Today is election day in the USA. One day every four years Americans get to have their vote ignored. This year the serious choice is between Bob Barr and staying home, but the outcome with either be President Barrack (lets bomb Pakistan) Obama or President John (the government will buy your house) McCain.
In the name of choice, both candidates believe in spending more government money, both are opposed to privacy, both support huge government spending on defence, health, education and welfare, both want campaign finance reform, both want a carbon trading system, both oppose gay marriage, both support the IRS and both support the war on drugs. There are some important differences though. Obama is black. And McCain is old.
Good luck America.
