I know a lot of the Republican posters will think that this is a race baiting question but seriously the truth is the total opposite.
Black people and other minorities have been supporting and voting for white men since they got the right to vote, some have been truly great men and others were just average.
But blacks and other minorities voted for who they thought was the best candidate and after the elections were over they went about their lives and supported the President of the United States in both war and peace.
But right now today in America whether you choose to believe it or accept the fact, there is a real shortage of classy, sophisticated, intelligent, charismatic white men, and most of those which "are made of the right stuff" are not in the Republican Party.
In the Republican Party what you get today is white men and women making appeals not to the best ideals of the American, but instead to racial hatred, prejudice, sexual discrimination and religious bigotry or something I choose to call skin color politics.
They campaign using hot button social issues like abortion, affirmative action, and Gay and Lesbian Sex and Marriage to drive their voters to the polls. They do it because Republicanism is a selfish and greedy ideology always emphasizing individual rights over the real needs of the community.
All of us know that most men are not as smart as ants and bees and even some wild animals who live in colonies or hunt in packs. But unlike those creatures, Republicans and the Republican Party work not for the good of mankind or even their own nation but only for themselves.
They know what is good for the country but they willfully refuse to do it, preferring instead to play political games in hopes of winning future elections. Not even realizing that there are times when the actions of a man or in this case a entire political party acting in concert may very well push the economy of this country past the point of no return.
You can call it a fail safe, tipping point or what ever you want but our economy is sliding inexorably toward it, it is the point where our obligations overwhelm are ability as a nation to meet them.
Many American families have already experienced this already as they have lost their credit, their jobs, their homes, their automobiles, and some even experienced the break up of their families themselves.
The Republican Party and it's ugly twin sister the Tea Party Movement have nothing new to offer America or the American people in the way of solutions to the real problems facing the nation as we fight to maintain our standards of living or our leadership role in the world.
In fact as evidenced by their " 2010 Republican Party Pledge to America"" all of their ideological driven plans and goals for America are just re treads from their failed policies of the past, whether it was their much heralded " Contract with America in 1994 " or their Trillion Dollar Tax Cut for the Rich in 2001 and 2003 which itself was simply the latest version of "Trickle Down Economics".
When you go to the polls this November, simply ask yourselves this question.
As and American citizen who either was or is unemployed through no fault of your own, down on your luck, but not lazy, and in real danger of losing your family, your, car, and your home.
Which political party do you want in charge of the country?
The one that created this mess or the one that is trying to get the nation out of the mess.
If you go into those voting booths, thinking about, abortion, gay marriage, affirmative action, or the color of the Presidents skin and vote Republican then America is destined to join Egypt, Ancient Persia, Ancient Greece, Rome, the Byzantium Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and the British Empire and others as just history lessons in world history books.
In the meantime I think I am going to get the Rosetta Stone and start learning Chinese or Hindu as China and India are poised and on the brink of becoming the worlds new economic super powers of the 21st century.
The Republicans and the Tea Party Movement will not be satisfied until we have a "white President with good Christian values" and they have finally weakened and crippled America permanently.
And the racism and bigotry which is the legacy of the slave holding south will have finally won the Civil War.
