I had a really nice talk with a white lady who has 2 kids, married upper middle class who lives in NC. We spoke for hours about how one should view the voting process. She is clearly a republican and admitted to it. She said she was a republican because her family was too. She went on to explain how racist her parents' parents are. She said she has strive to teach her kids other wise. She does not want to see her kids grow up an racist, but clearly and freely explained to me her opinion on the topic, which she her self was tainted by the racist bug, but not as much.
She said she would vote for Palin, not McCain in those words. She said she feels a connection with Palin even though Palin scares her. She said Palin was too much like her and doesn't know if she wants that in the white house. In the end I think she will still be voting for Palin, but I expressed the urgency for her to vote based on experience with gov. or senate. I urged her to be a part of her community politics in NC so as she gets a better understanding of whats happening. She was smart, but not politically. Her beliefs were fed to her and not of her own accord. That is a vote we don't need, such as any based on anything else outside of each candidates voting record, history in office whether local, state or gov. I express this because it is clear people are voting for the wrong reasons.
It is unconstitutional to vote based on gender, race or age so if you are doing so, ask your self if you are an American. Stop and think about that, because its a concerning matter of what your vote does for the American people. If anybody claims to be a real American then stop posting race base videos, comments and write ups, and stick to the core issues, thats the only way its going to change.
Do your home work and vote wisely GOD BLESS
