We should all, as Americans, realize that we have been lead like live-stock into racial sides, by media and entertainment. We should come together and demand changes in our political offices, hold these trouble making fear mongerers feet to the fire. From Al Sharpton to black panthers, from Fox to MSNBC, from Bill O'Riley to the KKK. Definitely need to do an investigation into BRAIN-WASHING of the american public. We could all be living so much better, without the bad spending and corruption caused by the top 2%. I make less than a Democrat, and I'm not a republican... I'm a father of american children foremost, and I hate where we are heading.
1. Term limits for politicians. Two terms for any given position.
2. Repeal of lifetime salaries/pensions for politicians. They approved that, not us.
3. Restriction to one topic/subject per bill presented in Congress.
4. Elimination of Affirmative Action. Elimination of questions regarding race, gender, or sexual orientation from applications. Applicants should be chosen based on qualifications and Merritt.
5. Enforce immigration laws.
6. Rewarding USA production, tax foreign production.
7. Repeal all restrictions/laws infringing the second amendment.
8. Elect average people to represent average people.
9. Place a cap on campaign funds that can be spent for any given election.
10. The US Constitution and the legally ratified amendments should be followed to the letter. No exceptions!
11. I have no problem with the requirement of photo ID to vote. Tax payers would be charged less in the long run if the government provided free photo IDs to those who can't afford them.
12. Eliminate all unnecessary government jobs and agencies.
13. Allow third party candidates to participate in Presidential Debates, without a 15% showing in polls.
14. Utilize domestic oil sources that are not being utilized.
15. Switch to a flat tax system with no deductions, starting at 15%, decreasing every 10 years as reliance on government assistance is phased out.
16. Eliminate "Fair Housing" Laws. The name is VERY misleading.
17. Eliminate Union strong arming that increases cost of doing business for business owners.
18. Require military service of 2 years between high school and college.
19. Require a total of 5 years contributing taxes before voting rights are earned.
20. Require voters to be a taxpayer. Those who do not contribute should not determine tax dollar destination.

Might mention I have my kids classes as non white as I know withaffermative action its for the best.
ButI will always remember the fair skinned red woman with an Irish name who said it was affermative action that helped Hispanic women like herself get ahead

I could have taken that route. My Native American genealogy could have saved money, advanced my education more quickly, and exempted me from taxes.
I chose to do it on my own. No one can say I am a doctor because I'm part Cherokee, rather than merit. No one can say I got a free ride. No one can say I complain about tax rates but do not pay taxes.
I understand your stance, and do not blame you for utilizing the system. If you note my previous post, you will notice I promote the removal of race from applications all together. Let the best applicant get the position.
I'm sure you agree.

I agree Race should not be factor in anything.
But I knew putting down white or Asians would have hurt them when I ws trying to get them into a mgnet school so I listed other.
I would still like to hear from some Liberal why affermative action should penalize Asian Americans when it comes to education. They where for the most part victims of racism and had nothing to do with the slave trade.

I guess the university had met it's quota for students with almost shaped eyes. It's perhaps just as well. Those universities with quotas and tuition rates so expensive they require most students to have either a federal grant or a $$$,$$$ loan, my opinion is that they're overrated.

true, FDR didnt intern the blacks like he did with Japanese Asian Americans by Executive Order 9066.

United States Executive Order 9066 was a United States presidential executive order signed and issued during World War II by the United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, authorizing the Secretary of War to prescribe certain areas as military zones. Eventually, EO 9066 cleared the way for the deportation of Japanese Americans to internment camps. The executive order was spurred by a combination of war hysteria and reactions to the Niihau Incident.

Lol, it is because the average "African American IQ is 85, the average White IQ is 99, and the average Asian IQ is 103.

It has nothing to do with being a minority. They can not compete in general, on an academic level.

Worked for me then, works for me now. The truth always works.
The problem is this, it was 47% in 2012. Liberals made a huge deal about the statement for the knee jerk backlash. It worked for them. It doesn't change the facts.
Now, the Obama Administration is scrambling to delay the full implementation of Obamacare to hide the true results of that fiasco, in hopes of maintaining or salvaging Democrat votes in 2014.
By 2016, that 47% will have grown to well over 50%, and there will never be another conservative president in this country at that point. That is, until the productive, tax paying citizens revolt, and take their country back. Make no mistake, that day is inevitable. What side will you fight on?
Oooh, pull out your old butternut uniforms, the confederacy is coming back......

Oh yes, I'm sure if was "family name" why no blacks were elected president before Obama.

Or no blacks were appointed to the SCOTUS before Thurgood Marshall.

They just lacked the right name........(moron)

If you do not have sex, what your sexual orientation is is immaterial. Once you act, it becomes another matter.

Gay is a behavior and race is not, a big difference. Conflating the two is to free ride on racism.
Nope, gay is a sexual orientation.

And just like race, sexual orientation is an innate condition. I can no more change my sexual orientation than I can change my race.

Why must you have revenge?
Why can't you allow people to acknowledge wrongs, correct them, and move on in the correct way? Why must you wrong the descendants of the previous wrong doers?
Will you ever find happiness? Will whipping whitey, naming him Toby, and chopping his foot off if he tries to run away, make your life fulfilled?
Truth be told, Affirmative action, other reverse discrimination, and government handout abuse, is the only reason racism is even considered a relevant issue today.
Accept the positive changes. Move on with your life, and try to enjoy it. The world will be a better place.
Oh so now the racist only hate the blacks because some of them get welfare or benefit from affirmative action?

Gee, it's the new & improved racists!

I realize you want to whitewash the past and pretend there are no inequities or discrimination left and that everything in just hunky-dory. The guilty always want people to just forget the past.

Why do you fear revenge? Sounds like a guilty conscience to me.

Take note researching fence sitters. Once again, the liberal agenda is backed by insults rather than facts or even posts of substance.
If anyone is "on the fence" about whether racism is good or bad, then TRUST me, I don't want them on my side.

Take note researching fence sitters- GO JOIN THE BIGOTS ALREADY.

Your national debt is the result of military complex wars and
support of the banking and financial system to keep the economy alive.
Basically by putting money directly into the pockets of the corporate class.
They screwed everything up, and now they are destroying the country by being supported by borrowed money. State support of business sounds like communism.. socialism at least.
Wake up USA.
No arguing about the borrowed money. I can only imagine what happens when the credit line gets used up.

Even when YOUR bigotry leads to her hard work being ignored, so that a minority can be accepted based on race?
I guess you knew she would have to ignore your bigotry one day, thus you taught her to do so.
No worry, she understands that the racism of the past needs to be atoned for, and if a black person gets a job over her she'll simply congratulate them and move on, knowing full well her white privilege will ensure she has a successful career.

So you say. But, you also say, 250+ years of white slavery and discrimination is required to right the wrong.
Abolishing the wrong is not good enough for you.
That is not righting past wrongs. That is enacting revenge on people who never committed those past wrongs.
I personally think you need to work on liking, and eventually loving yourself. What have you done that deserves such unhappiness, and the need to torment others? You know, if you work on appreciating yourself, others will begin to appreciate you as well.
Why are you so afraid of revenge?

Sounds like a guilty conscience to me.

Actually I'm a very happy person; I just love screwing with the bigots such as yourself.

Lol. Are you on the fence? Can you allow a post to others, without adding your negative liberal perspective?
I think the people here, reading this thread, are intelligent enough to weigh the posts, the facts, and the methods, to draw their own conclusions. Thank you very much.
I think anyone who doesn't know that racism is wrong should just kill themselves now, because they're too stupid to figure anything else out and will likely be a burden on society the rest of their moronic lives.
