Your Views: Racism is used by Democrats to demonize their political foes

There is hardly a day that goes by when Democrats fail to use the term "racism" in some sort of capacity regarding conservatives. It is the current buzz word that they hope will keep them relevant in upcoming elections since they have very little else to hang their hat on: the train wreck of Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner, endless executive actions without congressional approval, and the list goes on.
