[ Comment by Rainy concerning the Gun-Nut-Libertarians at ZeroHedge:]

“They hate democrats even more than you do, Kevin.” -Rainy Kincaid

[ Rainy is a party-loyal democrat who I have been chatting back and forth with for the past few years, even before the Movement started. She and practically Everyone else on the HBO Forum absolutely refuse to stop supporting The Corrupt-Two-Party-Duopoly. "We can't let the republicans win! We must always vote for the-lesser-of-two-evils!" -is their Mantra. Many of them claim to support the ideals of OWS, yet politically they are not much different than an echo-chamber of the Fake-Liberal Mainstream Media. I'm not exactly sure what she was trying to imply with her comment concerning the Gun-nut Libertarians, but this was My Reply: ]

Rainy, I do tend to vent my frustrations through posting sometimes, and I have gone overboard with it occasionally (though usually as a result of being provoked) but I don't "hate" Democrats, not in an undeserving, malicious way that the word "hate" by itself implies. "Hate" is not the correct word to describe it. The closest word to describe what I feel sometimes is Righteous Indignation. "Righteous indignation is typically a reactive emotion of anger over perceived mistreatment, insult, or malice. It is akin to what is called the sense of injustice. In some Christian doctrines, righteous indignation is considered the only form of anger which is not sinful, e.g., when Jesus drove the money lenders out of the temple. (Gospel of Matthew 21)." -Wiki

As you already know, I'm not a Christian in the "religious" sense, however I do respect much of the basic teachings that Jesus taught, concerning Empathy and Love for ALL People to be some of best moral teachings and ethics ever spoken of on this Earth. In that way I consider myself to be more Christian than most "Christians" (at least more Christian than most of the "Christians" I myself have ever personally witnessed or encountered, but then again, my world has always been a small world and I have witnessed and suffered through much evil in my world, so maybe it's more of a personal experience/perception kind of thing ). Far from perfect and far from "a saint" by any means, but I feel my ideology is firmly grounded in a Great place. And if I had more power to do more good -- I would.

I understand that you don't really know me, you only know me through what I say here and through what I post on this board, you don't know what all I've been through in my life, you don't know what all I'm going through right now, you don't know what it's like to be me everyday, you couldn't possibly know. But you should know me well enough already by now to know that I don't just "hate" Democrats, it's unfair and misjudging to even say that. What I hate (in a righteous indignation kind of way) is Evil Itself. And to me there is no question about it, that Democrats and Republicans Both support (and are directly responsible for) A-Whole-HELL-Of-A-Lot-Of-It.

Can you look me in the face and tell me you didn't vote for a War President? Understand, I know exactly what it's like to be a brainwashed Soldier willing to blindly die for my country, to be willing to have my life unjustifiably wasted and thrown away like cannon fodder in the desert over some bullshit that should have never happened in the first place. You don't. You only know what it's like to be willing to vote for a War President who would do that to me (the me I used to be). Understand, I had the courage to face desertion charges and to go to prison if I had to -to keep them from turning me into a monster. The strength of my convictions were that strong. Yet you (and Half of this country) couldn't even find the courage to stop supporting a War President. How do you think that makes me feel?

When Bush Did What Obama's Doing, Were You Mad? (FLYER) http://stpeteforpeace.org/obama.html

Damn-straight it makes me mad and filled with righteous indignation and I sometimes lose my temper and cuss somebody out about it. But I don't really "hate" you for it. I do not wish evil upon people. I wish people would stop supporting evil. And I wish people would stop trying to justify it through party-loyal politics like this is all just some fucking game. I admit, I've developed a sarcastic, cynical personality here. I try to keep things humorous, yet balanced with seriousness as best I can. But when someone doesn't give a shit about me or this country or the rest of the world, I tend to not really give a fuck if I hurt their feelings about that or not. Maybe that's something I need to work on, controlling my temper on a chat board. But even more so, Maybe Everyone Should Stop Supporting Evil, Death And Destruction Like Dangerously Retarded Dumb-Asses? You should be ashamed of yourself! -America! And I'm here to help everyone out with that. Consider this an Intervention :-)

We can't let Wall Street and the Military-Industrial Complex win, so to keep that from happening, what we need to do is vote for Wall Street and the Military-Industrial Complex because if we don’t vote against Wall Street and the Military-Industrial Complex by voting for Wall Street and the Military-Industrial Complex, then Wall Street and the Military-Industrial Complex Wins! And we can’t let that happen! Because then Wall Street and the Military-Industrial Complex might win! See how that works? lol

The president does not matter except that mittens would have sent us straight to hell

What matters is getting the people involved.

I'll take that as a Yes you Did. Dog-shit-with-cheese-on-it is at least "better" than Dog-shit-without-cheese-on-it so that's why we should eat Dog-shit-with-cheese, because it's "better". And besides, It's What's For Dinner :-)

I bet the French are feeling the same about Hollande. With what is going on in Mali.

I am not a single issue voter - even if it is your issue.

If the breaks failed on your car, would you use the best alternative - the least of evils - and use the emergency break - or would you jump out of the car?

No matter how much YOU like a third party candidate – here is the math
This is not about bush or Gore or Nader or why Gore lost or
chads or recounts or scoutus
This is ALL about the 2000 Florida math.
The “final” SCOTUS tally:

bush = 2912790
Gore = 2912253
Nader.. = 97488

So bush “won” by 537 votes

it would be reasonable to surmise that at least 80% of third party Nader votes would have gone to Gore – giving him a clear victory.
Lets be much less generous to Gore and give him a tiny 1% edge in splitting up the third party Nader votes:

Give bush 49.5% = 48257
Give Gore 50.5% = 49231


bush = 2912790 + 48257 = 2961047
Gore = 2912253 + 49231 = 2961484

A 437 vote victory for Gore

who would have
read his PDBs &
avoided 911 &
not lied about wmds &
not invaded Iraq

The issue here is – for all of the 2000 third party voters who were
SO PROUD of themselves - to vote for Nader -
can they now admit that they may have been very happy to vote for
third party Nader –
even though it led to
the worst disaster in America since the Civil War?

There has Never been a Revolution that Endorses the Status Quo

"All the energy wasted on political sites could be used to create new options. New parties. New solutions. You could be having a major impact on your local area, a total rethinking of what is right, and what is reality. Instead, you are simply following the example of the establishment. Vote on fear. Allow fear to keep you paralyzed.

This is bullshit. This is not what is needed. This is the exact opposite of what is needed. We dont need more people saying "Vote A or we get B" A and B are poison! How could you endorse either?"

Oh, PLEASE lol Not More of this status-quo defending Bullshit. Why don't you go post on the HBO Forum? you would fit in nicely there :-)

[-] 1 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

simple question - do you have the courage to answer it? true or false?
If Nader was not a candidate in Florida -
Gore would have won Florida & the presidency in 2000

simple question - do you have the courage to answer it? true or false?

Do you have the courage to do some research? And to accept that fact that both parties serve Wall Street and the greedy special interests of the 1% over the American People? The game is rigged.

"In the US, there is basically one party - the business party. It has two factions, called Democrats and Republicans, which are somewhat different but carry out variations on the same policies. By and large, I am opposed to those policies. As is most of the population." -Noam Chomsky http://www.newstatesman.com/international-politics/2010/09/war-crimes-interview-obama
