The True Lies of Arnold

To quote George Liquor American from Ren & Stimpy, "What's this crap?!"

"If you believe that government should be accountable to the people, not the people to the government, then you are a Republican! If you believe a person should be treated as an individual, not as a member of an interest group, then you are a Republican! If you believe this country, not the United Nations, is the best hope of democracy in the world, then you are a Republican! And, ladies and gentlemen, if you believe we must be fierce and relentless and terminate terrorism, then you are a Republican!"

They (politicians) really will say anything that sounds good to get your vote. It really strikes me as frightening and sad how this election game is mounted on such a massive scale of deception. Left/Right is not just an issue of values any more, it's an issue of truth vs. lies. I'd have to be stupid not to see that dems bend words to fit their own agenda sometimes, but listening to Arnold speak last night really was making my blood boil. How can anyone really take this ham-handed "you are a republican if..." seriously? It's not just rhetoric, it's bullshit!

a) Our government is not accountable to the people, but big business
b) People are treated as members of interest groups, not as individuals
c) Most upsetting, the arrogant claim that we, the United States, knows what's best for the world in spite of the opinions of the rest of the world, is truly dangerous and most definitely undermines our reputation, safety and propagates - not terminates - terrorism.

Please, folks - let's hope the rest of the country can get a clue and say "you're terminated, fucker" this november.

Wouldn't it be nice if for once Americans stood up and shouted: Who the fuck are these people and why don't they make the politicians like they used to?

I say we start exhuming the bodies of Lincoln and Roosevelt and go Victor Frankenstein

Is it cynical of me to believe that politicians have always been this reprehensible and that their biggest failing, currently, is that they no longer try to mask their agendas and treat the American People as though they were 2nd grade educated dolts? It is insulting to our collective intelligence, but one has to marvel at the audacity of these hucksters. I feel sick.
