I am going to vote now where I was not going to vote before. (If I did McCain was my choice)
But wasn't 100% satisfied
I can understand where in terms of war ending and in terms of What Bush did and for no damn good reason at all and the economy
McCain doesn't offer much
But I also understand that Obama doesn't offer anything either and worse, I think his whole "Change" is exactly what we don't need
Because, Reality check...the debt wil take forever to clean out, we have passed peak oil, there is a major conflict over control of the substance
and... we are already moving to alternative energy
Nothing, no one is going to change the political realities or the economic ones, the president or economy doesn't much change anything for the poor
and the rich and copanies will be paying this damage off regardless of who is in charge, that's the way it is
So i'm ZEROED on anything changing Politically War wise or Economically, anything said on these topics is a lie
We will not leave Iraq and let Iran have it
We will not get rid of this debt 40% tax on the rich or 45% it's the arte of monthly/yearly payment and those really paying it should decide
We will not avoid war if Oil is needed
WE will suffer whatever attacks and affront come at us as a result of Bushes idiocies no matter who is in charge
Nothing changes, we will be in the same boat politically and economically despite what promises are made
And to me... Obama is the Big Over Promiser more so than Mc Cain
Aside from that what the President can Change and will is Social Direction
I have one true thought on the election that being the case...
Whats done is done... socially my method, what I am prepared for, to fix the ills in my life and around me... what I have in my head given the awful
reality of a war that is not going away, a cultural and oil dispute globally and all the rest...
Is to be Conservative, with my money, with my life, with my behavior, with everything...
If the economy does and will suck no matter what and inflation on food and transpo is brutal and war and threats may only get worse no matter what
It's a time for... fixing within, many of the issues I am not a huge fan of, the abortion debate, or alot of it...
But, Wars need babies, Obama can't fix a global oil crisis and create peace on Earth, a Bad economy means...limiting excess, a screwed up environment
means you have to save and not waste etc, etc, et al
live a conservative life and...frankly we ARE decadent
I am not at all concerned right now with, the sexuality Of things, the debate on culture, freedoms of Behavior...
My need is having children, to survive and be okay... barring Nuclear war which we can argue forever about "could you survive"
a depression, a war in which we are struck in some manner, an escalation, and a life that allows security and safety, living away from targets,
holding onto money, stocking up, keeping my kids out of harm... criminal activity, psycho shooting, American behavior and violence and sex and Me Me
Me is out of control and it costs alot and it is not the time right now
Right now...Americans would do better to follow a system of values that (even if sometimes hypocritical) keeps their lives conservative and they will
do better in what I would bet anything is going to be very rough times ahead at the very least
No president can control this spiral
so if how we live is up as the choice and it is... I want to be able to lead a a conservative life, I'm with the Lady in the Woods, the survivalists,
prayer and family and hope and conservative living ...Right now...these next 4 years
And do I agree with individual belief systems... If I had the debate with Palin or McCain about my, largely self created, religous views... we
wouldn't directly agree
But, I can avoid that debate right now in life and... agree that a certain set of values, traditional, conservative will, enable our survival and
prosperity and finance and lifestyle better
And in the end, my overall take on it
We are going to be at war the next 4 years, worse war, bigger war, awful war
Why? Because the rest of the world is not American and One week after Obama gets in the Ayatollah wont be saying "Hey the Black guys coming over all
Was Bush right about anything NO
But now the hornets nest is all stirred up, there isn nothing Barack can do about it his concept that him having an Islamic name and not being Bush
will calm things down...no
Because looking at Americans, especially, Gay Marriage going through, more social liberalness, all of it... we will still be hated by the extremists,
they will use any door now after Bush who created this self fulfilling Prophecy and use it
We are screwed, Russia is wide awake again, world opinion of us sucks...
"I'm Black I can talk to them" is NOT going to stop this... It is a false hope, Other coountries will go right after the Oil as soon as we leave,
Russia, Iran... Isreal is out of control so is Iran...
I want a guy who doesn't want war, but has been in one before in charge, Mc Cain is the better guy for a fight, both to fight it and to hopefully bow
out without looking weak, slowly, with stregnth
I'm Sorry I'm with the Lady with the shotgun and a Bible right now...
Abortion I usually in life (although not for me personally) was pro choice
I have One line to say...
"Sparta will need sons"
a joke, but about a serious issue of manpower vs... Billions maybe
This wont be over because we elect a Liberal who wants peace... In America we still adress Race issues 50 years after the civil rights movement, as i
pointed out elsewhere, "a portion" of Blcack America commits crimes against whites 50 years later at 20-1 ratio in some years of White gainst
In America, with our, short term memory, self indulgent lifestyle, relative comfort by comparisson
This ..what Bush started will not end, it's a long time before the depleated Uranium will be gone, like decades long for all intents and purposes
My concern is a lifestyle centered around stregnth and survival, we are not going to be able to just "walk away" from what went on
and this is no time for inner conflict over past American issues, no time for the race debate to be fueled etc, etc... no time to worry baout our sex
lives or party habits...
This is no party these years coming up
