67. Forget Doubting.
I am a Dual Citizen and do vote. And I am NOT gonna vote for Obama in 2012. The last ten months have taught me that anybody who can get to the White House will be sucking the dicks of corporate America, and as such no real progressives will get anything resembling power.

In two decades, when this question comes up again - only by the economy will be in much worse shape than now, because by then inflation will making every American poorer - the result will be the same. It'll be the same until the lobbyists get shown the door and their rent boys follow them out. But with both parties and the mainstream media well and truly contaminated by this disease, it's at the point where I think a lot of American progressives need to do what I did.

Move to Canada.

Because here, you know, the views of the public are actually relevant in politics, even when Canada's government head is a douchebag.
