The Lessor of Two Evils!
Who should you vote for?
With the upcoming Presidential election and primaries in full force, who really is the best candidate running to become the leader of this great country of ours? They all have their high points and they all have their low points. It’s just too bad that their low points outweigh their good points. And believe me; this is true of all of the candidates running for President. As a matter of fact, I think that this is true of the majority of every Presidential candidate throughout the history of the United States.
With this in mind, the question in deciding who to vote for should be “Who is the lesser of two evils?” Not “Who is the best candidate to lead our country?” Not “Who will actually do what they promised during their campaign once elected?” Because once they are elected to the Presidency, their own agenda will take over anyway and all the campaign promises go right out the window or into the circular file cabinet. If you really believe that any politician running for any office is actually in it for the betterment of the people, then you need to wake up and smell the coffee. Because anyone that actually does run for a political office who in his heart really does do it for the betterment of the people, won’t get elected anyway. The governmental committees will make sure of that. Neither the Democrat nor the Republican National Committees want someone who is running with the overall betterment of the people in mind. They want someone elected who will increase their overall power and fatten their wallets. And they will do whatever they can to make sure this happens. Basically, the person who ends up winning the election is in reality the best bull hacker with the most charisma, and who the party itself has the most to benefit from.
For the Democrats, the race between Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton is a perfect example. Right now, it is a very tight race and is anybody’s ball game. Obama, has a ton of charisma and draws huge crowds to all of his political rally’s everywhere that he appears. He is a very good speaker and knows exactly what the people want to hear and that’s what he is going for. But, his downsides, in my opinion outweigh his charisma. His complete lack of any legislative achievement, and blatantly leftist voting record while he presents himself as some sort of bi-partisan agent of change, concerns me. Clinton on the other hand, is a former first lady who stayed married to her philandering husband only because she didn’t want to jeopardize her own political ambitions. As a senator in New York, she really didn’t do much “for the people” while in office. She claims that she has the most experience in the White House and while this may be true, being the wife of a President doesn’t mean that she has the qualifications to be “the” President of the United States?
For the Republicans, John McCain has already won the Republican nomination. McCain has a reputation for a hot temper and has a clear militarism attitude. He has a military background and is for the war in Iraq. He is against any major gun control, and has an anti-public health voting record. He is a good speaker and knows what buttons to push to get the attention from the voting public.
So the question as to whom or which party should you be voting for? Who do you consider to be “The Lesser of Two Evils?”
