First of all, the debate was on ABC/Channel 7 not Fox. Second of all the proper pronunciation is yourselves (not yourself). Thirdly...African American/Blacks were freed under the Republican Party. Yes, Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. So the rights you have now, to post nonsense on a blog is due to the Republican party. Last but not least a bum is a someone who lives as a vagabond, or has a low-life mentality. That definitely doesn't describe Candidate Arrington.

Please utilize spell-check not to mention fact-check before you post nonsense. By the way here's a little history for you about the political parties complimentary YahooAnswers:

Abraham Lincoln was a Republican, and freed the slaves.
The Republicans enacted the laws that (on paper) gave Blacks citizenship, voting rights, and reconstructed a destroyed Confederacy.

It was Republicans that supported Lyndon Johnson's Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1966! Not the Dem's
It was State and Local Democrats that instituted "Jim Crow" laws to keep Blacks as Sharecroppers and denied them voting rights with literacy tests between 1865 and 1968!

So..I ask..Why do Black overwhelmingly vote Democrat???? Its like Jewish people voting for the Nazi Party!!!!???
I just don't get it!

He still lost. He finished with less than 3 percent of the votes, which by the way was LAST! The above comments were clearly just stating how they felt about the "Loser" Arrington. No, he isn't a bum as the definition states, but he is worthless.

He's not even a real Republican. He thought he had a better chance to win as a Republican so that's why he ran as a Republican. Trust me I know!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, EducationWorld, stated, "We hope, and pray that you win the Senate Seat. Illinois, truly needs a man of God, to serve!"

Not only did he lose shamelessly, but a Man of God? Hahaha. A Man of God he is NOT! EducationWorld, I think you need to fact-check that! LOLOLOLOLOL
