Don't Be Angry

The republicans are running neck and neck with the democrats in the presidential race. Why are we so angry and surprised?! For some reason, level-headed people are shocked and appalled that two almost-college-drop-outs have a good shot of taking over the White House. This is just a wake up call for everyone who has been bamboozled by the media into thinking that we've come a long way in our society. News flash............we haven't! I hate to break it to you, but there are probably more ignorant people in the United States than not. Consequently, we could possibly be faced with the worst four years in our country's history.

Here's my suggestion to all of you who are angry; don't be. You can't be angry with people who have been taught to be backwards and racist. They don't know any better. They live in their own little world that allows them to flourish with a bigoted mentality. We can't blame them. If you're upset with this injustice, go be a teacher. Educate somebody! Ignorance is bliss! Let's face it. There are just some people who would rather have our country go to hell in a hand basket than to have a president who is only half black (we forget that he is half white too).

My plea to everyone is to do something positive to influence and educate people. Register someone to vote. Take someone to the polls with you. Stay on top of the issues and speak the truth. Represent yourselves in a respectable manner and for God's sake VOTE!
