I have been away from /. for over three years for this very reasons-too many cointelpros clogging up the echo chamber. I'm sick to death of you all! You know exactly who I'm fingering, and I expect my excellent karma to go to crap. Go to Hell!
On the other hand, the poster is exactly right, but think of what YOU are expecting of a candidate: media support by Rupert Murdoc, one who is entirely in league with control systems. A "Tough" stance on "dem arabs". Dotters, if someone mistrated you as henously as we have their countries, with the hubris we have, THEY would be smashed to bits! Trivia(?): Did you know we went to war with England over a centralized bank note system? Googled:"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to then Secretary of the Treasury, Albert Gallatin, 1802
You want another depression? Go wiki it. Hyperinflation: caused by central banking systems inflating monetary systems. We have already experienced higher debt rates than the depression, due to the fact our money comes with inflation built in! Precious metals are taking flight against the dollar, and you want to argue who looks best in a friggin' flight suit???
You want continual war(McCain says 100 years) that drives debt up the wall??? War for what??? The Pentagon already "lost" over $4 trillion, an ammount that could set every American for life.
ALL of you are rearranging the deckchairs!! What do you THINK caused all the calamity??? Some guy in a cave? How are we supposed to become more safe by giving up all our liberties?? Oh, I know! "They hate us because of our freedoms[, so if we kill all civil liberties, they wont hate us anymore!]" Someone forgot the chapter on "Those who give up essential liberty for security deserve neither!"-Benjamin Franklin
As if anyone cares, most people cant tell who the Vice Pres is(Dick-"I live in Dubai!"-Cheney).
All I can tell is you want another corporate bought-off candidate! "Electable"
This is the last pearl I dare give the swine
"Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
