I Think it is Telling

I think it is telling when the “better educated” people, as the media polls call them, favor Obama and the “less educated” people prefer Clinton. That should speak volumes as to whom the Democrats should elect. Obviously the “educated” people know who is the better choice.
If we get Obama vs McCain, I will vote for Obama, if it is McCain vs Clinton I think about moving out of the country but in the meantime vote 3rd party. If it is Obama vs Huckabee… well, that is likely not to happen, I’ll decide in the booth between 3rd party and Obama, unless of course that 3rd party choice is Ron Paul where Ron Paul is the clear choice…
Here is my current run down:
Ron Paul
Anybody but Clinton or McCain
The Libertarian choice if it isn’t Ron Paul…
I think that keeps care of everyone. 🙂
As far as moving out of the country, it would likely be Vancouver, though I would really prefer New Zealand, and of course I already covered the city choices there in other posts.
Meanwhile, what the flip is up with Washington state stopping their counts and declaring McCain the winner before they were done counting? The vote count was close enough, with enough votes left uncounted that the whole thing stinks. If I were a Washington voter, I would be highly pissed. Did the vote counters look at the uncounted ballots and see that Huckabee or Paul were going to win and decided to leave them uncounted? It is one thing for a network to declare a winner before the counts are done and the polls are closed (unlike 2000 where they declared a winner long before even the East coast polls were closed), but is another thing for the officials to declare a winner before they are done counting and then stop counting.
Anyhow, I officially support Obama, after Ron Paul.

Evangelicals Look to Fuck the Country Over Again

Sorry for the curse words, but there is no polite way of putting it. The Evangelicals of Iowa decided to fuck over the country by pushing yet another person, who just like Bush, represents the Anti-Christ a billion times more then they represent Christ Himself. By simply claiming to be a Christian (or in Huckabee’s case being a pastor…which I know is more then a claim, but he clearly has lost his way since those days), they get the Evangelical vote, who clearly ignore their voting record, or the fact they are CFR members and a million other facts that show they are not the people to lead this country… and even if they actually are Christians, who cares? We are not electing a pastor, we are electing a President. See my series on You Can’t and Shouldn’t Legislate Morality Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
Perhaps Bush, Huckabee and many Evangelicals are Apocalyptic and trying to force the Apocalypse to happen. I know there are those out there who seem to think that by pushing things such as Bush’s plan to implant people with RFID chips, which Evangelicals see as the “Mark of the Beast”, and other predictions that have to happen before the Rapture/Apocalypse (whatever they may believe in individually, seeing that different Evangelicals interpret the events differently), perhaps they are trying to rush the process. Of course this means they are trying to force the hand of God, which just like legislating morality, places themselves above God.
Whatever. This country is clearly fucked regardless, short of one of two candidates getting elected, and neither one is likely to get their respective parties nomination.
Meanwhile, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Ron Paul did 10% in Iowa. Not too bad considering that is better then many expected, and it was far better then Giuliani, and that he focused far more on NH then Iowa. On the Democrat side, it is harder to say how the vote would have gone since all they are reporting is the second round, not the first choice. Meaning Kucinich may have had 10% himself, but the Dems have a 15% threshold, meaning below that and you have to vote a second choice, which for the Kucinich supporters would mean Obama. I expect Ron Paul to stick in until Super Tuesday before he considers dropping out. I am not sure about Kucinich, I would guess he’ll see how he does in NH first at least. Dr. Paul got more independent votes in Iowa then any other Republican, which would be as expected. I think this means good things for the good Doctor in NH where 40% are independent. Obviously it also means good things for Obama who ran away with the independents in Iowa.
New Hampshire is in 4 days now. Hopefully we’ll see far wiser people there then in Iowa.
I guess there is always Canada or New Zealand…
