I'm so tired of this Bullshit

What the fuck is going on with this country?

We're about to elect a president based on who served how in the military OVER 30 YEARS AGO!?!?!?!

This is my country and I deserve to know what Mssrs. Bush and Kerry would do to make it better, stronger, safer. Instead, all I get fed is a steady diet of Swift Boat Stories, Philandering Catholics and the fucking swing states. Does anybody realize that over 1,000 Americans have now died in Iraq? Health insurance now costs more than ever before? Gas prices look set to keep rising? Nearly 40,000 people die every year from gun related injuries? Aren't these issues more important than whether John Kerry had a 1 inch or 2 inch piece of shrapnel lodged in his arm 30 FUCKING YEARS AGO!

This is not how you get an informed electorate. This is not how democracy is supposed to work. I am of the personal belief that John Kerry is the better man of the two for the job (not by a large margin, mind you), but I want that notion challenged. I want to hear a real explanation of why Bush thinks the Kerry tax cuts are pipe dreams. I want to hear what scary isolationist ideas Kerry is proposing to counter outsourcing. I want to hear this, and I deserve to hear it. But instead we get fed a steady diet of fluff and the American public gets more disenchanted and more turned off.

This is fucking bullshit and I'm ready to make a stand.
