At least Hillary is not Protecting the Pedophiles. Russ Fiengold is the only choice for Freedom. Not once did he vote for the Patriot Act. Not even after being threatened with Antrax. He has Integrity. There are no voices of freedom in the republican leadership. Only lies and deception. They corrupt everything they touch. They are the party of oppression and destruction. Lies and incompetence. Go Russ!!! Go Claire!!!!

I think the best we can hope for is gridlock. Please try as hard as you can to completely balance the legislature between left and right so that NOTHING gets done.

After all, no man's liberty or property is safe while the legislature is in session.

Eng- I don't agree with you. I think that there are a lot of straight ticket voters of all races and both parties. But that doesn't make everyone who votes like their parents/like their friends do a racist. Uninformed maybe, but thats a problem with both sides.

Reality is that as someone who depends on a small business for my livelyhood the GOP does a better job of helping me succeed. Do I like everything they do? No. Unfortunately, this country pretty much only allows you 2 choices and I don't 100% agree with either (most people probably don't).

As for the business, both parties treat all businesses the same, large or small, weither it be tort reform, taxes, money for investment in the company etc. historicaly my bottom line has done better with the GOP and so has that of the employees. Do I like that companies like Walmart have to get big breaks when I get them? No, but the Dems don't treat me any different than Walmart either.

So while I'm white and likely voting GOP this fall, although still not decided because I don't like either candidate, that doesn't make me a racist. I'd be happy to vote for the Dems if they showed that they cared about me. IMO, both parties have drawn their lines and aren't interested in doing anything, because if they did their voting bases might shift.

I HEAR YA FLASHDADDY. CERTAINLY THERE ARE A FEW LIKE US WHO ARE OPEN MINDED AND VOTE THE ISSUES.

I TOO AM BENEFITED BY THE PRO-BUSINESS POLICIES OF DEMOCRATS, AND I STAND TO MAKE MORE MONEY THAN MOST FROM TAX CUTS, BUT I ALSO BELIEVE IN SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AS I SEE THIS COUNTRY AS ONE BIG FAMILY NOT ONE BIG BUSINESS (I.E., WE CARE FOR OUR LESSER-ACHIEVERS OR LESS FORTUNATE; WE DON'T FIRE THEM AND LEAVE THEM OUT IN THE COLD)

I STRUGGLE WITH THE IDEALOGICAL DEBATE LIKE YOU. AND I DETEST THE ABILITY OF ANYONE TO VOTE STRAIGHT PARTY DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN.

BUT MY MAIN PROBLEM IS THAT I PERCEIVE WHITE AMERICA'S (AND WHEN I SAY THAT I DON'T MEAN ALL "WHITE" MEN AND WOMEN, I JUST MEAN THE "WE SHARE THE SAME VALUES -MACACA SECTOR) LOCK-STEP BLIND UNWAVERING SUPPORT FOR THE LABEL "G.O.P." TO BE BASED IN PART ON RACE.

I PERCEIVE BLACK AMERICA'S LOCK-STEP BLIND UNWAVERING SUPPORT FOR ANYTHING DEMOCRAT TO BE BASED ON THEIR PERCEPTION THAT THE GOP DOESN'T WANT THEM. NOT IN THEIR PARTY. NOT IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS. NOT IN THEIR ESTABLISHMENTS.

THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE. FOR EXAMPLE, THE LATER CAN BE INSTANTLY CHANGED.

MAYBE I AM DEAD WRONG. AND I APOLOGIZE TO EVERY SINGLE WHITE PERSON WITHIN EYESIGHT OF ANY OF THESE POSTS IF I AM. BUT THAT IS WHAT I SEE.

ARISTOTLE (METAPHYSICS BOOK ALPHA) BASICALLY PROVIDES THAT NO MAN HAS DOMINION OVER THE TRUTH, BUT THAT WE ALL COOPERATIVELY DEFINE IT.

IF A ONE-ISSUE VOTER WERE TO TELL ME, ENGAWYER, YOU KNOW I JUST BELIEVE THAT ABORTION IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVILS. I SIMPLY CANNOT SUPPORT IT EVEN IF THE MAJORITY SAYS IT IS NOT. THEREFORE, EVEN THOUGH I MAY DISAGREE WITH THEIR POLICIES, I VOTE REPUBLICAN, BECAUSE THEY GIVE ME THE BEST CHANCE OF OUT-LAWING THESE MURDERS. AND THAT IS BY FAR THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE FOR ME

--THEN I WOULD TOTALLY UNDERSTAND, AND ADVISE THEM TO VOTE GOP.

SO I DON'T MEAN TO CASTAGATE ALL REPUBLICANS.

...BUT NO ONE HAS EVER SAID THAT TO ME.

MY COMMENTS ARE SIMPLY DIRECTED AT DRAWING ATTENTION TO ONE IMPROPER ASPECT OF THE GOP, NOT TO URGE ITS DESTRUCTION.

BY MY COMMUNICATING THIS UGLY RACIST PERCEPTION, THEY NOW HAVE A CHANCE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. TRUST ME, I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO FEELS THIS WAY. THAT HAS TO COUNT FOR SOMETHING.

Last weekend I had a person from the McCaskill camgaign come to my door. I asked her some questions about the issues like Medicaid, she had zero clue what I was talking about, she was just out handing out pamphlets.

Anyway, I said that there is no way that I could vote for McCaskill becuase of all the lies and half-truths that are in her commercials.

Then at the end, the lady asked her if she could mark me down as undecided for her poll then I asked if she had been listening to me at all.

The racism argument is old and wrong today. The only people who are 'oppressed' by racism today are the ones who find it as an excuse to failure.

Why is it that 90% of African Americans vote democrat, that seems pretty racist by the arguments on this thread.

'The Blacks'??

Panhandling Ban Protested Again, One Year Later, in Atlanta

By Matthew Cardinale, News Editor, Atlanta Progressive News (August 17, 2006)

(APN) ATLANTA – “We pray for those in this building who would be enemies of the poor,” Jim Beaty, 70, activist, exclaimed Tuesday morning at a City Hall protest, on the one year anniversary of the panhandling ordinance in Atlanta.

Homeless men and woman and human rights advocates rallied on the steps of City Hall and then proceeded to deliver letters to the Mayor and City Council Members.

It's better than the word most right wing bigots use. Sorry if I offended anyone that's not white.

BeProudAmerica

It's better than the word most right wing bigots use.

---> And what word would that be, I am not sure what you are referring to?

BeProudAmerica

The Republican Party is full of hate and racism.

---> Seems like most hate speak is coming from the left.

---> I want to explain to me where they see racism in America today.

BeProudAmerica,

You are not as stupid as you are pretending concerning racism against Blacks in this country and especially Missouri.

It's a demonic spiritual problem that have existed in America since the 1700's that will exist always until Christ returns.

Are you really blind to this truth?
