First of all, McCain says he doesn't even use the Internet. I truly don't think he has any idea of what sites like ATS are.
Second, McCain can't just do what you suggest he said. It would require an act of Congress, and if the polls are correct, the Democrats will control
both houses of Congress by a wide margin.
Third, it really doesn't matter which of the two are elected, because as many posters have pointed out on other threads, the corporations won't let
EITHER candidate stray very far from the corporate line.
Most of the issues which the MSM focus on, are never an issue that means very much anyway. The REAL issues are decided in corporate back rooms and
board meetings, then conveyed through their agents to the administration and congress. That's how "democracy" works here.
Most members are congress are concerned with their constituents' issues for about 2 to 3 months- the 2-3 months immediately before an election.
After that, they go back to doing whatever their real masters tell them to do.
If you don't believe me, take a look at the mailing you got from your representatives. You probably got some in the last month or two, or if not,
will get some before November. They'll tell you all they did for you (virtually nothing). After November, you won't hear from them again until just
before the next election.
Every presidential election, there is a great deal of fear mongering going on, by supporters of each candidate. Most of those things prove to be
outright lies, like the rumor that Obama will charge a "property tax" on homes greater than 2400 square feet. When I first saw that one, I laughed.
First of all, property taxes are LOCAL taxes, NEVER at the federal level. That one, as most others on both sides can easily to discredited. Some take
Anyway, vote, it's your duty. However, understand that the powers that be, never allow anyone to make it to the convention nomination, unless they
have hand-picked them.
I have no use for either candidate, but I still will vote- I'll write in my choice. At least I can sleep nights, knowing I didn't help elect one of
the two "chosen ones".
