Have to say, I’m totally bemused by American politics. A banking crisis caused by a too-lightly regulated financial system totally screws the economy under a dumb Republican administration… and then the Democratic one subsequently voted in is punished for not fixing it quickly enough, battered by a movement who want… much lighter central control.
Give Obama a chance, I say. From this side of the pond he’s doing his best to sort out the sins of Bush. And stop presenting socialism as some sort of evil. Sharing stuff and mucking in to help one another is pretty close to Jesus’ manifesto if you ask me. Not quite sure he was a ‘help myself and screw the rest of you’ right-wing, gun-toting, consumer capitalist. But maybe I’m reading my leather-bound, words in red Bible wrongly.
BTW, I wrote you a letter… but that’s enough ranting for now. Just…don’t vote in Palin, please. We’re begging you.
