scattershot political rant

It's Super Tuesday Eve! Everyone, think very carefully today about your choices, then go out tomorrow and have your say. I have a lot of thoughts jiggeting about in my brain right now, including:

  • why is everyone a Socialist?
  • why do people want to give more power to a government that already does a crap job at almost everything it does?
  • what is people's problem with Mitt Romney? I'm not crazy about him, but I guess if an adulterous megalomaniac, a duplicitous robber baron and a diabolical hayseed all hate you . . .
  • mandated health care is a monstrously stupid idea
  • but there's got to be a better way than health care tied to your employment
  • why do we deal with health in such a reactive way?
  • why aren't people rewarded for taking care of themselves, instead of killing themselves?
  • why am I supposed to be so thankful for tax cuts, when IT'S MY MONEY IN THE FIRST PLACE, JERK
  • why is it the government's job to take care of everything?
  • I don't know how I would even begin to deal with illegal immigration--we are a country of immigrants (and frankly, I believe it's given us hybrid vigor), but things are a right mess.
  • why are we so wasteful?
There's more where that came from, but my main concern is that we sift through all the goobers running for president and attempt to find the least goobery.

It sounds like you have a lot of anger...

least goobery, indeed.

I'll see your jiggeting and raise you with:

*why am I selecting delegates who will then just go with the majority in the end anyway? can't the popular vote just be counted?

*is it ok for me to dislike Hillary because her voice annoys me and I'm frightened to allow Billy back in the White House?

*why is the mainstream press pushing McCain so hard lately? how much power does the media REALLY have?

ok, I'm off to vote...

Why do we, as a people, insist on giving the government more control over our personal lives? In fact I think it is safe to say that as a nation it is being more and more termed as our "right" to things. Evidently, the revolutionary war was pointless. Do you think that people really just want to be parented? Where did our pioneering spirit go? Is it because there is so much self-centered concern over what I can get for me?

Huckabee is an idiot. Amen.
