Americans are a sad, sad bunch. You’re more politically sophisticated than 99% of Americans. The pipe being passed around called “Obama is the candidate of change!”, “Clinton supports children”, “McCain is a straight talker”, “Obama is the multicultural president for the 21st century” never seems to die out. It’s effects might possibly be fatal for the country.
Lung disease. Can an entire nation die of lung disease?
Americans are sure to elect a corporate candidate, yet again. The results will be increased economic disparity between the rich and poor, little security from terrorist attack, further erosion of social services, more funneling of taxpayer dollars to well-connected corporate interests.
Wow, I can’t wait! Yay for corporatism, maybe moving into fascism and a police state! Let’s kill America, one tax cut for the rich at a time.
McCain? He is somewhat better than Bush in some ways. He seemed to oppose torture, plus a few other tidbits of non-badness. Maybe if comes to his senses some more, he might just become slightly less worse than Nixon.
I don’t see that it’s very good that he opposes torture when he practically makes love to bombs. As the death toll produced by the McCain version of the American Empire reaches 2 million, 3 million, maybe more, are we really going to say “Well, at least he isn’t torturing people!”
I did not describe him as good, merely less worse than Bush. Much like getting beaten with a broom handle is better than getting beaten with a baseball bat. They both suck. It’s just that the broom handle hurts less.
