A sign in one man's front yard has stirred up a controversy in his community.This "person" was quite content to be a Democrat and vote for the party ticket until a black man was running for president...that obviously is just too much for him to swallow. Nevermind that Bush has run our country into a hole and that electing McCain will only dig the hole deeper. Nevermind, that as a veteran he has been directly adversely affected by Bush's policies. No. The real outrage to him is that a black man dare run for the presidency.
I post this because I want everyone to realize that this man is not alone, there are quite a few people out there who feel exactly the same way. Some are not as vocal about it as this man, but share his views they do.
Because this man is not some strange abberration, I want us to push hard to get the vote out among the rest of the sane population. We will need every single vote we can get if Obama is to be president.
Let's not fall for the "cumbaya" trap. The everyone is color blind, how can anyone not love Barack kind of thinking is not going to work. We need to aggressively convert those who can be converted...and those like this "person" in the story aggressively try to make McCain/Palin so unpalatable to them that they will at least stay home. Do not worry about offending them...they would NEVER vote for Barack anyway. What we want from the bigots is for them to stay home and stew in their small minded juices. This will win the election for Barack/Biden.
Yes We Can!
