19. Hillary = ProWar = Bush = Haliburton = Attack Iran...
If anyone (sadly, including myself) was silly enough to think that the PTB would allow anyone other than a pro-war, big business democrat to win the nomination ...

well, this should serve as a wakeup. The polls taken over the past week had Obama up anywhere between 12-14%. NH is a small state in which you would not expect such a huge swing so rapidly. Something stinks to high heaven, and I would wager to bet the good folks at Haliburton, Blackwater, Carlyle (sp?) et al have their evil goddamn fingerprints all over this.

I was bummed that Dennis Kucinich wasn't getting much support, but Obama gave me some hope that an anti-war progressive (not beholden to the military-industrial complex) might have a shot.

It appears I grossly underestimated the lengths that these monsters would go to in order to keep their stranglehold on the neck of this country. And make no mistake, Hillary, if elected, will be little more than a tool of the same interests that control Chimpy. Oh sure, reproductive rights will be better off, and perhaps the country won't be in as big a rush to fry people on Death Row, but the drumbeats of war will continue, unabated. Hell, Hillary already gave the green light to taking out Iran.

Time to move to Venezuela folks.
