The Charges As Such
It has been said I am an Obama basher. This is, of course, partially true. I'm actually a president basher because I have no respect for the title. I don't respect the office. I don't respect the job. I don't respect the system. And I make no apologies for it.
Maybe in the future we'll have someone who isn't sucking on the corporate tit, who thinks war is the last resort, who keeps their promises, who is interested in actually seeing this country become what it could be. What we've been getting is the exact opposite of what should be. Obama is no different. He's just more articulate than our last jackass, and is slightly more reasonable. He hasn't stopped our illegal wars. He hasn't pulled this country out of an economic nosedive. He hasn't made the corporations a target (though he has targeted them more than any other president in recent history). He hasn't done much of what he promised, and that makes him a lot like every other president who came before him.
You shouldn't be asking why I don't like him or the job. I need to be asking you why you believe in that job and that man. Are you that easily sold? Are you that blindly patriotic? Do you really think that the title alone is worthy of respect? Why?
I'm not out to change anyone's mind. I am out to get people to question what they believe. I feel that's the only way people can progress. Question everything, including me. I can defend myself and my beliefs. Can you?
