating his handful of humane defenders with Bible texts and billies, and pocketing the insults and licking the shoes of his Southern master.

Radical fundamentalist?

Someone who believes in blowing people up because it is Allah's will is a radical fundamentalist. Someone who believes abortion is wrong is just someone who has a different opinion than some of the others do, and has a right to advocate that position as long as violence is not used.

Radical fundamentalist are considered those that supports terrorist, or at least have similar goals. For example, in 1994/1995, the FBI started a unit whose purpose was to investigate groups such as Al Qaeda. They called it the RFU, or Radical Fundamentalist Unit. The DIA labeled Al Qaeda, Islamic Jihad, and Egyptian Islamic Jihad as radical fundamentalist groups that use terror.

While not all radical fundamentalist are terrorist, the two are considered related.

There are fundamentalist in the Christian world. They are not radical, unless you consider voting a radical thing.

If the Islamic jihadists had an army like ours, they wouldn't have anything to do with the terrorists.

Probably true, but so what? If they had a fleet of starships, they probably wouldn't use terrorist tactics either.
