Don't Vote for the Black Man!

That's right, I said it. Don't vote for the black man! Oh yes, that's right, don't vote for the white man either! Confused? Don't be, there is a good reason for it. We're not voting for a skin color contest, we're voting for the man who we feel confidence in, who we will trust with our lives, for the next four years. Not everyone will be happy with the outcome but then again you can't please everyone. A Democracy means that the majority 'vote' rules. What happens when a candidate has a tie and (hypothetically) 1 vote held the key, and you didn't vote? It means you effected the majority and may have allowed the minority to win because more of them voted than your party did. To that I say "too bad for you" now live with it and don't complain. You lose the right to complain when you don't vote for anyone because you chose not to participate. The best way for the nation to unite and begin to heal is to get out and vote, participate, let your voice count! Don't vote for a candidate based on their color, that's an insult to us all, especially to the candidate. It's like saying you like red hair, so if Bozo the Clown ran for office he'd get your vote because he had red hair. Be Smart and Vote Smart, but mostly - VOTE!
ps. Did I mention that you voted for Bozo for Secretary of the Treasury?
