Good grief. The guy is making a political statement. People have been doing that since Day One - that is what this country was founded on!

Just b/c you don't happen to agree w/ his passion about how he feels about voting for Obama - it doesn't mean you need to get on a soap box and make this into something it isn't. The guy is vehemently against Obama for President. He put up a sign stating it. BIG DEAL

Get a life, people. I have seen A LOT WORSE STUFF on this forum! At least the guy w/ the sign has not picked out someone to insult directly!!!! But wow - how quickly others are labeling him!

And to say this has to do w/ race. What is it when people make all kinds of disparaging comments about Bush? If you say - anyone who voted for Bush is not welcome in my home - what does that make you? I guess if you are a person of color, that makes you racist?

Geeeezzz.

[Fixed ]

Pulling out the race card on this article is absolutely stretching.
Perhaps he just disagrees with a person with a socialist agenda who is a friend of a domestic terrorist?

Move along and park somewhere else...

A huge storm is brewing to a point that if Obama does not win 'Racism & Hate' will be the given reason.

Personally I do not care if someone is black, white, male, female, chinese, italian, hispanic, reptile, whatever. I will vote for the person who most represents what I believe in.

Maybe this guy never felt so strongly against any other candidate before.

You know what happens when you all "assume".....

That's all you're doing is assuming. You have no proof of racism. Put the card away and save it for when you really need it.

Exactly. I don't see the issue, except that evidently some people sit around just waiting to CREATE an issue.

This just illustrates how screwed up our country is. Why do people feel they need to bring race into any discussion (or free speech sign) that has to do w/ opposing Obama? You mean - all of us who are not enchanted w/ Obama have as our only reason that he is not white? How insulting and patently absurd!!!!

Let's see. Why did I not vote for Bill Clinton?

Why did I not vote for Kerry?

Why did I not vote for Gore?

Why did I not vote for Mondale?

Why did I not vote for Carter?

Why did I not vote for Humphrey?

Gosh. How perplexing! They are white! We can't use the race card!!!! It's a mystery!!!!!!

WOW your note is beyond comprehension

the race card, "when I need it"?

good lord, that's the most racist and xenophobic thing I've ever heard- continue to justify your racism by assuming that black people have to keep feelings repressed and speak up only, "when needed"- no right or reason to stick up for themselves regularly when whites continue to be hateful and derogatory

just more evidence that racism against BLACK or DARK skinned people by WHITE skin people is the #1 PROBLEM IN NOT ONLY THE US, but ALSO THE WORLD

I thought I missed something so I went back and looked again at the sign and the article and nope, I didn't see anything about racism, black, dark, skin color or white people at all. Did you read something different that you might be able to point to or is it just your racism that is being expressed. By the way, why not look up the definition of racism and then again look to see where you find a link.

I don't think the soros-democrat party cares about racism, they just like to use it as a tactic.
