This is an election year one that is being touted as making or breaking the Administration of President Obama. That is the stance of the media in all elections, so what else is new? This week we will take a stroll back to Politics in America, and its affect on our community. My stance is to get out and vote and hold politicans accountable. It does not look like the system is going to change any time soon, and we should be in it to win it!! Whether your candidate wins or loses, is not the issue. Whoever wins is supposed to represent you, and if they do not, then show up at their headquarters, office, or front door (Hello). This show will open your eyes to what is really going on with Politics and elections. For instance, there President Obama, is not the first black President. Although Lincoln is identified as a white man, he is believed to be Melungeon (mixed raced). During reconstruction their were black Senators in Louisiana and South Carolina. Tune in and Listen Up!
