Yesterday, Aaron Burr… Err, I mean Dick(head) Cheney endorsed John McCain for President. This is a very unfortunate endorsement for John McCain to receive from the worst Vice President since Aaron Burr.

I love America! I’ll joke from time-to-time about how California is our own country, but I’m not secretly promoting an independent California. As much as I think politicians like Dick Cheney has tarnished the American dream for decades to come, I still love our country.

When we hear about nut jobs in Texas and Montana who are trying to secede from America, we usually chalk it up as a bunch of crazies in the middle of the desert. Then you have Sarah Palin, John McCain’s VP running mate, who happens to be running around with the Alaskan Independence Party. No, that’s not the Independent Party in Alaska. That is Alaskans who want to secede from the United States of America.

For someone who touts her patriotism not by the taxes she pays, I’m really looking hard for how the hell she is patriotic.

If someone wants out of America so bad, why are they running on a presidential ticket? How about she just gets the hell out of America. Russia is right in her backyard. She could just swim there and take the whole Alaskan Independence Party with her.

What do the Clintons and the Bushes have in common?

Besides having been the only two families to reside in the White House for the last 20 years, they have an additional quality that is unfolding in front of our eyes.

George W. Bush lost the 2000 popular vote, and it has been argued that he even lost the electoral vote if recounts in Florida were taken into account. There are thousands of articles, blogs, etc. about how the Bush family stole the election of 2000. Heck! There was even a movie about it.

It is amazing how history is prone to repeat itself when unchecked power is at play.

With Hillary Clinton standing on the verge of destroying our American political system, we should all wonder if Michael Moore with produce Fahrenheit 2008.

I’ll keep it really brief:
  1. Don’t compare John McCain to George W. Bush 
  2. Focus on your own ideas, not another Senator’s
  3. Stay true to your promise of not running politics as usual
  4. Win handedly, so you are officially running against John McCain and it would actually make sense for you to say something about John McCain

I’ll keep it really brief:

  1. Focus on issues that will inflame your opponent
  2. Let your opponent make remarks about you and your proposed policies
  3. Notice how everyone will be talking about you and your policies
  4. Regain the lead because all the attention is on you, even headlines with your opponent’s name include your name
  5. Win handedly

I’ll keep it really brief:

  1. Remind voters that America has been run by the same two families for the last 20 years: Bushes and Clintons
  2. Remind us again, in case we forget
  3. Precede with “I’m Barack Obama and I endorse this message!”
  4. Win handedly

How many Families have been running the United States over the last 20 years?

I’ll give you a hint: It’s more than 1 and less than 3!

Folks, the real reason to be concerned with Hillary Clinton being president has nothing to do with what her policies may or may not be. For God’s sake, the first George Bush promised “no new taxes” and that sure didn’t happen!

Plane and simple… we’ve gone from a two party political system to a two family political system: The Bushes and The Clintons! What’s the point of having a democracy when we make ourselves a monarchy? Well, I guess biarchy would be more like it?

For the past 20 years, we’ve had the same two families at the head of this country. If you want to include the power that the first George Bush had as Vice President, make it 28 years. For me, that’s almost my entire life. And there are even talks about having Bush’s brother run in 2012. Gimme a break already!

Enough is enough. No more John Adams garbage. No more Clintons. No more Ws or HWs or any other Bush for that matter. We have a democracy here. Let’s start using it!

I’ll keep it really brief:

  1. Search the media archives for the 1992 Presidential campaign where both Bill Clinton and Hilary Clinton defended Bill’s lack of experience for a need for change
  2. Run those sound bites over and over
  3. Precede with “I’m Barack Obama and I endorse this message!”
  4. Win handedly

Free as a courtesy to democracy in America!

I was sitting there watching Fox News the other day. They had the Republican candidates on, discussing various political issues. It was the first time I had really spent paying any attention to presidential politics so far this campaign. As I’m watching Mitt Romney, there is an unsettling feeling starting to well up in my stomach.

It suddenly hit me. Remember this movie?

That is a still of Greg Stillson from the 1983 film based upon the Stephen King book, The Dead Zone. And that is what got me thinking about a certain candidate from New England.
