We can rebel all we want, but as far as I can tell this election is turning out to be like every other election I can remember in my life ... a choice between the lesser of two evils.
Clearly, Romney is less evil than Obama. And a vote for a “3rd party” candidate might as well be a vote for Obama in practical terms.
So, I will vote for Romney. Not because I want to, but because I know 4 more years of Obama means we are finished as a nation I wish to call home.
We, of course, were supposed to have a real choice.
Can we, today, say we are offered any real choice? Are not both candidates selected by super-pacs, and media elites, who wield the real power behind the scenes.
The GOP, with its big money supporters has always tried to offer us the least conservative candidate they thought they could get away with. This year, because Obama is so far left, they have offered a candidate only slightly less socialist; knowing that our fear will force us to toe the line and vote for the lesser evil. By doing so, the GOP has made my vote meaningless and hence my participation in the process moot.
Is the only real difference between America today and former Soviet Union, the softness of the whip? If so, I am getting tired of voting for the master with the softer whip.
