No To Obama – No To McCain – Give Me Another Choice! Please!!!

August 15th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Can’t Decide!It’s coming down to the wire and a silent majority may still be trying to make up their mind (like me) on who they should vote for!  Give me another choice!  Please!!!  This very well could have been the first year that an independent third party could have made an impact by winning the presidential election!  Alas, there is no such independent candidate running for president and we are left with choosing the lesser of two evils, so to speak.

ObamaBarack Obama scares me, not because, as he says, he doesn’t look like any of the presidents on the dollar bills, but more because he is such an excellent speaker, telling people what they want to hear,… but, the important question should be, is there any substance there?  I for one have not forgotten that his former mentor and pasteur preaches racism and hatred against the white man.  Obama listened to this man preach for twenty years, considered this man his mentor, dedicated his book to this man, had his children baptised by him and then comes out with the lame excuse that he doesn’t agree with his ideas and we’re suppose to believe him!  The scary part is, many people do believe him!!!   

McCainMcCain on the other hand is saying it like it is and what we’re hearing is not what we want to hear, and that’s the problem!  No we do not want four more years of Bushism and unfortunately that is what McCain is offering.  McCain’s conservative views on abortion is another issue that bothers me.  Just because a law will state that abortion is illegal doesn’t mean that women will not seek to have one.  Quite the contrary, wealthy women will just buy an airplane ticket and go to London or Paris and have an abortion, while poor women will resort to finding a quack in a back alley to perform the abortion for her!  Wake up McCain, this is a woman’s choice!

Paris For PresidentSo where does that leave many of us?  I’m not sure!  If Gore would run, he would have a chance, if Bill Richardson would reenter the race as an independent, with all his experience, he would have a chance, if Ralph Nadar would run again, he would be surprised by how many would vote for him this time.  Hell, if Clint Eastwood would run, he would have a chance!

Maya Muses:  Yes, even Paris Hilton will pickup some write-in votes just so voters can show how much they dislike the two presidential candidates that we have!

    It will be interesting to follow this….

    Not because I’m that interested in politics…

    But because it mirror so much of our beliefs, and how, many of us,experience the world and the choices we have to choose between….

    Many don’t care to vote anymore…
    “Whats the point, they say…”They all make promises and then they never keep them,after we have given them our votes!”

    It is like this here in Sweden too….

    We also have had many strange,funny parties:
    “Speaking empty chairs”…”The toilet party”…

    In the long run…does it make any difference?

    Maybe we should ask ourselves this:
    “Why do we have the “leaders” we have?
    Why do we have to choose between two evils,or as we say in Sweden; “between pest(plague) or kolera(cholera)”?

    What kind of world are we living in?
    What kind of world do we want to live in?
    Who decides how the world looks like today?
    Who decides what the world will look like tomorrow?

    A big topic this….

    I know nothing of political issues…

    But, I know a lot about living and what people value the most if you ask them….
    The sad thing is; many don’t think they will get it…..and then they just give up.
    The good thing is;I’ve met/meet a lot of people who trust that they will,and that they do have the power to make a difference….they struggle and fall sometimes,but they don’t give up!

    Someone said; that we have the “leaders” that we deserve…
    Well,I do hope that we deserve better than those we have today…
    I guess the future will tell…
