  •  Feel free to vote for Obama (8+ / 0-)

    Please, feel free to vote for Obama if you like the government's policy of harassing, detaining and searching journalists who are asking questions about how that government functions.

      ...it's all really for the best
      ...  we must  accept that we are Helpless
      and besides "what choice is there?" ...

      By any standard a Republican administration would incorporate every disgusting civil liberties neglect that the Obama administration has visited upon some of us ... but would ALSO add a host of new and novel neglects and apply them to ALL of us ...  well, all of the 99.91 % of us who aren't Kochsuckers.

      If the Republicans win this election ... it'll probably be the LAST election having any impact or significance -- probably for the rest of the Century.

      If the Democrats win in 2012 ... there may still  be some hope for representative Democracy at some future date --  if not exactly "now."

      The choice is clear ...

      So why aren't we celebrating ?
