It would be more logical, there is more evidence to vote for Nader or McKinney. All my views pretty much lie with them.
But that is not the situation
The situation is:
The Republicans need to get fuck out
We have a democracy
and democracy grants us the ability even if takes longer, to create a slow revolution
because real revolutions
destroy lives and destroy infrastructure
I work with a marine who served in Somalia and he told me about what civil war can lead to
I've read about The Reconstruction and The French Revolution
And Levy's End of History
They destroy lives and destroy infrastructure
democracy takes time
You can mention the Civil War
but during the Civil War blacks and women were not allowed to vote
Now everyone can vote
Life is not great
and it will never be a utopia
Bush has destroyed democracy
and he has not destroyed The Constitution
Obama wants several things
No tax breaks for the rich
He wants health care for children
He wants to help people go to college by community service
He wants community service
I was watching the town hall debate between Obama and McCain and when McCain was acting all nuts and flaky, and trying to start, Obama stood there strong and did not flinch, and I thought there, "There is a president."
It reminded me of Numa Pompilius or an FDR.
He looks a motivator and that is what we need more than anything right now, someone who can motivate these assholes.
