27. this is going to be a hard nauseating election season, because the only
way they can win is to use the scary black man and scary brown people tactic. They can't win on the war, the economy, or any other issue, because they have screwed everything up so bad. For me, it will be a challenge, and maybe i will grow as a person because I plan to fight until death, this election is way too important.

I say it will be a challenge because I have never been comfortable confronting or debating people on emotional issues.
