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!
