Well, now that McCain and Obama have announced their respective Vice Presidential running-mates, both surprising me by not joining the two parties together by nominating one another, the propaganda machines from the two sides (of the same coin) are in full swing.
In the past three days, I’ve received two emails, one from the ultra-lefty group MoveOn.org (which I originally joined because they were “pro-Bill of Rights” but are now “pro everything Communist”) and one from the ultra-right-wing side of things, Mr. Viguerie (touted as one of the nation’s “top 25 Republican movers-and-shakers”). Neither group is concerned with whether the Presidential candidate of their respective parties is any good, but instead focus on the Vice President. Probably because neither Presidential candidate is any good.
Anyway, here’s a snippet from MoveOn:
So Governor Palin is a staunch anti-choice religious conservative. She’s a global warming denier who shares John McCain’s commitment to Big Oil. And she’s dramatically inexperienced.
In picking Sarah Palin, John McCain has made the religious right very happy. And he’s made a very dangerous decision for our country.
Interesting. Of course, since the President makes no decisions or laws regarding abortion (or anything else, for that matter) and makes no decisions regarding national policy and law-making, these arguments are moot. The President of the United States does NOT make law, make decisions about law, or even enforce law. The President of the United States affects the law in one way only: veto. That can be overridden by the Congress, which is responsible for making law anyway. Again, THE PRESIDENT DOES NOT MAKE LAW OR POLICY. That is Congress’ job!
Not that so-called “progressives” (in my opinion, the term “progressive” is just a new way of saying “socialist”) would ever bother educating you or know themselves how our Constitutional Republic is organized.
So, now we turn to the so-called “conservatives” and their right-wing point of view. It must be much more rational and considered. Right? Ya, if you think that, you aren’t in politics…
McCain has chosen to balance his ticket with a principled conservative. Governor Palin’s life story is one of sticking to principle. She is living proof that a person can take on the corrupt political establishment – including corrupt leaders in her own party – and achieve great things,” he [Richard Viguerie] said.
Hmm…Well, the first sentence says it all. McCain, in order to balance his Republican (the so-called “conservative” party) ticket had to choose someone ultra-conservative to counterbalance him, which means he’s… yep, he’s obviously a liberal then. Hey, I didn’t say it, it’s right there from the King of Right Wing Viguerie himself. So the Republicans have a dead horse candidate and need something to liven it up. It doesn’t hurt that she’s a woman…
So there you have it. Both sides of the story in all their wonder. Isn’t this two-party, “right” and “left” paradigm we have great? Aren’t we all happy that we’re so well represented by this great system of “liberals” and “conservatives” that want only one thing? No, they don’t want to help you…geez, what do you think this is? No, they want to control you.
Once you boil it down to basics, it’s a matter of control.
The Democrats want to control you by selling you out to international interests, taxing you to death and telling you what you can and can’t do with your life, money, and property.
The Republicans want to control you by selling you out to corporate interests, inflation-taxing you to death, and by telling you what you can and can’t do with your life, money, and property.
Yep, I feel very represented by these people. I see a huge difference between Republicrats and Demopublicans and am happy to know that I’m helping spread the word about truth, democracy, and freedom in this land of opportunity. Yippee.
Wake up people and start shooting back! These assholes are taking you for a ride, raping you, and dumping you on the porch and all you’re doing is thanking them for it.
GET YOUR GUNS AND TELL THEM YOU AREN’T GOING ALONG ANYMORE! SHOW THEM THE WRONG END OF THE BARREL AND TELL THEM TO LEAVE YOU THE HELL ALONE! The time for playing along, politicking, and pretending that you can “change the system through the system” is over.
THE TIME TO START FIGHTING IS NOW. FIRE AT WILL!
