  • I really really hate advice along these lines. Yes, the system is completely corrupt, and no one of true integrity can get far enough to be voted for. So what should we do?

    Simply saying "don't vote for Obama" is spectacularly useless. The question is not what we shouldn't do, but rather what we can do to change things.

    My take on this is that this year, if you care about improving the world a little, you might as well vote for Obama. He sucks, but sucks a little less than McCain, and there's no other viable

    • of course, i buy natural/local or grow food myself, go everywhere by bike i can, educate myself and other people, also bit involved in spirituality. shure its counterproductive to tell others what to do but i wanted to keep this shout short and not discuss every pro and con. it was just a short reaction when i saw how many perl monks where too blind to see obamas new clothings.
      • the real solution i see in spirituality, which in fact translates into the love and caring about the people you know and see.
        • I don't consider myself a spiritual person, and yet I care about people. People will have different paths towards similar ends.

            and thats really the way to heal and solve our problems. to waste time with that election is no solution. i just wanted to maybe help somebody to see that fraud, because you must be first aware of these things and be able to recognize these when they come in new clothes so you can't be tricked. Global warming and many othe sudo problems distrac to many people.

            you have to trust yourself and heal you from psychic problems before you can help anybody. than recognise that we are one and that diversity is good. when different opinion can't set you up than you are ready to educate.

            shure i often explane things with more details, don't worry this time i just wanted raise my voice quickly. Maybe i will write here more often about such issues and discuss it more in depth. thanks.
