I'm so saddened by the media guided focus of this election.
Why oh why is race the glory of this election when the person's voting record should be ? Obama's voting record is very similar to John McCains. Check it and see for yourself ! NAFTA, & CAFTA took your jobs away, refusal to hold criminals responsible, spying on innocent Americans, the Patriot Act which will put anyone who is labeled an " enemy combatant " by the president at his whim, into jail without a lawyer! He supports the " clean coal & safe nuclear" industry ! There is no such thing !
I voted for a black woman Cynthia McKinney , not because she was black & a woman , but because she took no money from corporations who have driven this country in to the depths of torture, poverty and shame.
I voted Green because that party respects the Constitution NOT the corporation like the other 2. The 2 major parties are now one & they bow to the same corporations that wouldn't allow any others to participate in the debates! How is this American ? How is this a good thing ?
Check their voting records.
For those of you who drank the guilt cool aid and thought that you'd be taking votes away from Obama by voting for a third candidate, you've forgotten high school civics. Here in America we do not elect our presidents. It's a ceremony & a poll taking show of hands. The electoral college elects the US president. How is that ok with you ?
If you want someone of color to win , at least choose the person who will defend your civil rights, eliminate the electoral college, hold government officials responsible & ( here's the biggy) support the Constitution without corporate influence ! She was out there but the corporate media had already chosen their next leader.
