So, now who are you going to vote for in 2012?

I'm going to inform you, yet, again, of who you can and cannot vote for in 2012 and what the differences will be.

You can vote for Sarah Palin. You can vote for Barack Obama, if he's nominated. You can vote for Joe the freakin' plumber. You will receive the same results.

Oh, no, you say? There's this great big difference between Democrats and Republicans?

If you believe that, you are a lost cause. No matter who gets the most stupid electoral votes or who gets the most popular votes, the nation will progress in exactly the same way.

Maybe some left wing radio head will say, "Don't vote for the third party candidate. If you do, then the Republicans will win."

And what will happen if the Republicans win?

We won't get a universal health care plan that takes care of us like those of other industrialized countries?

We'll start another foolish war?

Get my drift or would you still rather continue to play baby games?

There is no government of The United States of America. There are no three branches of government keeping one another in line. We lost our government a long, long time ago.

Dennis Kucinich supported John Kerry in 2004. One of the first things that Kerry said he'd do is to increase the troop strength in Iraq, where we shouldn't have been in the first place. Kerry talked about the surge before Bush did. And Kucinich, who had the gall to read articles of impeachment against Bush supported the surge. He supported Kerry.

I don't hear anyone reading articles of impeachment against Barack Obama. He's sending troops to Afghanistan. He'll send them there whether or not Congress gives him the OK and/or the money to do so. That is against the law. He has no power to send troops into battle. Only Congress can declare war. He's as much committing an impeachable crime as did Bush's Regime.

Back to Kucinich. How can a person who consistently said we should never have gone to war in Iraq support a candidate who promised to increase those forces.

I wish Kucinich could really be elected president. Maybe then you will see that the president, the Congress and the Supreme Court are getting paid for doing what they're told. Kucinich wouldn't get his department of peace but he'd end up sending troops somewhere or he'd be assassinated.

Ron Paul. Oh, yeah, Ron Paul's a regular peacenik. I wonder how the view is from the cheap seats? Oh, no, Ron Paul wouldn't go to war. He's a good boy.
