This is a post I wrote over at WNR in the election thread and I liked it so much I blogged it.
The funniest thing to me about Obama is what a "messianic" following he's gathered over the last few months. No matter what comes out about him, it just seems to reflect off of him. He's more than a bit "teflon". I'm no McCain fan either, but instead of sitting with his thumb up his ass as he's done since he got the nomination, he needs to go on the offensive about some of this stuff. If I were McCain, I'd be running commercials about that nutty ass fucking kook who was Obama's pastor, his friends with less than honorable connections, and his wishy washy stance on Iraq, but instead McCain just sits there like a fucking knot on a log. I personally feel that neither of them are worth a fucking shit and neither of them can help the country, but it sure is fun to watch stupid ass Democrats and stupid ass Republicans go at it tooth and nail. I frankly feel that the war in Iraq is firmly Bush's fault, but the democrats helped fuck up the economy just as much as the Republicans did. The Democrats are as much to blame for oil prices, a recession, and high unemployment as the Republicans are, but they sure aren't painting it that way. If you listen to the Democrats, it's the republicans' fault that gas is now over 4 bucks a gallon, the economy is shit, and frankly everything else in the world is the Republican party's fault as well. Goddamn finger pointing hasn't gotten us anywhere in the last 8 years and it sure isn't gonna help now.
As I've said before, it's time for a 3rd party to step forward and end this two party bullshit that is taking place in America. Face it folks, the Democrats or Republicans don't give a fuck about you. All they care about is fingering the asshole of their special interest groups and lining their pockets. I feel that Obama will be elected and I feel that we'll have at the very least 4 more years of bullshit. Gas will be 8 bucks a gallon once that damn fool leaves office and we'll still be in a recession. Obama isn't the answer folks and neither is McCain. It's time for a 3rd party to shake the fucking foundations of the status quo in Washington and I don't give a damn if it's Barr and the Libertarians or Nader and the Green Party. Americans are tired of this bullshit and it's high time more of us started voting for what we believe in instead of voting for the lesser of two evils.
Do you truly think that Washington, Jefferson, and Adams envisioned a voting process where both of the candidates are hated, and the American public votes for the one we hate less? I don't think so. It's time for politicians to quit worrying about abortion, satellite radio mergers, gay marriage, and start worrying about our shitty economy, the price of gas, the housing crisis, and the other major issues facing the common folks in this country. Get us the fuck out of Iraq and let's take care of the people who were responsible in Afghanistan for 9-11. I'm tired of laying down for a fucking from the political electorial system in this country. We haven't had a president that's worth a fucking damn in years and it's not gonna change now. I'm just so hopelessly frustrated as an American. This system is not what our founding fathers envisioned.
