The cult of politics.

Burnt out from the election yet? Will you be glad when it's finally over?
Me too.
We still have a little bit left to go though, but we have to remain strong. We can't allow ourselves to fall into this thing of where we hate the other guy so much that we believe the lies and deceit that are whispered down from other people.

Did you know Obama's a terrorist?
Did you know Palin is forcing her daughter to get married?

I don't care about that shit. I care about some of the bills Obama voted on and I care about Palin's abuse of power in Alaska. I care about John McCain's age and his mental capacity (Because that can slip away real fast, trust me, I've seen it happen in a man I respected and loved with all of my heart, and I still do) and I worry about Joe Biden making an ass out of himself YET AGAIN in front of...... people...... with eyes...... and who can hear as well as see.

I'm not thrilled with our choices. There are other people to vote for, sure, but it's like jerking off, YOU feel good after wards, but it does nothing for anybody else. So third parties are a distant hope, but let's face it, the political structure of America is centered around money. Gotta spend it to campaign otherwise nobody will know your message. Is this any surprise though?

And speaking of money? How's your 401k? Looking like shit, isn't it? And isn't it just a touch of socialism for the government to be buying into banks? They say they're going to have a minimal role in that, and I call bullshit. this coming from the same jerk-offs that suspended habias corpus, and allowed warrant less wiretapping on their own citizens.

Fuck that.

This whole thing reeks of conspiracy, and that's all I'm going to say.

The next president has to untie this knot, and it isn't as simple as cutting it in half. the next president has to make all of the right decisions and cannot make seconded guesses. They have to make their policies work. So vote for the one who's policy look like a good idea. Who's idea is that? I don't know, I'm not being paid by either one the candidates to fully endorse them. I know Who I'm voting for though. Barak Obama and Joe Biden, here's why:
Because they're not Republican.

I know, it's a stupid thing to say, but I don't have much faith in the republican party these days. There are examples on top of examples of foolish and ignorant behavior on both the behalf of the candidates and their supporters. I'm supposed to feel good about this? This is supposed to win me over? 8 years of failed Bush policies.... REPUBLICAN policies, and this is the best they can do? I'm not convinced.

No, they've made their case to me and I have listened. I listened and I was not moved or inspired to make their point of view my own. I understand it, but it is not what I believe and I should not be made to believe it. I'm not trying to paint all Republicans with the same brush as there are people I know and love dearly who are republican. But in this, their opinion differs from mine and I think they are wrong.

I'm not full blooded Democrat either. There's plenty of Democrats out there that don't make me too happy because they're corrupt assholes as well. Nancy Pelosi lied to us about impeaching Bush if the Dems took the house 2 years ago. Bush should stand trial for some of the things he's done in office. Like what? Ask Vincent Bugliosi, he will tell you.

This is the first time I have felt so passionately about an election. It's sad because I'm voting for a guy that doesn't really impress me and considering I'm making a choice for the person to lead our nation, that's pretty sad. But, I'd rather he lead us than his opponent who I like even less. The thought of McCain dying in office and leaving Sarah Palin as president terrorizes me because she acts like some podunk hick who doesn't know shit from shoe-shine. I don't like her Hockey-mom attitude and I don't like her deceptive behavior.

She being one old mans heartbeat away from ruling this nation is enough to wake me up in the middle of the night. She doesn't have the spirit of the lord in her, she only has her own self interest. Her religiousness is just a crutch and an excuse for intolerance and xenophobia.

Personally, I don't believe Religion and Politics should EVER mix. You know what you get? Jihad.

Look, come election day, you are all going to vote for the person you want and my opinion shouldn't impact your decision. Vote for whoever you want. If you vote for McCain though, don't tell me, I'll be sad.
