a big reason i don't fight anymore

i stopped fighting for america after the 2006 elections for a variety of reasons- not the least of which- i discovered that the majority of americans are flat out morons. rational, thinking people are the minority here so why should i fight for a country that marginalizes critical thinking skills, intelligence, and rationality? it's obvious that the asylum is being run by the inmates and if anyone thinks obama is going to be able to turn this ship around- i have some permafrost in alaska to sell ya.

the bible crap aside- and that's a big one that i won't get into in this post- i cannot wrap my head around mccain/palin supporters or the hillary pumas- for that matter i can't wrap my head around the obamabots either. but, then again, it is difficult for me to look at a politician with rock star zeal. hell, i can't even do that with rock stars. except for maybe james blunt... but i digress :)

here's the deal- it is going to take decades to even attempt to clean up the mess of the last century. most of the crap we are seeing now is the culmination of policies that started in the middle of the last century and were 'capitalized' on by cheney and his ilk. anyone who still believes that w. bush has been in charge of anything- well, you probably voted for him anyway. while it is important to vote for president- it is more important to vote for congress.

i'll give that it's own paragraph- IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO VOTE FOR CONGRESS AS IT IS THE ONLY BRANCH OUT OF 3 THAT IS DIRECTLY ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE. i don't have much faith that the folks in cali will dump pelosi on her ass. i am positive that she pulls the same underhanded voting bullshit as the rethugs do- i mean anyone who bends over backwards anytime the rethugs want something passed- well, you catch my meaning. here are some 'middle class american' quotes:

"...throwing the election away...for what -- an inadequate black male who would not have been running had it not been a white woman that was running for president. I'm not going to shut my mouth anymore. I can be called white, but you can't be called black...God Damn the Democrats."

"I've been there," said Ellie Plessinger, a real estate consultant from Saganaw, Michigan, who extolled Palin's work on local schools. "If you can run the PTA, you can run the country."

"She's real. Everyone can identify with her," said Karen Rinehart, from Pinkerton, a suburb of Columbus, who praised her clarity. "She has five kids. I have six."
