I’ve been reading lately that the polls show McCain is leading Obama now that the conventions are over. I have confidence this will change as the election grinds to November. I believe this because the substance of the Republican platform is duplicity and deception that will become evident. For example. Republicans claim to be the party that supports the troops, with their ex-POW, flag lapel wearing candidates, but the reality is that in policy and action the opposite is true.
Troops are held over far beyond their enlistments in what amounts to a de-facto draft to maintain manpower levels as enlistments decline. Veterans are treated like waste in poorly funded and managed facilities where the suicide rate is horrifically high and benefits denied. The truth is we are sending our troops not to defend our freedom, but to enforce a policy of economic and political manipulation and domination for the benefit of global corporate interests.
The Republicans also claim to hold higher moral ground, but in major issues debated at great length, abortion and gay marriage rights, they are attempting to take away rights of individuals. Americans are the most diverse culture ever known to this world. How can one narrow viewpoint of morality be allowed to make theose kind of decisions?
