    In election 2008, don’t forget Angry White Man

    There is a great amount of interest in this year’s presidential elections, as everybody seems to recognize that our next president has to be a lot better than George Bush. The Democrats are riding high with two groundbreaking candidates — a woman and an African-American — while the conservative Republicans are in a quandary about their party’s nod to a quasi-liberal maverick, John McCain.

    Each candidate is carefully pandering to a smorgasbord of special-interest groups, ranging from gay, lesbian and transgender people to children of illegal immigrants to working mothers to evangelical Christians.

    There is one group no one has recognized, and it is the group that will decide the election: the Angry White Man. The Angry White Man comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America, from urban sophisticate to rural redneck, deep South to mountain West, left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.

    His common traits are that he isn’t looking for anything from anyone — just the promise to be able to make his own way on a level playing field. In many cases, he is an independent businessman and employs several people. He pays more than his share of taxes and works hard.

    The victimhood syndrome buzzwords — “disenfranchised,” “marginalized” and “voiceless” — don’t resonate with him. “Press ‘one’ for English” is a curse-word to him. He’s used to picking up the tab, whether it’s the company Christmas party, three sets of braces, three college educations or a beautiful wedding.

    He believes the Constitution is to be interpreted literally, not as a “living document” open to the whims and vagaries of a panel of judges who have never worked an honest day in their lives.

    The Angry White Man owns firearms, and he’s willing to pick up a gun to defend his home and his country. He is willing to lay down his life to defend the freedom and safety of others, and the thought of killing someone who needs killing really doesn’t bother him.

    The Angry White Man is not a metrosexual, a homosexual or a victim. Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina — he got his people together and got the hell out, then went back in to rescue those too helpless and stupid to help themselves, often as a police officer, a National Guard soldier or a volunteer firefighter.

    His last name and religion don’t matter. His background might be Italian, English, Polish, German, Slavic, Irish, or Russian, and he might have Cherokee, Mexican, or Puerto Rican mixed in, but he considers himself a white American.

    He’s a man’s man, the kind of guy who likes to play poker, watch football, hunt white-tailed deer, call turkeys, play golf, spend a few bucks at a strip club once in a blue moon, change his own oil and build things. He coaches baseball, soccer and football teams and doesn’t ask for a penny. He’s the kind of guy who can put an addition on his house with a couple of friends, drill an oil well, weld a new bumper for his truck, design a factory and publish books. He can fill a train with 100,000 tons of coal and get it to the power plant on time so that you keep the lights on and never know what it took to flip that light switch.

    Women either love him or hate him, but they know he’s a man, not a dishrag. If they’re looking for someone to walk all over, they’ve got the wrong guy. He stands up straight, opens doors for women and says “Yes, sir” and “No, ma’am.”

    He might be a Republican and he might be a Democrat; he might be a Libertarian or a Green. He knows that his wife is more emotional than rational, and he guides the family in a rational manner.

    He’s not a racist, but he is annoyed and disappointed when people of certain backgrounds exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their race. He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they work hard, play by the rules and learn English.

    Most important, the Angry White Man is pissed off. When his job site becomes flooded with illegal workers who don’t pay taxes and his wages drop like a stone, he gets righteously angry. When his job gets shipped overseas, and he has to speak to some incomprehensible idiot in India for tech support, he simmers. When Al Sharpton comes on TV, leading some rally for reparations for slavery or some such nonsense, he bites his tongue and he remembers. When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement.

    He also votes, and the Angry White Man loathes Hillary Clinton. Her voice reminds him of a shovel scraping a rock. He recoils at the mere sight of her on television. Her very image disgusts him, and he cannot fathom why anyone would want her as their leader. It’s not that she is a woman. It’s that she is who she is. It’s the liberal victim groups she panders to, the “poor me” attitude that she represents, her inability to give a straight answer to an honest question, his tax dollars that she wants to give to people who refuse to do anything for themselves.

    There are many millions of Angry White Men. Four million Angry White Men are members of the National Rifle Association, and all of them will vote against Hillary Clinton, just as the great majority of them voted for George Bush.

    He hopes that she will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2008, and he will make sure that she gets beaten like a drum.

    Interesting piece of work. You had me all the way and wondering where and when the sales pitch if any at all would appear like a bad punch line would rear it's ugly head. I will say it like I do to the folks that knock on my door and try to get me to change my religion to there's because they think they have a better one.

    I simply tell them that if your religion is better than mine then why do you have to go door to door to tell people. Word of mouth about any good product will get around without anyone banging on my door. So simply what you are saying by posting this is that we are not intelligent enough to form our own opinions and you will guide us through the election process. I'm not a big fan of any of the top three and will try to make a choice as to the intellect of the person not the like or dislike of their mugs.

    In fact your post smacks of racism to the point if you could trace it back David Duke probably was it's author.

        This US pre-election campaigns have been a source of interest for us aussies as we see the massive differences and the ease of manipulation of your voting structure. The $$$ spent behind the campaigns is incredible with round 2 to go shortly with the completion of Uncle GW's 2nd term.

        President Clinton and her husband Bill were a unique team ........ for 8 years an unlike previous teams were last line of those with charisma. Either way, there will be some big changes going ahead in 2009.

          I have been voting since 1972. I have never, never, never missed voting in any election. That includes Presidential, United States Congress and United States Senate elections. Governors in Massachusetts, and Texas. City and Town elections. School board elections. Ballot Questions. I have voted in snow storms, 100 degree heat, and days when I had a raging fever
          I give quietly to my political party. My car is not pasted with bumper stickers
          of the person I am voting for. You call me at home from some news source
          asking whom I am voting for, I will slam the phone down on the receiver It is none of your damn business. In 2008 I will vote. If I die I will come out of the grave and vote.

          In World War Two I had two Uncles who were killed defending my right to
          vote, and I will make them proud of me in 2008.

            I totally understand that and I'm not sticking up for her but my point is why? If you have a better product it will sell it self. As a disabled Nam vet it's not hard to tell where my vote will go and at the same time never felt that I have to put down the others. I find it interesting to look who's standing in the row behind the candidate. Are they new fresh faces or old tired faces that have more than had their chance to make things better?

              They were unique, all right.

              Thank God there was a Republican Congress there to stop Billary dead in their tracks and who were actually the ones who forged the much-touted "Clinton" economic boom. (In fact, the economy had started it's upswing before Bill even took office. Presidents actually have ZERO influence on the economy.)

              Well, we can't help fixing what ain't broke, so I guess we'll hand it off to the Democrats now and have some fun watching them screwing things up. In fact, they've already started to screw things up. So far, the Democrat Congress has been a total disaster, with a capital T, even as reported by the liberal press. That's why Congress now has a public opinion rating that's even lower than Bush (whose "terrible" administration has kept us free from attacks since 9/11, but pay no attention to that!!).

              The thought of Bill Clinton waggling his wienie around the White House again gives a lot of us the shivers. If Hillary's the Dem candidate, it's a pretty fair bet she won't be elected.

                If you have read my comments at other postings, you are well aware that I have zero trust in what the news media has to say.

                I keep hearing the youth are rallying behind Obama? Oh really NBC-ABC-CBS-CNN-MSNBC-FOX!!
                I have asked my daugther's and my son's friends when they visit
                at our home, in casual conversation whom they will be voting for
                in the fall. Majoity have said McCain. They might not agree with him
                on some of his social issues. But McCain they say is the person
                who they want as Commander-In-Chief if we ever have another 9/11/

                Most of my daugthers' and son's friends are working stiffs. Solders at an electronic company.
                Car mechanics at Midas Muffler. Working as a dishwasher at a restuarant. Stocking shelves at
                Best Buy. and Good Lord one of them is even a Security Guard with Securitas.

                And I agree. I too look who's standing in the row behind the candidate.

                  "Billary" - Sec your posts are imformative but that title takes the cake.

                  Yeah we had alot about the US elections and how different they are run from our secret ballot system here. But I do like how when your vote is posted its automatically accounted for.

                  Either way it is scarey when we come down to pick our next leader for 4 years and voting is compulsory here as I think I have signed off on about 500 unable to vote cards .............. fine is about $100 US usually.

                    Can anyone here honestly say that they do not back the party of their parents or that they are a different religion than their parents. My point is that if you spend your whole life hearing only 1 side of any issue then how can you vote not knowing or listening of the other side. Elections are not a beauty pageant our country if ever needs intelligent decisions made. IMO I wish the govt had an ctrl, alt, delete key and a clean reinstall disk. It doesn't mater who you vote for just use your brain instead of who your parents would have voted for when life in America was a lot simpler. Below is just the latest piece of crap in my in box and may be why I was a little miffed with the E-Mail that Minneapolis Security posted.


                    Ku Klux Klan Endorses Obama
                    February 7th, 2008
                    by James R. Crowe


                    Anything or anyone is better than Hillary Rodham Clinton

                    KENTUCKY - USA - Imperial Wizard, Ronald Edwards has stated that, "anything is better than Hillary Clinton."

                    White Christian Supremacist group the Ku Klux Klan has endorsed Barack Obama to be the next President of the United States of America.

                    Speaking from his Kentucky office in Dawson Springs, the Imperial Wizard exclaimed that anything or anyone is better than having that "crazy ass bitch" as President.

                    This is the first time in Klan history that any member of the KKK has ever publicly supported an African American candidate for the presidency.

                    KKK lodges all over America have been gathering and holding rallies supporting the black presidential candidate.


                    KKK members in Tennessee rally against Hillary Clinton and support Barack Obama


                    Grand Turk Cletus Monroe has also been very vocal about the election and has donated thousands of dollars to Obama's election fund.

                    "The boy's gonna do it. My Klan group has donated up to $250,000 to the Obama fund. Anything is better than Hillary Clinton. Hell I'll even adopt a black kid from Africa before I vote for Hillary."

                    "A few years back we were lynching negroes. Now we're gonna vote for one to be president of the US of motherfu**ing A, damn it! Anyone or anything is better than Hillary Clinton - anything!!"

                    Placards for Barack Obama have been put up around the Klan's Headquarters and the KKK have announced a television ad campaign to support the African American candidate.

                      Actually yes, I can say I vote differently than my parents. They're much more liberal than I am.

                        I have voted Dem, Republican and Independent depending on the candidate and their ideas.

                        This year, the choice is gonna be REAL easy. Terrorism still dwarfs every other issue, folks (we Americans have a VERY short attention span).

                        Since I have absolutely no doubt Bin Laden and all his kind would vote Dem, I'll just vote the other way.

                            Growing up I listened to my parents talks about politics and Democrats and
                            Republicans. Not at anytime did they try to influence my beliefs.

                            But about the time I was 18 years old and stationed in the middle of
                            the Atlantic Ocean on a United States Naval Deystroyer, everything stated
                            to make sense what they said.

                            In the primary of 2008 in Massachusetts I voted for McCain, and my 86 year
                            old Mom voted for Romney

                            Only one other time did I not vote the same as my parents. They
                            voted for a different person for Sewer Commisioner.

                            Don't ask, in our City, they have someone in charge of Sewers.
