[QUOTE=shakin318;2840899]I'm not bitter in the least. With the exception of slight fluctuations in my paycheck, my life has hummed along rather nicely no matter which party has been in power.
Obama winning will expose a lot about this country -- exposing much of what was bad while exposing much about it that is great. As for a racist country electing a black man, only a true democrat could do that math.[/QUOTE]
Good for you. But as to your last point, I did not say we are a racist country in toto. I said racism is alive and well within our country. And you know as well as I do that there are all too many whites whose main criterion for not voting for Obama is his skin color. They just can't bring themselves to vote for what one idiot referred to as "that black boy." I have absolutely no problem whatsoever with those who choose not to vote for Obama because of experience, policies, ideology, or the friends he keeps -- or vote for McCain because they agree with his. Look at the electoral map. Do you see a pattern re race? I do.
