    It's certainly wasted on you.You haven't learned a darned thing.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    I have learned that Tolerance is a must if you are a liberal...
    unless of course, it is:
    Christianity
    Conservatism
    Republicans
    US Nationalism
    among others...

    that you have to tolerate.
    It slays me that there are so many blacks voting for Obama only because he is black, and that is not only OK, it is expected. Yet if I were to say that I am voting for McCain because he is white I would be labeled a racist and bigot so fast that my head would spin from it.
    Race is an issue in this election. Just not for the reasons that liberals say that it is. Race is an issue because it is a card that can be dealt from the bottom of the deck and often trumps everything else in one's hand. I am sick of it.

    What I don't understand Lids is how can you be for redistribution? When has it ever worked, what prosperous nation has ever been the result of Communism or Socialism? I agree with you in theory that everyone should be able to provide for their family as long as they're willing to work hard, but just who decides what standard of living we all have? Do you feel that Americans are owed or have the Right to a good job? Do we surrender free will to work a little harder then our neighbor, if we want things a little better then he/she has? What's the plan here?

    I thought it was obvious what Obama's plan is:

    It's simple, he is a full time student, i.e. no income. It always sounds good to those on the recieving end.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad
