When I look at the choice you have in front of you in November I honestly feel sorry for you as a nation. And please, I don't mean that to be insulting. I don't hate Americans by any stretch. I believe you deserve better than this. Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin are the best that the Democrats and Republicans can offer?
I have to wonder if this combination of anger and helplessnes towards the political process amongst the educated class is anything like what your Founding Fathers were feeling in the early 1770s. I swear it is as good as taxation without representation. Do any of these yahoos really represent you? Do they really understand what the average person cares about? And are they looking to make any sort of improvement in your lives or in the lives of your children? I'm really beginning to see why Americans are as tax-averse as they are - Congress takes your money and doesn't really spend it on you. I don't love paying taxes, but at least I can see where a lot of it gets spent and how it makes an improvement in my daily life. You get a choice between the Giant Douche and the Turd Sandwich, both of whom have been presented to you by the money gleaned from special interest groups and lobbyists all looking to protect their own and spend your money.
Your nation has better and brighter to offer. They just can't break through the stranglehold that the Repos and the Dems have on the process - they might as well be Bloods and Crips, except they've divided up the turf and are just looking to keep things right the way they are. If there was a boat full of tea in Boston Harbour right now, I'd bet money on the cargo going over the side in the not too distant future.
