I just don't get or understand the people in this country and how they think that Barack Obama is an Arab or Muslim. John McCain was right to take the microphone from the women who was ignorant and asked the question last Friday.
I just want to say that I am supporting John McCain because he is the candidate that falls within my beliefs and I feel that he is best to lead this country at this time.
It is not because I think Obama is a Muslim or terrorist like others believe. I just think some of his policies will cause the deficit to grow a lot more than it is and that he does not have the leadership experience to do the job. He has also made some bad decisions to associate and listen to the wrong people over time.
Obama is a wonderful family man and father. He is a Christian. No where close to the Arab or Muslim that people are scared of just because of his name.
And what would be the problem if he was an Arab or Muslim? Is that a problem? I don't believe so.
I have met and associated with many people who are arabs, muslims, etc. In fact, for all you doubters out there, there are Arab-Christians in this world.
There are many wonderful people in this world who are Muslim. They are nice, decent, and religious people. The problem is a few people who perpetuate to follow the Koran, but actually don't understand its teachings. They are a small, radical fringe.
The United States of America is one of the world leaders and we need to vote in the best person to do the job. That is why I am voting for John McCain. I think he can do it.
But if Obama wins, he is our President and I will support him in that role.
This country has come a long way over the last 30-40 years. But it still has a long way to go. We need to move beyond someones skin color, religion, ethnicity, etc. The ignorance needs to end and it ends now.
This ignorance just makes the entire country look stupid to the rest of the world. I just don't see how it is still around in this wonderful country. It was not the way I was brought up.
