It’s hard not to get that room spinning stomach churning feeling if you’re paying attention to politics these days. Particularly if you’re a conservative. Which I am. I’m still going to vote for Hillary if she wins the Democratic primaries. Which makes me a little green around the gills.
Why would I do such a thing? Because to be quite frank I have a one eyed dog that gives me far more confidence than any of the conservative candidates. Faux heroism, intellect, and morals do not sway me, and none of the Republican candidates have a realistic plan to place America back on a track worthy of the people that reside here.
Lets start with McCain. The only thing he has going for him is he was a war hero. He consistently goes against the will of the people in his policy ideals, and like it or not that makes him a very bad employee. The heroism thing is even a huge stretch to a thinking person. Lets face it; the man volunteered to drop bombs on civilians in a soveriegn nation. He was shot down during this criminal endeavor, and granted was treated horrendously during his captivity. News flash….drop a bomb on my kids and see if you’re asking me to pass the canapes when I catch your sorry ass. Like it or not, the true heroes of Vietnam were the conscripts that went and fought a war for no other reason than their government told them to. Or even my personal favorite, Muhammad Ali, who faced prison rather than to go against his beliefs. McCain was no hero. He merely persevered through trying times that his own actions set in motion.
Mighty Mike Huckabee. I know this will offend some of you, but I believe his god is a case of mythology run amok. I believe in him the same way I believe in Prometheus and Thor. I do not want to be led by a man who bases his decisions on a god that has no more connection to reality than do Hercules and Hermes.
Giuliani and Romney….I put these two together because they are both the same sort of individual. They have proven to say whatever they need to in order to get what they are after. Puissant pandering does not a president make, and while they have both had limited experience making things function at the state and local level, neither has any proven ability to lead a nation in a world that is somewhat more complicated than running the olympics or taking credit for the hard work of others after what has been dubbed a national (an incredibly localized I might add) tragedy.
Then there is of course Ron Paul. I I’d like to vote for him. I’d also like to ravage the swedish bikini team in a large vat of vanilla bean ice cream slathered in chocolate syrup. Fantasy is cool, but hardly intelligent when it comes to casting your vote. The man has never built a coalition in his entire congressional career. Not a track record for change.
So I’m left with Hillary. Barack has the least experience of any candidate. Voting for Barack is sort of like hiring a dishwasher to change your head gasket. I can’t see it. About the only thing he seems to have going for him is his tint. Hillary on the other hand was intimately involved with an administration that balanced the budget, increased the net worth of each American family, and managed to enact legislation that produced the strongest economy America has experienced in decades. Her husband has been labelled a racist by Obama because Obama needs Bill to be a racist. All the facts show that he isn’t, and that his administration fought for minorities and made their lives better. This even though he was saddled with a congress dominated by the Republican party through most of his administration.
So there you have it. I’m voting for the girl with the big butt. It’s not an easy thing to do, but based on history she is the only one that has any knowledge of how to build a coalition that is capable of changing the course this country is on.
