This election is about as important as the Super Bowl.Submitted by jetguy on Thu, 10/25/2012 - 17:51
I mean - does your life really change if the NFC as opposed to the AFC team wins the Super Bowl?
People spend a lot of money on it. And huge audiences watch it. Its hyped like the most important thing in the world. Everybody arbitrarily picks a side to support and sticks with it. But the next day, no matter who won - your life is pretty much the same.
I'm talking about both the Super Bowl and the election.
We will still have huge deficits.
We will still be conducting illegal wars.
We will still be able to detain American citizens indefinitely and for no reason.
We will still be doing drone strikes.
Do you know what the winning team really gets for winning the Super Bowl? That team gets to keep the Lombardi Trophy for a year in its trophy case. That's it. Nothing really changes in the world.
And do you know what is determined by this election? It detemines which family gets to live at the White House for four years. That's it. Nothing really changes in the world.
The Super Bowl is 100% created entertainment, designed just for the excitement of the thing. It means nothing.
So is this War Party Presidential Election.
