I follow this stuff closer than I should. Being a Canadian, with our own Federal election coming up right away, I should be more concerned with that
The thing is, my news here is flooded with US related stuff. I have no choice but to watch. But it's entertaining! Our elections suck. There is no
entertainment in them. The candidates suck too. I am a pretty devoute conservative, but I don't like our leaders at present. Retards as far as I'm
concerned. I'd vote NDP just to stick it in the face of the Tories right now, but unfortunately the NDP has a nasty history of turning everything
they touch into feces. So, I'll just vote for my conservative MLA and be content.
Now for US elections, I can't help but reflect on the past eternity... er... 8 years of Republican domination. McCain doesn't veer to far off the
path that the party has been following since the few months proceeding 9/11. He won't change things enough to fix them. He doesn't seem to see that
things are broken and need fixing.
Sure, both Obama and McCain preech "Change" but I'm more interested in what they want to fix. Things like citizens and the worlds confidence and
respect. To fix that, they need to identify all of the underlying causes of what has lead to the loss of this confidence and respect. This would be
policies and actions. How are they going to re-write these policies and atone for their actions.
This is where I should say "Obama for Pres!" But, alas, he doesn't strike me as a confident, decision maker. So should I say "McCain for Pres!"?
No, I can't do that either. He, unfortunately is a confident decision maker, but he has already made up his mind, and his mind is telling him to
"Stay the Course" straight into the abyss.
I would have liked to have seen Hilary take the presidential nomination. I truly believe that she could have turned that operation around for the
better. The US people and the world, I believe, would have imediately felt the effects of her decision making for the betterment of the establishment
"for the people".
I dunno. Stupid Canadian. And Stephan Dion is a loser.
