…is either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, then you’re working with the enemy.
It’s evil to buy into the idea that we can only pick one of these two completely unacceptable politicians. Neither one of them has the desire or the capacity to change the course that America is presently on.
A half a decade ago, I would have agreed that there was a difference between the parties. Now, the difference is so subtle that the results would be inconsequential. The difference between Romney and Clinton or Gore? HUGE. The difference between Romney and Obama? Barely noticeable.
I’m not into self-delusion. I want power as much as the next person. Anyone who thinks they are going to get even a minute smidgeon of influence by voting for Obama is out of his or her effing mind. You can only get power by joining with others and refusing to go along with the intentional destruction of your rights.
I’m surprised that the blogosphere has *still* not gotten the courage to fight back. So, are we supposed to lapse into the dog days of summer, waiting for the inevitable, while Obama and Rahm and the other Chicago style Dems hold the liberals hostage? If you weren’t appalled by Rahm’s authoritarian attack on free speech in the Chik-fil-A debacle, you weren’t paying attention to all of the violent crackdowns on Occupy and the inability of citizens to express their grievances in a public place.
You’ll get more of that if you continue to elect this version of Democrats. There ARE other options but if you don’t want to discuss them, then yeah, I guess you’ll have to choose one of the two bad guys. The rest of us will turn our backs and walk away just like the party walked away from us and our trivial no jobs/no money problems.
I am not going to vote for another enabler of the financial industry. I want someone who is going to put these assholes in rehab so we can get our jobs back and save for old age again. If you think for one minute that Barack Obama is your guy, you’re delusional.
