"You know absolutely nothing about the dynamics of race in this country and it's not your fault you don't know any better but, you need to realize you are in no position to challenge anyone on race relations in the US."
WOW! You obviously do not know anything about my race and family history. So please do not tell what I am in a position to have an opinion about. My dad would turn in his grave if he heard someone say such things to me. This will be my last post on this board because of your attitude.
Shoot. I meant to send you an e-mail with a photo from my back deck. My yard looks beautiful as all the trees are covered with snow. But ugh. I really have decided I don't like snow. I mean I wish it would snow and then melt maybe 4 hours after it finishes. It's just a mess to travel in and you have to wear snow boots and a coat. I don't like wearing either one. Anyway----
GO TIGER!!!! SHOW NO MERCY!!!!!!!
I am approaching 50 and have lived altogether some 15 years in the US at different time periods, including the last few years. I am about as black as Tiger. I have three adopted black girls. My black aunt lived her entire life in the US and was murdered because of color. My four black female and successful cousins have communicated with me since I was born.
It is sad that you cannot express your opinion in a positive manner without tearing others apart and constantly telling them they "know nothing". You are doing a disservice not only to yourself. Bye.
i'm sorry, i just saw this, but i believe that all the candidates, paul included, operate with some level of hypocrisy. that is the nature of politics where you are expected to cater to the whims of all subsets of society. would a more suitable candidate for you be gary johnson, for example, who is more vocal in the legalization of marijuana and openly supports gay marriage?
i don't see a problem with embracing elements of both republicanism and libertarianism. paul doesn't. jesus wasn't a pure republican, libertarian, or democrat for that matter, yet as Christians we tend to pigenhole our beliefs for the sake of viability. rick santorum, for example, is anti-abortion, but married a woman who was affiliated with an abortion doctor, and wouldn't hesitate to send soldiers off to battle to possibly face certain death. yet he is the conservative candidate who is the darling of evangelicals.
my choice of paul for president was not influenced by the media, in fact, most paul supporters are complaining about a media 'blackout' of paul. of the four remaining republican candidates, paul is the least likely choice of the mainstream media.
