Republicans-you had your opportunity to make change during the primary season. You had the chance to vote for a man that would revitalize the party, a man that would make a person proud to be both an American and a republican. That man was Ron Paul. Now, today, you have given us the choice of evil. This choice-John McCain-is a half-hearted attempt to uphold the status quo. Barack Obama is also evil. In my mind, it is difficult to differentiate between the two candidates. I will say, though, that I have grave concerns about an Obama administration. My concerns revolve around constitutional rights, especially the right to bear arms and free speech.
Has anyone noticed the atypical reactions of an Obama supporter? They do not seem to understand why they support their candidate. Some seem to like to blindly scream racism when you question his policy. They scream “HOPE” and “CHANGE” without intellectualizing what the catalysts for those words are. They repeat mantras that can seem very scary, and their treatment of Obama as Messiah is downright frightening.
Another factor that concerns me is the likelihood of a complete democratic party domination. Does anyone honestly want one party to control the legislative and executive branch? Do you realize what the ramifications of this are? Nobody to keep things in check, one party controlling all.
I voted third party, as both parties have become insignificant to me. The bailout is a perfect example of this. I will not serve two parties that refuse to serve me. I do not believe in taxation without representation.
Congratulations, republicans-you didn’t work to enact change when you had the opportunity. Congratulations, democrats-you might get more change than you bargained for. In the end, we all lose…and history will show that the few that knew better will indeed be correct.
