When I am presented with the current thinking of political pundits like Karl Rove, Dick Morris, and James Carville, I am reminded that they package politicians … complete with opinions and spin-tested lines. Putting forth their political ideology which is neither left, nor right, but self-serving. Thus it is with the talking heads and other pundits labeled as political strategists. For what are they selling except themselves as knowledgeable prognosticators of the future – much like fortune tellers who know that it is not happiness that drives you to seek their counsel.
So to all the socialist/communists on the left and the conservatives on the right, I say you are all deeply flawed – pushing your own brand of bullshit in order to gain or maintain political power. Pretending your selfish and self-serving ass is somehow serving our country and humanity. When we can see the results of your past – all pointing to more of the same.
I think I will wait until I find a more perfect candidate, not some telegenic, well-spoken yahoo being shoved down my throat with the admonition, vote for me because I am the lesser of the two evils.
No you are not the lesser of two evils – you are evil and therefore not worthy of my vote. So until that rare candidate appears, the one who speaks with pride about his country, I think I will pass on giving you my money, time, and effort.
As far as I am concerned, all Republicans appear to me to be John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie and other assorted politicians from the corrupt and complacent side of the party. I forgot who said it, and too tired to research it, but when a democrat faces a moderate republican – the democrat always wins. If you believe this not to be the case, consider the true background, education, and attitudes of George Bush (43) and John Kerry. They are closer together on one side – Northeastern liberal elites – than they are to the people they purport to serve. Both steeped in self-serving crony capitalism.
