    I have  been informed by various republicans that the country will be socialist now; that our dollar is soon to be completely worthless; that white people will never be allowed to vote again; that it is impossible to win against the moochers who outnumber the working class.  I have been informed Obamacare will result in us having no doctors.  
    The lies continue, and if anything, the more outrageous they are, the more fervently they are believed.
    Let the "white people will never be allowed to vote again" sort of sink in.  The gentleman who said that to me is college educated, and has lived and worked all over the world.  I could hardly catch my breath.

      being unable to vote before the 60's, and their votes being suppressed until the present time?

      Is he so threatened by fairness, and so scared of retribution?

        a legal matter, and he just took off on this crazy rant.  I was giving him legal advice, then all at once, it just turned.  I did not argue with him, or do anything to keep the rant going.  I just said I thought the country would be just fine even if whites were a minority.

      I work with some people like that, completely irrational in their hatred.
      They become very condescendent in explaining how fast we are going to slide down the grease pole to hell.  By their standards we should be half way there, but we're not.  Useless to point that out.  Why bother with something as silly as facts?

      let these fear-controlled white people believe they'll not be allowed to vote again.  The world can do without their vote.  Let the minorities control the vote and undo the evil done by Caucasian-kind over the past few thousand years.  Our turn is finished, it's their turn now.
