McCain swept Florida last night and pundits are already exclaiming he is just a hair away from being crowned the Republican nominee. My personal problem on McCain has been his stance on Iraq. However, I do think if we pulled out all together right now the country would collapse into total chaos. The problem with that is, the war is what created the environment for that collapse in the first place. So now we find ourselves in the catch 22, damned if you do, damned if you don’t scenario. This is a situation which America seems to have such a penchant for putting themselves in.
Clinton won the Democratic vote by a landslide, which I found a bit disappointing since I have tossed my hat in the ring for Obama. Clinton collected 50% of the votes on the democratic side while Obama reigned in only 33%. Edwards slumped in at 14% and rumors are abounding that he will announce the end of his campaign sometime this evening. That announcement is also a disappointment since he seemed to be one of the few front runners taking a hard line stance on the corrupt nature of the current administration. I guess people are still too brain dead to receive that message.
The good news is that Giuliani’s dumb-ass, to-hell-with-the-middle-strategy, finally blew up in his face. He will bow out tonight as well. I think the guy is nuts, and I am very glad to see him go.
It will be sadly ironic if our nation ends up with the two pro-war, career politicians, with ties to previous administrations that our dumbed-down media predicted we would end up with. If that isn’t an indicator of how screwed up we are in this country, I don’t know what is. It appears the old saying, “Voters get the government they deserve,” may ring true at election time. I am still holding a candle for Obama however and praying we can put a new face on our government.
I hope none of you are asking yourself, “I came here for design news, why should I care about this?” If you are asking yourself that, it’s time to pull your head out of your ass and see the light of day. Get involved and start to care right now. It matters. This is your country. If you are registered, get out there and make your voice heard here in Colorado next Tuesday and think very hard about the decision you make.
