Something tells me there are millions who share that general feeling. Door # 1 got the old bait and switch to door # 2.
It's a heck of a way to run a country, to be sure.
I can tell you how I got duped from a personal perspective....
Here comes a new guy--some fresh blood--not the same old untrustworthy talking head (and a smile.)
He seems to have purpose and integrity. He is highly educated in CONSTITUTIONAL law, and it
seems to me that every other politician (except Ron Paul) isn't even AWARE of that document.
So there is hope that he will embrace that document and the Bill of Rights
and perhaps turn back the clock on what I perceived to be an impending police state.
I mean the "First Guy" is/was a constitutional lawyer---what's not to like about that?
He is black. And that alone shines a ray of light on the plight of minorities in America. It is a GOOD
thing. I imagine millions of disadvantaged kids all across America realizing for the first time
that they aren't stuck under an unbreakable glass ceiling--that success is possible if you try
hard enough. There is the added bonus that he alone (by virtue of his race) can begin to mend
the growing world hatred of America and her foreign policies simply because they will see him as
as one of them...so my vote was not only naive, I admit, it was racist. (just not racist in the sense
that is usually presented.
He is campaigning against everything I'm against....war...indefinite detention...surveillance
of Americans...etc etc...
...boy I hate being naive....I'd rather have my anal hairs tweezed
