  •  This election particularly scares (22+ / 0-)

    me, not because of the possibility of Republican fraud, which we have with us every 4 years, but because of the virulent, open race hatred out there. We are dealing, primarily, with people who lived through the Civil Rights movement, but who never did make their peace with it. These are people who look at crime and blight in minority neighborhoods, and other social inequity, as "evidence" of the superiority of the white race.

        you just specified, were hated, and targeted, in previous elections. The race hatred is especially vehement this time around because of our BLACK president. (Didn't say "African-American," because this is a controversial designation to apply to Obama in some peoples' minds.)
