Okay, show of hands.

Who *actually* watched the VP debate the other evening? Carefully chosen and predigested snippets on the news don't count.

Second question... Who *actually* watched the Presidential debate?

You would have liked the 1st Presidential debate, you could gloat about Kerry's smooth delivery and (possibly) reconcile his anti-defense record and pro-defense campaign talk.

Frankly, I'm amazed that many of the people I respect here on LJ (and in my real life) refuse to get good information and are blinded by the ABB disease. ABB is a mockery of democracy. If deep down in your heart you thought that Kerry could engage a broader coalition in Iraq and that raising taxes on small business owners is a good (and job creating) policy, then please vote for Kerry with honor and pride. ABB is below your intelligence.

Now, if you think that Kerry will be able to engage a broader coalition in Iraq - I suggest you start paying attention to the Oil for Food scandal. Alot of things, past and present, will start to make more sense and the idea of broader coalition, like the UN security council, is a joke. Saddam made the politicians and leaders of many of our "allies" very, very rich. THAT is why they refuse(d) to help, not because Bush is a church-going-right-wing-Texas-yahoo. It's been going on for years, Bush knew it, and I'm glad he said "fuck you" to the UN, now more than ever.

Trying to rationalize won't help me. Don't take this the wrong way. I think they're all crooks and liars. I have no reason to trust or distrust any of them, nor do I think anything that any of them do or don't do is affected in the least by what I do, or don't do. The last four years have solidified that. If anyone sees it for anything else, I can't say I understand. Republicans, Democrats, Liberal, Conservative. They are all one, huge, ugly black monster, and the US is the creature's throne.

"crooks and liars"
That pretty much sums up how I feel too. The battle of the silver spoons.

I also felt un-affecting, but that pretty much changed last election with things being so close. I'm ashamed to say I didn't vote, and maybe if others like me had voted things would be different. With record voter registration, I think this election is different.

So, I decided to vote educated this time and ignore my first instinct to ABB. New Jersey is an important state in this election, so please consider stepping back and looking at the big picture before picking one, huge, ugly black monster over the other. They are both against gay marriage and both for staying in Iraq until the job is done so you have nothing to loose by looking at other issues. Then, come Nov. 2nd, you will know did the best you could (for yourself - not for "America") when you vote.

Assuming you are going to vote....
