Why pick Obama or Hillary?

Many people will vote for Hillary because she would be America's first Female President. Many other people will vote for Obama because he would be America's first black President.

I've been called a sexist for refusing to vote for Hillary. If I don't vote for her, I'm against women. I've been called a racist for refusing to vote for Obama. If I don't vote for her, I want to oppress black folks.

So, by their logic, I must vote for a candidate based on the color of his skin, or for the type of genitalia she possesses. Well, I am not voting for genitals, and I am not voting for skin.

I am not even voting for a Party. I am voting for an ideology, a philosophy, not for a group. Both Parties have the wrong ideas for America. Both Parties want to perpetuate the same mistakes, and I cannot go along with it.

I would be a racist if I voted for a man based on his skin color. I would be a sexist if I voted only for one type of gender. Since I am doing neither, I cannot be either.

If Ron Paul was a black woman, then I would be casting my vote for the first black woman President. Yet, Ron Paul just happens to be a white male. I chose Ron because of his ideas, not because he's white and male. And I firmly believe that all those people who vote for skin and genitals need to wake up and start learning economics and politics.

This dumbing down of America works in favor of the people entrenched in the current political power structure, who need to perpetuate this system for their own benefit. Their benefit is not our benefit. Wake up, America! Start studying Austrian economics. From there, start learning some real politics, and start questioning Big Brother's propaganda. The best consumer is a smart consumer, and likewise the best voter is an educated one.

You're absolutely right and by the way, I LOVE the Hillary pics. I was just saying to Dino the other day that she just looks terrible lately. Guess it hasn't been just lately. Anyhow, yes, America should wake up. Voting for someone because of their skin color or gender IS racist and sexist. Sad part is that people who would have otherwise never voted at all will be voting during these elections for those reasons alone. They'll regret it once "universal health care" comes into play...

Hi Peggy,

Thanks for the reply. Ah, yes, that infamous "universal healthcare" we've been informed is such a good thing. The "universal" part means that everyone will have healthcare, whether they want it or not. Here in Massive-two-shits, the government penalizes us for not having healthcare. I'm assuming this is also "free healthcare," which we will all pay more in taxes for. I think we have the type of government we have because most of us believe that things we pay for are actually "free." I'm glad you like the Hillary pics. I had seen a couple of her weird expressions and decided to make a collage of our dear Feminazi leader-in-running. :-)
