McCain=Obama: My one political post
Here's what I don't get about America. We have people who seem to think that these two are polar opposites when a careful examination shows they are fraternal twins. The 'issues' that are claimed to separate the two are manufactured by people within each party. Electing either one of these career politicians is not a vote for change but a vote for the perception of change. Yet, we are stuck with an idiotic two-party system. In part this is because the american electorate has succumbed to the notion of either/or and they manufacture issues in order to make differences seem real. If Obama wins, we get no real change. If McCain wins, we get no real change. In spite of this we get rabid arguments about the patriotism, religious beliefs and experience of each of the candidates as if it really matters. This election, like the last, the one before that and then one before that is all about a politician seeking to cement their legacy. Our apathy has led us down a path were real vision is lacking and real leadership is an illusion.
