america lies. it's really that simple. some of us lie more than others- but essentially, we are liars. whether it be foreign policy, torture, or 'no, you don't look fat in that dress' - we lie. perhaps if the truth tellers would grow a set and stop coddling the politically correct 'morans', we might get to the heart of the issues- but, alas, rachel maddow seems to be the only one.
anyhoo- my puzzlement doesn't come from the lies- i just assume that i can't trust anyone. no, my puzzlement is why are we going through with this farce of an election. there should be no doubt in any american's mind about whether they should vote for mccain. the answer is emphatically no! why on god's green earth would you even consider it? the entire economy is in the toilet- if you want to leave the wars and conflicts out of the equation. shouldn't that be enough to make folks run screaming away from the republican party and voting for anyone on the right? so, why then are the polls from the 'liberal' corporate media constantly telling us that obama and mccain are neck and neck? could so very many people actually be considering throwing what's left of this country into the world's garbage can?
or is it as simple as the polls lie? the media lies? now, whatever would give me an idea like that?
