VOTE SMART, I.E. KNOW WHAT THE CANDIDATES BELIEVE

It isn't that having a President who isn't considered "white" bothers some people to the point of being uncivilized, assaulting people and encouragement of anarchy and sedition, it is that they are afraid if our biracial President is successful or perceived as successful, there may be another "black" President. And these people cannot bear that thought.

This is the most crazy-making election season I can remember in my life time.

I believe that Nazi signs about our President, irrational dislike for President Obama, irresponsible behavior by John Boehner, bullying antics, the stirring up of hate by Sarah Palin, Glen Beck and on and on ~ are rooted in overt and covert racism.

For example
Where was all this outrage about our out-of-control budget, when George W Bush was running our national debt off a cliff? The silence from the political right about the hole the USA government was operating in during President GW Bush's two terms was blatant.

And since President Obama was elected, the racists have become emboldened and now we are on the edge of having the crazed bigots represent us in our House of Representatives and Senate.

When the one of the Dixie Chicks said that she wasn't proud of then President GW Bush, there was outrage on Fox TV about speaking this way about a sitting President. Rationally, one could ask why it is okay to degrade the current sitting President. Fox TV is leading the way in the degrading of President Obama.

It isn't enough to vote. We need to be fully aware of who we are voting for. And we need to hold them accountable and most don't take the time to do that. It is like another job to do so.

I feel many vote for people they don't know anything about. And many vote their prejudices, their narrow-mindedness. So if more of those who are guided by their prejudices and narrow-mindedness vote than those who aren't guided by prejudices and narrow-mindedness, we will have some rough times ahead. Rough times that we have no idea how bad it will be.
