Fuck Your God

"Hey, you have your religion in my politics" "Hey, you have your politics in my religion" Two tastes that could be great, just NOT together. Let's discuss how religious zealots are ruining the spirit of the United States and trampling your rights for the sake of their own god.

"Chuck" currently resides in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. While he finds organized religion and their fanatics to be morally bankrupt and power hungry he also believes in the Constitution and our Bill of Rights which allow all of us to believe in any god we choose and the ability to worship in any manner our selves feel to be correct and good and right. So long as we respect others' rights to do so as well. The latter concept being foreign to most religious folk.

Is EVERYONE running for President?!

It seems that everyone who was recently elected to the House and Senate is now deciding to run for President in 2008. That being the case, who's watching the Capitol? That means, who's looking out for those of us who elected them? Shouldn't they be doing their jobs? It seems to me that if they can't do this one they have NOW, they shouldn't get the one that comes NEXT. Are they worth a promotion of this sort? How can they take on the world when they couldn't even take on G.W.? These folks really need to prove themselves. Actions speak louder than words.

And this goes for both Democrats and Republicans. To them all, I say "Shut up, sit down, and do the work in front of you." When 2008 gets here, we will all take a look at what you've accomplished and go from there. And we all don't care how many millions were donated to you from the business sector, you are there to work for us. You are there to do what is RIGHT, not what is profitable for YOU. You are a public servant, so serve.

The popular thing after the last presidential election was all the talk of abolishing the Electoral College. But, honestly, most of the population isn't smart enough to handle true democracy and do what's best for the COUNTRY and only know how to be self serving. We should just trust the founding fathers with this just as we do with the Constitution and Bill of Rights. If you really knew how it worked and how it has worked through time, you wouldn't be bitchin'. To those, I also say shut up. Pay attention to the elected, write to them regularly (they all have e-mail now, you know), and vote accordingly.

Maybe tomorrow we'll discuss this statement: "Oh, I don't vote. Politics doesn't really affect me, anyway." In the mean time, discuss.
