A friend and I sat having breakfast recently when the subject of the election came up. We spoke of how everyone we knew was elated over the Obama win, even overseas people were rejoicing. We also talked about the possibility that the entire election process was just another lie perpetrated on the American people. Huh? What?
Never happen? A Stupid Idea, you say? Perhaps. Yet, when you think about it, It all seemed so faked.
I don't understand why the Republican party couldn't have come up with someone better than an aging politician with no real ideas on how to fix the Bush created problems; Indeed, a man that chose as his running mate an unknown woman from Alaska, a woman whose main role was to pacify those hoping to elect a woman, like Hilary? Could it have all been just be a ploy?
And, Sarah Palin, poor fool that she is, was used by them, they knowing that she was expendable, and that there was never any real chance of them winning, or that chance being so minimal as to be nil.
Yet, there had to be a show so that the people would feel as though they had a part in the selection, that their voice was being heard. And, what a show it was. More money was spent on this election than any election in our history. Was it ever really a contest? Who knows? We may never know.
However, Sarah Palin didn't deserve to be used in such a way. But, that's politics for you. I believe McCain knew. He had to know. It was all so beautifully orchestrated. I believe McCain was in on it and that he was well paid for his part. His family will be well cared for after his death for many years to come. Which, by the way, is not too far off, a fact that he and they (the Republican Party) were all well aware of, no doubt.
I think the Republican Party knew they had no chance of winning. Bush had killed any possibility of that. So, they pick a man to stand in and give the American people a show they will not forget for a long time, a show that will make them feel good and keep them from realizing it was all a sham. A sham because Obama has already shown that he will be utilizing those who were running against him, like Hilary Clinton, and Lieberman. Let's just keep it in the family. The reporters are all saying how smart these moves are. Maybe. But it seems a bit strange that he is choosing the very people who have spoken out against him. Is this to appease them so they will be thankful and more likely to fall in line? Or perhaps, it was all prearranged.
I'm glad that Obama won, as if there was any doubt. He is brilliant and I believed he would make an excellent president. But, I can't get over the feeling that we have, once again, had the wool pulled over our eyes. It could just be that nagging doubt I have come to expect from the politicians that have been lying to us for so long. Things just don't add up.
Of all the people the Republicans had to choose from they choose an aging man in his seventies, suffering from skin cancer and an unknown woman with no real experience and a lot of personal problems that remain unexplained to the satisfaction of the American people. Is it her baby? I doubt it. Any woman who has had as many babies as Palin has can't go through a pregnancy without anyone knowing about it. The muscles don't retain their original shape after being stretched out so many times. I know, I've had four myself and I was a demon when it came to exercising to regain my former shape. Never happened. Each successive pregnancy was harder and harder to hide. Did her daughter keep this secret info from her? Probably, this would account for the late announcement of "her" pregnancy, a pregnancy that not one of her staff knew about: Which means she lied. And, then there's the "library issue...book banning", and the stuff about...well, you get the idea. Palin was just too radical in her ideals. Stack her and "Lumpy" up against the perfect family that Obama appears to have and Biden and the choice is simple.
Palin, with a pregnant unwed teenager, maybe for the second time and preparing for a shotgun wedding to an unwilling teenage boy, a baby with special needs, (when will she find time to do her vice presidential duties once she learns what they are?) OR, Obama, a man of superior intellect with two beautiful, well behaved, un-pregnant, girls who obviously respect their parents.
I, for one, just couldn't envision a woman with five kids, one a special needs baby, being that close to the Presidency. Has the Republican Party lost its mind or was this really the best they could come up with? It was like a tower of cards. Sooner or later bound to topple, perhaps bringing down the country with it. Palin's lust for power is well known and poor McCain may have soon felt the way Caesar felt when Brutus plunged the knife into his back. Et tu, Palin? Palin has a tendency to eliminate those in her way.
In the end it was no surprise to McCain that he lost. He graciously ceded to Obama and that was that. Palin looked to be on the verge of crying. She had set her high hopes on an unattainable prize that was ripped away from her in the end. All through the election process the McCain camp continued to build her hopes to keep her in the game. All for what, another fat lie to keep up appearances? Would she have been so "Gosh darn betcha" willing to continue the façade if she had been aware of the fraud?
Okay, I might be wrong. And, I hope I am. However, my belief in our political system has been gravely shaken. The Bushites' election fraud left a bad taste in my mouth that I may never get rid of. We were played like pawns in an overly long game of chess.
Obama is now our hope for a better future. I pray he isn't taken in by the crooks that are so clever at hiding within our political folds. But, then again, I hope he isn't one of the crooks. I was hoping he was going to do something about the Bushites, only now, it appears, he is going to let this slide into the 'past of forgotten deeds'. Was he being groomed by the Bushies? They don't actually care anything about parties, they only wanted the control.
Did they pull another one over our eyes, knowing we were not about to elect another Republican anytime soon, did they put up someone they had been grooming for the position > Someone who would keep them safe from prosecution while at the same time giving the people some hope for a better future?
