Presidential Politics

At some point in the next several months, I’m going to have to decide who to vote for in the 2008 US Presidential Elections. I am a citizen, and it is my right and duty to vote.

Usually, I’ll weight the issues and the stances the various candidates have taken on them. Plus I’ll allow for basic quirkiness and head-up-assitude.

Unfortunately, some issues outweigh others. I must now declare that Mitt Romney will not receive a vote from me if he is selected to be the Republican party candidate. Why? From the NY Times:

…and when Mitt Romney revealed in an interview that L. Ron Hubbard’s “Battlefield Earth” was one of his favorite novels.

It is an unforgivable sin to call that piece of rotting crap a “favorite novel”. Although it gives me great warmth to think that L.R.Hubbard is spinning in his grave to have a Mormon [gasp] liking his stuff.

    I’m not convinced Mitt was able to run a state, never mind run a country.

    Whenever I’m asked about Romney, my stock answer is, “Everyone from Massachusetts is crazy! But are they crazy enough?”

    Ooooh, don’t get me started on those state stereotypes. I heard Glenn Beck on CNN discount everyone in Massachusetts just because they’re… from Massachusetts. F you Glenn Beck, we don’t need hate mongers like you on our national air waves. It’s stuff like that eventually fosters the US VS. THEM mentality that allows politicians and “religious” leaders to create the Bosnias, Iraqs, etc… It seems innocent at first, but when the s#it hits the fan people remember that stuff.

    But without stereotypes, how will we know who to vote for? I’m confused.
