Intrepid, let me share with you a Greek philosophy about politics. After all Greece invented democracy so they have a little head start on the rest
of US. It's a little dirty but I will try to dance around the naughty parts.
It goes something like this:
When you vote you're not choosing between a candidate who is going to sodomize you and a candidate who is not. You are going to sodomized either
way, you just vote to decide who you'd rather do it to you.
Hope I toned it down enough.
Now you may ask, "what does any of this have to do with me?"
Nothing really, I just wanted to tell the story.
Seriously, neither Obama or McCain are going to show up, deus ex machina, and save anybody. As per the above parable, it's always going to be a
lesser of two evils situation.
I always try to remember that expectations are the building blocks of disappointment.
