When the primaries come around, I’m pretty sure I’m going to vote for the same guy I voted for last time. Dennis Kucinich. I’ve thought about it, after considering Hillary and Barak, and this seems to be the a clear choice for me now. He’s the only candidate anywhere near my opinions. American voting has moved so far to the right that authoritarians all over the world have to look a little bit to the right to see our Democratic party.
It would be interesting, as some on the Internet are pushing, to see Ron Paul vs. Dennis Kucinich. I understand why many people support Paul, but I just can’t. He’s got too many opinions that I think would result in less social freedom. I appreciate the idea that government should just remain out of your life completely, but I don’t think freedom actually works that way. So I remain a largely anti-authoritarian liberal, desiring the government to get involved for social good, and especially when it can enhance freedom, rather than just stand aside and let people get more efficiently trampled.
But I wouldn’t mind seeing Paul make it to the general election because he at least seems honest, and I think some of the other choices are fairly evil.
The fact that Paul and Kucinich are getting so much attention this go-around is a testament to how deeply, efficiently, unceremoniously and blatantly Bush and the Republicans have screwed themselves (and us) over.
The Republicans should just change their name to the Torture a Spic for Jesus party and be done with it.
I think that sums up the platform well, and honesty is the best policy. Following that line of thought, we could be all relieved to finally see Roger Ailes come to his senses and rename the Fox News Channel to The Torture a Spic For Jesus Porn Network.
Of course every American knows that the Fox News Channel is, in actuality, Republican run party propaganda. I like to call it Republiporn. But wait! This supposedly conservative news station is also a good source of female skin and smut. See the video: Fox News Porn. This video is made of footage just taken from Fox news. You could probably claim softcore porn just on the dressing habits of the female talking heads.
I attribute the mainstreaming of pornography to our “conservative” friends at Fox. No wonder Ashcroft left the Bush administration. He was probably about to start investigating the websurfing habits at the Fox News studios.
