                                                     Political discrimination




There is discrimination, but who is being discriminated might surprise you.




I am told that if I知 black I must vote for Barack Obama, or I知 a traitor.

If I知 white I must vote for Obama, or I知 racist.

If I知 old I must vote for youth, because I知 too old to make a decision anymore.

If I知 a woman I am a supporter and follower, not a leader.

If I知 a veteran (I am a disabled vet) of WWII or Korea, my benefits need to be cut because I致e lived too long.

If I知 retired, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to put a windfall tax on my retirement.

If I知 on Social Security, the fund will run out because the government needs the money for other things.

If I知 rich, I知 not entitled to keep my money because it痴 needed to help those who can稚 work or choose not to.

If I vote for John McCain, he will die in office because he痴 too old.



Who is being discriminated against?


I notice that one category was left out of all this: 

If you are a woman, you were supposed to be for Hillary, or supposed to be a traitor to your sex.

Well, I am not buying any of it.  I think people should vote for whichever candidate they like the best, but I also think that people should vote the issues over personality. 

As for all people not voting for Obama being racist, I don't know about that, but I will say this:  I've heard of people invent some awfully superficial reasons for not voting for him (even though they might share his position on the issues), but that is for them to wrestle with. 

As I said, the reason why Obama has so much support is because so many people don't see race when they look at him, or, at least, they don't see it first.

And he will protect Social Security, while McCain has already said that he wants to privatize it.  Republicans have been raiding the Social Security trust fund since the 1980's, so I don't know why anyone would vote for another one of them.
