In a time of global mistrust an hatred, we now find ourselves divided amongst eachother. If in anytime in recent history we needed to pull together and have our candidateds debate issues so we can choose whats best. Nows the time. This is not the republican race of 2000 so what worked then for the base will fail miserably now. Both parties need to keep a cool head and leave the angry middleschool arguing to a school playground.

TRB. DEIST as the founding fathers.

I recall watching a 9/11 truther video where they had infiltrated and disrupted a Clinton rally by yelling. But Obama was mentioned and [dem] people were going off about his Muslim stuff. There is that huge Clinton voting block of which he has tried so hard to
As a early20s college student, I can't believe the ignorance of those in my immediate peer group. I honestly believe the Obama support draws so much from subconscious or inner-feelings of racism. The statistics of African American exit polls undeniably points to the most ignorant and racist voting perhaps in American history. But then theres the general 20something middle-class (mostly) white people who, I believe, are the same target audience of Sprite's hip-hop oriented Ads. Black, or hip-hop, culture has got to be one of the most effective selling tools of recent years. Think of how many commercials for flashy new gadgets(eg cellphones), where the younger crowd is the main buyer, that are narrated by a cool, hip black voice.
Anyways, a ton of my friends are Obama people and I think they think deep-down his perceived "blackness" will help us around the world. I think McCain sucks also but man. AND he's more white than black.

Ignorance is something else.

I predict Obama is going to win. This way, if you protest anything he does, you can be labeled as a racist and any police action against you will be cheered. If you protest one of the president's decisions or policies, you will attract a mindless group like the one in the video turning your protest into a KKK rally, which will quickly get shut down and no message will be heard above the fanatic cries repeated by the media.

These people are absolutely absurd. How can they be serious? how can they so blindly fight for one candidate when they are so similar? How can they be perverted so strongly to be reduced down to racist or nonsensical yelling?

This is why I'm not even voting, I don't want to be a part of the corruption. Instead, I'll just be writing notices that I no longer give consent to be governed.

What I see on this thread is what I've seen on all these threads; the extremists on both sides, Right and Left, are out of their flipping gourds.

When the Left and the Right start arguing the worst in both sides comes out and there are no winners. Just the scum arguing over which side is the sleaziest. I think it will always end in a tie. Both sides lie. Both sides hate. Both sides are wrong. Both sides loose. Congratulations.

I know that Obama-Biden was an obvious play to 'terrorist' and now you have Palin running around pushing this 'terrorist' issue like it's going out of style.

It is very sad to see so many ignorant, and shallow-hate filed people. I know they only represent a small portion of people in America, but the number is still too large to go un-noticed.

I truly feel sorry for these people, but the blame should be put on the failed public school system and the biased Mainstream Media. I am by no means a Obama supporter, but this is blatantly racist, and intolerant.

Coudn't agree more

But also the people are at fault. Look I'm in the military and the military is really a melting pot of our entire population.

As a Sgt. I have to educate all these kids that come across, specially the white kids that come from areas that have little or zero diversity and the black kids that also come from this kind of environment with no diversity and let me tell you most of the times is a challenge, and to make it worst I'm Puertorican with a heavy Puertorican accent.

I have learn that no one is born a racist, the environment, the education and the way you are raised gives you those traits. When these kids come to me at first I have to create the environment where they are forced to work with each others so they can forget about those stereotypes and racist views that they have about each other, if that means make them hate ME so be it. But when that system is not in play is up to the individual person to recognize that you have those traits and educate yourself.

It takes sometime for these kids to overcome what the views that they bring when they get to their first duty station and although you still have some racial tension within the military I will venture to say that they are well in the minority if not there would be no chance of our military fighting as a cohesive unit.

But it is a challenge.

Keep fighting sheeple this is what the PTB want. Divide and conquer. The fact is there are ideologues on BOTH sides and this is a good thing for the establishment. The fact is nothing in our dying country will change as long as we are sit back and fight each other and not the 2 party crime family that has managed to turn our country from the greatest in the world in the 50s to really a second class nation right now. Frankly all Obama supporters need to asking questions of these tools like why he voted for the bailout and McCain the same. Why is our education in shambles and our people being dumbed up? Why is our tax code 60,000 pages long? Why is our infrastructure from the 50s not being updated? Why is immigration not fixed? I can go on and on and this is BOTH PARTIES that have watched our nation fall further and further down the ladder.

lovely...these people think they know the truth because they watch 15 second clips on the telly...this is pretty bad and it makes you wonder if its even possible to achieve a global ascension of consciousness anytime soon.

I wonder what really goes on in these people's minds?

this is proof that we have a long way to go and it is this fervent, closed-minded, racist idea that we are separate from each other.

I especially enjoyed how one person yelled that a vote for Obama was a vote for communism, especially after the bail out.

Ladies and Gentlemen of ATS:

I am officially crawling back into bed and hiding under the covers until this "election" is over.

I'm having a hard time being American right now.

I'm sorry, but every one of us has their breaking point. I've just hit mine.

Someone, please send me a U2U when this whole "hatefest" is over.

These are the angry white americans that cling to their guns and religon, as Obama put it. If you want to attack their education, I think you can fairly attack the public schools because I would gather that they are all prodigies of the public school system. Yes, most of them sound idiotic and racist.

I personally cannot fathom the idea of President Obama, but if it happens, it happens. I'm not going to have a coranary as a result. If that's what the people want, (socialism to the extreme), then that is what they'll get. So long America.

The only thing that was missing in that rally were the robes and the burning crosses! Thank you McCain for restoring racism and hatred in this country (and keeping up the legacy of "Bushy").

Here is my new bumper sticker:

= Fear/Hatred

They called Lincoln an ape so nothing new here.

The elitists must be laughing their lazy ss's off at all this because guess what;they have both of these candidates in their pockets so it doesn't matter who you pick. Vote Ron Paul,if at all.

Very true dbates. I had forgotten that until you mentioned it, but you are right, comparing Bush to a chimp was all the rage.

Its a shame to see our elections turned into this sort of mess on both sides.

seabis, I noticed that comment from 'dbates' as well.....I found IT very disturbing, as it came from a Mod.

To be honest, I don't know WHERE I've seen Pres. Bush, the 43rd, compared to a monkey. His intellect has been questioned, and joked about, of course. But so was Carter's and Clinton's....I'm glad you, seabisquit, was able to bring up a gem from another century, an item that can be lost in these vibrant discussions, lest we remember to REMEMBER history...or else we are doomed to repeat it.

At a risk of going slightly off-topic, I considered (and abaandoned) this idea for a thread, because A) we're three weeks away and B) it just seemed too petty, and not worthy of its own thread.....but I included it here, because it amused me.

The Republicans, so fond of 'bashing' European nations that would not go along with the "Nation Building" of the Iraqi Invasion, in 2003....seem blissfully unaware that McCain is flying around on a chartered jet....that was built in France!!! With the slogan 'Country First' prominently displayed.

Yes, I know, I know, McCain is seen exiting and entering two different airplane types....sometimes it's a Boeing, but sometimes it's an Airbus.

(How can I tell??? Because I worked for an airline, and I know the differences, just from seeing the doors)

So far, I've only seen Obama on Boeings.....but since I can't watch 24/7 News...I DO have to eat and sleep...perhaps I missed an instance, and thusly my point would be moot.

(Hint: If you see the INTERIOR of the door, because it swings open 180 degrees, and it's a narrow-body, then it's a Boeing. If the door merely translates forward, when opened.....and you still see the outside of the door, and the exterior paint and the distinctive 3-inch wide paint around the perimeter of the door to denote its location in the event that Airport Fire and Rescue need to ascertain its position.....then it is likely a narrow-body Airbus...(Built, as I've noted, in Toulouse, France!) Oh! And sometimes, the exterior door handle on the Airbus is painted bright red. Boeings are silver.

This actually makes me feel rather sad for John McCain, among other things.

Like I've said before I think he's basically a decent person and an honorable public servant - and I'll bet seeing things like this probably turns his stomach

I am quite sure this is not the kind of campaign he wanted to run, and these louts are not the kind of people he wants supporting him.

Unfortunately "Obamaphobia" has brought out the very worst in the American right, as we can all see in this video.

Well, I guess it is possible that you hadnt seem anything comparing Bush to a chimp, but you must have been pretty under the radar to escape it.

Just google Bush Chimp and you will see plenty.

oh come on get real man. If you think that resembles anything CLOSE to a klan meeting then you really don't know how BAD racism was even just 20 years ago. I don't condone that, but to relate it to a Ku Klux Klan meeting is just ridiculous.

I agree. I've known Klan and neonazis in my day and they are wayyyy worse than these poor idiots. If you pushed these people to explain why they feel what they think they feel , they'd barely be able to start a lucid argument.....or string together the words to argue it.

In a sick way I'm sort of amused. So easily manipulated.......
