For the third time this electoral season, I have had no interest in viewing the debates. To me they are about as beneficial as the national conventions for any party. Just giant circle jerks that do absolutely nothing to sway opinion of either candidate in our slowly fizzling republic.
Despite my disgust with the entire cycle of modern politics, I’ve done some moderate research about what was said at this most recent debate. Fact checkers on both sides of the imaginary aile of journalistic slant have come to a consensus of =~ 13:31 myths/lies/fairy-tales, Obama to Romney. Of these vast fabrications of the truth I found one particularly puzzling. Romney had willfully pointed out that Obama had failed to expand the coal industry as part of his clean energy plan. Fact checkers are quick to state that Obama has created 1,500 jobs in the coal industry. The funniest part is that neither candidate fully understands what the fuck clean energy means if they are including coal in the equation.
Clean coal does not exist. You cannot polish a turd (actually, mythbusters did it). The point remains however that even our best and brightest have been duped by clever PR coming out of any corporation who serves it up.
In the end, despite my lack of enthusiasm for truly either candidate, I find myself compelled to vote sincerely against Mitt Romney and his crusading sidekick. I simply will not tolerate another president who attempts to define America through what they are told in a church. This country was not founded on christianity-the founding fathers wrote passionately against it ever becoming such a place.
Though I disapprove of Barack Obama’s decisions on a multitude of issues, the fact that his interest in education, healthcare, and taxation equality show me as a citizen that even a bought out candidate can prove themselves worthy by sticking to the core moral issues of our time, instead of regressing backward by promoting ancient doctrines upon the constituency.
I have to go to class now. Toodles.
