LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES AND “THE CANDIDATE” (1972)

The Candidate

The Candidate

Welcome back to Balladeer’s Blog, the favorite site of Independent Voters and the only site on the web that truly criticizes both sides of the political spectrum equally. Well, it’s finally election day, which means the Liberal and Conservative fanatics of the Democratic and Republican parties are preparing their accusations of voter fraud and/or “intimidation” just in case their candidates lose. 

Will the weak, inept and crooked little man named Barack Obama get reelected or will the outdated, out of touch religious nut named Mitt Romney win out? Either way we the people lose.

Political zealots are going out of their way to prove that they are every bit as destructive and, ultimately, as self-serving as religious zealots. Here in the United States the lunatic fringe of each party has become the mainstream of those parties. No matter how much gibberish gets spouted about how candidates want to try to appear “centrist” the reality is that every election cycle since at least the late 1960’s American voters have been getting subjected to the same tiresome dance. Democrats accuse Republicans of being wealth- hording racists and Republicans accuse Democrats of being unpatriotic pagans. I’m an Independent Voter and I’ll periodically post about the similarities between the slimy demagogues of the political left and the political right in the months to come.   

To start us off let’s look at Reason Number 1 Why Liberals and Conservatives are the same kind of people:
