    #3 Blacks have been voting for the Democrat candidate long before Obama! They voted for Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, and Bill Clinton. If Herman Cain (a black Republican) ran against Hilary Clinton; Hilary would carry the black vote. That's the truth!

    People generally don't care about things that do not directly affect them because they are too uninformed to know what directly affects them. Maybe when they discover laws like Ovomitcare do directly affect them they will become less gullible, maybe.

    Uh huh yes. Many American people see politicians as movie stars and saviors. It is sad that intelligent discernment has flow OUT the window! The American public needs to become more politically aware of all political angles re: elected officials!

    Correction - not "the electorate", about half the electorate. You know which half. :-)
