Also, whites are just oppressive, they made the indians walk on the trail of tears, forgetting the fact that the indians were murdering colonials and were warring against each other right next door to the colonies, they made blacks into slaves, even though the african war lords are the ones that enslaved them and sold them for profit much like they do with the arab countries today; dummies love multiculturalism, except for white culture, they think that white people have been so oppressive, historical facts and context be damned, and that the culture of africans( notice how I said africans and not blacks Dummies probably think only black people can be from africa) such as slavery, blood diamond mining, perpetual civil war, and 3rd world standard of living in much of the continent.
Dummies think the only reason why southerners are poor is because they just haven't cashed in their white privilege, and that blacks will always need government to make sure they succeed.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

And I wouldn't say I'd vote for Obama no matter what. I'll just say that nearly anytime I've voted Republican, I regretted it later. Can't help what I think.In memory of those who have died protecting a society that hasn't always deserved it.

I believe in helping others become successful instead of slamming the door behind me. I'd like all the single moms on welfare (most of welfare recipients) to get enough education to get a decent paying job. I would like parents to feel like they don't have to choose between working for wages and their children's healthcare or their healthcare.
I have more than one friend applying for disability because they can't work. It's not that they don't want to work. They were working. It's that they can't work. They're being denied medicaid right now. Because they're still trying to get some income, they can't get private assistance from charities (because they're still considered to be applying for medicaid). These people are in crappy health. NOBODY should be denied healthcare. Yeah, ERs are certainly nice. It would be better if people could get the rehab they need, the medicine they need, and so forth to prevent an ER visit.
In case you haven't noticed, I'm suddenly wanting to talk about why I'm voting for Obama. Carrying on.
People say I should vote for Romney because of abortion. Do people not realize that before this Presidential election, Romney was pro-choice and for gay rights? What on earth makes people think things would be different now? Ryan? The VP doesn't do much. And while I'm talking about Romney's flip flop attitude, I just wanted to remind everybody of his healthcare ideas in MA. He actually used that to demonstrate why he cared about the poor. Really? The healthcare plan which you say you'll repeal on a national level is proof that you care about the poor?
The key to reducing abortion is reducing poverty. That does mean helping people when they're down. It doesn't mean letting them stay on welfare. Our current system doesn't allow that. Five years. That's it. It means helping people when they're down and assisting them with getting the job training they need and the skills to get a job. Most abortions happen with people of poverty. Want to end abortion? End poverty.
Next argument: Obama hasn't brought enough employment.
Fact: Obama tried to get more work in and Republicans wouldn't go for it.
Next argument: Obama will raise your taxes.
Fact: It's been proven that the rich are getting extra tax cuts through loopholes. How can the rich talk about fair taxes when Mitt Romney says it's fair for him to be taxed less? I understand that they're the job creators, but where is his company right now? Not here. Companies should be given tax cuts for keeping their business here in America.
I'm going to the fair. Hope I get some free cheesecake out of rich Republicans.In memory of those who have died protecting a society that hasn't always deserved it.

Speaking for myself, I don't believe that the economy follows the president. I believe - and evidence seems to support me - that the economy follows the legislative branch, which was Republican from 95 till 2001, Democratic from 01 till 03, Republican from 03 till 07, and Democratic since, at least so far as the senate goes.
During their stay in power the Democrats passed Dodd-Frank, and assisted President Clinton in creating the housing and mortgage crisis as explained here:
What can be said in Clinton's favor is that in 1999 few people anticipated the out-of-control growth of the hedge fund industry and the subprime mortgage market.
In other words, they don't really give a shit about their constituency, they're just in it for themselves.

- Not all, or even most, people who are disabled are people who are going to vote for the Democrat who promises them more free stuff; IOW, the disabled are not representative of the 47%, and besides;
- even if the disabled 100% were people who would vote for the Democrat no matter what in order to get freebies, they are such a tiny sliver of the population as to be inconsequential. When was the last time that you heard about the all-important wheelchair voting bloc? Overall, the disabled (meaning either people who have some mental disturbance or those who are in a wheelchair or those who have some physical malady that prevents them from working or prevents them from full employment) is about 3% of the population as a whole.
The VP often has a strong hand in shaping policy, albeit usually pretty invisibly.
disagrees with you:
- Forty-two percent of women obtaining abortions have incomes below 100% of the federal poverty level
- Twenty-seven percent of women obtaining abortions have incomes between 100–199% of the federal
Women in their 20s account for more than half of all abortions; women aged 20–24 obtain 33% of all abortions, and women aged 25–29 obtain 24%.
Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

Why is it that when we talk about Romney he's a flip flopper but when it's Obama he's evolved?Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

It mostly depends on whether I want to debate. I like to discuss, but debating makes me feel like I'm banging my head up against the wall. A discussion between Adam and I is usually about my bringing up my points and him saying you're wrong wrong wrong, not even considering my side of things very much. It's been very frustrating (not just with him, but others as well). I'll look at his post and see.In memory of those who have died protecting a society that hasn't always deserved it.
