not voting

yup...I have decided that I am not voting in the primary. My vote can't go to who I want. Both choices are shitty, so it doesn't matter. My standing in a two hour line. won't help anything.

I will wait until the final election day.

I am very apprehensive about somtthing very bad happening in Texas next week. I am praying that I am worrying needlessly, that the country has moved on and become a place where an African American can run for President without fear. At the same time, I know that it haa not.

Do you mean you think he might get hurt?

I would hope not. He seems like a decent guy. Aside from his healthcare and tax veiws.

He will reverse all tax cuts Bush enacted while President.

But I don't know yet if his policies scare me as a Republican. I don't know why, but I don't fear him as a President. It would be a shame if something bad were to happen. He is an inspirational leader to his race. Even him getting this far in the truly is wonderful.

I think it's time for a black President. Maybe he won't turn a cheek to the cival rights movements that need so much attention.

But we don't need Hillary...she cries too much. (seriously) I don't want a president that cries THAT doesn't show strength.

I agree with what you say about Hillary. I am a registered Republican too but I vote my concience.

The KKK and Aryan Brotherhood still exist. I regret to say they are especially strong in my home state of Texas, where it was found not that long ago that the KKK had members in the Houston Police Department. I am not afraid Senator Obama will get hurt;I am afraid he will get his head blown off. I am praying that this will not happen.
