It’s probably too close to my bedtime to take this question up, but I have to get it out of my system…
At the DNC, Al Gore’s speech asked why this campaign is so close. I wonder that too. How on Earth is it possible that anybody could vote for that ticket? How is it possible that they might win? Can anybody *really* imagine Sarah Palin as President? Can anybody really imagine John McCain with the authority to make decisions about war and peace? Does anybody who isn’t already filthy rich really want to hand more of our hard-earned money to people who already own everything? Does anybody really believe that making the rich richer will help anybody but the rich? Does anybody really believe that offering health insurance tax credits to middle and low-income citizens will help them get insurance?
If you can answer yes to any of those questions, we don’t live on the same planet, much less the same country.
It’s unspeakably frightening and sad that anybody believes a word that comes out of the mouths of those liars.
Barack Obama and Joe Biden are no princes, to be sure. But both are committed to giving our country back to the people it should belong to: US.
Or in the punk-rock anthem terms of the Dead Kennedys’ “Stars and Stripes of Corruption”:
“This land I love it too/I think I love it more than you/I care enough to fight the Stars and Stripes of Corruption.”
God (Gods/Goddesses) bless Jello Biafra.
