Voter's Search for Truth vol 2

First stop in America's basic two party system, Democrats and Republicans. At first look, they may seem innocuous.  Do not be fooled!  I joke.  Seriously though, lets check out my first stop.  I started here.

The first thing I noticed was Mitt Romney's name on their banner twice.  My first thought was Isn't he a republican? Dingdingding I win!  He is.  I hate how easily mudslinging comes to these politicians now.  We call that talking shit where I come from, and its enough to get your mouth slapped off in some circles.  Anyhoo, 5 out of the 9 featured stories on their front page are about Republicans.  Strange that they are presenting themselves as advertising for the "other side".  That's it for a quick glance, onto something else.

Next it was onto GOP Headquarters.  Their front page was very crowded, but full of their own people.  About half of it looked to be current representatives complaining about either the president or current policies.  Isn't that always the way.  I find it hard to sum up this giant clusterfuck, so I will save it for the in depth look.

~ADD Break~  I swear I just saw some guy singing Eye of the Tiger on The Cobert Report.  *shakes head violently*  Weird.  Onto the next voter's choice!!

Steven Colbert decided to end his bid for President.  Sad day.

On to someone I had never heard of, Stewart Alexander.  They have a list of points which I can get behind, from affordable housing for everyone to legalizing marijuana and taxing it like cigarettes.  However, I see a big word that worries me.  SOCIALISM.  Granted I may have spent too much time with my McCarthy era grandparents, but that word gives me pause.  According to Dictionary.com, socialism is "a theory or system of social organization  that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole." Ok, that doesn't sound too scary.  Unless we don't get to pick who we work with, because I know a lot of lazy bastards around here.  Share and share alike is a great theory and works in small groups, but too many people are lazy assholes and think the world owes them a living.  Perhaps.  

Tata for now!  Next time, we'll finish looking at the independent candidates and then, the world!   Muahahahahaha!
