I have been watching over the past few weeks the support, and money Barack Obama gets from Oprah Winfrey. I think this is apalling and shows how racist Oprah really is. When was the last time she supported another ethnicity as much as she supports Barack? Well that is beside the point I am making anyways. What I am getting at is, Oprah has so much power and influence on every Suzy Homemaker that if she says Barack is going to be the greatest thing since sliced bread, then alot of women are going to believe that and in my opinion a lot of black people will be voting for Barack just because he is black. This doesnt make it out to be a good thing at this point. There is something about Barack that cant be trusted. I dont know what it is but he just dodges questions in debates and he doesnt seem like he has what it takes to be a leader ..... That is my two cents please feel free to reply.


RON PAUL ... HOPE FOR AMERICA

i dont think its racist. its just her trying to get a black person to be the president cuz she figures he'll actually help black people further their status. thats just what i think. its more of a he can help us(being black people and discrimmination. ect.) were no one has kinda thing.

im black and i think most blacks are getting caught up in the fact that he's black and he could be the first black president. they dont do any real research into him. i think thats the problem with my family. im voting for ron paul and i cant wait to hear all the criticism i get from them.


this website has loads of info on the candidates and practically anyone who holds some inportant Govt. position.
www.politics1.com...

there is a link somewere on the website were you can see everything a candidate hs voted for and how they voted since they've been in office but i cant remember were it is. ill add it if i can find it.

Before you paint Barack Obama with a broad or race-based brush...

I agree that if Ron Paul does what he says he will, he could be a good candidate. I still haven't seen him come out with plans of any detail, just huge (in a positive way) structural changes he would make to government. I am skeptical he could pull it off, and don't understand enough of the details of his plan to know what we'd end up with when/if he finished. That said, it could be very positive.

Regarding Barack Obama, my mom knew Barack Obama's mom, used to babysit him, and has very positive things to say about both of them. I first heard about Barack Obama when I heard a senator giving an inspiring speech on the radio. I didn't know he was black or even who he was, and I didn't know my mom knew let alone babysat him. The values he spoke of rung true in my opinion, and I heard him as sincere. He also seems quite intelligent. If there is a conspiracy, I'm personally about 99.9% sure he would not be part of it. I believe he's the real deal, and truly independent of his race, someone who can make a difference.

Perhaps that's why when Hillary is slightly ahead, the headlines read "Clinton Maintains Lead". When they are tied, the headlines read "Clinton his a Rough Patch", and when he is in the lead, do most headlines lead with Obama? No. Instead, the latest headlines read "Second is the New First Place", or "Clinton Talks About Attacks, Polls, Hopes". She's the insider, he's the wild card.

Right on his site, he's laid out detailed plans covering much of what I see people discussing on ATS. I haven't seen that from anyone else. Click on each issue link for a detailed plan: [url]http://origin.barackobama.com/issues/[url]

Well, I'm sorry to tell you, but you're 99.9% wrong, + .1%.

He's in the Council on Foreign Relations.

There's your conspiracy and he's a part of it.

To the original post, do you people actually think it matters? Do you think Oprah has to sit down and say "hmm - is this guy good for America?"..

NO! She doesn't.

Trust me, when the s*** hits the fan, and a crackdown on our freedoms happens, she'll be taken care of and spared no matter WHO is the president. She's a multi-billionaire.

Her "endorsement" is a PR move.

She won't get caught up in the police state, so what makes you think she'd actually consider that when voting?

Ignore celebrity endorsements. Do your own research. Study the issues, not the man's (or woman's) skin color, religion, or what ever else.

And most importantly - don't vote for CFR candidates. With that, I'll gladly accept your thank yous for helping you narrow it down to Ron Paul.

No thanks needed, I do think for myself. I also respect your opinion.

That's good. But if you're giving the man a vote because your mom babysat him while completely ignoring that he's a part of the CFR, then clearly your thinking isn't in the right place.

That's all I'm saying.

Put aside the personal aspect of your opinion of him, and look in to what the CFR has been involved with.

Hi Novus Order Mundi. All I'm saying is check out what he has to say, which was the bulk of my post and my first reasons for looking into him. Aside from your concern that he serves on a committee, do you disagree with his positions or votes on things or just feel that the experience disqualifies him? He did vote against the Iraq war.

There are things I agree with and things I disagree with of the things he says. Obviously I have no way of telling if he means what he says. But considering he's a part of the CFR, I tend to lean towards him sugar coating his issues to get elected, then screw the country over like every president does.

I like Obama, he comes across as a genuine guy.
But if they can pull strings and get George elected, you get bet sure as sugar that the American Upper-class will never allow a black man to be in the whitehouse.

smart moneys on clinton.

She definately gets all the red ticks in the right boxes...

primarily because of her stance on Iran.

Hillary will get elected if there's an election, but it really doesn't have much to do with Iran. They're thinking much bigger than Iran.

Yes, Iran will be involved. But it's more global than that.

I am glad to see everyone taking interest in my post. NOM I am glad to see your interest here as well. To the post that said dont paint a picture with a race brush or whatever it was, that is not what I am doing. I have watched every interview I can with every presidential candidate. These guys arent trying to make changes now because they cant. They are like that new car dealer who makes you an offer but cant go through with it until he talks to his manager. I can see many different things happening with this election. I am a firm Ron Paul supporter because he has proven himself as a congressman by not voting for bills that make no sense. He is often the 1 vote that doesnt follow the herd. I can see that a lot of people see barack as a "genuine" guy, but isnt that how everyone wants to be seen when they are jocking for your vote? Also, the antichrist is supposed to gain the trust of everyone as well. Oh but let's not open up a thread on Barack being the antichrist, I am sure there is already one.


Ron Paul...Hope for America

Don't want to get into a tit for tat but I think it is really the Elite Americans that would rather not have a person of any color other than white in office

I'm white and probably just your average American upper middle class kind of guy maybe even on the bottom end of upper class who knows who cares..

anyway I have no problem with any race or sex whether they be black purple white red pink or lime green for that matter as long as they can get the job done...

Respectfully,
GEO

Prejudice is just fear and ignorance controlling your thoughts.

thats funny. who's oprah. lets just hope ur joking.


i dont dought that barack is an intellegent man. in fact he may be smart as hell but he still hasnt proved that he's the man for the job. a few votes here and there isnt good enough to sway me. his whole standpoint should be on one thing, not i dont like the war in iraq but i support everything else bush does(example). he's not doing it because he believes it, he's doing it because he wants votes.

i think ill stick wit ron paul on this one.

If black America casts their vote for Barack just because he's black and they assume he's "one of them", they're in for a big surprise. Barack has about as much connection to the average black man in the US as Larry the Cable Guy.
