Not to Get All Rock the Vote on You...

But it looks like Texas liberals actually have a say in something this year. Can't wait. And by the way, the primaries are open in our state, meaning that as long as you're a registered voter, you can go to your polling place on March 4th and ask for the primary ballot for either party.

I don't vote because my family's poor and on dope.
I do, however, spend time at poetry slams and posting my skills on message boards.
And in this way, I hope to change this fucked up system.

Asshole 9:24- please provide said charts and shit.

Anyone with a brain knows better. For the rest, if you want more of the same politics, vote McCain or Clinton. If you want a voice for change, vote Sen. Obama.

Yes, you will not get everything you want. The country will not transform into paradise. But we can change the dynamics of the last 20 years by rejecting the idea that only Bush-Clinton polarization can run this country.

Or maybe it's easier to sit it out and complain and feel smug about being "above the process."

The level of your ignorance is embarrassing. Osama Bin-Laden was born in 1957, just 4 years before Barack Obama was born. Why would they name their child after a 4 year old. And while Saddam Hussein was born in 1937, he had achieved nothing by 1961 when Barack was born.

People like you are an embarrassing plague on the earth. You cite no facts, no truths, and want to indict someone for no good reason. I can only conclude you are a Hillary Clinton supporter since everyone knows the Clintons will stop at nothing in their naked power grab for their own selfish means.

Ummm.... sure I can. The muslim rumors have gone on since the beginning of his candidacy. Being an Obama supporter, I've watched in amazement as the viral-rumor story unraveled, including the lengthy rebuke that is still on his website.

I made a joke because I thought some people who are Obama supporters might have a sense of humor. But if you have to explain the joke... it's obviously not funny... my bad.

agree with 1:53 - what exactly is the platform obama is running on? does he have any sort of non-superficial take on any? foreign policy, education, health care?

his response to everything is "Yes, we will change health care in this country!" "Yes, we will change education in this country!"

2:13 PM  
Anonymous stonedranger said...

well first of all, we can ask the same question about every one of the candidates. Certainly Hillary Clinton hasn't made her positions any clearer than Obama's, and I don't think John McCain even knows what his positions are at this point, other than more of the same Bushesque foreign policy, corporate handouts, and rewards for greed and national self destruction.

Do I support Obama? Yes. Do I know the specifics of where he stands on every issue? No. Do I even know exactly where he stands on most issues? No. But the fact remains that at the end of the day, the specifics of his health care plan won't really matter since there is no way that any president's proposed health care plan will be implemented without specific changes. I just know that he is planning on an open and wise foreign policy, and that he somehow manages to inspire people who haven't felt a part of American government for a long time. And the more people that wake up in this country, the better.

This is just a brief summary of my thoughts on him, but we all know how corrupt and inefficient our government has become, and at this point, any candidate that is able to make a message of change resonate among voters is a step in the right direction, if not a solution to our myriad of problems.

You can't make America "stronger" without hurting people, within and outside your borders, no matter how you dress it up on your website. It's not possible. I'm all for turning people onto change...I just don't understand how the hell anyone really thinks the change can come from a god damned election. You wanna talk about some grassroots change, talk to your friends, live life how you wanna live it. That creates real, tangible change. And it works. It spreads. Why funnel human growth and change into an election process of the richest, most powerful, steamrolling government ever? The goal is to become more powerful. This makes no sense to me. Keep doin what you're doin, you know. This website is a great example of something positive with humanity. You can't beat the establishment. We will be taken outside and shot during the Big War before any President makes any sort of difference. Live life with love so more kids can rise from the rubble and keep the Earth movin.

If you really think voting does not matter then think about how different the world might be if George Bush(and the truly evil corporations pulling his strings) had not been in office for the past 8 years. No Iraq war. America included in the kyoto treaty. Possibly a way smaller deficit increase.

I have personally made the leap of faith to get behind Obama. If he blows it and we have more of the same I will be right there with you, but in the meantime I choose to hold on to hope. Hope that things don't have to be as bad or corrupt as they are. That element is always gonna be there on some level, but Bush has taken the level of corruption to new heights never befor seen in this country.

At the end of the day I would like to see a Bill Maher/John Edwards ticket......kidding.....sort of.

Elderigde....not taking issue with the rest of your post, 'cuz that's a larger argument, which I'm still having with myself, but in my own (limited) understanding, Bush was not voted into office, at least the first time....hell, all the investigation into voting machinery, allegations of corruption in the ranks of the democratic and technological processes, suspect persons involved with the ballot process, the above mentioned florida situation and others like it, and such, calls into question the legitimacy of many American elections in the 21st century, and in my own paranoid mind, probably before...
So, not to rain on any parades, but I believe the fact that W is in the White House at all, far from being proof that your vote counts more than ever................is proof that your vote counts less than ever.
Not to disrupt the audacity of your hope....it was, after all, the final morsel released from pandora's box...

"No welfare for illegal aliens. Americans have welcomed immigrants who seek opportunity, work hard, and play by the rules. But taxpayers should not pay for illegal immigrants who use hospitals, clinics, schools, roads, and social services.
End birthright citizenship. As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be citizens, the incentive to enter the U.S. illegally will remain strong."

Since when were hospitals, clinics, schools and roads considered "welfare?" Americans welcome immigrants who "play by the rules?!" And you're telling US to educate ourselves. If you support Ron Paul, you support institutionalized racism, and you support yet another home school advocacy right wing nut who has somehow convinced a bunch of young internet dudes that's he's cool and shit. A republican is a republican. Don't dress it up. Don't try to put one over on me because you don't support the war, mostly for selfish economic reasons than anything else.


I don't really like Bill Maher but he did say this:

On College Republicans-

"Doughy losers who, at age twenty, care more about tax cuts than girls. And lately they've been holding these "Catch an Illegal Immigrant" parties around the country where they basically play hide-and-seek with one lucky player posing as the wetback.

Thanks for the reply.

I have to admit, there are a few things I don't agree with Ron Paul on, but the things I do agree with outweigh those. For instance, he is pro-life, which I am not. However, he wants to put those issues more directly into the states' hands, rather than deciding that on a federal level. That's my biggest issue, this huge out of control government we've gotten lately.

I'm still not sure exactly how I feel on the whole immigration issue, as there are pros and cons to both views. We're just in a dangerous position right now, as far as the future of our country goes, and it seems like scaling back and focusing on our own problems are what's most important (I realize this is an extremely general statement, but don't wanna get long winded on this).

If the Prolife vs. Pro-Choice debate (on either side)is the most important issue to you, you desperately need to rethink your priorities.

For one, that shit was settled decades ago. People need to move on and worry about the issues that haven't been dealt with like Education(including sexual, which would lead to less abortions), Health care(Less abortions through birth control), and ending that stupid fucking war(an abortion of diplomacy).
