Why Politics and Religion Must Be Separate
Why Voting for Religious Reasons is Wrong

This is a really simple argument for the evangelicals and other religious types who are choosing to vote for a candidate because they want their bible’s rules to be put into American laws.

When you take away the ability for people to choose (such as abortion rights), you remove from people the right to choose what path they want to take. A person who is forced to make the right choice is not really being tested. As civil liberties (that is, our rights to do what we want) are taken away, and we are forced to do certain things by the laws, we lose our ability to choose to do the right thing. That is the number one thing that God wanted us all to have. Free will.

If you deny us the right to do what we want with our lives, you are going against God.

More importantly (to me anyways), is the idea that the laws of society should be separate from the laws of any religious text. This is primarily because there are many religious texts out there and the few areas where they agree are already in our law system (don’t kill each other, don’t steal from each other, don’t sleep with each other’s wife/wives, etc). Everything else should be up to an individual to decide based on their own religious beliefs. As soon as you start slipping bible (or Koran) verse into the law system, you end up with the possibility of destroying other religions.

There is one thing that America is supposed to be about, and that is freedom. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to make your own choices. Why would you ever want to lose those freedoms? God would not approve of anyone being FORCED down a righteous path, because it would be utterly meaningless in God’s eyes.

So stop trying to impose your religious beliefs on our system of laws. You are only hurting God when you do that.

The Politics of Lies
Why Republicans Repeat the Same Ones over and over and over…

So it’s been about the third or fourth time I’ve heard the republican candidates say that Barack Obama is going to raise taxes on people making 32,000 a year. This is a blatant and bald-faced lie. He has no intention of raising taxes for anyone making under 250,000 a year. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar. That would be John McCain and Sarah Palin.

First let me just say that if you are not a regular reader of, you need to become one. Factcheck has done an incredible job of exposing lies and manipulations by both candidates. It does not lean either way, but as you read through the various manipulations of both campaigns, you’ll come to realize that the biggest liar this year is clearly John McCain. However, that’s expected political posturing, right?

Well what sickens me the most about McCain’s campaign lies, is that despite being refuted to his fucking face, he CONTINUES to repeat them as though they were true. Even more irritating is that by repeating them, people become brainwashed into believing them. Are the American people really so stupid that they’ll believe someone just because they say the same thing over and over again? Well, given that there are still complete idiots out there who think that Iraq had something to do with the September 11th attacks and that there are even bigger fuck-tards who think that Barack Obama is a muslim (he’s Christian btw), I would say that yes; there are complete morons out there (who vote, sadly) who will believe these two lying fuck faced asses just because they repeat their lies over and over.

Yeah, this shit makes me angry. Both sides seems to be using any sort of factoid, even ones from many years ago and trying to use that as a basis for saying something about the opposite party now. After having analyzed the mis-truths though, you can clearly see that the distortions from the Obama campaign are very slight compared to McCain’s ridiculous assertions…

Let me summarize some stuff for you and I’ll just tell you who you should vote for. You don’t have to listen to me (and if you’re republican, I know you won’t), but just think about some of this stuff before you vote this year.

You should vote for Barack Obama if:

  • You are single and make less than $200,000 a year.

  • You have a family and make less than $250,000 a year.

  • You don’t own a major corporation.

  • You’re sick of seeing the wealthiest people get the largest tax breaks.

  • You would like a highly intelligent leader.

  • You want someone willing to talk to enemies and allies to work out solutions to our problems.

  • You want someone who supports the rights of the people.

  • You want the war in Iraq to end in an intelligent way.

  • You want someone who grew up poor and was still able to get educated and become the first black man to become the president of the Harvard Law Review, yet instead of taking a corporate job and making millions, he became a community organizer helping poor people in Chicago.

You should vote for John McCain if:

  • You make more than $200,000 a year as an individual.

  • You make more than $250,000 a year as a family.

  • You think giving the richest 5% of Americans more money is a good idea.

  • You liked the Bush administration policies.

  • You like the idea of a tax and spend Republican.

  • You hate individual freedoms and want them to be taken away.

  • You own a large multi-million dollar corporation or an oil company.

  • You want to see our reliance on oil and thus wars in oil countries grow.

  • You want to keep our troops in Iraq indefinitely.

  • You want someone who will refuse to talk to foreign enemies to try and find peaceful solutions unless they bend over backwards beforehand (which they won’t do) thus causing more wars and longer continued wars

  • You own a weapons development corporation.

  • You want to lose more personal freedoms.

  • You think putting the bible into our government is a great idea (if so, you’re probably a bible thumping idiot, but that’s another story)

  • You want someone who grew up a rich navy brat, graduated in the bottom 3 of his naval academy, crashed several planes out of arrogance, and lived several years of his life as a Prisoner of War in Vietnam. Came back angry, cheated on his wife and then divorced her for getting fat due to a car accident while he was a POW, and married a rich woman so he wouldn’t have to worry about money.

Anyways, go vote. If you’re rich… Well, you know who to vote for. If you’re one of the other 95% of the country, vote for Obama, or you’re just begging to be destroyed by a Republican candidate who could give two shits about you.

What, biased? Me? Consider my previous views on other topics. Were they biased or based on reasonable conclusions? If you’re totally against everything I’m saying here, maybe you have some thinking to do.
