__ My candidate OR __ Anti-Christ

I am constantly amazed by and ashamed of the sheer amount of ignorance and shallowness that passes as legitimate political discourse for so many people.

Please, examine sources carefully and think for yourself before you click "forward." If you think it is in your best interest to attack Barack Obama or John McCain, please at least stop for 60 seconds and ask yourself if your conclusions are based upon the entirety of what they themselves have said, done, or believe or if it is what you have decided based on someone else's filter.

Is it possible to disagree with someone without that person somehow becoming the new Anti-Christ, Karl Marx, Adolf Hitler, or Osama bin Laden? Is demonizing the only way to advance a position?

There was a certain American prophet who foretold our current state many years ago:

"All obstructions to the execution of the Laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They [political parties] serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation, the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels, and modified by mutual interests.

"However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people, and to usurp for themselves the reins of government; destroying afterwards the very engines, which have lifted them to unjust dominion."

--George Washington


Unfortunately, it looks like Red vs. Blue is here to stay.
