Politically Correct Racism

Let’s Be Honest With Ourselves: A new poll from Stanford University about hidden American animosity towards African Americans,  finds that republicans are more likely to dislike blacks at 79% compared to democrats at 32%; republicans may be passive aggressively trading the “N-Word” for the label of socialist when referring to Obama.

Take a Deep Breath Before Voting.

I must say that I have not seen such a drastically opinionated election like this one where people actually believe on both sides of the parties, that one side or the other is truly going to make or break America in four short years.

Now our nation has endured the terrible and tragic events of 9/11, along with the surprise attack by the Japanese in World War Two, and we survived without so much modern social apprehension of our countries abilities to persevere over our own self-inflicted second guessing of our governmental bodies.
With only jobs and the economy as the main focus of the Presidential Election of 2012, we should count ourselves lucky that with all our seemingly impossible problems of the last decade; they still pale in comparison with what we as a nation have overcome.

My advice to the voters this November on both sides of the political spectrum is to do some old fashioned accounting of our ongoing American blessings, compared with other countries’ political turmoil this year, and calm down enough to make rational choices based on fact; not fear mixed with political propaganda.

Presidential Political Stigma: Being Branded a Socialist.

President Obama started taking real heat about his socialist based ideals with the passing of “Obama Care,” but he isn’t the only president in history to take a political hit with conservatives over their pet social programs during an election year.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt was also plagued by accusations of having socialist values  in the Presidential Election of 1936 ,  because he was perceived as leaning towards European style socialism do to his part in, and belief of, the need for Social Security; socialist in nature by its very name. President Roosevelt also ironically inherited the great depression, and also faced hard questions politically on how well things were improving for the average American citizen.

We will see if on this upcoming Presidential Election day, Obama has as good of luck as Roosevelt had when he was re-elected to a second term in 1936, both in public support during tough financial times, and in our countries economic turnaround.

Merriam-Webster’s Definition of Socialism: 1 - any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. 2 - A: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property. B: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state. 3: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

My Definition of a Socialist: A socialist is someone who holds the hopes, needs, and dreams of the many as more important than the materialistic political schemes of the greedy few.  A socialist feels naturally responsible for feeding, housing, educating, and medically treating all those in their society who are in need of it; regardless of whether or not they can afford it.

A socialist does these things because he values humanity, community and social unity.

No Passiveness from Biden or Ryan in Vice Presidential Debate.

Heated Vice Presidential Debate

The Vice Presidential Debate was nothing like the last presidential debate, both sides spoke their minds and Biden addressed America directly along with Ryan’s accusations over the progress America has made in the last four years.

Both sides of the political race tonight shined with the debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan with plenty of experience in government to back themselves up. They weren’t afraid to take off the gloves when it came to subjects like the Libyan embassy tragedy, and the proposed republican 20 percent tax cut plan if elected.

The sting in the debate had to be felt by the democrats with the recurring question by the Romney campaign of, “are you happier now than you were before America”. Both sides resorted to scare tactics with topics like the middle class and Americas safety from terrorism.
