    I love legal hispanics. I have dated a few. But illegals shouldn't be here at all. Thats why its called illegal.

    The only racial bashing in this thread has been against Obama and his supporters as seen in multiple posts. If you don't see it, it means you most likely agree with it or it fits your view of them. I am not saying prejudice is wrong. But racism means no logical basis of the prejudice or just hate in any way.

    I am a blue dog democrat. That means pro-gun, pro-choice, anti-illegal immigrant, and for civil rights.

    I must get back to driving voters to the polls.Only one hour left. Lets not torch the thread with racism. United we stand, divided we fall.
    WarEagleAU, CyberDruid and Paulieg say thanks.

    To the contrary, everyone has a right NOT to be offended, it's actually the law, well it is here, cannot speak for the US.....an example of what I mean.............. guy walks up to two good looking females walking down the street, he says to them both "damn, thats some fine ass you 2 have there"...........female 1 laughs and is flattered, female 2 is offended, she calls over the policeman on the corner of the street who gets all 3 of them together, female 2 makes a formal complaint (it's actually a form of assault in this country), female 1 tells the Policeman that the guy was just having some fun, female 1 is sent on her way, the guy is charged and the Policeman takes a statement from female 2......why, because she was offended.

    If you dont care who you offend, you clearly dont care about other people's feelings, I find that kind of sad.

    It's the internet. You can't beat my ass so I can piss you off and have a laugh without fear of reprisal.

    As bad as that sounds that same anonymity is making people say how they really feel...and that's a real eye opener.

    If you came from a centrist, presbyterian, middle class, suburban place like I did and then see just how backwater and small-minded and mean-spirited a lot of people are it really makes one aware of how hard it is to pass civilization/culture along from generation to generation...there's some sort of de-evolutionary force at play too...what we all learned and knew to be right is not what kids 15-20 years younger think is right...

    Hence the rise of fascism and racism in the states.

    People are going to find out real quick that CHANGE isn't always GOOD. Be careful what you WISH for.

    I consider myself the "person" who can do the most for me :D. This time around I voted Republican. However, if Edwards had won the primary, Id be all over him.

    That said, sometimes opinions are the truth and have value beyond what you may think.

    Thank you for not responding in a insulting, negative fashion. Some folks would be amazed how much better people listen when they are not attacked. :eek::toast::)

    I'm pretty much an Anarchist/Luddite.

    I don't trust any of the politicians: they don't represent me...they opress me.

    Seriously I am surprised as hell Obama carried Ohio and Pennsylvania...

    Apparently when you starting messing with people's money they don't see Black or White...they just see Green :D

    That's taking the "politically correct police" phrase to a brand new level of absurdity.

    That's what the pundits on TV are saying... but it's not over until the votes are counted.
    I remember in, I think it was 1998 they said Clinton carried Georgia. A day later, the votes were counted, and he'd lost it by 10%...

    I'll not trust the liberal 'in the tank for Obama' media any farther than I can throw obama's house.


    Luddite... That's funny... step away from the keyboard, and put the crack pipe down, good sir... because, as a Luddite, anything more technological than a pencil is anathema to you...

    Im in the same thing with being shocked about projections for PA and OH. If thats the case, and he wins, this country really is going to go to pot (to the shitter).

    Then again, we could all be surprised at how well he does.
