The only reason so many people on here are pissed is because they are going to vote for Obama. This is no different than the super religious Christian freaks voting Republican because that is all they know. If they listened to the issues, they would understand that Republicans don`t care about people who make under $200,000 a year.

Are you kidding me? Wow this is why we get screwed in elections becasuse people vote for the people they think have their views but they end up voting for the opposite.

Seriously I don`t even know much about politics myself. i`m not even voting this election because I was too late to register. (my bad I know). But I still keep up with some of their points and these people ARE voting and don`t even know who the F*ck their voting for.

I just..I don`t know...i`m just shocked beyond words. I would love fo Obama to win but I want the votes to be fair.

95% of the blacks are voting for Obama. And it`s not because they agree with his policies. They are proof that Darwin was right: they, more than anyone else, are proof that apes were their ancestors. They have been in this country for 300 years and they still can`t speak English.

This was done by Rick Mercer about a decade ago in Canada, called "Talking to Americans." He made up false stories about Canada AND the USA, and showed how ignorant that people were about politics and Canada-US relations in the united states.

All this proves is that people don`t listen.

Voting for someone because of their race is just as stupid as not voting for someone because of their race.

Oh , sorry lauraly. I wasn`t trying to mention the race part. I was referring to this part
"the Act prohibited states from imposing any "voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure ..."
It`s part of the law. Which shoud be tweaked a bit. Yeah nothing about race :D

"black ppl are gonna vote for a black man no matter what his ideas are....FREAKING MORONS!!!!"

That is a pretty rash comment to make. As long as we see ourselves as "black" and "white" people will continue to act out of ignorance. Divide and conquer, that`s the name of the game. I prefer not to play.

Whoa whoa whoa.. hold on there six, you took his comments WAY out of context, thats for sure.

Ill try to clarify so you can see it differently.

#1 the "uninformed" quote. Basically he is trying to say, if someone that doesn`t know something, shouldnt be deciding how things are done. If you have a 4 year old strategize on how to run a nuclear power plant, its the same thing. They are uninformed on how to properly run it, they dont know. He is saying that people that don`t know what the candidates want, shouldn`t decide which candidate should win.

#2 "some people shouldnt vote" Referring to people that dont vote because someone is good or qualified, but vote based only on race/creed/religion etc etc. These people care less about the country, but more about seeing "someone other then republican/democrat run the office!"

I hope that helped.

Voting isn`t about being informed, it`s about doing what your friends do.

All this means is that black people are stupid which we already knew. Don`t worry though, none of these people will vote unless they put the polling booth next to where they pick up their welfare checks.

Whoa whoa whoa... hang on there sparky. When in the hell did I say it had anything to do with race? I just have a problem with people voting in any particular way for any reason other than facts and whether they agree with the policies and platforms the candidate supports.
Also... I was (at least mostly) joking. You can`t put a standard on who is allowed to vote regarding intelligence or awareness. However, it is frustrating to hear so many ignorant people who are actually involved in the process. I might be pleased that there are Obama supporters who are planning on voting (that is my candidate of choice, BTW) but it doesn`t make me any less disgusted at their ignorance.

"Hungwell

Those who refuse to be uninformed should not influence the future."

Huh. Those who won`t be uninformed? Strange way to look at it.

"Hungwell

I think some people should not be allowed to vote."

So basically anyone who isn`t going to vote for who you want to win? You seem dumb.

I find it odd that they are criticizing people for being ignorant when they don`t even have a full understanding of 6th grade English.

Voting should be viewed as a privilege and not a right

Those who refuse to be uninformed should not influence the future.

Lauraly I think they should or at least demonstrate some degree intelligence. The voting rights act of 1965 should be amended

Idiots on all sides, I suppose. If people knew what was going on and voted based on their actual opinions, the campaign tactics would be completely different. The shît we have going on now just wouldn`t work.

Its not that they dont know sh*t its more likely they dont give a sh*t. All politicians have the same policies, any and every one of them could justify their point with an hour long lecture. And you would be convinced.

All you people saying rednecks would do the same thing, I highly doubt you could ask redneck," What do you like about McCain, the fact that he`s pro gay marriage or for abortion?" and have them go with it. But that said,

It`s true that a lot of people vote for the president based on whether or not he looks like a good guy and not based on the policies of the party. This was also seen in the dissatisfied Clinton voters who threatened to vote for Mccain. I just hope the people on both sides balance each other out.

"Proves that a lot of the people voting for Obama don`t know sh*t about politics.
This stupidity of people in this country astounds me."

so i guess the people voting for McCain are all brilliant and know exactly what he`s about. hell, none of them go to McCain`s and yell "he`s an arab" or "he`s a terrorist" at all.and they`re totally not stupid voting for a lady who obviously is out of touch with 99.9% of the country.

and it`s harlem. poo. no one there is heavy on politics. see what happens when you ask someone from a small town in the south. you`d get the same stupidity.

I said in previous posts, people will automatically vote for which side is Republican / Democrat regardless if it was what they believed in.

Your right about that JJ~ the thing is they live near Harlem so its easier to make a point by going there.

Most of the people that are going to vote are going to vote because they think the other side is bad =/ and after the stigmata of Bush (although really he never did anything in office, the president has power but not as much as people think he does) Obama is going to win. Obama can say "I make out with satan and am currently looking for Jesus` grave to piss on" and he would still win. McCain can say he found the cure for cancer, but needs the presidency to help ratify its use or something, and he will still lose. Im just sad people cant really make there own minds up and go with what the majority says.

~Yes I know that not everyone does this, but the ones that decide the presidency are.~

A media whore, who relies on the attention of idiots and dippoos, is going to suddenly discover the "popularity" principle of elections and politics in general and relate that in some meaningful way?? That is freakin hilarious. I am laughing at Howerd Stern, not with him
