Blacks should vote for John McCain

  • Follow Letters

During the recent presidential primaries and this period leading to the national election, there have been a plethora of black politicians, talk radio hosts and pundits who have espoused the view of our race as not a monolithic one, but the amalgamation of many religious and social mores. Yet, when it comes to our voting patterns, it is clearly shown that we are nearly of one accord; which is graphically noted in the polls that indicate over 95 percent support for Barack Obama among the African-American community.

How can this be? How can our leaders not see the Democratic Party's relationship with the black community closely resembles the pimp/whore syndrome? They take our tax dollars, and in return, we get poor schools, spotty health care, neighborhoods in decay, dope and crime-ravaged streets. Or maybe it's the battered woman syndrome?

Many of our voices are speaking out against the genocide in Sudan while not speaking out about the 16 million abortions since 1973 carried out in our community; yet our voices are silent when we hear our tax dollars are sent to Planned Parenthood to murder our babies, God's precious children.

Abortion plus the homosexual lifestyle are not a government-driven plan, but instead a self-inflicted wound that is destroying the family lifestyle. The wages of sin is death and we as a community are experiencing it now.

God loves the sinner but hates the sin. It is now time for black ministers to step up to the plate and take a swing at Satan, batting him out of our churches.

The upcoming election is not about Obama vs. John McCain. This upcoming election is about good overcoming evil and choosing life over death.

I am a registered Independent who has no other God-directed choice but to vote for McCain who promised to nominate conservative justices in order to up the odds of defeating the murderous Roe v. Wade decision.

The old folks used to have a saying, "Don't cut off your nose to spite your face." Black community, I am asking you to pray to God for the knowledge and wisdom in order to cast a vote for Him and His laws. Don't let your blanket dislike of the Republican Party influence your vote. Cast it for the man who more closely backs God's laws.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.

Earl Davis

Bizarro, you are showing your

Bizarro, you are showing your weakness by narcissistically equating biological IQ with intelligence. You must know that IQ score alone measures your ability to process information. However, it is a very poor indicator for interpreting the information in the context of one's environment, and making good choices. Oh, I like porn just as much as the other guy, but I do not believe the internet is used 70% for porn. The internet is a world-wide operating system that is used every second in businesses across this world, as well as by scientific research, and other academic endeavors. Sorry if you took y little joke personally. However, you may want to check to see if there is any hair growing in the palm.

shivas I don't know why you

shivas I don't know why you think conservative talk radio is going in the tank. Guys like Bortz and Rush have more listeners than ever and Rush signed a HUGE new contract this year. Doesn't seem like the indications of a dying industry. And last time I checked pro-wrestling still comes on two times a week and makes a killing on pay-per-view.

Who has developed a true IQ test? They are all skewed to what you have been exposed to.

The only thing the test proves is how well you can perform in comparison to others who have been exposed to the same thing.

Wrong shivas I.Q. tests are

Wrong shivas I.Q. tests are extremely good indicators of productivity and success. And I.Q. is a good indicator of the ability to succeed in college and manage a business. But I was wrong about my porn statistics. I thought I'd read an article relating such but I must be mistaken about usage and not percent dedicated of the internet. A study of sex and relationship seeking on the Internet, based on a survey of 15,246 respondents in the United States 75% of men and 41% of women had intentionally viewed or downloaded porn. In the U.S. internet porn sites are down, but the World Wide Web is another matter. My error, but still studies have indicated a high percentage of misinformation and false information dominates the internet. To be honest, I personally don't put much merit in intelligence or creativity measures, but there is a literature that supports their usefulness.

I agree LaTwon the right wing

I agree LaTwon the right wing has been dead as well as any clout from the minority fundamentalist religious right. What is sad is all christianity is being beat up for the political views of a minority of evangelical fundamentalist christians.

As a 16 year old I was unfortunately exposed to real life porn. Never wanted any more exposure. Seeing a bunch of nude old pot bellied men does wonders. LOL. Seeing from a distance, by the way.

Why are the republicans so

Why are the republicans so pro-life and have so much family values, that when they are in office the first programs they cut are pre-k, headstart,health care for children,medicare, school lunches and education,then they increase military spending?Aren't christians supposed to feed the hungry. Their are going to be many so called christians in hell. Go Obama/Biden.

The comment made "McCain is RICH". Look at Obama is he the average American?? He lives in a mansion, His wife wears dresses that cost from $400.00 to $5,000.00. Everyone has complained about Palin's wardrobe, she wore clothes like most of us do. I have never wore a dress that cost $400, and probably wouldn't if I was rich. SusieQ

shivas i have a wonderful

shivas i have a wonderful life. i am proud that a black man may get elected, i just wish he was not a socialist. my belief is he will be a puppet anyway just like the chimp was/is and nothing will really change except more massive buildup of govt.
iraq? pakistan? iran? korea, germany, cuba, japan, and all of the rest of the empire. if it all falls down will they blame the black man? if he gets shot will we have a race war? gonna be alot to watch.

We must remember that it must

We must remember that it must be hate, racist, etc., if anyone is against NObama. It could never be his policies and his 'friends' that he chose to associate with. When have we ever had the black panthers intimidating voters, in previous elections? NObama wants a security force so guess his black panthers and ACORN members with be part of his security force? AND we can't ignore the freedoms he wants to eliminate and the wealth he wants to redistribute.

InChristlove,
You hit the nail right on the head. God is in control but we may not like the way it turns out. There was blood and destruction in the bible and once the people turned their backs on God, there was consequences. If Obama is the anti-christ, then he will be elected just as scriptures foretells us. We all need to pray!

What crazy person would even

What crazy person would even THINK of voting Republican? What crazy person allows STUPID POINTLESS issues about abortion, religion, and patriotism guide their decision in selecting a president, when WE HAVE REAL ISSUES WE'RE TRYING TO DEAL WITH, with the economy? Oh yeah...i can see that it's SEVERAL dummies on here that do that and we wonder why the country continues to LAUGH at Georgia and Augusta in general. I'm black and ANTI-CONSERVATIVE in every way, as I feel Liberal Democrats are FAR more Christian in practice and belief anyway. As for the writer of this blog, whoever this retard is, he better hope he never reveals his face, as this is THE most ignorant excuse for a blog I've ever wasted my time reading, and it's probably for his own attention. I can't see ONE reason to support McCRAP,....he knows NOTHING about the issues that affect Americans (realistically), and WHO THE HECK CARES about freakin patriotism and crap, when WE HAVE A FAILING ECONOMY AND JOB LOSS AT ITS WORSE!! Obama is a guy who actually KNOWS what he's talking about and will actually fix this MESS that we're in! HA HA! Many of you are so dumb it's scary....NOBODY WANTS MCCAIN AND HIS CRAPP!!

To McCain supporters and/or

To McCain supporters and/or Obama haters, HOW COULD YOU EVEN HAVE THE HEART TO EVEN THINK OF GOING AGAINST A GUY WHO MILLIONS OF BLACKS AND YOUTH ARE LOOKING UP TO AND PLACING SO MUCH LEGIT HOPE IN? Geez, let the man...a well-deserving, hard-fighting, super-qualified BLACK MAN... be President and lead this country. I'm sick and tired of seeing the same white republican trash tear down this place, and sick of the close-minded conservatives, who possess next to NO Christian values at heart. Forget partisan support...WHAT SANE AND HEALTHY MINDED INDIVIDUAL WOULD WANT AN OLD, CROOKED, INCOMPETANT I-LOVE-AMERICA MCCAIN AS PRESIDENT IN THE FIRST PLACE? IGNORANT!!!!!

McCain supports an on-going

McCain supports an on-going war (violence on BOTH ends), has NO care or concern for blacks at all (ignorance and hatred), and is a well-documented money-hoarder who's campaign was overwhelmingly financed with public money (greed), as well as too many other vices to name.....I think McCain (next to W.) is the LAST person I would connect with "backing God's law". Obama = UNITY, OPEN-MINDED, OPEN-HEARTED, PEACE, INTELLIGENCE, LOVE/CONCERN FOR ALL CITIZENS, ETC....now ask yourself who's more of a "backer of God's law"
