You and Hatter can argue the presidents race till the cows come home, I am just saying that Bill Clinton was ticked that the "race card" got played on him. He was out maneuvered and Hillary will now have to try again in 3 yrs. So, it is not such a "new" charge.

I was talking about the national election, where I firmly believe a large number of people voted against him purely because of his skin color.

I don't know if anyone voted against him in the primaries because of it.

Annnnnd Hatter now shows his true colors.

I am not making a case that he is a bad president because of his race....or that it has ANYTHING to do with his performance. I don't agree with his policies and believe he is running the country into bankruptcy because of those policies.

But, there were a TON of people in this country that voted for him because of the color of his skin.....just like there were idiots who voted against him just because of the color of his skin.

My assertion is that more people voted for him for that reason than did not vote for him for that reason.

I believe that anyone who votes for a candidate just becuase of gender, race, religion, etc (even merely becuase of the party they are affilited with are idiots).

I not only want straight ticket voting abolished, I would like to see the R and D next to every candidate be eliminated. Force people to actually know who the candidates are and what they stand for .

His polices so far are:

Don't spend as much as Bush did

Pay for what you are using via taxes, as economists agree that this is the only way anything will ever be accomplished

All that the FED has printed is giving a false sense of security. That's one of the main reason some companies are making their workers do more with less. They see there isn't room for expansion. Not all industries but some.

At some poin you can't cook the books and play a shell game with the mass general public.

I'm not calling for a financial collapse but we are not out of the woods yet.

Look at Euro and dollar exchange rates prior to 2008... US stock marked crashed, Euro sinked and European countries start going bankrupt. Italy, Spain, and France on a verge of being broke. If US market crashes again, Europe is done. Done! US dollar will start deflating because everyone will try to dump euro for us dollars, more stable currency. Why would people pick US dollar over lets says Chinese money? US dollars tied to oil, pretty much guarantees that dollar will some what keep its value. Plus if Europe goes bankrupt, this will crash asian markets as well. If US sneezes, the rest of the world catch a cold.

Here's a graph of US/EU historic exchange rates.

We are at the easiest spot in history to see exactly what is going to happen in the next two decades. Government is going to try and create fiat currency to cover its unfunded liabilities while continuing to make promises and get votes from dumbasses that believe their poo. We deserve what we get as a country. The sad part is that our kids will bear the brunt of our hubris coupled with utter stupidity. Personal accountability a testament to our strength of character? Yeah... good luck with that

The monetary situation with China is what worried me in the N Korea thread also.

Not sure what our extreme debt to certain countries will do to our resolve to be there for our allies.

This is where both Reps and Dems want us. While they and those who put them in office rob us blind and our liberties are stripped.

Stopmtryingno blame, drop your bullshit party flag waving and start supporting some candidates worth a damn.

Been screaming this for a while.

I can't wait for a group, either side, that is prepared for some belt tightening.

The problem is that they will be demonized and most people want to keep their free crap coming, so good luck. I agree that belt tightening is needed, but DC gets by on paying people for their votes. Don't think they will all just miraculously "grow up" and become statesmen and leaders. Nope, they will say stuff like "you want to starve Granny, kick kids out of college, and on an on and on. Morons will believe them and vote them back in. Pulling for you though.
