La Ley de Herodes, o te chingas o te jodes

Ok, I haven't posted in a couple days even though many things have been going on.
Right now I have a lot going on work wise. There is a lot going on in Monterrey and in Mexico that deserves attention. Corruption charges against Madero's government, our dismal fiscal system which is makng us lose our (nonexistent) edge among other countries, the kidnappers being part of the anti-kidnapping unit, etc.

Also, I don't know if anyone is actually reading right now. Democrats and Republicans are slinging it out, but are the independent and swing voters listening? Will celebrity endorsements convince them? Swing voters aren't really swing voters, they're just unwilling to admit they have made up their minds, for whatever reason.

This race has gone on long enough for people to have a general idea of what each candidate wants to do, how he will do it and if he's capable of acheiving those goals. McCain has shown that he is willing to sell his soul to the devil (aka Karl Rove) and the christian right in order to get elected. He is willing to lie, cheat and Palin his way to the White House.

Obama has shown himself unwilling to fight dirty so far. That's not always a good thing, though I'm aware that the Republicans have defined him (he allowed that to happen) and now it's a case of dammned if you do, dammned if you don't.

If the American public is willing to believe the republicans' lies, well, I give up. I know there are many people out there that don't swallow this shit, not even for a minute. And many people are indifferent (I don't see how they can be, but they are).

But if there are enough people in the United States of America that vote for McCain-Palin whether on faith or because of corporate interests or just out of habit, I think the U.S. will have reached a tipping point, and things can only go downhill from there. To get back up, will take a dozen years and enormoous effort.

There are just so many things that are almost unbelievable, like people praying for McCain to die so the righteous Palin can take his place.

Sounds kooky? Chez Pazienza posted this on his blog today ==> Theocrats to Pray for McCain's Death
