The ramblings of a Euro-gamer from South Dakota

McCain or Obama?

Posted by sodaklady on September 5, 2008

Republican or Democrat?

Conservative or Liberal?

Truthfully, I don’t follow politics because every time I read an article or watch a news feature I end up pacing the house in a rant. So much stupidity and self-interest in one city!

I am not registered as either a Republican or a Democrat since I choose a candidate by their beliefs and platform rather than a generalization of a Party. Sometimes I’m not sure that even the Party members know exactly what they stand for. The lines seem to blur sometimes.

And since I believe the government should change with the times rather than be stuck in some distant past, I guess I would qualify as a Liberal. I mean, when Ward sent the Beaver to his room, did he go there to call Lumpy on his cel phone or surf the ‘net or boot up GTA4 on his XBox? No, back in that day, he was sent there to think over his behavior. We can’t be stuck back in the ’50s just because they’re painted so beautifully on television; we have to change with the technology and the society we’re living in.

So with my background of ignorance explained, I will tell you my impression. It will be a sad day for America if McCain is elected. From the little I’ve read or heard, here’s my three top reasons why McCain is the wrong choice.

1. He wants to stay in Iraq until we win the war. Well, you may as well nuke the hell out of them right now because there’s no way you’re going to harness that team and get them to pull in the same direction.

2. He wants to build more nuclear reactors. Oh, sure, let’s poison our planet from the inside with nuclear waste because we’re not ruining it fast enough on the surface.

3. I’d hate to see the demand for wire coat hangers rise.

    [Stupid comment. Progress is being made and continuing. Whether it’s fast enough — or you could be reasonable in determining that — or worth the cost, are both rational concerns that stand on their own without rediculous hyperbole]

    2. He wants to build more nuclear reactors. Oh, sure, let’s [b]poison our planet[/b] from the inside with nuclear waste because we’re not ruining it fast enough on the surface.

    [Another ignorant, sensation remark. Nuclear reactors have a well established track record in Europe, having been used for decades without incident using modern designs and approaches. Their fuel disposal have not been problematic to the Europeans. All this requires MODERN thinking, not fear mongering rhetoric]

    3. I’d hate to see the demand for wire coat hangers rise.

    [Wow. with “reasonable” Ameriturds like you. Who need irrational people to deal with.

    P.S. Please stick to a subject that you can talk rational about, like gaming.

    Thanks for your comments. It’s nice to know someone is reading even if you don’t agree. In America everyone is still free to voice their opinions. Too bad you couldn’t have expressed yourself without being rude and insulting.

    I’m beginning to see politics as nothing more than a game, with the party nominees as nothing more than tools for the party itself. Even Obama is now talking about “winning the war,” and finding and killing Osama bin Laden. I guess whatever you can do to win over the undecided voters is what’s necessary, eh?
