Democratics vs Repulicans is a bunch of butt sucking nonsense.
You see i kept myself from cursing on that one. hahaaa
Its rich vs poor, yeah middle class is the new poor of today.
You "voting" because of someone skin color reflects dumbness and racism.
You "voting" because of someone "talking good" reflects lack of education and stupidity.
But before you jump let me explain.
You say "voting for someone of your race is showing support".
Well how about if they wanted to destroy the world would you still put bullets in the gun for them.
"Lets tax the rich and give more support to welfare."
Then you wonder why job are disappearing.
Think about that
I'm not taking sides I'm defending myself as a citizen who doesnt cheat on my taxes.
While these females are running around having babies, living the street lyfe and getting government assistants; the people who are working hard with no kids get more money taken out of their check to support these females.
How is it a man can easily be put on child support and go to jail if he pay doesnt matter if he doesnt have a job; yet, a female get the minimum and keep getting chances if she doesn't.
Do I need to continue?
Racism is a factor in this country yes but its the level of maturity that plays a bigger factor.
Just because you "from the hood" does not mean you can't make it to the white house.
Just because you "went to a poor school" doesnt mean you can't be a doctor or lawyer.
And just because one or both of your parents walked out on you doesn't mean you got to be a "thug" or "whore" in the streets to survive.
When someone tells you "you can't" show them you can.
When someone throws dirt on your name, wash that mess off and polish it with knowledge.
Females just because he say "you beautiful" doesn't mean open your legs.
Fellas just because "she looks like a dime" doesn't mean she worth more then a penny.
There once was a time when marriage meant commitment between two people.
Now these days the word "marriage" is used and abused like a terriost prisoner.
Like love...
I'm not here to tell you what to think, how to think, nor when to think but I want you to open up your minds and realize what is going on around you.
America is the home of the great but it's looking like a great disaster.
We are suppose to be the leaders of the world.
Let's get back on track and show why we are on top.
Wake up

    Wow, Artist of the Mind, that's telling them! I guess this is post-election release of all that pent up anxiety--I like the last two stanza's best, the encourage ment, love the Wake Up repeated.
