How come on every every article someone has to say that or refer to race? Come on really? If i were to choose out of the 3 OnToday has the right idea I think Stephanie Lindsey takes the cake. Light it up actually here is a better idea let all 3 light it together. That would make the county very happy. What do you think?

Because that word (race) is used all the time to get ones way, really, and that is pitiful. To be truthful all three of these would be a terrible choice. We should let a hard working Republican-American light it, like Keith Ellis.

If we select a demotard to flip the switch that person will need some help from the government so the switch will be turned the right way.
