For all those claiming the high and mighty road, I ask you this.
Who is not racist?
Red, Yellow, Black and White, it doesn't matter. You may feel, and publicly pronounce your anti-racial viewpoints, but you are still a human being.
If you have ever thought your not racist, your not alone but you still will pass judgement based on race, before you meet the individual. There may
well be those around the world that truly have an outlook of "mankind" alone. But, the percentage would be so small, it would be unmeasurable.
Race, Religion, Creed we all pass judgement from our own paradigm.
We think that a President should be god like. That's why we are in the position we are in today.
A candidate need only speak a certain way, look a certain way and pat you on the head while telling stories from days gone by or by placing you in a
position of fear for the opposition.
We need to break the hold of the Hollywood style, made up candidate and instead vote for the man or woman who truly understands that this is our
country and we place them in their position to represent us and us alone. Not the lobby, not the special interest and not any religious viewpoints.
We vote for the person that speaks and looks presidential, with only a little regard for his/her politics. We have chosen a side, primarily democrat
or republican then we are forced to pick from those 2 for the most part.
The parties need to be over. We need to vote the individual, without the monetary corruption that exists in our current elections. By the time almost
anyone gets in office, the deck is already stacked with IOU's.
Its not the people, its the process. We need a balanced form of elections to get the right person in office that will represent those that voted them
But again, we will vote on fear and flag and whoever tells us the nice things we want to hear, but the IOU's must be repaid.
Get rid of the process and vote for the person.
That's my 2 cents worth.
