I'll give it to the Dems, they have an all star line up of diversified, culturally competent, new school and old school players ready to save the U.S. from the likes of Cheney and KBR. At least it's not the same tired ass collection cry baby's and stiff East coast types. I might actually be able to vote based on my hate for the white man, instead of my fear of the white man this time. The republicans, as expected, have hauled out the usual motley crew of rich honkeys who love jesus and dine on gay, Jew baby hearts; some of them have even rejected evolution (seriously). Now, as most of you know i used to be a die hard republican; before it meant being a fascist bible thumper, being a republican meant accepting that government can't do shit for you that you can't do for yourself. That meant that the government couldn't tell a woman not to terminate a pregnancy or tell a young family in the ghetto that the only way to get out of the slum was to use food stamps or that the only way to love ones country is to shut the fuck up and support the troops and don't ask questions about no bid contracts. The party was a bit more libertarian in those days and that republican party no longer exists; sorry it just doesn't. I wish it did, but there is no going back now and to those in the party who are there and lament Jerry Falwell's passing i say: FUCK YOU! THE GUY WAS AN ASSHOLE AND SO ARE YOU! I HOPE THE DEVIL IS CRAMMING A STICK OF DYNAMITE UP HIS UPTIGHT, SELF-RIGHTEOUS ASS RIGHT NOW! FUCK JERRY FALWELL, ALIVE OR DEAD (i had to get that out)!
The republican party is now the home for gay hating, jesus freaks and the fifty percent of Americans who don't believe in evolution but, believe that Nascar is a fucking sport. You've got Huckabee who thinks creationism should be taught in schools, Romney who wants to double the size of Guantanamo, though most credible human rights organizations agree it should be shut down, Rudy who's only claim to being a good leader is being the mayor of NY on 9/11 and Tancredo who despises Mexicans and thinks that Jack Bauer will save us if terrorists strike. Those of you wondering why I don't love McCain I can only say that, yes, I liked the guy but lost respect for him in the last couple elections when he let Rove and Bush off the hook after they called his wife a drug addict and said his children were mud baby's from an extramarital affair; any man who would put politics before family doesn't deserve my vote. Basically, it looks like the GOP is sitting out this next election; guess we will have to wait until Jeb Bush decides to run to be afraid of being Americans again. I will miss the days of having to put off vacations outside the U.S., but it's a small price to pay if we can get our collective sanity back.
It's really to early for all of this. Why are all of these people getting lined up 18 months before the shit goes down? I don't get it. Why is everyone in such a hurry to replace the worst president in history? I mean they are having debates and everything. Could it be because now that the office of the presidency and politics in general has been so tarnished, so irrevocably made to be despised, the only way is up and the next president will be able to do everything short of murdering an infant on live television and still look like Kennedy? After what we have just been through for the last 8 years I don't blame people for feeling weird about politics, but we get the kind of government that we deserve and if we don't demand that these party's give us better alternatives, we will get more of the same; better yet we should demand more than just these 2 lame ass political parties. Whats wrong with have a Socialist or a green or libertarian or even fascist party candidate. It's diversity that strengthens the democratic system and makes us appreciate our system of government. Jesus, are we that shell shocked and traumatized by the Bush years that will settle for anything at this point?
