While god has nothing to do with the subject , I fully empathize with your feelings and have done so most of my life. I consider myself a Democratic Socialist after rescinding my Independent status so I could vote for Bernie Sanders in the primary. To me conservative ideology is anathema. I cannot understand why any person of color would be part of a Republican movement, a movement that is xenophobic, openly bigoted and intolerant of those with beliefs other than their own. So conservative = Republican. Republicans parade black men — Alan West, Dr. Ben Carson - as if Republicans will be the savior of black citizens, What , if anything, have they ever done to understand the black experience and attempt improvement to it?
