Fellow Bloggers, as the Presidential Election draws nearer the prevalence of voters expressing their intent to essentially vote based on the candidates ethnic persuasion is the beginning of the end for this country. Please realize this goes for all ethnicities. The last four years has set our country back who knows how much when it comes to racial harmony. One side claims the republicans want to keep America “white” while other views consist of the need for America to be “blacker” This is to the extent that candidates change their dialect and prose to suit whichever demographic they are addressing. The last four years have driven a wedge down the middle of our country and made the issue race as opposed to the issues. My next statement is going to be a little harsh but it of course is only my opinion. So… If you are casting your vote based solely on race, I wish there was some way to revoke your privilege to vote as that mind set has zero to do with the democratic process. If that is your methodology, you are the problem period. The right to be part of the democratic process is viewed as a given with little regard to being a “responsible” voter and making a decision based on facts, performance, the current status quo. How quickly we forget third world elections where a voter ID was the purple thumb. These people vote even with the fear of DEATH for casting a vote contrary to the ruling party. They believed so much in their convictions that they braved the repercussions to cast their vote. With that said, we are fortunate to not to have to endure that possibility. However I do ask you to do this, vote with your conviction that you believe this is the best course for Americans. I am not going to allude to who I think you think that should be. I do challenge you to vote as an informed voter making your decision based on issues not race. As I have blogged previously, we have a duty to think past ourselves and vote for the country to succeed. I hope this dialogue sticks with you when you go into the voting booth. I hope that you are able to look yourself in the mirror and know that you voted for a complete person, not a skin color. Lastly, I hope that you will be able to face your children and explain to them the importance of the privilege to vote, to be an example of a citizen that votes based on conviction and integrity. For those that cannot get past the race factor, enjoy your time in the stone ages and the 50’s and 60’s because that is where you are going to be forever stuck.

I couldnt agree more... Lets just remember a few things though....

President Obama and Gov Romney are not the only candidates. I would rather cast my vote for someone who i beleive in, even though they might not have a chance to win. I encourage everyone to study the platforms of the other candidates. They just might be what you are wanting but your just uninformed. (Link below)

Unfortunately their are gonna be votes for President Obama cuz hes the black candidate and votes for Gov. Romney cuz hes not the black candidate. It shows ignorance, but its true.

Lets just remember... ONE RACE OF PEOPLE CANNOT ELECT A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

HMJC, you are correct in your statement that if someone votes solely on the ethnic line it is the beginning of the end for this country.

Same can be said of someone voting strictly on party affiliation of candidate.

The beginning of the end for this still great nation was when the Republican party in partnership with the Democratic party (in their greatest partisan act ever) were able to lock the other parties out of the primary process.

Republicans and Democrats both allow candidates to qualify for primary elections by simply paying a qualifying fee (most of which goes to the party) while Libertarians or any others must go through a petition process which is made as difficult as possible.

hollabackk, a vote for a third party candidate is a vote for Obama.

I don't like that but is is reality.

Four more years of the current administration and it just might be impossible to ever get back on the right path.

This is the most important election in the past century in my opinion.

HMJC this is the best blog that I've seen on this site.

I don't know if I would say that but Thanks so much.

Timeontarget,

sorry you feel that way.

timeontarget commented on Friday, Oct 19, 2012 at 05:46 AM

hollabackk, I wish I didn't feel the way I do.

I actually like Obama's apparent position regarding the use of our military.

Our misadventures with our military by both Republican and Democratic leadership has brought us into the war of terror on our soil.

I've not had any meaningful employment in the past three years.

I need a new tire for my tractor and I can't afford the five hundred dollars to purchase it.

Two tires for my truck recently set me back $350.00.

Tire cost has steadly increased for about fifteen years but they have skyrocketed in the past four years.

Gasoline has doubled since Obama took office.

As Romney says small business is the backbone of America.

As such it needs to be protected and nurtured by government but the reverse is actually what is happening.

That is what drives me the most nuts!! All of the sudden the "good idea fairy" has all of these great ideas to make up for the previous four. Didn't he also have a bunch of good ideas for the first four. It time for this cat to go back to originizing picnics and blood drives....
