Nightmare in November

Although I've already given the Offarcical Detailed Recruiter Presidential Endorsement to David Burge of the "Unpredictable Psychopath" Party, it's time to realize that, since Burge is currently polling at 0%, due in no small part to not being on any ballots, I might need to anticipate casting my eventual vote in another direction.

I have no clue who I'd actually vote for, but I do know for whom there is not a chance in Hell I'd ever vote. And I'm worried there is a chance this runoff could actually come to pass.

There is a very likely chance that Senator Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic Party's nominee. If she were to win the election it would mean that the same two families have held the presidency of The United States of America for nearly a quarter century. That's simply unacceptable in my mind. And with there being a whole second tier of Bushes there would be a non-zero chance that this two family presidency could continue. That is simply terrifying.

Although my best man would beat me for saying this, I could actually see myself voting for Hillary. I have no opinion on her family situation regarding the former president's marital infidelities and the Vince Foster conspiracies theories and their ilk were "The Right's" version of how some numb nuts think that Bush was behind 9-11. I could live with her likely attempts to nationalize health care at the expense of my tax dollars and American innovation because, unlike the rest of the Democratic field, she has remained as committed to the War on Terror as her political realities will allow. However I just can't accept the thought of the same two families having the highest office in a country founded on the concept of avoiding such... royalty.

"Why not just vote for the Republican?" you may ask. Because, within the Republican field, there is a man for whom I hold nothing but personal contempt. That this man is from my home state is... depressing. I can't stand the thought of President Paul. I am so repulsed by Paul that I'd consider voting for Hillary Clinton over him. That is the depth of my disgust with Ron Paul. The whole thing involving his supporters spamming people endlessly. His supporters swarming web pages that mention him. The fact that Ron Paul has, willingly, gone of a fascist wanna-be's radio program, repeatedly and has failed to distance himself from some of the most repulsive people in America is simply unacceptable for me in my president. That he would also seek to destroy the ability of Americans to raise money by returning to the gold standard is simply icing on the cake.

Woe unto me should the choice come down to Clinton/Paul. Anyways, enough political wiriting. I suck at it.
