That's the kind of talk I like to see coming out of Democrats...the truth...with all it's warts and uglies...being spoken plainly and directly....Here's a snippet from our good friend (or at least he SHOULD be our good friend) THE EXISTENTIALIST COWBOY!
Some quick notes: Barack Obama is the most shallow, non-descript, boring politician to ever come down the pike --an intellectual lightweight whose soul has been coached out of him by media consultants. In Barack Obama, I find the vacuous echoes of Ronald Reagan, a previous lightweight who had mastered the art of reading buzzwords off a cue card. My skin crawls.
More quick notes: I wish John Edwards were uglier. Hillary Clinton is damaged goods. Ron Paul, still a Republican, has many more scales to shed before he can change his repitil..uh...Republican skin.
God help us --the only intelligent politician in the field is Dennis Kucinich who has only a snow ball's chance in hell of ever becoming President. It's our loss. Watching Democrats is akin to medieval debate about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.
God help us is right....
I am sick to death of being given hand-picked choices from the media and being told to pick any one of them because "they're all good"...in other words it doesn't make any difference which one you pick because they're virtually ALL ALIKE!
The Cowboy also tells us something that should be perfectly obvious to all of us Democrats but apparently nobody dares speak it.....does this sound familiar to you?
Political rhetoric is just more of the same when, in fact, nothing is the same. How could the Democrats have missed the sea change that has taken place, the fundamental challenges to Constitutional government? What are the implications? Simply, the Bush junta has challenged not only the Constitution but almost 1,000 years of progress. Principles mouthed by Bush simply fly in the face of the Magna Carta, the English Petition of Right, the Mayflower Compact, The Virginia Declaration of Rights, The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and the Bill of Rights, The Nuremberg Principles, and every US Supreme Court decision that has upheld the right of persons to be free of arbitary rule, to be secure in their homes, to be free of unreasonable arrest in the absence of probable cause that a crime has been committed.
I'm telling you...this is important stuff and maybe it's time to take a stand...on principles if nothing else...
You should probably make the Cowboy's site a regular stop...he's sometimes pretty "deep" but that's the kind of thinking we need these days!
