We all saw the passion of the Obama sweep in the last elections. People were fired up. Just like now. Obama ran on the “hope and change” policy. He jumped into office and has passed more things than any President before. He has stayed in the public eye and tried to keep America in touch with what is going on. In the midst of two wars, not his, a horrible economy, the oil spill and numerous other major problems happening, he has still created a glimmer of hope and has started the wheels turning for change. Exactly what he said in his pre-office pledge.
Nevertheless, America is fired up again. Only from the other side. Now, it is the conservative side, in all of their self righteous glory, fighting for something different. They proclaimed their mightier than thou attitude in 2008 and were so outraged at the way the Obama campaign was executed and the many outside associations that went south, because the conservatives were supposedly, exposing them. Such as ACORN. Turns out that they had to invent scenarios, to actually make the story look worse, just to get much of anything.
Now, the mid-term elections are coming to an emotional end next week and we are seeing the worm turn. In the 2008 Presidential elections, ACORN and President Obama were chastised for 3 black men standing in front of a polling place, looking intimidating. They did not threaten anyone. They did not approach anyone, asking them questions about their voting habits.
The Conservative Right was in an uproar. They were pissed off and appalled. They tried to blame President Obama for the whole mess. They continued up until the last 6 months, to talk about the incident. They stretched the facts and made the whole thing out to be a terrorist act. They dragged the drama on forever. Now, we see the REAL extremism coming to light. Only it isn’t the horrible Democrats and the BLACK MAN in the White House. It is the same ignorant, self righteous, low self esteem, conservatives that were the accusers in 2008.
As people are preparing for the voting procedure, no one thought they would have to have a bodyguard going to events or going to the polls. However, the desire to win, by the Right, is overshadowing good sense. The extreme behavior, on Monday night between a woman representing Move-on.org and Tim Profitt, a Rand Paul volunteer, is impossible to get out of your head. A huge man, and a small slender woman. Yet he was video taped, stomping on this poor girl. It was only a week ago that a journalist covering the Alaska race with Joe Miller, another Tea Party candidate, found himself confronted by security thugs after asking too many questions.
There is yet more news of supporters of the extreme right wingers, showing up at polling places with the intention of questioning potential voters about who they are going to vote for. WHAT? Yet, news information says no one has any intention of stopping this. So, let me understand here. The Right can beat the opposition physically and it is OK? They can stand outside of polling places and not just look intimidating, they are going to QUESTION people? What the Heck?
I would say the shoe is on the other foot now and that it is about to show it’s true colors, and it ain’t going to be black. The Tea Partiers and the Conservative side has lost it’s minds. It has reverted from freedoms to terrorism. It has taken America backwards 50 years. The hate and violence against this Presidency and the supporters of this administration is unprecedented. It is so apparent that it is not about issues, as much as it is about “the whole black man leading the country”, thing. Racial slurs on every corner. Threats of violence and downright acts, that if demonstrated by the Democrats, would be denounced over and over.
The Tea Partiers and Republicans are out of control. They have people like Rand Paul running, that are reminiscent of the extremists that live off in the woods, armed to the teeth. You have the other crazy, Christine O’Donnell running, Sharon Angle, who at best is a psycho and Ken Buck in Colorado, who would take America back into the Dark Ages. Now, you have the latest threat from these idiots. Wild looking white boys, looking like Militia, asking voters questions, trying to sway their votes.
Don’t be intimidated America. Do you really want to vote in this election? This damn well, go to the polls. Go by and pick up your neighbor or your family member and taking them with you. Have your phone set to 911 speed dial. Take your big brother or husband or boyfriend with you. Whatever you do, don’t let these clowns stop you from voting.
This is still America and the “White Right” is losing control. It is scared to death of this black President and they are willing to go back to the Civil War to prove their point. They don’t care who they scare or what the law says. They are going to try and bully people to get their way.
Well, folks! Are you going to let them do that to you? I refuse. I live in Colorado and will be out bright and early on Election Day, casting my vote for every single Democrat on the ballot. Whether I like them or not! Why? To prove to the idiots on the other side, you can’t stop people from thinking like they want to, which is obviously the attitude they have.You are welcome to watch me vote, but you won’t prevent me from voting like I want to! That is my right as an American! GET OVER IT! And if you stop me to give me your point of view, I will lose my good sense and tell you what bus you can get on and where you can get off!
You didn’t want to work together to fix America, you only want to fight and be obstinate! That doesn’t help America! Though, there are always those folks that live to fight and don’t have any intention of getting along or working together. Stand Up America! Vote! For who YOU want to…not what some extreme clown suggests!
