      Nobody cares John. No one ever has. In this country and every other throughout the past.
      Voters will continue to vote for evil corrupt leaders.
      The earth will continue to be destroyed. It's the way of man.

    I agree with u. South Patersonians will vote because of Muslim religion 97%, Hispanics 70% will vote for Hispanic just because, and blacks 97% will vote for black candidate no matter what the pros and cons were. Obama had no track record, never ran anything but yet 97% of blacks voted for him simply because it's the ting to do. Me being Hispanic vote for whoever I think is best, no matter what color they are. I am an American First policy guy. Too many in this country need help and.guidance first before we send billions throughout the world and especially to nations that litterally hate us or.dont stand with us.
