Something with a whizz and a bang.
That's the only way I can explain it when I see the fervor and zeal for Obama. I honestly think that some people just want to witness something historic (oooh...ahhhh...). That's it. They don't care if Obama is pushing a socialist agenda. They don't care that the tax plan is to redistribute money... they don't care if what he says is true or not - it sounds good - therefore we must swoon (sigh). It doesn't even matter that the role of the President is not all encompassing power... it's enough to say that the President can balance the budget, make us all healthy and bring world peace. It doesn't matter if none of this will ever happen in their term, or ever.
Historic - that's it. It's like in ancient times. All they wanted was some entertainment. They didn't care at what expense... (human). Romans in a colisseum. That's what our election looks like. Is that even remotely crazy to you? Or maybe it's just me.
There's that hubbub about Joe the Plumber. I find it disturbing that he asked a valid question - and instead of Obama's handlers addressing the issue - they spend all their time trying to discredit the plumber. Here's the deal - character or no character - the plumber asked a question - one that was a really good question - one that proved that Obama is a socialist.
Mr. Obama said, "It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success, too. I think that when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."How is that good for everybody??? Anyone with a actively thinking noggin' knows that will kill any incentive to work, invent, start business... all the ingenuity that makes America and it's people great. I really do not want to turn into a place like the fomer soviet union... I don't. I appreciate, and honestly like our freedoms. Don't you?
Obama wants to take money someone earned with hard work, creativity - and give it to someone else... um, sorry - I don't want that. Listen - if you want to pay more taxes - go for it, more power to you - but if I don't want to - I shouldn't have to. Don't force me to - it only pisses me off.
Listen - I've never been a fan of McCain... I'm a disappointed in politics in general - but at this point...given my choices... do I want to preserve democracy or do I want a radical change to socialism... um... gee ... for me it's an easy answer. Oh yes... it's also been cast... so kiss me - I voted. (I wish they gave out those stickers at the voting booth)
Wondering ... if we had people run...without parties... people that we'd actually have to research and get-to-know on our own... without the craziness of DC... wouldn't we get better people - or just more narcissists...because those are usually the only ones that want to run for office? It seems the only ones that want the self-importance of public office are all like Napoleon.
