16. Untold story...

I think a majorly untold story...of this campaign is the fact that the Republicans kept pushing the idea that minorities wouldn't vote in a gleeful way, in a hopeful way "well, we hope that African Americans and Hispanics won't vote." Not only does this betray their racism but also their absolute hatred of democracy. I heard Obama encouraging people to get out and vote on many occasions and often followed with "whomever you are going to vote for." That is a difference between the candidates that was largely ignored and has major importance. One side want this country to honor its responsibility to vote and take part in the process. The other side is hoping and praying that minority(but now quickly growing)portions of the population will just stay home. Sad.
