I had a bad feeling about GWB...
Once I realized what FOX did calling Florida early I knew my fears were well deserved.
I think these past 8 years have been a complete disaster. I watched the fear mongering and nationalism transform into a blank check of bad will. I
cannot even begin to list the quasi evil, certainly sociopathic policies and blunders. Katrina, Iraq,
GITMO, ENRON, PLAME, ABRAMOFF, LIBBY, PATRIOT ACT, INFLATION, DEBT, FORECLOSURES, BACK ROOM DEALS, GAS PRICES, CALIFORNIA ENERGY CRISIS,
BANK FAILINGS, JOB LOSSES, TRICKLE DOWN, VOTER FRAUD, NO PROOF NO CRIME....
I am SO sick and tired of this stuff already... At times I am glad I am not face to face with some of the folks on ATS. I might seriously bloody
someone beyond recognition.
It is very hard to sit around and watch your country go down the obvious path of oblivion. In a way it seems like the SOUL of the US has been crapped
upon and a stampeded by an ideology that is completely rotten.
At the core of my political anger issues are the voters... For the life of me I can not understand why people think TORTURE IS FINE, TICKLE DOWN is
good for the middle class, IRAQ is not a waste of time money blood security and stature... I think the world is glad I am not PRESIDENT because I
would suspend BUSH TWICE voter rights pending and IQ test.
Another point is I am sick being called a LIBERAL like the "N" word. Once again I have already choked a guy at a rally in real life. I lost control
and he smiled at me in the most condescending way and I snapped. I am worried that if the balance is not restored
that I would be the first to pick up arms and fight THE REDS again. If I go a step further, I could say I would be happy enough if the west coast
could just leave the UNION.
At time I wonder if this division is by design? Regardless I am convinced that MCCAIN and PALIN are not any different than BUSH.
I have no evidence that indicates that Mccain will be an advocate for the MAJORITY of working class AMERICA. I believe if AMERICA was in a strong
position this would not matter... The rich could receive the majority of consideration and AMERICA could survive. However I DO NOT think we can
survive anymore of the pillage and plunder.
As far as Mccain is concerned: HE ACTIVELY used his position of power to help
LINCOLN SAVINGS AND LOAN to steel from people. I understand it is by gone,
however I think it speaks volumes about his ability to do the same in the future.
HIS actions were DEPLORABLE and CRIMINAL...
As far as PALIN... I think her recent talk is DISGUSTING - The reason I feel this way is because it is a form of divide and conquer. It is of the same
attitude that says it is OK to torture, it is OK to use fear as a form of control.
I am voting for Obama because I think AMERICA needs an intellectual, a self made man, forward thinker and a champion for the majority of AMERICANS who
live paycheck to paycheck. I agree that HEALTH CARE is a RIGHT, we are the engine of AMERICA - and if it is for the people by the people - then this
is the one area that we
must progress. I DO NOT like socialism, HOWEVER, I think a persons well health should no longer be a part of the CAPITALIST way! There are millions of
ways to make a buck,
but no longer in this arena.
