There is no senses more powerful than hate and fear, even love is behind them. We talked often how Bush' administration is exploiting fear to unite the nation in support of "the war on terror", while in fact fighting the "war for foreign oil". 

So now hate is in play. The absolute majority of this country hate Niggers, Gays and Latinos. The constitutional amendment that will ban a Nigger from marrying a white protestant girl will certainly play on this hate and unite many voters behind the great Republican party.

Divide and conquer. It's all the same in the last 2000 years.
