19. Hear, Hear.

I'm with you heaven05.
The whole campaign of the republicans has been a shameful embarrassment and the numbers of Americans who are willing to accept their pitch is an even worse embarrassment.
Yet, I sense that this is the last stand of that ideology. The racism and bigotry on display can't be swept under the rug any longer. The examples identify Republicans from the top of the presidential ticket to their most base supporters, as dyed in the wool racists.
These are people evil and will be recognized as such.
Concerning blacks and second-class citizenship, I already see a positive difference in the black communities self-identity and confidence. President Obama and his family are wonderful role models for all Americans and they serve to highlight just how mediocre, selfish, and entitled the losers, who have been running the show, have been.
We are not going back to the "kinder, gentler" times of the 50s because to do so the uber-class would have to be taxed 80 to 90% of their income. Since they are unwilling to pay to recreate their fantasy past/future, they are attempting to take over by storm, but mother nature isn't behind them this time and her winds have been weak. That is why the major pundits have had to out themselves as shills for the corporate elites. They are frantically blowing into the sails and whipping those tied to the oars to get themselves, and their master's chosen candidate, out of the doldrums. This time they don't have enough power to catch the wind (crossing fingers) and they will be seen floundering near the starting gate when the race is over.
After Obama's second term, even those blinded by race hatred will come to recognize who their real allies are.
Times are changing.
