6 hours to go: Last Minute Plea to the Hard Core Left

Ok, look. We're all left leaning here.

We know that. So if you're considering not voting for Obama because he's just another mainstreamer who will head up the economic monster called America, and you're really tempted to grind that pen into the Indie/Green party vote...either to prove a point, or because that's what your conscious tells you to do...consider this...Obama is the best shot radical activists have at pushing agendas closer to the White House. Obama is a capatalist, but he's also an emphathizer, and sympathetic to any cause for humanity.

You will stand a far better chance at raising funds for all your humanitarian / vegetarian / petatarian causes with a man in office who actually gives a fuck.

Here's the reality: NO PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY WILL BE ABLE TO HEAD THE COUNTRY WITHOUT MAINTAINING ISRAELI ALLIANCE. It's not possible.

What is possible is shaping that alliance toward good and not throwing away a vote on extreme parties that can't make it happen for us...

Come on people. This is hope we're talking about. Real HOPE!

I could give you the long laundry list of why Obama is no progressive (except when stood up next to W or McCain).

Proof of this can be seen in his response to the Sean Bell murder by NYPD and his tacit support of the Defense of Marriage Act (i.e. his relative silence in the face of homophobia imposed and inspired by spook-worshipping, pork-eating, savages; the so-called evangelical "christians").

Instead, I will say this: accepting Obama as ones savior (in essence) without honest analysis or criticism of his policies, practices, and voting record is akin to being a "good German" under Hitler; albeit in a modern, "liberal (read: 'friendly fascist')" context.

It is my prediction that he will preside over a presidency that is just as ruthless and iron-fisted as any in U.S. history.

Imperialism is now in black-face. And the masses are so desperate that they will worship him.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. Note that I never said he was a progressive. I think he's a moderate. And I think he will surely disappoint us. I just don't see how disappointing anyone as President is avoidable, unfortunately. Particularly in a country where so much of its policy is rhetorical appeasement to the guilt-ridden masses.

Imperialism is the vote of the day. I don't like to think of it in black face. That takes too much credit away from a man who I do believe means what he says. He loves this country, and will defend it first.
