I live in an area of Kansas with some open racists (my kinda term for people who aren’t afraid to admit it), unlike the tons who try to pretend they aren’t or really EXPLAIN to you why they aren’t racist. Like I can’t be racist here’s my list of favorite black people ahem, ahem, ahem. But even these people aren’t going around trying to figure out why more blacks aren’t voting the same way as them.
Not claiming race here at all…the vast majority of whites in California voted for Obama and their palms are just as open as Detroit.
My point was, this is what it has come too now…quid pro quo. It’s also the reason we cannot elect nybody who will try and solve the problem.
I apologize if I was putting a view out you weren’t taking. Was just saying that many people wonder why blacks are voting Democratic when one party almost openly admits they support things like the “don’t re-n** shit”.
There are just as many racists in the Democratic party as the GOP, it’s just more socially accetable for it to be that way…witness what happened to Stacy Dash when she came out in support of Romney.
I am just sick of the “everbody gets a trophy generation” that is going to entitle us into oblivion.
And I agree, why would anybody vote for somebody who was going to take something away from them…no argument on that here.
The Democrats also have racists of course, but one has especially lent itself to as you say socially acceptable in the past few cycles.
The everybody gets a trophy is a societal thing. Blame society from the top to the bottom. Both parties are equally willing to hand things out. Republicans are just as eager to hand out as Democrats are. In terms of defense contracts or farm bills in the past or stimulus checks or expanding medicare. Both parties LOVE big government and HATE it when they aren’t in power. The Left RAILED against the government for doing too much when they were out of power. Don’t hear them now. The Right will clamor about big government now that it’s not them, but did you hear them loud and clear in 06? 07? Where was the “tea party” then? Oh those people were still around…telling people they didn’t “support the troops” if they ever questioned anything the government did.
Both parties LOVE to give away government money to what their people want. But don’t blame the big parties for the everybody gets a trophy thing. Blame parents. Blame a society that wants to sue anyone into oblivion anytime they fuck up. Blame a society that glorifies trash like Jersey Shore or The Hills or My Super Sweet 16 or any other garbage.
Society isn’t losing it’s morals as everyone wants to argue, it’s losing its backbone. We are lazy as fuck and don’t give a shit about hardly anything. We have twitter, delivery pizza, and XBOX 360. We don’t really give a shit about beating anyone out for anything anymore. We sit on facebook and make little jokes about this and that and oh haha funny Obama picture or Romney picture, but we don’t really care. We might get a little annoyed at times, but we don’t have a big enough spine to get angry.
Which is one reason I’m not even remotely fearful about jobs. I’m going to be completely fine. I can show up on time and work my ass off. Most of the people around me can’t do either of those things. I hardly know anyone in real life I’m scared of competing with. I hope it’s not as bad everywhere as it is here in Kansas. I’m surrounded by lazy ass fat slobs.
