All politicians have them
You can't go to a car dealership and buy a collectors edition corvette
then get mad at your car because you cant cram a mattress in the trunk.
A politician is the same way.
It doesnt matter which side of the election you're on.
Both candidates lie to get ahead.
But what you have to do (IMO) is figure out which candidates' lies are in your best interest.
Obama or McCain?
For me, and apparently a lot of other people the choice is clear - Obama.
Until something drastic happens (if ever) to change my opinion, it shall stay here
It is our fault we can't "all" agree on the most practical car to buy for "our" family. If we could, I bet we could get a decent sized mattress to fit too.
But, I also want to add that the "dealership" is telling "our" family what kind of car "they" want to sell us. (the media is the dealership or salesperson)
(the mattress represents our common goals "serenity" "peace" "able to get a decents night sleep knowing that we have a roof over our head and enough financial security to pay our bills and have something left over)
(The family represents our citizens.) (the car is the candidate)
The salesman doesn't want us to buy a truck or van (Ron Paul maybe) they want us to buy the impractical corvette because that is where they get their big commission from the"Rupert Murdoch's"
......sorry but that was a fun metaphor to play with...sorry for highjacking the idea.
I use to own a "Bush" car...for almost 8 years and it was nothing but a lemon. Why would I risk buying another one by the same company.
I think I will try an "Obama" since I'm down to an either or choice.
