This year is the great and powerful presidential elections. This is when we finally get to 'voice our opinions' and 'make a difference'.
What we actually have is a rigged system where both sides are in it to win together. They win, we lose. I could go into detail as to why but I think
that the reader, with a little insight and the search function, can figure this out for themselves.
I look unto this board and all I see is 'Obama is a racist socialist' or 'McSame is a Bush clone'. These could be true (I frankly do not care if
they are or not) but this is completely missing the whole point of this board. The point is, they serve the same master.
I will say something about both candidates.
I respect McCain's service in the military, something I am doing currently. But I have no respect for what he has done since as a politician. He is
not on our side. His economic policy is trash, and will not cut government spending.
Obama is inexperienced. I say this as a good thing. He has had less time to be messed up by the system. The problem is, he is easily influenced, and
adopted the ways of the system quickly. He is the perfect stool pigeon for us to gawk at. He can speak volumes on a subject while not saying anything
substantial, and at the same time, we like it.
The 'Decision 2008' forum is a forum that I see having great promise. I see it as a forum where instead of deciding between Obama and McCain, it is
a place where people decide whether or not to be slaves to a Two party system, a system that has created more problems than solutions(both the Dems
and the Reps).
I urge the reader, do not vote for one of these candidates. I myself and voting "no confidence" as a write-in.
