    When I see the complete utter lunacy and veiled racism demonstrated by this clown, I think the Founders were right to create the Electoral College.

    Imagine! Imagine! Someone who's mother was an atheist being POTUS! Oh the horrors!

    Why do they interview the most retarded people to represent republicans. There are more intelligent ones than that. Not all republicans are Bible thumpers or anti-same sex marriage.
    Just an observation.

    she is a freaking idiot! She has problems with Obama over his name???

    What about McCain cheating on both of his wives? What about his angry and temper? McCain is a fraqing pagan compared to Obama.

    Okay, I guess I'm going to have to be elitist on this, but totally honestly I do not believe someone as stupid as she should have the privilege of being allowed to vote. On voting day, she should just be made to stay home, and the only thing she should be allowed to open her yap for is to continue her obvious hobby of filling it with Twinkies, pork rinds, and beer.

    Granted but if you can find a clip, any clip that demonstrates the same level of pure inanity, I'd love for you to post it.

    We couldn't have an "intelligence" test so I guess something that removes direct election of the POTUS is the next best thing.
    The Founders must've thought, "they were idiots in the past, there are idiots today, there will be idiots in the future: how best to prevent them from destroying the Republic?"

    I could be wrong, but I don't think she appreciates the view point of others. If she did, she'd understand that her religion is not for everyone. Or that she is being oppressive...

    "He knows what the right decision is."

    That statement, her expressions, and just her manner in expressing her opinion is mind-boggling.

    It's sad that her faith, which has helped her find meaning and purpose in her life, has also closed her heart to seeing the faith of another person as equally valid and meaningful. I'll pray for the clarity to continue seeing the heartache and goodness in those like Tracy.

    I'm more afraid that her eyes will pop out of their sockets. icon_eek.gif

    But seriously like Abe13 said, they should stop interviewing like that woman. They're not helping McCain's cause.

    There are days when I find it very difficult to be tolerant of the religious. Thankfully I know a few people of faith who are excellent human beings. This lady... spike in the head.

    From what I've learned, the Founding Fathers had a form of prevention in place to prevent voting by those they deemed as having less of a stake in America's future: only those who actually owned property were allowed to vote. The indigent, renters, those who were vagabonds, and others who did not actually OWN land were not allowed to vote.
    I'm not sure if that's the best way to go, but considering that you need a license for some of the simplest things, why shouldn't there be some form of accountability to prove that a person has been effectively educated in public debate, critical thinking, reasoning skills, and at least a year of intensive schooling on the history of America, her growth, her laws, and world society today?

    It sounds as though people like this woman were avoiding social ctudies and history classes in high school in favor of either smoking cigarettes on the corner or taking Home Ec class. Either that, or they were allowed to pass by simply regurgitating information rather than actually absorbing it and learning from it.

    You can clearly see that she has absolutely NO critical thinking or reasoning skills. As a result, I don't think she deserves a say in our country's future, because her "say" will be very harmful to many other people.

    I don't mean to be elitist, but from even as far back as my teenage years, I always felt that we should vote with brains and reason, and not just emotion and flawed opinion.

    As far as I'm concerned, the more the country sees the ignorant side of the GOP, the better.

    (Edit: The more the country sees the most ignorant of Obama haters and assumes they're GOP, the better.)

    It sounds as though people like this woman were cutting social ctudies and history classes. Either that, or they were allowed to pass by simply regurgitating information rather than actually absorbing it and learning from it.

    Odd that renters or homeless people or women or slaves would have been thought to have "no stake" in America as utterly dependent as the white, male, land-owning class was.

    The problem I have using the educational system as a benchmark is the assumption that the education system is designed to create all those produced by it to have critical thinking skills. It isn't. Some people get those skills, some don't.

    Everyone should be able to vote. Everyone. Even profoundly stupid zealots and sweet ass homosexuals. Everyone. Her choice is not less legitimate because it is less reasoned. If reason was the sole determinant of legitimacy we wouldn't even have a GOP (I kid, I kid).

    She said she was republican?

    hmm, all I heard her say was 'I vote for "the person has the most faith in the Lord" - her husbands voting Democrat.

    Idiots come in all shapes, sizes and party affiliations...
    And day-um, she could turn a straight man gay!

    I'm going to be even more "elitist" than any above, about the ignorant voting public.. If you take a look at the Blue states (democratic leaning) you will find that their populations are more educated. If you narrow the subject of democratic Leaning/blue areas of states you will again find its separation is magnified by educated areas/college towns/technology centers. Take my state of Virginia, the eastern portion of the state where the big college towns are, and the bigger population centers where better employment/technology centers are will be the areas that will carry our state for Obama (he is right at 11% ahead now in the polls. At the more rural areas of the state where I live, the ignorance on political issues is totally rediculous. FOX News/Rush/Hannity followers are 10 to one, one of these types told me the other day that "Obama would just as soon through all the babies in the road ditches", another recently stated that "if Obama got in we would all have to buy several guns per household because the Islamists would take over, and they would kill all who wouldn't convert" They hang on to these beliefs regardless of facts. These types scare me to death !!!! Fortunately for the rest of us the more educated areas of the country are more populated and can out vote the uneducated /ignorant "BIBLE BELT" areas of the country. OK, the conservatives may now start throwing their Knives !!!

    If you wed yourself to a particular dogma you only perpetuate the ignorance you claim to detest.
