Honestly, I think everyone is blowing this shite out of proportion. We've got one bunch who are seeing monsters in their closets and another who say the others are the monsters in the closets.
Big F'ing deal, because both parties are the monsters; they've both royally screwed us, time and again.
*Twirls right index finger around sarcastically.*
Why don't we just forget about the boogyman "racism card" (ooh, so scary) and actually sit down and look at the comments intellectually. Hmm? Or, try this, everyone take their meds and quit with the schizophrenic like attitude over Obama (or McCain). (And this is why politics is bittersweet to me; on one hand I enjoy discussing it, and at other times I want to blast it.)
Think about this, is McCain really doing these things, yes. Why? Because it's tactics, it's politics. Has Obama done similar disdainful things, heck yes. It's what you have to do in politics these days, plain and simple. Look at McCain's ads; he doesn't understand the difference betwee refining a stance, flip flopping, and changing a stance due to learning more. He's calling one thing another, and another thing one thing. Obama, yes, he has flip flopped, I realize that, but he's also adjusted accordingly (McCain has too, though it's rarely if ever heard about in the media). It's politics, it happens.
Honestly, all of you republicans who bash/slander obama and democrats who bash/slander McCain are fools, sheep, playing into their game. It is NOT about what party you are, haven't they both shown us that they're incompetent? Haven't they both shown us that they (99% of them) are not really working for us? Where's the jobs? Where's the better health care?
Hmm? How long have these issues been around, and what've they done? Oy Vey. Politics is (truly) the art of pandering to the fools and easily swayed.
Have any of you actually gone to CNN and just read the comments on the political news pieces (notably the ticker). Dear lord we're fucked. If these are the type of people that truly represent this country, then why the hell do either men want to be president? No wonder Bush looks like he's aged thirty years.
Some reasons why I like Obama is: 1) He's a fresh face and is genuinely a nice guy. 2) He's got a point in that we need a new form of politics, grass roots, more local politics; we all know, or should, that our politicians are not going to represent us, period. It's up to US, everyone at a local level to push what they need done. 3) Whether or not he has the answers (which i doubt, see below) or is "The One," (as McCain stated) and if we as a majority choose to continue to take it, then we're going to need more hope, and trust...in our government.
Some reasons why I like McCain: 1) Like Obama, he's a nice guy. 2) He's a man who very steadfast/strong, which is commendable. 3) He's a
Do note though that even though I like Obama and McCain as well, that doesn't mean I will vote for either of them.
We've come so far, and spent too much blood in our country's long spectacular history to let this type of shite ruin us. We're not united, and we won't be so long as we let them (gestures with his middle finger at both parties) control us. We need to take back our country.
Also, was it ever one man, or one group that had the answer or the way? No. So why would anyone think that their party would?
