I can only watch for so long as these puppets sit and pander to the absurd questions given to them before I want to rip the hairs from my head and ask
myself why I'd want any of these people in any sort of control.
Questions over the candidates religion, relationships with aquaintences, and stance on what SHOULD be state laws show that the people watching these
programs only want entertainment.
Sadly folks, this is not survivor island, this is control of the free (or not so free) world. I know you all love to bring up abortion, gay marriage,
stem cell research, etc., but when you do, you bring the fed closer and closer to your homefront. State laws are important, they help us decide where
we want to live. Don't agree with gay marriage? Move to a state where it isn't allowed! Viola!
On the left side you have Obama. This guy is one big scene out of independence say. He is all theatrics. Honestly, I find this to be somewhat
refreshing, because I could agree with some things Bill Clinton did, because he was a good talker. I like when my president can sweet talk another
country.. It gets us out of trouble. Outside of this though, Obama REALLY is just another talking head with little to back up. There's only so many
people you can make happy before you piss a few off!
On the right side, McCain. I really don't know why he's even given attention. Does this guy even know what his stance is any given day?
I find myself to be conservative for the most part, in THE ORIGINAL sense of the word. I believe in small gov, and that's my one and only platform.
No one other than Paul even gave that a chance, and he's long gone, whether he wants to admit it or not. I also believe in tight border control, I'm
pro-choice, pro getting troops out of Iraq yesterday, pro gay rights, and pro freemarket. But these just seem common sense to me, no?
Now on to why I am boycotting elections. It truly no longer matters. The MSM controls enough of the population to make a decision for us. The
electoral college takes any direct voting process away from us. Lets be honest, if all of our votes would be worth the same, we never would have dealt
with GW. Are we diluted enough to think we play a part at all?
So when the population sits down tonight in front of CNN, FOX, ABC, NBS, etc., and keeps talking about Reverend Wright, Al-Qaeda, and Global Warming,
we with some semblance of a free will shall drop to our knees and find ourselves in a depression, an oil crisis, a world war, or even worse.
So keep watching your political reality TV. I will shun my right to vote if only to show my disdain for supporting a ruined system.
Get our troops back, get rid of the fed, work on amnesty and then CLOSE borders, and find this holy grail of energy... If anyone makes any of these a
big deal to their policy, I will come out of hiding. Until then, I prefer to get my news from Colbert and Stewart. At least then I don't have to feel
bad about laughing at this distopia.
My main point, if your candidates religion or personal history has anything to do with your vote, you may find yourself voting for more of the same.
