    Google him.

    He said that quote about Liberals when he introduced Palin at a rally.


    He's a red neck politician from a red state.

    I can't do it my brother. If I could I would, if only to ease some of the tension in my friendships .. and even with my wife and kids.

    Two days ago I had an elderly white woman angrily screaming in my face at a public gathering because I dared speak ill of Obama. I simply told her how good it made me feel to have her screaming at me in defense of a black man running for president. I told her I felt like kissing her .. kinda' eased the tension and she smiled. If Obama loses, it won't be because of race.

    There are 3 issues most important to me in this election ...

    WAR .. and Obama fails. I supported him during the primaries .. and the moment I started supporting him is when he said "We must not only bring our troops home from Iraq, but we must also address the mindset that sent them there" .. Cool, I was in .. sent him $400. Since the primaries he talks of war more aggresively than McCain and wants to expand it into Pakistan.

    After what we've done in Iraq, how can I support someone who wants to murder children to look presidential? No matter how it's twisted, dropping huge bombs on civilians murders children and innocent people. From my perspective, McCain would be safer because any war he planned would have to go through what might be a democratic super-majority. Obama will have no such encumberance.

    Obama fails

    ENDING CORPORATE CONTROL OF AMERICA .. and Obama fails. I could have switched back .. maybe .. if he had stood with the American people on the bailout .. but he didn't .. and he didn't because of the astronomical amount of money he was getting from Wall Street. He has a history of missing important votes or just voting "present" so he can stay away from having to take a stand.

    Obama fails

    THE INJUSTICE OF THE CRIMINAL SYSTEM .. and Obama fails. Although there is no question that he knows the injustice of the system, and although he once campaigned on this injustiuce, and although he used to take a stand against the dealth penalty .. now he supports it .. even though the REPUBLICAN governor of his own state stopped executions because even he was aware of the disportionate way JUST-US is carried out. Obama will do nothing on this issue and I fully expect him top appoint an AG who won't have the slightest clue or inclination to do anything either.

    Obama fails

    How does one trust someone who will say anything to get elected?

    How much more will democrats compromise to play follow the leader?

    As for the impact of 3rd parties .. as long as Americans continue to play the two-party quagmire we're in we will never regain control of our government. Somebody has to draw the line in the sand .. and there are a lot of somebody's doing just that.

    Sorry my brother, on Nov. 5th, I have to wake up and look in the mirror.
