This is not steering this thread off topic...bear with me.
I think the creators of south park have some sort of crystal ball that peers into the future. I believe they created
based off of the 2008 election.
honestly - in my opinion, neither candidate is inspirational what so ever.
They both attack each other on scrupulous human traits (too old, too young, not black enough, too white)
Though there are those who would argue
in the very beginning of Obama's campaign run, i truely was inspired by him. It was a sort of "its about time" for me. I am not black, im white,
not that it matters, but you just in case you were wondering.
Obama had my respect and vote, until the speech he gave about Racial divides in america. Because in my opinon, its just regurgitation to the mindless
yammering i've seen time and time again on youtube. But, thats just me.
McCain is another Tim "The Toolman" Taylor who's just interested in the job so he can play with cool guns and drive in fancy cars. I see nothing
from McCain. I respect his service to this country, but IMO that fact doesnt solely qualify him for running this country.
Right now - our choices are a man who refuses to show respect
during the national anthem
and a man who falsley promises hope, but really offers the same crap we've put up with for the last 8 years.
But what are our choices?
We dont have any. This is about as bad as it can get in terms of viable candidates. We can only hold on for the ride, and hope things get better.
Because no matter who's elected, things will either:
stay the same
or get better
But i'd like to see more posts that debate the issues we face as a nation
and less attacks on the candidates individual personal traits
how would you like it if someone said "you cant be president because...you are not black enough or you are too old"
mindless clammering IMO
