If my vote and every other vote weren't needed to keep Barack Obama out of the White House, I'd vote for Barr, too. I'm a Libertarian. But Obama
is a slimy ward-heeling little bastard who has learned how to convincingly simulate having a conscience for large audiences. The man worked as a
legal gunfighter for a SLUMLORD, for Christ's sake! Great resume, huh?
I'm no JFK fan, but all the comparisons between Obama and JFK just show how stupid the press today is. For all his faults, JFK served his country in
combat; he put in considerable time in Congress - many years - before he ran for the Presidency.
By comparison, Obama's resume sucks. He was a lawyer who handled some dirty work for a slumlord; then he had a teaching job at a law school; an
unfinished term in the Illinois State Senate; then his current job in the US Senate, where he's impressed people mainly by his lack of attendance at
defense committee hearings and his slavish obedience to the farthest left wing of the Democratic Party. He doesn't represent anything or anybody but
Markos Moulitsas and his fellow hard left ass monkeys, as you can tell by looking at his votes.
Then there's John McCain - many years in the US Senate, he's risked the wrath of his own political base to reach across the aisle and make
bipartisan compromises (even if some of them, like the McCain-Feingold Campaign Reform Act, were total screw-ups at their intended purpose). Before
that, he was in business, not screwing poor families or helping slumlords screw them. and before that, volunteered for dangerous duty in Vietnam -
flew combat missions until he was shot down and kept prisoner for years by the enemy.
I've actually seen people on chatrooms (who apparently cut English class in junior high and were social-promoted through high school) talk about not
voting for "McCane's war trama ass."
THAT'S an Obama supporter. Do we really want his man in the White House? Not me. Do his supporters want to riot in the streets if their guy loses?
Fine. Don't mind the buckshot and police dogs.
