Lies and Change

The presedential election of 2004 was the most important of our lifetime.

And Barry Bonds never did steroids.

Needless to say, I was quite disappointed that the majority of voting Americans bought into this lie. Americans turned out to vote for one of the major party candidates. The logic went, well, at least he's not the other guy.

Perhaps it's because I'm young and idealistic, but I thought I was supposed to vote for the candidate who best reflected my views.

There seems to be a growing number of people who are displeased with the way things are being run. The government is no longer "by the people, of the people, and for the people". Yet a plurality of Americans turn around and vote for the Republicans or the Democrats, as if they hadn't any choice.

That's a funny way to bring about change, to do the same thing and expect different results. That is the definition of insanity.

It's too early to talk about this, but it must be said all the same. When the election of 2008 draws near, we will again hear the parisan hacks telling us how this is the most important election of out lifetimes. Don't believe the lie. The only way we will ever bring out change is if we start to stand up against mediocrity...

one vote at a time.
