maybe you blacks should listen up and stop drinking the obama hussein koolaid
i wouldn't say blacks are in such good shape
Maybe you should listen up and stop drinking Rush Limbaugh kool-aid. Most of you are not in particularly good shape, and whites IN GENERAL have a LOWER social consciousness than we do.
You may vote against your own interests, but we're not obliged to follow suit.
A man who has OPPOSED Civil Rights for which our parents fought, sacrifice and sometimes died during the 1950s & 60s, has to be incredibly stupid to think we'd rally to him.

My, my, my. If one is shackled to the government, he/she willl assuredly vote for the left...the plantation owners. It is so sad that they can't see how they are being molded, manipulated and taught not to think or themselves, but to accept the mantra of the left as truth. There are those who look at the politican and his/her platforms, not the freaking party. Learn to think; do a little research. All is not what it seems. Most politicans lie through their teeth to get elected and don't give a flip about the idiots who put them in office.

For they will be blinded by their desires and curse your beliefs. And even give their interpretation of scriptures saying they are faith. Godless men and women promoting gaia yet emasculating primal DNA traits to achieve false equalities. All kept together by a false fiat currency and monetary system. The middle ages will seem like the good old days as barbarism regresses a culture to pre feudalism and a dark age hell bent on human atrocities and maybe even human extermination. Protect yourselves if you feel you must. For the architects of fear have invaded our conscious and there is very little brain matter left for logic. Remember, be civil during the dark times until challenged for personal safety. This is your test for Godliness. Even if it crawls under your skin. Let the nasty ones make their moves and deal with them from their offenses. Join with all who remain civil and keep their political views to a minimum during the sunset times. Have no patience with traitors to your survival as you welcome newcomers for the same. It is always darkest before the dawn. And it will happen for your children as people realize there is a common sense from what we did to ourselves..

Remember what you have been taught in your life. Do not trust any uncivil men as times decline. I talk from total living including a spiritual one I do not even follow that much. But to many people today, including most on these forums are godless even if they profess to be of that. When confronted in future endeavors, trust only when verified. Accumulate something to help your lives during bad times. What you can afford. Give yourselves a chance. Remember. Your neighbor may sell you out.

The stupidity of the white racist is evident. Imagine if he replied to a Jewish person "whatever you say, you little racist KIKE." This simpleton addresses a Black man, and one far above his intellectual and moral leve, with the arhaic racist slur term "pickaninny," and has the NERVE to shout "racist!" in the same breath. Obviously, not even noticing the inconsistency and duplicity.
Morons like "Jack" form a susbstantial part of the Republican base. And conservatives wonder why even most of the Black BOURGEOISIE won't go near the Republican Party!

Empty right wing rhetoric. The government, unfortunately, is largely an extension of the corporate structure.
Actually, one is then "shackled" by corporate power indirectly when one has a government job, and more directly in the private sector. It's a form of corporate serfdom.
The equating of the "left" (itself an often vague notion) with "plantation owners" is simple, mindless pish posh. There are no plantation owners in the 21 st Century, or so few you can easily count them.
When there WERE slaveholding plantation owners, it was mainly from the AMERICAN LEFT---the ABOLITIONISTS and rebel slaves themselves--that the staunchest opposition to the plantation owners came.
The plantation owners themselves were the most RIGHT WING element in American political life.
Hence your equating of the "left" with real or imaginary plantation owners is sheer fabrication.
But while the dominant class in America was once the planterrs, they are today the CORPORATE oligarchy. The corporate 1% are the nearest equivalent to planters of yesteryear. And BOTH parties are in bed with the corporate elite to some extent. But the Democrats are more like the corporate mistress, while the REpublicans are more like the WIFE.
It is from the LEFT that the main opposition to corporate power comes. And the largest single ethnic basis of progressive opposition to corporate power in the national Black Commmunity.

Ron Paul I thought was useful to stir things up. In still think it would have been a good thing if he'd been elected President.
However, I cannot go along with his libertarian extremism, as in asserting there should be no public schools, no govt involvement at all in the provision of medical care, etc.
Rand, espousing the same “libertarian” ethos, however acts like a typical Tea Party shill for corporate interests... the populist version of the 80's yuppie/rich redneck conservative. He is doing nothing to confront corporate power, or the “corporatism” identified by his father.
Rand Paul I think has value in being one of the extremist nutcases who is going to do even more damage to the GOP than Reaganomics/Dubya have done.
I was on Howard University's campus on the day Rand Paul arrived. I was too busy to attend his talk, but some of my students were there. These Howard students were not impressed with Rand Paul. They knew about his attitude towards Civil Rights. Also, they already knew that some Republicans---LIBERAL REpublicans--had contributed to the founding of the NAACP. These upper middle class intellectual black youth (not to mention their profs)were somewhat taken aback that Mr. Paul didn't know that this was OLD NEWS for most of them. They also knew that rhe Republican Party of 1909 was a different animal than today's Party.
Some students also knew that there were SOCIALISTS among the founders of the NAACP as well.....something that Rand Paul would not be so excited about.

I don't agree with libertarians like Rand Paul on all of their economic things, but love their personal liberty perspective of things. Plus their hero Ayn Rand was a major hypocrite taking welfare and Medicaid in the last years of her life when she was dying of lung cancer. Libertarians are in love with their theories but in the real world they come off as immature fools.

To anyone with a clue white or black, that's exactly the situation unfortunately. You don't get to be prez unless you agree to play the game of the elites, Obama's color is irrelevant, that fcker is still bailing out the banks and corrupt financial institutions and Holder ain't prosecuting anybody. Too big to fail and too big to prosecute according to these guys. Obama might occasionally throw a minor bone or two to pretend to be progressive, but that's just for show. The important sht still favors the elite to an incredible degree, but the muppets are just too stupid to realize this.
