THINK IN TERMS OF POLITICAL PRACTICALITY

I heard at work one voter say that he voted for Bush because he thinks we needed to go into Iraq and annihilate so many Iraqis that the rest could not possibly represent any resistance to our being there, taking their oil, and setting up bases to go after Iran.

I admitted that certainly such a plan would solve many of our problems in the Middle East. . . . But try to find a President that would do that. For sure, even Bush wasn't going to be willing to annihilate that many people. Maybe if my fellow worker could find a Hitler to vote for, his plan could succeed. But unless we were willing to annihilate all those Iraqis, then the best course of action would be not to invade Iraq in the first place.

The same reasoning governs immigration and the growing Latino population. . . . . . . I think, overpopulation is one of America’s and the world’s biggest problems. But unless we have candidates, or perhaps a President who is willing to tackle overpopulation as a problem, then why vote for a Republican. Somewhere is this illusion that the Republicans will go against their Corporate Masters and crack down on immigration, but they have shown no real interest in doing so.

So therefore, why vote against our own best interest, which the Democrats represent ( unless you are in the top 5 or even 10% of the wealthiest people in America ). The best choice is to ignore the urge to vote for Republicans over the influx of illegals or overpopulation, because neither party will do anything about it; and in the end the Republicans will simply screw you to enhance the transfer of wealth to the rich.
