I know who I am and I am also not going to back down from anything I said. There is a HUGE under current of racism in this country and it is just now being brought to the surface thanks in part to the desperation of the McCain Palin campaign. It disgusts me to read however I am not surprised. I firmly believe that most of America is not racist and that they will look at the issues and then decide who best represents their interests and vote.
    The fact is racism in this country works both ways. I know several wonderful, strong black Christian families in my church and they would not be caught dead voting for Obama. That being said though there happens to be a lot of blacks that are voting for Obama because he "is" black and it makes no difference that he may be the absolute worst, most socialistic and corrupt candidate we have had in a long time. If that is not racist I don't know what is.

  4. Corrupt? I have not seen mention of that even on Fox? If you want to talk about corruption maybe we should bring up the Keating 5 scandal or how about Sara for the oil pipeline contracts that only allowed bids from campaign contributors or the contractors who built the new sports arena in Wassilla and also built the mayors house at no charge.

    I only used the word corrupt because I did not think it appropriate to say what I really think about him. Lets just say I think he has all the potential to be one of the great dictators of all time. Vote for him if you want but be prepared for what you will get.

    The Tenth Commandment [thou shalt not covet] sends a message to collectivists, to people who believe wealth is best obtained by redistribution. And the message is clear and concise: Go to hell.

    If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else's expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves.

    Thomas Sowell (1992)

    The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism, but under the name of Liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program until one day America will be a Socialist nation without knowing how it happened.

    Norman Thomas - Socialist Party Presidential candidate (1976)

    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot further the brotherhood of many by encouraging class hatred. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn. You cannot build character and courage by taking away mans initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

    No republic has long outlived the discovery by a majority of its people that they could vote themselves largesse from the public treasury.

    the KEating 5 was 1 Republican and 4 Democrats....even nobama decided not to bring it up....all it proves statistically is that there are 4 times as many crooks in the Dem party as in the Repubs...

    Glenn and McCain: cleared of impropriety but criticized for poor judgment
    The Senate Ethics Committee ruled that the involvement of Glenn in the scheme was minimal, and the charges against him were dropped.[55] He was only criticized by the Committee for "poor judgment."[58]

    The Ethics Committee ruled that the involvement of McCain in the scheme was also minimal, and he too was cleared of all charges against him.[56][55] McCain was criticized by the Committee for exercising "poor judgment" when he met with the federal regulators on Keating's behalf.[7] The report also said that McCain's "actions were not improper nor attended with gross negligence and did not reach the level of requiring institutional action against him....Senator McCain has violated no law of the United States or specific Rule of the United States Senate."[59] On his Keating Five experience, McCain has said: "The appearance of it was wrong. It's a wrong appearance when a group of senators appear in a meeting with a group of regulators, because it conveys the impression of undue and improper influence. And it was the wrong thing to do."[7]

    Regardless of the level of their involvement, both senators were greatly affected by it. McCain would write in 2002 that attending the two April 1987 meetings was "the worst mistake of my life".[60] Glenn has described the Senate Ethics Committee investigation as the low point of his life.[8]

    The Senate Ethics Committee did not pursue, for lack of jurisdiction, any possible ethics breaches in McCain's delayed reimbursements to Keating for trips at the latter's expense, because they occurred while McCain was in the House.[57] The House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct said that it too lacked jurisdiction, because McCain was no longer in the House.[61] It said it did not require that McCain amend his existing financial disclosure forms for his House years, on the grounds that McCain had now fully reimbursed Keating's company

  7. Somebody explain to me how you cut taxes on 95% of the people when 40% don't pay taxes at all?

    A slight of hand trick. Take money from those that will work and give it to those that live off of others.

    It's called a lie. It's what politicians do while their lips are moving.
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam

    Can't we at least give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he's referring to 95% of those who pay taxes

    Just kidding of course. He's a politician doing what politicians do, which is saying whatever they need to say to get elected.
