Ok i'm going to throw this out there only because it really upset me last presidential election. First off, I am not a racist, never have and never will. I have plenty of black, asian, and mexican people that I know and respect in my life in some way shape or form.
I was disappointed last election because it became a RACE thing. Let's be honest, if Barack Obama was white he would not be where he is today. There's no doubt he used that to his advantage and if the roles were reversed, I'm sure a white person would do the same thing. That's not my problem. My problem is when you have people with strong beliefs one way and they choose race over morals and values. I know of people who were African Americans who were strong conservatives, but voted for Obama because they felt like it was their duty. I don't agree with this. I can honestly say if there was a Black republican running for president and a white democrat, I would vote republican all day long. (and this may happen this election, who knows) I like Herman Cain this election and he's black. There's plenty of white republicans running for the ticket but it's not about RACE people. That's what upsets me. I'm not saying all black people did this, but if you have values and morals one way, why change those just because of race? that does not make sense to me. It happened though, and look where our country is at. I wish there was a nation wide poll of people who voted for Obama and I want to know if given the chance again, who would vote for him a 2nd time. I would guess more than 1/2 would not.
these are my thoughts, I in NO way intended to point fingers or say racist comments. Please don't see it that way because I am not a racist and DO NOT like being identified as one of them.
