    I don't think you read what Len said: he LIVED through the civil rights movement. I think he would know what he's talking about.

    I seriously hope you don't take this the wrong way, but by that statement, if you had been alive during the rise of the Nazi movement in Germany before WWII, you would have supported Hitler. He was a great public speaker, watch one of his speeches if you don't believe me. Charisma doesn't make good leaders. Remember that.

    People like you shouldn't be allowed to vote because you don't know how get all the facts to make an informed decision.

    Take me for instance, I'm a staunch Liberal Party supporter (Canadian Equivalent of the Democratic Party), but I'm voting Conservative (Equivalent of the Republican party) next federal election because, and while I hate to admit it, they're doing a better job at running the country. Our Economy is the strongest its been in 30 years, our government budgets are coming in with surplus, our national debt continues to fall year after year, and our sales tax just went from 7% to 6% to 5% in just 3 years because of it.

    Given the total time rift people are failing to notice here, let's mix the thread up a bit:

    How many of you would vote for Jesse Jackson if he ran for president (again)?

    Of course not. I don't care for his character.


    Nor would I have voted for King. The man may have been a great orator but other then that I see nothing to recommend him. It annoys me that he is given the martyr treatment when the true greats go unrecognized, greats such as Medgar Evers, because they don't have a foundation to make sure they get good publicity. The real question is if King had not been martyred would he be any different these days then Jesse Jackson and would the government continue to seal his FBI records for fear of damage to the civil rights movement or would whatever is in there just be one more scandal like all of Jacksons? Oh well, eventually the truth will out one way or another. It just may have to wait until anyone who was involved is dead.

    OK now Jesse Jackson would be a dumb vote. Jesse is a smart man, but not smart enough to run a country. Not to mention I sense a little racism towards whites from him. And I'm black myself lol. Jesse Jackson is like black peoples version of Dr. Phil. We all like him and to talk about him, yet we will never vote him into office.

    I have never heard about someone called Edger Mevans. Who is/was that?
