Thread Name: BS: Election fraud
Subject: RE: BS: Election fraud
Quite correct, Sawzaw, people should vote only on the basis of suitability to the job (plus the candidate's stated platform and policies, of course).

As you say, "beware of people that keep bringing up the issue (of race or something like that) for they will perpetuate it forever".

Dead right.

I favor Obama over McCain on the basis of what I consider simply his better suitability for the job, and his general policy positions, etc. You no doubt favor McCain for similar reasons. That's fine. We each make the best judgement we can about things like that.

I understand Greg Palast's position on the matter, and why he thinks that way. That's his own best judgement, based on his own past experience. But...I would prefer that people simply stop bringing "race" into politics, because it should have nothing to do with whom you vote for.
