Vote, or Shut the Hell Up

     One of the things you learn to stop doing when you move to another country is bitching about politics.  You’re an immigrant, an outsider, and in most cases, you can’t hope to understand the nuances of another country’s politics.

     Unless you’re an extremely astute bastard, like Craig Ferguson.

     He also re-iterates a point I’ve made a billion and a half times: if you didn’t excercise your Right to vote, then you Lost your Right to Bitch.  e.g. if you didn’t vote in the last election, no one cares about your disdain and comdemnation — STFU!

     Plain and simple.

     Oh … And if you’re a Senator who didn’t even bother to show up and vote on all the Resolutions you were supposed to vote on because you’re too busy blazing a campaign trail, you’re a total Asshat!  Not only do these Senators have a responsibility to vote on these issues, it’s their duty and their job to do it — especially when it’s a bill that’s at the heart of their campaign promises.
     And it’s interesting to note, when you go down the Voting Records to see that the Head of one of our two major political parties pretty much hasn’t voted on anything in like … eight years?  Apparently, the Jackass that represents him is a little more personal…

    This time around its been particularly difficult for me to determine who I want to vote for… and I’m sure I’m not alone.

    Both sides seem to want MOST of the same things… but very different ideas on how to get us there. (much like the male/female plight)

    Obama… who wants all this change and had been so vague about the details, has finally laid some cards on the table. (I am curious about where all the $$ will come from to do all this though)

    McCain’s site has also been very helpful. To the right, in grey, are his details on the issues

    I’m just glad about ONE thing… my uterus is no longer in the FOREFRONT of a presidential debate.

    That’s true, it’s no longer the FOREFRONT of a presidential debate … because everyone’s too busy focusing on Sarah Palin’s.
