So GOP White House not the end of the world, to some here?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/04/racial-disparities-criminal-justice_n_4045144.html

Thom just said one in three African American men in FL are in prison or are unable to vote as once in prison.

I think this is more nationwide, and why is it this way?

Simple fact is it is this way to prevent black people from voting, brought to you by the GOP.


Any person who thinks there is not enough reason to vote for the Democrat in November, is

1. Pardon my ignorance, but is this the issue created from when the Republicans signed the Crime Bill?

4. It is the Southern Strategy employed by Nixon and following Repubs

I was born in 1941 in Alabama

When Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act, he said that the white southerners would abandon the Democratic Party and he was right

Nixon and Reagan (who made a speech sympathetic to white racists near where 3 civil rights workers were murdered) and other Repubs developed a plan to get those white votes, which they did. And ever since then the Repubs have done everything possible to keep POC from voting

And you are right that there was a recent story about how Nixon worked to criminalize weed and other drugs to keep POC and free thinking whites from voting

But since she works for the oligarchs, I doubt she will do anything on the federal level, except maybe take away their welfare or bring them to heel.

6. End of the world?

A White House that supports fracking, opposes Glass Steagall, opposes health care for all, opposes college for all, wants a no fly zone in Syria, and supports trade deals that send our jobs overseas?

That kind of gop, far right thinking is what we should all be fighting against. Wait, what's that? Those are Clinton's stances? Oh...

Hillary is only for gay people's votes. She doesn't give a shit about any of us, gay or not, and I personally do not give a shit about casting a vote for her. I do not cast right wing votes, nor support right wing stances such as hers. Expect the hard lurch right to make even more liberals not want to vote for her.

often for LIFE, based on their race?

you did, and I am not AT ALL surprised

I just watched a meandering, rambling and nonsensical speech by trump on his foreign policy. He contradicted himself three times in the SAME speech!

He is unfit to lead, unfit to be commander in chief, unfit to be the holder of our nuke codes and then some.

How you all are not afraid of this guy is beyond me.
