Hehe I love it, the sheep fighting amongst themselves.
The primitive clash of sides, as the issues lose importance to competition and who's side, already decided for you, will win. Billions of dollars change hands, and favours are promised for later. You chose your side, and make your vote under the illusion you/it counts, and cheer for the winner oblivious to the reality of what your vote really means.
Unrelenting obedience to a master who only keeps you around as long as you follow their rules, and follow the 'normal' life that has been slowly conditioned into society to make you easier to control and exploit.
The vote you cast just legitimises the system of devide and control. You give away your power, and resign your liberty, as you give them power over you and put them above the law.
It's not as if their game isn't blatantly obvious...
There is no authority but yourself.
The possession of power has a maddening influence; parliaments have always wrought unhappiness.
In ruling assemblies, in a fatal manner, the will prevails of those below the average, both morally and intellectually.
To vote is to prepare shameful treachery and traitors.
To put on others' shoulders the responsibility of one's actions is cowardice. Don't vote!Emma Goldman 1869-1940

Someone on the thread asked what 'change' does Obama represent - it's a break from the past. A letting go of out-dated ideas and rhetoric that have gotten this country nowhere in recent years.

I have said it before I am not an Obama supporter per say... I liked Edwards... but since it came down to the choice between him and Clinton... I chose Obama.
The thing that really bites my oh so ample butt is that the Obama bashers on here go from bordering on the obscene to the absurd.
Barack Obama has only gotten this far because the ruling elite, the status quo has determined that they have nothing to fear from him...
... They have also decided that they do not like Hillary Clinton but for some reason, probably bull headed egotism, she has not gotten the hint and the longer she holds out the slimmer her political future becomes.

Gen. Wesley Clarke would be a connection with both the south (Arkansas) and the military and with his foreign policy experience through his leadership of NATO he would again be a counter balance to Obama's lack of it.
No matter who is chosen as VP, they are going to be a power in and of themselves... a secondary or co-president as it were.

Eight years after choosing the "regular guy" over the smart guy and getting Iraq, deficits, Katrina, Rumsfeld and Cheney for it, you want to choose the "regular guy" over the smart girl. What the @$&* is wrong with you people?
