    It's beyond me why anyone would vote for this corrupt jerk.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Most of his votes are in Harlem and Rangel brings in the entitlements.

    It's almost impossible for a challnger, in a majority minority district, to beat out the incumbant, because the only platform he has to run on is, "more free stuff from the government". The incumbant has already proven that he can bring home the bacon. Remember that saying about, "tried and true"?

    Well obviously it's because minorities are one dimensional voters. Are you Caine's sock puppet? Or were you raised by a pack of wild black people and rescued by white explorers from Selma?

    Well, it's not my fault that the Liberals have turned minorites into the welfare class.

    Well obviously, because before Liberals, blacks were the what? Part of the country's middle class? Why don't you apdst, knower of all things black before my time tell us how things were for black people before us Librulz decided to come and make them slaves to the horrible welfare system.

    Oh! Yeah! And the Liberals have done what for them exactly? Addicted a majority of them to welfare? brainwashed most of them into thinking that they should sit back and wait for the big pay off?

    Do you know why two white progressives and one white socialist created the NAACP? It was because they believed that black folks were too stupid to make it, without the help of white do-gooders.

    I'm guessing you've never heard of the, "too prouds", the black Americans that were too proud to take government welfare. good thing for the Liberals that their numbers were stamped out. Just think of all those votes that wouldn't be cast for the Liberal Democrats.

    In all honesty, it's not like voting for the other guy would have made much a difference. Rangel has held his seat since 1970. He won that seat by running on a platform of reform, pledging to clean up the massive corruption of his predecessor. His predecessor had held his seat since 1944 and had the dubious honor of being the first person removed from his seat by Congress. His predecessor? Adam Clayton Powell Jr. The runner up to Rangel yesterday? Adam Clayton Powell IV.

    There's no doubt in my mind that had Powell won, he would have spend the next 25 years winning reelection by 40 point margins and becoming just as corrupt as his father or Rangel.
