This is the question people keep asking. Several people have insisted that I vote for Barack Obama. Others have said it's all about Hilary Clinton. Just to mess with people, I look them straight in the eye, without cracking a smile and tell them I'm voting for Mike Huckabee and if not him then Mitt Romney. LOL. I'm so devious. You should see the looks on the faces of my liberal and leftist friends. Oh boy!
So who am I voting for? The truth is, I don't know. I have issues with each candidate. Let me lay it out for you:
Hillary Clinton: She's a snake. Not someone I'd trust at all. I know how much Black folks love the Clintons. We're some fools though. I wish everyone could read Randall Robinson's book called, The Debt: What America Owes to Blacks. He talks about the Clinton administration and how they undermined the growth of Black Americans and hurt the Caribbean's economic development as well. Yeah, no thanks.
Barack Obama: I'm sorry but this dude just is not doing it for me. I have to agree with the political analysts (and surprisingly Hillary Clinton) when they say that he doesn't have enough experience. I've watched a couple of the debates and he's done a poor job in my opinion. Some Black folks have pretty much told me I should vote for him because he's Black. Uh...no! Are we still operating of off such silly notions? C'mon people! Is brown skin the only requirement? Well, what about Clarence Thomas, he has brown skin...
John Edwards: Who? I'm just kidding. But seriously, I really do forget about him. He's boring. I found myself yawning as I was listening to him speak on "The Today Show" this morning. He's the same ole, dry, boring politician. You could substitute him with any White, male, democrat with a carefully coiffed hair cut. (And didn't he spend thousands of dollars on a haircut at one point?) YAWN! At least Obama and Clinton are interesting.
Mike Huckabee: Evangelical Christian, right wing, conservative. I don't need to say anymore. Says, Huckabee, "I will take our country back for those who belong here. No open borders, no amnesty, no sanctuary, no false Social Security numbers, no driver's licenses for illegals." Those who belong here? Hmm...we know who "they" think doesn't belong here...it at aint you my friend and it aint me. Why doesn't he just come out and say, "America is a White, Christian country. The rest of you don't belong here."
Mitt Romney, John McCain (i.e. George Bush), and Rudy Guliani:
This is my answer:
So, what am I left with? No independent candidate. And really no one that moves me. Let's just call it indecision 2008, shall we?
