I always knew the day would come when I would have to show the responsibility to pick a candidate for President of the United States of America and the time has finally come on the heels of the second anniversary of the founding of this publication.
Most citizens in this nation are basically zombies of the two-party system. We look at the Republican and Democratic candidates but no further, as if there is some force field that prevents our minds from exploring the possibility that someone else might possibly be presenting a better idea to solve the problems that both of those political parties have buried us in up to our eyeballs, like some huge quicksand pit.
We become hypnotized into thinking that we must choose the lesser of two evils. My mind has never worked that way, so therefore, my endorsement for President and Vice President have nothing to do with this ridiculous argument about who will and will not win but rather who has 100% of all the right answers to correct every single problem that plagues our country, regardless of political advertisements and other endorsements by LGBT publications, purported leadership organizations and miniscule gains made on behalf of the LGBT community by one of the candidates.
That was yesterday. What will you do for us tomorrow?
Beyond any and all shadow of a doubt and for every reason from the LGBT community, to the subjects of foreign policy, the economy, the jobs question, healthcare, education and all domestic policy, candidate Peta Lindsay for President and Yari Osorio of the Party for Socialism and Liberation leave every other candidate in the dust.
Peta Lindsay stands for full equality for the LGBT community, whereas Barack Obama only stands for repealing DOMA with no further promise beyond that for the LGBT community, effectively throwing us into a time machine and taking us back to 1996.
Originally, I was going to run an interview of both these candidates but after careful consideration, I found that a considered endorsement of their candidacy would serve the purpose much better.
Both Ms. Lindsay and Mr. Osorio are well educated and well-spoken about all issues and competent candidates. This is where they weigh-in on the issues:
In the long and short of this endorsement, we need a radically different path for our nation or we will cease to be anything but a third world country. We’re already well on our way and the polls are climbing for Mitt Romney, which will drive the poverty level up in our country so that in four short years no one will recognize this nation we live. We might as well move out and let the rich folks have it. Maybe find a sizeable, unclaimed island in the middle of the Pacific and form our own nation or move to Canada as political refugees.
The degree and number of people who say, “voting for someone other than Obama is voting for Romney”, has to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard! If everyone who votes for a candidate who meets 100% of what you believe in then that candidate would win!
How would that be wrong or voting for Romney if the right candidate wins?
