I not only have to watch Senator Lindsay Graham on television, I have the sad misfortune of having him for my Senator. I have Bob Inglis, Jim DeMint and Lindsay Graham, for my Representative in Congress. Three of the most unenlightened men that ever walked the corridors of the Capitol. All of them are hell bent on getting as many Americans killed and trashing this Constitution as fast as they possibly can. I get letters back from them on different issues that I write to them about, and I get answers that say in effect; "Thank You for writing, but I am going to support this Republican President in everything he does because I believe in Jesus, Apple Pie, and George W. Bush". I might as well have Donald Duck representing me. I knew that when I moved to South Carolina that I wasn't going to "fit-in". I don't care. I spent a career in the military and that gives me the right to damn well live anywhere I want. Graham is a Col. in the Reserves. I give him credit for that. If he supports this war so damned much, I believe that they should send him over there. He should volunteer, it would look on his resume. Come to think of it, that's a really good idea. When he comes back he can run for President on that very issue. He can use the slogan "I bombed and strafed the evil-doers for my country". That should pick him up a few votes. I tell you what, if it's between Clinton or Obama, I'll take Graham. At least I know who Graham is. Clinton and Obama are two worthless politicians that represent everything I hate about this country. They are just about the biggest Corporatists that have ever been in government. I want someone that represents the American people, not the Dow or NASDAQ. They will not move a goddamn muscle to help the average American that is getting raped by the price-fixing, monopolies that run this country. Almost every representative in Congress is a corporate slave, kissing the corporate ass for that almighty dollar. Just nasty corporate whores that babble about democracy while they satisfy their corporate "Johns". These are people that would sell out their best friends for a chance at power. Money and power, the two words that make our representatives tick. They might strut like peacocks and act like the world is at their feet, but all they really are, what they can't admit about themselves, just as a whore that will demean herself for a crack rock, is that they will do anything for that corporate backing. Anything that will get them their own type of crack which is power. They are no better than crack whores, both will do whatever to get their fix. That is what we elect to serve us in congress. When all is said and done, we are just a means to an end. As long as we continue to pull that lever next to their names, they will continue to get their fix. So we continue to worship these power whores that the corporate entities give us to vote for. What is it about Obama that fits the corporate bill? Why has he become the darling of the mainstream media ? The MSM which is also run by the corporate king makers? What do we know about this guy? Who crowned him? What did he do for the average American? What is Hillary's claim to fame? Who says that they are the front runners? They are both just Freshman Senators with no record, what makes them #1 on the hit parade? This is how it works; they are the front runners if the media says they are the front runners. When all is said and done, it is corporate America that will pick that person that who is to be the chief corporate whore. The one that jumps when they say jump. The good ones don't ask why when told to jump, they ask how high. We go on, blithely ignorant of the true nature of the game. But are we truly ignorant, or are we just pretending ignorance so that we don't have to become involved? Pretending ignorance so that we don't have to open our mouths and god-forbid we might be wrong about something? That we have to participate in anything as nasty as politics is really better left to someone else. Who wants to dirty their hands with such things? So there we have it. Right now we are told that Hillary and Obama are the ones that will be the frontrunners in a game that leaves nothing to chance. We nod our heads and go on pretending that we actually live in a democracy when we really know that we don't. Just like Hillary and Obama know that they are nothing special, they have received the "Corporate Coronation", they are really nobody's hero. This is the game we play in America. It's called Democracy. But its only called that, it's really something else.
