These people are terrifying. I can't believe that they are being allowed to have a say in who becomes the most powerful man in the world. Not agreeing with his policies I can totally understand, but "I can't stand to look at him"? WTF?!

Gotcha!

That is the fatal flaw of democracy.

When you see the crowd behind/around McCain, it does not reflect the "real" America.

When you see the crowd behind/around Obama, you see "America."
Rest in Power Elijah Cummings. Thank you for your fight for human rights/justice. Your legacy will never die in vain.

i noticed too, when the last debates were over they had the 'undecided' that they had from bowling green ohio especially the 4 that were definite mccain seemed so staged. there was something like 4 for mccain 4 for obama and then the rest were still un-sure, but leaning towards obama.

the 3 guys for mccain were so stereo typed and seemed coached on what to say when asked about their thoughts.

Keep in mind, the Republicans make people sign Loyalty Oaths before they can attend a rally.

Can you imagine George Washington or Thomas Jefferson making their crowds sign a Loyalty Oath?

LOL.

I sure did see a lot of men and women who were concerned about Muslim terrorists, and were of fighting age, but somehow were not in the Army, fighting Muslim terrorists.

I wonder if Hiin and SeekingTruth were in that crowd?

How about the McCain supporter that, in response to the question of whether rape victims should have to pay for rape kits, said "She should die!"?

I mean, it's not as hateful as calling Obama "the Messiah", but still...

The word "smart" should never be used in reference to right wingers. Ever.

It's so clear now, that prior to these recent weeks, racist middle America didn't have much to say, as long as they were certain that their "place" at the table was not challenged, and that the Black man would never be allowed past the kitchen. But now that they see that a Black man is about to take over the highest office in all the land, they're mad as fuck! They talkin' bout how they "can't believe it!". WHAT?!? Well what does that say for race relations all before this? Hell, I couldn't believe it when W got elected for a second term, let alone the first! But as long as it was just the poor that were disappointed, or just people of color whose hopes were dashed aside, they didn't have shit to say.

But now here's a Black man, Barack Obama, who is actually trying to HELP. Them, as well as the entire country! And they AIN'T having it! As if there was some unwritten law that only White men could be elected President! What were those people that are now screaming bloody murder thinking? And those same racist people know good and damned well Obama is not a terrorist! And I'm pretty damned certain they know he's not a Muslim either (as if that would be such a crime anyway - as if every Muslim is a terrorist!). Because first they call him a Muslim, then they turn around and want to talk shit about his Christian pastor, lol! Dayum, is he a Muslim or a Christian? They don't even care! Just whichever one sounds worse at the time, lol! Which comes down to the realization that it can't be either one of those things, it must be the color of his skin! And they won't even say it. They don't even have the balls to say "We don't want Obama to be President because he is Black". So instead they say... "Obama called Sarah Palin a pig in lipstick!" LMAO!!! Oh snap! 4-REALZ?!? That's the best they can come up with??? LMAO!!!

I don't know why I'm so surprised at all this, because I actually expected it when I first learned of Obama running for President. I couldn't even understand why Oprah was supporting him over Hillary. At the time I figured "Barack Obama doesn't stand a snowball's chance in Hell", lol. But then I kind of forgot about it because the whole world seemed to support Barack. Well, I guess that's before they realized he actually had a shot.

I want to be sure and put it out there though that my rant is not to say all White people are racists. Because I have felt encouraged by the huge amount of support many in the White communities have shown for Barack. Basically anyone with even a ounce of intelligence supports Barack. And I should also say that I've known racists of every ethnicity. But what I'm seeing in the final days of this election have really given me a lot to think about. I'm hoping that now that all the undercover racists have come out their closet to call for the murder of this good man, and once this good man takes office and turns the world around for the better; maybe finally... finally... once and for all, we can put all this racism bullshit and hatred to rest and move on.

That's what you get when you substitute hate speech for argumentation.

Villifying and de-humanizing your enemy -- calling them terrorists and baby killers, (indirectly of course, of course) all the while vehemently arguing for the case of "just war" -- has this blowback effect on your own followers.

These people are as much victims of McCain's and the right wing's strategy as anything.

Hopefully this is just a temporary thing. But I can't help but notice the similarity to the extreme anger in Clinton and her supporters (and in Bill) towards the end of her campaign. An anger that she was also instrumental in creating. An anger that is so vehement because it isn't about ideology, it's about how dare he.

Republicans.... the party of the dividers.

Look at the last 8 years, nothing but division.

We have one candidate that wants to unify the country. One that does not use hate and scare tactics to get votes.
Which candidate would that be??

That One!

You betcha!

People wonder why I will never leave California disbelief

The most absurd thing about this is that everythng they fear, has happened under their OWN PARTY.

"She should pay double"… in response to raped women having to pay for the rape kits. There aren't emoticons sufficeint to represent the absolute horror of this statement.

This is the true mentality of the "right to life". I keep telling people they are hostile to rape victims and the fact that there is such beligerence towards a person who has been violated in the worst way speaks volumes to the inhumanity of the generation that McCain represents and why we so badly need a change from the old guard to the new.

they are the last of a dying breed.
Ohio fears its population becoming extinct because all their children are leaving and living elsewhere for better education and better lives.
This should be a huge indicator that they are finally dying off, just not soon enough.

The difference between the two sets of supporters (in general) is stark. One is a picture of positivity and hope, the other fear and anger. It says a lot I think...


Need I remind you that the fear and anger crowd won the last two presidential elections?

If you don't get right in their faces and call their candidates exactly what they are - lying, adultering shitty people - they will continue to spread fear, anger and lies unabated.

You have to rock them back on their heels or they will continue to spread these lies and ultimately, those lies WILL change minds the wrong way.

History shows that will happen.

So you fight right back:

1. John McCain is an adulterer
2. John McCain abandoned his wife and his child and fucked around on them
3. John McCain is so untrustworthy that his new wife and new father-in-law made him sign a pre-nup
4. NO MAN OF CHARACTER WOULD EVER SIGN A PRE-NUP. EVER
5. John McCain's wife is a drug addict and stole drugs from her own charity. How much lower can you get than that?
6. Sarah Palin threw her own daughter under the bus
7. Sarah Palin completely disregarded the health of her unborn son by traveling by air AFTER her water broke. AND SHE DIDN'T EVEN THINK ENOUGH OF TRIG TO TELL THE AIRLINES OF HER CONDITION
8. John McCain had an alliance with an organization that supported Nazi collaborators and death squads. For all practical purposes, this makes John McCain a Nazi collaborator
9. Did you hear me? John McCain is a Nazi collaborator
10. Sarah Palin believes she is above the Rule of Law. She has disregarded legal subpoenas, just because she wanted to
11. Todd Palin is pussy-whipped.
12. For that matter, so is John McCain
13. Todd Palin hates America so much that he was a member of a party built around the idea of Alaska seceding from America
14. Todd Palin did not join the Republican party until three weeks agoThese people are despicable people. They are bad Americans. Hell, at least one of them doesn't even WANT to be an American. No true patriot would even consider voting for people that are Nazi sympathizers, secessionist, and don't respect the same Rule of Law that you and I do.

Put America first. Vote Obama!
