Racist Voters in Missouri???

A story appeared in the St. Louis Beacon about the possibility of voters in Missouri being racist because they refused to vote for Obama in the Presidential election. What a crock.

Are there still racists in America? Of course. But this goes both ways. I don’t accept the argument that if you’re not black and didn’t vote for the Democratic candidate, who just happened to be black, you’re a racist. Didn’t Obama receive around 90% of the black vote? Did all of those voters pull the lever for Obama because they like his policies or was that based soley on his race? I would opt for the later.

Personally, I really don’t care about these things. I’m much more concerned about what the candidate believes and will actually do for this country. I still believe that President -Elect Obama (still hard to say) is a Socialist. If he keeps all of his campaign promises, there is no way we will come out of our economic problems. I would really like it if we actually got some type of centrist Obama who governs near the middle instead of the far left ideas that he usually espouses. We’ll see.

Of course, that’s just my opinion
