MCC Democrats Demonstrate

Student Democrats at Meridian Community College showed their support for Sen. Barack Obama Friday afternoon.

Several young people help up Obama-Biden campaign signs at the corner of 8th Street and Highway 11.

One participant said they want others to know they favor the Democratic nominee's plans for the economy, energy policy and more jobs.

"I just want to say, it doesn't matter who you vote for. Just go out and vote. Me personally, I'm voting for Obama. Nov. 4, go out and vote or don't do nothing at all. I'm just playing. Go vote," said MCC student Jheremy Gathright with a grin.

Obama is opposed by Republican nominee, Sen. John McCain. There are also five other parties listed on the Nov. 4 Mississippi ballot.

    What racism are you talking about? Kay was simply saying that she doesn't think Obama will be able to do the things he said he would and that she thinks our Second Amendment rights will be infringed. Democrats typically want gun control. How is that racism? And if 'gun control' does happen, it will only be the honest people who have them for hunting or protection or because they like to collect guns that will have their rights taken away. The thugs Kay was talking about are criminals, period. She was not talking about black people and what makes you think she was?! It is not racism to criticize Obama. A black president or senator may be criticized for his or her failures and bad decisions, just as Pres. Bush has been criticized. If Mr. Obama does win, you will see this happen to him. It comes with the territory, because everybody has 20/20 hindsight. But presidents have to make decisions on the front end. Sen. Obama would have his good moments and bad moments, just like anyone else.

    I'M SO SICK OF THESE RACIST COMMENTS. OBAMA MAY NOT BE ABLE TO FIX ALL THE PROBLEMS LEFT FROM THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION BUT WHY NOT GIVE HIM A CHANCE, AS FAR AS THUGS HAVING GUNS THEY ARE NOT THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT HAVE GUNS. IF YOU WANT TO STATE FACTS IT'S OBVIOUS WITH MOST OF THE SERIOUS KILLINGS IT'S PEOPLE OF ANOTHER RACE WHO GO ON KILLING SPREES AT SCHOOLS AND MALLS. ENOUGH WITH THE RACE CARD. WEDNESDAY WILL BE A NEW DAY AND HISTORY WILL BE MADE WETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT!

    That is the worse thing that I have ever lied eyes on. I can't wait for everyone to see that Obama will not be able to do anything more than the Republicans but take our guns. The bad part is that the thugs will still have possession of firearms.
