Gore came to speak on campus today. About this year's election, I have to say that I'm not really thrilled with either candidate. I can't help but feel that it's a lose-lose situation.
(But please -- don't tell me to vote Nader. The Green Party is a joke. Dismantle the top 500 corporations? People, corporations do a lot of bad things, but they do a lot of good things too. They are the reason we have such a great economy right now. Baby, bath water, and so forth.)
I guess what it comes down to is this: I dislike Gore less. I'm not a believer in "big government", but I fear the consequences if we elect Bush. Three supreme court justices are a matter too important to be left in the hands of a man who doesn't care about human life.
Remember the second debate? "It's going to be hard to punish them any worse after they get put to DEATH." The quote might have been forgivable if he hadn't been smiling when he said it, like he relished the thought. I just think it's incredibly ironic that Bush can be such a stickler for the rules after his bout with cocaine. Daddy's little boy doesn't have to go to jail, but god-durn-it if someone else gets caught they should get the electric chair.
Speaking of irony, how can one party manage to hold so much of it? Life matters deeply when it's an unborn fetus. But adults, if you screw up, you're marched straight to the gas chamber.
The Republican party just seems to have too many factions that are governed by hate instead of understanding.
I sure wish Gore wasn't such a moron.
