Election '08

Alternatively, the duel of the dimwits. Now are the dimwits the two candidates, or is it the two collective political factions of America. I have pretty much lost total faith in this country that things could even get this bad. How two people like McCain and Obama could even get within striking distance of the White House. McCain is an old hat, career politician. He or his advisers stick their fingers in the air to see which way the wind is blowing, then they try to posture themselves as being the leaders of the trend. Essentially McCain is John Kerry pt.2. Obabma is a fresh face, but he is no less a career politician. He has not accomplished anything in his entire senate career. This guy sings "change and hope" as much as Karl Marx chanted "revolution". This is scary that so many people are hypnotized by a catch phrase. Does any school in America even teach critical thinking 101? How to question what you are told. How can so many people just accept, without scrutiny, anything they are told. We have truly become the land of the ignorant. I know the way I'm talking could be construed as elitist. I am simply talking as a man who has studied American history, and appreciates the sacrifice of those who have come before. The fact is, no one today knows what it's like to go without, to suffer for your beliefs and be persecuted to the point of death, for a love of liberty. And sometimes, those who don't appreciate what they have, don't deserve to keep it.
