Ask President Barack Obama about his religious affiliation, and he's a Christian. Ask Mississippi or Alabama voters, and you might find a different answer.
In the midst of tight GOP primaries in both states, Public Policy Polling (PPP) has released information showing that a majority of likely GOP primary voters in the Deep South do not see Obama as a Christian. PPP's Alabama survey of 600 likely GOP primary voters found that only 14 percent consider Obama a Christian, while 45 percent said he is a Muslim and 41 percent answered that they were not sure.
A similar picture surfaced in Mississippi. Of 656 likely GOP primary voters surveyed, 12 percent said Obama was a Christian, 52 percent classified him as a Muslim, and 36 percent fell in the "not sure" category.
How do states like Alabama and Mississippi function? I mean 36% "not sure" of what your presidents religion is? What the fuck?
The scary part is if the poll asked about actual issues the answers would probably be even more damning. And the scariest part of these numbers is that these people will vote solely based on the fact that they think Obama is an evil Muslim because his name is like Osama.
Here is my open letter to Mississippi and Alabama:
Dear Mississippi and Alabama voters,
The civil war is over and has been for over 100 years, and you lost. Black people are free and smarter than you. Our president is one of them and it's okay because he is smart. He is also a Christian even though his name sounds like a very infamous Muslim. Oh and also the president last elected left the current one holding a bag of shit and stop denying it.
And by the way the leading candidate from your party is a *gasp* Mormon! That's right, they followed a con-artist into the desert after being run out of countless towns across the country. And what's even more shocking is that their religion resembles your own. Joseph Smith had golden tablets with a fake language on them, and Moses went up a mountain and inscribed a tablet with some rules that god told him. Seem similar? They are.
So go ahead and vote with Jesus or whatever you are going to do but if your candidate beats Obama, then you get no financial support for the government. Wait what, you are both in the top five for poverty rates as of 2011? Sorry no government support for you. Wait, you voted for the guys who want to end the "welfare state" in America? Can't you just pull yourself up by your bootstraps, I thought that was pure Amurica? I mean taxes are the devil right? So if you don't want taxes then you don't get:
- fire department
just to name a few.
So don't be silly Alabamans and Mississippians, vote for a candidate based on their policy, not your crackpot "he's a damn secret Muslim shit", it really just makes the whole country look bad.
