Freedom's Just Another Word For Nothing Left To Lose

A President for all

THEY SAY NEVER discuss sport or politics in conversation but screw that. I happen to love sport (Go Celts!) and politics is something that is a little too important not to be discussed. Today Americans go to the polls to exercise their say and though I don't have a voice in the outcome as a frequent lover of the new world I hope to God they make the right choice.

On one hand you have a guy who is being blamed for an inherited economy from an administration that proliferated fear and tax cuts for the top 1%. Obama's biggest fault (though not his only one) is that he hasn't cleaned up an 8 year fuck-fest quickly enough. The other hand has the poster boy for everything that's currently wrong with the RNC and the single biggest reason I'm ashamed to be a white male. His biggest plus is that his running mate is worse...and can barely be classified as human.

Hands up for white (male) supremacy
& tax relief for my friends

These men preach freedom and democracy as foreign policy while at the same time are attempting to erode the freedom of half their own country's population can exercise over their own bodies.  Ask yourself this If this was a black or hispanic issue rather than a woman issue, would they be getting away with so much? Would it be seen for what it is?  White (male) supremacy anyone?  There is no excuse for supporting a part/politican/stance that attempts at every turn to justify and classify rape, vilify those seeking abortions or treat those unfortunate enough to find themselves on welfare like criminals on probation (Scott's piss take initative).  Republican candidates across the vast plain of the U.S of A are deeply out of touch - or would be if out of touch was the appropriate terminology.  The truth of the matter is that they are hideously out of date and belong in the dark ages, they are no greater evolved or enlightened than the ancestors who left Europe some five hundred years ago, all you have to do is take a long hard look at Rick Scott (Governor of Florida) to see what's rotten in their party.

Governor of Florida or Gentleman from
Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

The American President likes to call himself "The leader of the free world" and though there's a lot wrong with this soundbite it's downright laughable with a Republican in office who'll happily make sure that this notion of a "free world" doesn't extend to anyone with a cervix. 

Good luck America, go and have your say and remember Spike Lee...do the right thing!
