I consider myself to be of the Controlled Apathy political party. In this party, you feel that the capitolism of politics and democracy are irrevocably broken but that regular people will get through their life just fine regardless of who you put in the White House. The candidates are generally so similar on the issues they will actually take action on that choice isn't so important, and the areas where they might actually make a difference will be quietly ignored after election time.

The only caveat that the Controlled Apathy party has, is that the candidate who goes in should not make things significantly worse in this country. This really isn't that hard a contract to follow, as Presidents have been able to do it pretty well for the past few hundred years. If you're given a shot at running this country and you blow it with a one-two punch to both foreign and domestic policy, the Controlled Apathy party just isn't going to back you the next time around. This is the reason I'll be voting for Kerry in November.

I voted for Gore in 2000 but once Bush finagled his way into office, I didn't really care, because neither candidate would really have an impact on my day-to-day life. Now that Bush and his administration has shown their willingness to milk this country of all its resources and foreign goodwill in favour of his big business backers, I see no reason to let the country stay its course and be even worse off in 2008.

My other argument against supporting Bush is that he really isn't a very intelligent man. This in itself isn't a big deal, unless you surround yourself with shadowy ultra-conservative puppetmasters who convince you to follow harmful agendas and then convince you that it was your idea. Bush is not intelligent enough to tackle most issues (leading by gut instincts is unacceptable except when fishing or gambling) and the people he relies on for input are not accountable for their actions. The Patriot Act, using terror as a campaign ad, and the suggested constitutional amendment on gay marriage are all prime examples. No doubt Bush will eventually champion constitutional amendments for gays in the military, gays drinking alcohol, gays baring arms, and gays voting at the age of 18.
