This is NOT just another Election Buzz Piece...Because this will NOT be just another election

Electing a Supreme Commander

This is my third piece on McCain’s presidential aspirations, and I understand it might seem a bit….unmotivated considering how little the US elections matters what with the overall democracy deficiency.

It is true that I doubt any candidate is representative of the general public or stands for the best of the nation of the American people, and I doubt any election in US today can be called fair

But even so I need to do whatever I can to tell people that this time around one candidate is worse than usual, and that the presidency at stake is not the usual one either.

I am actually scared of McCain winning the presidency, because he will not just become just another president.

He will become the wet dream of the neocons and Bush on steroids, because the presidency of 2008 will not be the presidency of 2000.

As I described in previous pieces – "If you thought George Bush was bad when it comes to the use of military force, wait 'til you see John McCain." and The Silent Coup - How a nation ruled by law, becomes a nation ruled by men - the powers and opportunities that will fall in the hands of the next president, will make it more crucial than ever the intentions for which they will be used. And as always, you can not let the cult of personality fool you into believing you know what those intentions are.

The Visions of the Candidate
