I hold no hope for Obama.
I hold no hope for Obama…. a hastily written and misspelled response to me saying I hold no hope for Obama.
And I apologize for this… I’ve been holding back this for a while…
Obama reminds me of this Hicks quote:
“But there’s no hope in Clinton,” “It’s just a handful of people that run everything, and that’s provable…. I have this feeling that whoever’s elected president, like Clinton was, no matter what promises you make on the campaign trail – blah, blah, blah – when you win, you go into this smoky room with the twelve industrialist, capitalist scumfucks that got you in there, and this little screen comes down… and it’s a shot of the Kennedy assassination from an angle you’ve never seen before, which looks suspiciously off the grassy knoll…. And then the screen comes up, the lights come on, and they say to the new president, ‘Any questions?’\
The only difference is Obama has all those guys in the smoky room working for him as his fundraisers, as his advisors. The only things that will change with an Obama win are things will get a little better for those making enough cash to afford a new macbook. if you’re at the bottom of the barrel you might as well be at the end of the barrel of a gun. Obama is seen as a crazy leftist – he’s going to have to take out some of those on the bottom, just like Clinton did. More NAFTA (sorry, Auto workers), more CAFTA (sorry brown people who voter 4 to 5 for Obama, more welfare cuts (sorry everyone who voted for me 5 to 5). Where’s the poverty programs? Where’s the single payer healthcare that every-one-the-fuck-else in the industrialized world enjoys (and who don’t think it’s socialism) but for some reason “the greatest nation in the world” doesn’t have.
Oh, and he wants to leave Iraq and increase our presence in Afghanistan. Brilliant. Let’s leave an unstable sinkhole to get ourselves into the another mess because Americans are bored with it the desert. 4,000 dead – let’s compare that to the number that our last Democratic president left in Iraq – 500,000. We forget that don’t we. Bill Clinton and Al Gore were responsible for half a million dead Iraqi children, look it up.
Let me be the first liberal bastard on earth to say this: More people died in Iraq during Clinton than under George “I wanna kill something from a distance” Bush.
Anyway What’s going to happen when we leave? Fluffy bunnies and tea parties? What’s his plan for filling the hole that the US military is going to leave? oh the Iraqi army? heh, I got nothing, really…anyone who believes that the Iraqi army is going to ‘stand up’ is more insane than all the people that believe Barack Obama is going to bring anything more to the White House than a change of sheets.
Yeah, of course he’ll be better than McCain/Bush/Palin. My little sister could do a better job at running the country than that trio.
The question you need to ask yourself in the voting booth is:
Who does the man I’m voting for really represent? The people who voted for him, or the people who financed his campaign. Obama and McCain have both shown that they are willing to change their stances on key issues or ignore the views of their supporters if it means they’ll be able to raise more cash.
ex. Who financed the DNC? ATT. Who had the most to lose from FISA…ATT.
I’m just saying don’t accept these crappy ass candidates, open your eyes, there are other people running – and remember they don’t have a chance of winning… unless you vote for them.
