Romney's running mate energizes both sides... I bet it did.

This morning, Romney has introduced a unique stimulus package, where as selecting his running mate will create a wider sector for comedians, and thus generate more money for them, which will generate more tax revenue... 
It's called "Trickle Out Laughter Economics", where the steady pace of jokes will boost the economy...

As Romney and Obama, are pretty much identical in polices I didn't give a flying turd about who would win, short of not knowing if Ronmey is going to execute US civilians like Obama. Otherwise they are the same person, elitist, Machiavellian corporatists who works for the rich... Now I hope Romney wins, not for his policies or his beliefs because he can't make things any worse, but for the never ending jokes/memes to come.. If a president is going to be bad, at least let me have a good laugh for four years.. 

Think of all the no name cartoonists, that will be placed in the lime light for their clever work poking fun of a Mormon President, oh his policies are guided by his magic underwear..  Or the vbloggers who will move to doing stand-up comedy because they finally have prepackaged material for a 30minute stand-up set..


A Mormon President? what would the founding fathers think Mitt?!?! ah yes fixed by a Catholic VP...

"because he can't make things any worse"

You underestimate the potential retardedness of attempting to win over the average American voter.

Ryan's specialty is talking about the budget. I can see the electorate's eyes glazing over right now. And while he's a good speaker, he's almost as much a stuffed shirt cold fish as Romney is. Obviously, they have decided not to appeal to women or minorities at all. Two more stiff white guys. Plus, for all the animal lovers, Ryan is an avid bow hunter. Yeah, this choice will take them far...just not to The White House.

Fuck'em all. Let the nukes fly. Time to hit the big ol' reset button. There's no hope left for humanity.

Oh I sure don't underestimate either of them..  Romney, Obama, Bush, Clinton and Reagan all used propaganda on the weak minded, like a Jedi on a Storm Trooper looking for droids...

I look forward to the 'old time revolution'. So when do we convert Mitt to Mite?

Romney would be much worse than Obama.  Stop being a purist.  Do you really want to go back to the failed policies of Bush that gave us a worldwide recession?  Do you really want Romney and Ryan picking judicial nominees?  The judiciary is already so laden with right wing lunatics that it is very difficult for anyone not wealthy to get any justice or defend himself against injustice.  The republican party is the party of theocracy.  Any atheist who isn't working to ensure a democratic victory has lost his mind--his judgment, his sense of self-preservation, his sense of outrage over injustice, etc., etc.

I think a Republican atheist is a contradiction in terms, given the link between Republicans and gung-ho Christianity. They TALK about freedom, but what kind of freedom are they offering women in terms of reproductive rights? As mentioned, the courts are already heavy with Republican appointees with conservative views. The next presidential term will probably see at least one and possibly two justices leave SCOTUS. We need a liberal president in office.

What makes anyone think that our economic, political and social woes are a result of one side or the other? both serve the same "master", but the only difference is in the propaganda they use...  To me it's no different to exclude or punish one group, yet ignore the rule of law and have US citizens executed without due process. Obama, Bush el al are not kings stop worshiping them as such..
If you think either party cares about anyone who doesn't frequent major campaign donor parties, I'd say you're high off your ass...  fear-mongering works for both parties, one says "they're gonna take away your x, y and z!!!" but they never do, then the other party responds "Oh the other guy is going to impose a, b and c!!!" but never does.. all the while not giving a rats ass what you believe because they're going to do what is in their best interest and their close allies best interest..  The DNC uses social equality as their propaganda tool, the GOP uses religion..  

All it takes is looking at the major campaign donors list for both Romney and Obama, who's in their circle of friends and what companies their knee deep into...

Most of our current woes are a direct result of the Bush presidency.  The republicans deregulated the financial industry and failed to enforce the rules that were in place.  They started an illegal, unprovoked and unnecessary war in Iraq that has beggared our treasury.  They bungled the war in Afghanistan badly because they were more concerned with getting Saddam because he tried to kill Bush's daddy.  Currently, the republican party consists of an unholy alliance between theocrats who want to subvert our Constitution and libertarians who actually believe that totally free markets work--in spite of the historical facts to the contrary.

If you think Obama caters to the wealthy, then explain why he expended so much political capital on health reform.  Who could he possibly have been trying to please with that?  Certainly not the wealthy.


Of course they have a lot of the same donors.  If you are in business, it is a good idea to hedge your bets and stay on good terms with both parties.  That's all that is going on there.  It's just the wealthy and corporations trying to make sure they will have the right connections in the coming four years.  What should matter to a voter is the philosophy of those running for office.  Theocracy is, in my opinion, the worst possible form of government and a direct threat to the existence of the human race.  If you are not more worried about that, then you should reconsider your priorities.
