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.
All this proves is that people don`t listen.
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.
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.

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.
Those who refuse to be uninformed should not influence the future."
Huh. Those who won`t be uninformed? Strange way to look at it.
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.
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

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.
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.~
Wow...I see why your icon is of cartman
This stupidity of people in this country astounds me.
