This is for the most /feels/ right on.

The irony of course is that the person who most vocally, most recently
made this argument is the child-of-priviledge, Ivy League,
not-very-bright fratboy C student sitting in the white house.

I can't decide whether I approve of a /smart/ lying politician or a
/dumb/ lying politician. But certainly, if the choice is between Bush
Jr. and Clinton, those are the choices.

People need to vote their conscience, be that Republican, Democrat,
Libertarian, Green, or whatever. The two party system has reached a
point where it actively SUSTAINS things that are problems, rather than
trying to solve them.

This is why I voted for Nader.
