Now I'm usually the first one to roll my eyes at any political and religious threads, but this time I have to get something off my chest. Now I'm a Republican but I consider myself a Centrist or at most a moderate Conservative. This doesn't mean that I don't give everyone a chance, I voted for Obama at the election after all. Save your stone. >_>
But I've been highly political in my years and it was horrible, it ate away at me and made me a bitter and spiteful person when dealing with absolute asshole on various political boards. So I had decided that for 2010 I would avoid politics at all costs, unfortunately I didn't realize that this year was going to be an election year. Arrgh.
I think Al Pacino said it best in Godfather 3.
So I guess I have a lot of catching up to do. Sure I could not vote, but since when has not voting ever fixed anything? I've been receiving pamphlets and practice ballots for the past couple of months. I finally opened one up and began my research on the governor candidates for California. What I found was less than optimistic.
Let's see, who's on the ballot for California Governor:
Carlos Alvarez (Peace and Freedom Party) a 23 year old retail worker- I shit you not! I didn't even know you could be that young and run for Governor. Makes me kinda interested in running myself and seeing who'll vote for me. He's an Ultra-Liberal, but considering his highest experience was bag boy at Vons is enough for me to not vote for him.
Laura Wells (Green Party) No one knows anything about this chick. All I could find was that she got arrested once for trespassing at some politcal fundraiser that she was invited to. Sucks for her I guess, But not enough for me to vote for her at this time.
Meg Whitman (Republican Party) Hired and fired her undocumented houskeeper. She was president of Ebay, so that's cool I guess.
Dale F. Ogden (Libertarian Party) Denies global warming and called Arnold Schwarzenegger "Idiot-in-Chief" on his official website. Way to keep it professional Dale...
Jerry Brown (Democratic Party) Dude's in his 70s!!! He was governor of California for two separate terms... in the 1970s and 80s!
Chelene Nightingale (American Independent Party) An Ultra-Conservative "actress" that ran a repair business or something.
I guess I can't complain too much, California was a fuckin' circus when the Recall happened (which is how Arnold became governor) Everybody and their dog decided to run for governor like it was the hippest thing to do.
When people like Mary Carey were taken seriously enough to be put on the ballot then you know things have gone tits up.
Anyway, going back to this year's election. It's not the worst California has had, but by God is it pretty bad. If only you guys could see my face. Hold on...
There you go.
