L-E-T-S G-O!

People are always asking me who I am backing in the next presidential election, what my views are and how I feel about certain issues. My knowledge of universal health care and the environment are widely praised in my circle of friends. I basically cannot go anywhere without being sought after for advice.

No, that never happens.

I never really discuss politics, unless it is with someone who I know is going to give me some factual answers on questions I have. The rest of my political life is solely based on the email forwards of Hillary Clinton making terrible faces that my mother sends me on a daily basis.


I really don’t like the whole debate and backing one candidate with all your soul and gnash out at the talk radio station when the opponents get their time to speak. It reminds me of sports. You have your team, and your side. Then the other team and the other teams star player who you hate, like the Yankees.

So, Hillary is like the Yankees. Some people love them and some people hate them. Most people who have an opinion at all have a strong one. The only difference is that while I hate the Yankees, they do have talent. While the talent of Hillary is up for debate.

Another thing. You may correct me if I am wrong, but it seems that there is only two leaders for the Democrats right now. And there are those who hate one and love the other and spend hours of face time on television spitting on other “experts” for their chosen favorite, come November you know those two people are going to join forces and spit on whoever the Republican choice will be. And the Republican side will do the same. It just seems that the running for that side is far less talked about.

So, I feel as though there is nothing I can do to further the American political system until November, and then I will vote for whoever I feel is best fit. But it probably will not be Mrs. Clinton. Wait that is not entirely true. I will try my best to take pictures of limos when the Republican Convention comes to my city in August. That is all I have to say.

    The Republican side is actually a bit more interesting right now and depending on the combo of who gets the nomination for their respective party, there might actually be some conflict and less spit throwing.

    I explained myself back on my blog.

    I suppose if McCain gets the nomination and Hillary does as well then it really doesn’t matter who I vote for. 😉

    Look, I’m not going to beg, but you know who to vote for. He’s raccoonish. There’s your hint. Oh, and Murph, it does matter. You know what to do.

    Oh no worries Key-I’m a loyal coon lover (that seems inappropriately worded).

    See, that’s the reason why I’m libertarian… I can hate all candidates equally and still blame everyone else when the president fails to live up to their promises (note the gender neutral pronoun!). And as much as I appreciate Bill Clinton’s AmeriCorps (in which I served two wonderful years) I wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton (or probably anyone because I am not going to the primary today at 1:00 due to homework and Halo 3). Apparently I am the swing-voter that MSNBC likes to refer to, but that term sounds dirty. But anyway, good job voicing your opinion, politics is a risky topic (because, as the old axiom goes, “Opinions are like a__holes, everyone’s got one.”). So kudo’s to you!
