Is this election about taxes, or party and color?

To the Editor:

John McCain is saying that he won’t raise taxes right now, but if he wins the election, he will have to or poor Americans will keep being poor, and the rest of America will continue to work hard and pay for welfare because just about everybody will have to be on it.

It’s a no-win situation. At least Barack Obama is being up front and honest about what will have to take place in the next four years.

Face it, we’re so in debt and so broke in this country because of the war that George W. Bush started and the war that McCain wants to keep fighting. We’re building up Iraq right now for another Saddam Hussein to come along years from now and tear it all up again.

As a military spouse, I’m not willing to see our soldiers continue to fight a war that we will never win.

Wake up Americans. Give the black man a chance. When it all comes down to it, it won’t matter that Obama’s mother was white or that he went to Harvard. Some people will just not vote for him because of the color of his skin. Nobody’s talking about it, but after the last debate, it was mentioned. Racism in America is very real. There’s still a large percentage of whites who can not wrap their heads around the idea of a black man in the White House, except in the capacity as a cook, chauffer, butler, etc.

Wake up, America. Life has called you to make good sense, let’s put everything aside this year, and make the right choice. If you need to walk into a dark room in your house and look in the mirror, then do that because when it comes down to it, color has nothing to do with change.
