After Barack Obama has captured the Democraic nomination for president, you can expect from the liberal Democrats that any questioning, any opposing viewpoint, any criticism of this man and the policies and agendas that he and the leftist liberals will put forth will be met with one outcry: racism. ...
I disagree with Mr. Obama's warped vision for the future of this country and oppose everything he and the liberal leftists in this country stand for. Do I care whether or not he is black, white, green, yellow or blue? No. But undoubtedly, those with my viewpoint will be labeled as racists because we are totally opposed to this man becoming the 44th president of the Untied States. Many of the people that throw this word "racism" around don't even understand the meaning of the word. Their problem, not mine.
I'll tell you who I would vote for: Herman Cain, Michael Steele, Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams, Ken Blackwell, Larry Elder -- I could name many others. All black men. The difference? You figure it out. So don't tell me that my vote against Obama will be because I am a racist. I'm not hearing it, nor am I going to let the morons who will yell this allegation from the rooftops define or set the premise for this or any other issue. Just because they say it is, doesn't mean it is.
So I'll set my thermostat where I please, and I will eat what I want and as much as I please. I don't drive an SUV, but if I did, I would do so as I please, and not care what the world thinks about me or my country. I'll cling to my Bible as I please, and you can bet that I'll cling to my firearms as well. This is the United States of America, not Venezuela, not Iran and not socialist Europe.
