Does Barack Obama deserve a second term as President? Of course not. The man is a monumental failure.
So does Mitt Romney deserve a first term in the White House? Of course not. The man is an empty suit.
So, intrepid voter, whatcha gonna do come election day?
Vote for Gary Johnson, the failed Republican contender now running on the Libertarian candidate? He might or might not be on the ballot in your state but even if he is, his chance of winning are as much as any libertarian candidate for President has ever been — zero.
But with near-zero enthusiasm among mainstream voters for either Obama or Romney, Johnson might pull enough votes to be a spoiler in 2012, although it’s hard to be a spoiler in a race where all the choices are rotten to the core.
We’ve said it before here at Capitol Hill Blue but it bears saying again: Campaign 2012 produced, without a doubt, the biggest case of losers, failures and unqualified pretenders to the Presidency in American election history.
With apologies to Winston Churchhille, the election this year is a case of the unqualified leading the uninformed into the unknown for the unimaginable.
In theory, the American political system is supposed to produce the best and the brightest to contend for leadership.
In reality, we get the worst and the extremists to contend for failure.
American yearns for a leader but the leaders rode off into the sunset decades ago, leaving us with the worst dregs that corrupt political money can buy.
The White House is a cesspool where image triumphs substance, spin supplants truth and leadership takes a holiday.
Capitol Hill is ruled by con-artists, bag men and thieves loyal to party and greed, not America.
Each election talks of change but change cannot happen in the current system of government. Replacing one gaggle of thieves with another solves nothing. Sending a new empty suit to the White House does not restore jobs, the economy or America’s honor.
A friend who lives near Meadows of Dan, Virginia, suggests every candidate for public office should have to pass a lie detector test.
That’s an idea but if we threw out every candidate who lies would we have anyone left to run for office?
Is such a statement an exaggeration? Sadly, no. Lying is part of the political game as played in America today.
New faces in a corrupt system is not the answer.
Only a new system can bring change.
Ah, that is the real question facing America.
