if ya'll are asking, this is who i am supporting in this election.
i cannot support candidates who support wiretapping, who support taking troops out of one war just to put in another (iraq to afghanistan), who supported a vague terrorist act (s. 1959), who support the continuation of the embargo on cuba, who are not going to change the face of health care to make it FREE to this country's citizens, who propose installing a 'secret police' system just as 'good' as the military, who avoid discussing the genocide of people in the gulf coast (via katrina), who avoid discussing the oppression of political prisoners, who avoid discussing the terrorism that exists for people like the jena six and sean bell (and their loved ones), who avoid discussing the so-called 'government's implication of the drug war (aka placing drugs in predominately black communities), who attend conferences like the bilderberg one in chantilly, virginia... who dare not critique what occurs at events like the RNC (it's 1968 in chicago all over again)...
i cannot support ANY candidate in ANY of the major parties (who are essentially merged into one party). if you feel comfortable with voting for them and you can wake up in the morning proud of your vote, by all means, do that. i am not here to argue with you. but me, i would feel like i wasted my vote, because i did not vote with conviction. i do not vote by 'lesser than two evils' theory.
as has been already said by others, 'what color (and at this point gender) do you want your imperialism?'
