Why do we even bother with elections? It always goes to the big oil companies and corporations who dole out the most money anyway. We haven't seen
any real debates so far, and very little discussion has occured on the actual issues. It's just been big paid for add campaigns and the corporate
media who cashes the campaign add checks, paroting the cult of personality rumor mill garbage. It's for the same reason that so few are in the
library after classes...nobody wants to do the effort to actually learn...they take the easy way out and accept the spoon fed drivle...
"drill baby drill"...that's what they offer us? Huh? I remember when I first heard about the concept of a "dumbed down America", and back then
I thought of it only theoretically, while now, I am seeing it in real time...
I'm trying to get myself used to the idea of another 4 years of Bush...McCain is more of the same...even though they have stolen the "change"
theme, when you nail them to the wall and ask them questions about policy, it ain't there...it's just like the new Cyndi Lauper song...it's "the
same ole' fu*#ing story". And millions who are not in favor of bush cheney will vote for him. Unbelievable. Well so is the HS drop out rate and
the amount of folks under an average IQ, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
