Or backwards. And goodness, have you talked to the "American Voter" lately? It's a bit worrying. A couple years ago, I remember a lot of discussion about that American Voter being patient. And willing to make sacrifices as the Obama Administration made some very tough decisions about fixing the economy, health care, Afghanistan, the auto industry, credit cards, etc. To the American Voter, I say Ha! Voting Republican this year is like eating a Big Mac. It may taste good at first, but it's so bad for your health, the environment, gives you a headache in 1-2 hours and shouldn't you be buying local? Now, voting Democrat, you may be pissed at them, but really, they are the only chance of using that powerful tool known as the federal government to do really important shit. Like investing in solar, building a light rail system (remember, the FG built the Interstate system), stimulating the economy (yes, the stimulus was a good thing) and doing all the other things only the federal government can do in order to fix our big problems with health care, energy, environment, education and so on to eternity. So, if you're so concerned about our deficit, about leaving our children with piles of debt, well let's get to making some sacrifices. No more wars, tax cuts, oil subsidies, social security and Medicare. If you're more concerned with leaving our children with an uninhabitable planet because our carbon emissions officially ruined all chances to grow healthy food and breath clean air, well we still need that ole federal government. Because the states are a bunch of whiney crybabies. If you're tired of politics and would prefer to stay at home on November 2nd, really, some people are going to do that? And if you're a designer and want to make a poster about all the batshit craziness that is American Politics, please submit to Thank you.
