Here’s a question that bears asking half the electorate:

Is the United States of America the greatest country in the world, full of freedoms and liberties and technologies and opportunities that the rest of the world envies?

If the answer is “Yes” (and it should be), why would we vote for “Change”?

Just because we're the best doesn't mean we can't be better.

Also we can see the path we're on leading to the point where we won't be those things in the future.

Then why vote Reagan in 1980? We weren't the greatest country in the world then? Why vote Bush in 2000? We weren't the greatest country then? Boy, maybe we should amend the constitution to make sure we can keep Bush in office. Hell, if we're the greatest country because of, and only because of the party currently occupying the executive branch, then why allow elections at all?

This proposition is so goddamn asinine, I can hardly believe it.

Gee, guys, can't you recognize a little tongue-in-cheek? Basically, I'm pointing out that "CHANGE" isn't a meaningful campaign slogan. If you want "Progress" [Reaganesque] or "Hope" [Clintonesque], then say so.

Change isn't necessarily progressive or hopeful. Gilbert Gottfried as President would be a "Change".

I'm an Obama supporter but I agree with you, the "change" thing is slightly insulting to the ole gray matter.

Of course, it is working, and McCain's trying to co-opt it. But such is the way of empty rhetoric.

Anyway, I was posting here to say I had an advertising question for you if you mind emailing me back at Derelict_Q[@]hotmail.com
