Last presidential election I voted for Obama because I along with the majority felt like the Republicans were too damned full of themselves, to say the least. But I did not feel much better about Obama. This is called picking the lesser of two evils. It seems like we have lost a real choice anymore in politics (if we ever had any?), picking the lesser of two evils is not much of a choice; thus many simply don't vote; but Bush and McCain brought out some voters, not to vote for them but against. So if the next Republican doesn't come off too blatantly arrogant and the American media wants it, I'm sure he'll get in, because it will not stimulate anyone to vote accept the usual shareholders in the Republican thing. Where is a good alternative plan? Does it exist? Why are the many alternative parties so unpopular? Is it a lack of money? Is it mainstream medias stranglehold on the American mind? ..and can the Third Parties come together as one? Or is it time to turn the clock back and all become more independent of the government and the corporations and be more self sustainable raising our own foods and such? Divided we are conquered - United we can do anything.
