I was listening to some swing-State political ads and the Republican commercials were blatantly playing to the racist, undereducated white American. I guess there are a lot of those because this Presidential race should not be close at all.
I have major problems with where President Obama decided to make his stand on the Conservative/Progressive scale. Progressives didn’t know anything about him and it seems we paid a big price for our blind support and his victory in 2008.
President Obama is the best Republican President since Teddy Roosevelt. His stands on Wall Street regulators, drone warfare, health insurance companies, oil drilling and global warming… the list is long… are all disappointments to this liberal.
The Republican opposition is treasonous and sinful, so I am not disappointed that McCain/Palin are not running the country… and Romney/Ryan are an even bigger insulting choice to lead this great nation.
I am not, however voting for a lesser of two evils.
There is only one evil in this election, the Republican Ticket. President Obama, in a better land and a more enlightened time, would not deserve a second term. I wanted a liberal primary challenge for him, but there is no hesitancy on my part to support and vote for the Obama/Biden ticket in 2012. It is a moral imperative.
The swing-State political ads the Republicans are running underlie the basic fault in 21st Century America. We are not an intellectual nation and the corporate sponsored Republican Party and mass media have misinformed the American people so completely and for so long now, that a large portion of the electorate proudly vote against, not only their best financial, social and community interests, They have Americans voting against their own spiritual, moral and physical wellbeing.
Folks who want to be part of a social conservative movement have no idea that abortion is not the only moral compass human beings can be judged on. The life of a child in the womb seems more important than the long life in this world.
If a child has a right to be born after the moment of conception, do we as a society have a right to guarantee a healthy, well educated, youth and a meaningful employed adult life with healthcare and social security waiting for them out here in their America?
Do morally good people pay taxes to godlike military budgets?
Do morally good people even play the stock market? It seems Jesus would be very interested in, god forbid socialism… but at least The New Deal.
America needed a strong, leftwing Democratic President in 2008. We didn’t get one, but we had the good sense to know the Republican alternative was wrong.
The pressure is on in American society. Our importance to anyone on this planet but ourselves is hanging in the balance. There is a clear choice between any Democratic candidate and any Republican candidate.
It is not a choice between two evils. It is a choice between a vote for common sense survival versus an evil that can only bring doom to us all.
