Mitt Romney and Barack Obama: Coke or Pepsi

I’ll be the first one to agree that Mitt Romney was a much better choice than Sarah Palin and Donald Trump. That would have been scary. He was also a much better choice than Newt Gingrich. I’m sad to see how far that unscrupulous character got in the running. Him yelling ragefuly whenever someone brought up valid concerns about his infidelity to the cheers of his kool aid drunk supporters was absolutely cult like.
Yet my concern about Mitt Romney is the same as my concern about Barack Obama. He appears to be more of the same. Mitt Romney claiming that George Bush and Paul Henry helped save America from doing into another depression was the most absurd thing I had ever heard. George Bush was a scoundrel that put the US trillions in debt. Cheering him and his crimes on is very suspect. It means we aren’t really getting anything new.

Obama on the other hand was a wonderful speaker who promised change. Yet Guantanamo Bay is still open. I certainly don’t think Mitt Romney or any other Republican will close Guantanamo Bay or the CIA black site prisons where the US Constitution is violated on a daily basis. Yet Obama promised us change and hasn’t delivered on that change. At first we thought it was because of his nonpartasian aspirations to unite the country. Then we find out it was really because of his former secret service connections. The CIA created him. That shocking revelation was very disappointing.
It reminded me of a saying by Jesse Ventura. Jesse was asked how he felt about the two party system in the United States. He sarcastically sad he thought it was great. It’s like being asked what you want to drink. You can have anything you want, Coke or Pepsi. Well Coke or Pepsi is a little bit different but they’re both soft drinks and they both taste pretty much the same. It really isn’t much of a choice.

That is the problem we now face. Mitt Romney’s endorsement of George Bush and Henry Paulson means he is no different and will not save the constitution at this critical hour. Likewise, Barrack Obama’s ties to the CIA means neither will he. Indeed the constitution does hang by a thread and no one seems to be concerned about it.
