No, we don't have choice.
We have different parties and lots of politicians to give us the illusion we have choice, but they're all working together on the same side anyway.

I put forth the argument that neither presents any "change" over the last 20 or so years of what we've had as a nation.
Sure, Obama wants health care for everyone and McCain wants to stay in Iraq for 10,000 years... but our country will still be the same exact USA that it was before either of them took office.
Whatever "change" is going to take place over the next few years will not be some renewal of the country, it will not be a significant change to the way things are now. Sure it'll be different, but no more different than white from wheat.
If I do vote this year, it'll probably be for Bob Barr.
