Have you ever felt like ol' Federalism just isn't what it's cracked up to be? Yeah, I'm a states' rights guy, but when it comes down to election time, the two-party system just gets me down...
What about proportional representation? Besides the fact that it's completely unconstitutional, what's the big deal? Let's just try it out for a while.... Could you imagine congress? California and New England would have their own red army in there, but they would be balanced out by Texas's and the midwest's congressmen with actual firearms. I guess a congress with actual ideological conflict would be better than a bunch of fat cats who sit around and play politics so they can line their pockets with gold.
What ever happened to America? Doesn't our constitution say a few things about liberty or freedom or something like that? The Dems will stick you in a Prius and make you suffer through state-run healthcare (and restaurants, and churches, and schools, etc.), while the Republicans will tell you who to marry (and what to smoke, and who to kill, etc.). Sometimes I think we haven't done much right since ol' Georgie boy left office (Washington, that is). Okay Abe Lincoln was pretty awesome, but didn't he suspend habeus corpus? (shhh... I've heard that's a pretty unpopular thing to do these days).
It's too the point where I actually decided to support BOB BARR..... uggg. The guy supposedly paid for his wife to have an abortion. SUPPOSEDLY. He's for making abortion a states' issue though, so I suppose that's what matters (he rationalizes to himself). I can't see myself supporting John McCain, closet liberal. I definately can't support HIS ALMIGHTY LORDSHIP DESCENDED UPON US FROM ON HIGH, SHAH barack hussein obama, MAY HIS NAME BE PRAISED FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA, AND FROM THE RISING TO THE SETTING OF THE SUN FOREVERMORE, AMEN. Although he does believe/hope in changing the future for the good of all of the people who also hope to believe in the goodness of the future without naughty McDonalds or the shame of Wal-Mart. You know, the bastions of industry that supply the stupid, ignorant, inarticulate, writhing masses of gun-hoarding, God-fearing hayseeds of America with employment and artery-clogging McNugget goodness. Which brings me to my next point....
LIBERALS: condescending, guilt-ridden, gullible, arrogant, afraid, appeasing, lazy, did I say condescending?
NEO-CONS: bullies, arrogant, ignorant, artless, nosy, self-righteous, fascist
MODERATES: three from the liberal category + one from the neo-con category
LIBERTARIANS: three from the neo-con category and one from the liberal
ME: a smattering of all of them
THE BOTTOM LINE: IN A TWO-PARTY SYSTEM, NO ONE IS TRULY REPRESENTED
