From a fellow ranter

So, who is REALLY winning this election? (an inside look)

So, today on yahoo I saw this, 

                                            

I think what everyone wants is an unbiased prediction into this historic election. Meaning, no government controlled media telling everyone who is going to win. (don’t ask me why we are a democracy if the government controls our media)

 

 

Now, let’s look at some statistics just to make sure everyone’s on the same page. This is a prediction that I made back on September 2, 2008. 

 

 

This is WAS my prediction on Sept. 2, 2008

Note: This is WAS my prediction on Sept. 2, 2008

 

 

Okay, now here’s what yahoo predicts or according to yahoo it’s what Real Clear Politics predicts. 

 

 

 

This is the prediction of Yahoo (Real Clear Politics) as of Oct. 24, 2008

They actually look pretty much similar, excluding the fact that I basically gave the whole south to Mr.McCain. Since Sept. 2, 2008 I have been doing a lot of thinking about this whole “election thing-a-ma-bob ” and I am looking at this election and comparing it with the past two elections (the one’s with most controversy) and I see a trend. I see the Democrats coming close even winning by a large margin and then something happens, something big, something momentum changing and the Republicans end up winning by half-a-percent. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of an election in the world that ended like the last two American ones’ (2000 and 2004). 

I’ve come to the partial conclusion of expecting anything and by that I mean the dumbest possible thing that could ever happen. For example, Mr.Bush winning his second term, even the Canadians were laughing at us. I will now proceed to give a full analysis of the election so far. 

Barrack Obama flew passed every democrat clearly looking like a favorite amongst Democrats. It ended up being a head to head bout between Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama. Meanwhile, Mr.Mccain was having “hotdogs” with Mr.Bush because he surprised every Republican by pulling a fast one at the end. Ron Paul looked like the clear favorite for Republicans, which he was, until Government controlled Fox News started bashing him non-stop and trying to make a fool of him on television. At the same time, Rudy Gulliani and Mitt Romney wouldn’t stop yelling and laughing at Ron Paul taht they seem to have forgot about their campaigns. Huckabee and Mccain went face to face for awhile and then Mr.Mcain took the nomination and ran to Mr.Bushs’ house to eat “hotdogs” and replace his arms. 

So, now we have Barrack Obama and John Mccain face to face and I must say it was looking nasty at sometimes, but Barrack Obama kept his cool. Oh, I almost forgot…Barrack Obama picked Joe Biden for his running mate amongst other choice which included former enemy Hillary Clinton and John Mccain picked Sarah Palin. 

Fast forwarding to a few weeks ago and we have Barrack Obama coming out of a tie with Mccain and to waht is now looking like a clear favorite. So, now government run news sources are leading you to believe that Barrack Obama will win, or they are just quite. Wait, what’s this…..a guy named….WHAT? J….Jo….Joe….Joe the Plumber is that what it is. So, now where taking the opinions of unlicensed plumbers? 

Do you now see what I mean by the “dumbest possible thing” and people believe it too. Wow, government run news stations really know how to make a big deal out of nothing. Before we start pointing fingers lets get the story right an unlicensed plumber comes up to Barrack Obama and says what are you doing about the taxes and something about socialism and something about taxes and something about that and this and there and you and me ad money and percentages and xbox and rich people. Anyway, Barrack Obama responds by saying I’m spreading the wealth. The plumber and government controlled media say it’s socialism. I have a feeling they don’t know what socialism is. Let’s check: 

According to Wikipedia: 

Socialism refers to a broad set of economic theories of social organization advocating state or collective ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods, and the creation of an egalitarian society.[1][2] Modern socialism originated in the late nineteenth-century working class political movement. Karl Marx posited that socialism would be achieved via class struggle and a proletarian revolution which represents the transitional stage betweencapitalism and communism.[3][4]

 

But Wikipedia is not reliable, so let’s get another opinion.

Dictionary.com says: 

 

so⋅cial⋅ism

    [soh-shuh-liz-uhm] Show IPA Pronunciation 

–noun    

1. a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.
2. procedure or practice in accordance with this theory.
3. (in Marxist theory) the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles.
Obviously an unlicensed plumber doesn’t know the simple meaning of socialism. I’m sure he would love communism or Totalitarian government right? Since he wants so much money and no taxes for rich people. I’m sure f he was middle class he wouldn’t be doing this. This is precisely what happens when rich people become snobs. Am I calling our dear friend Joe the unlicensed plumber a snob? Why, yes I am…I am calling him a rich snob that doesn’t want to pay 3% more taxes. Well, what about us Mr.Plumber? what about us…the middle class we wake up in the morning not even knowing if we can keep our house for a week. We wake up and check our email, we check the mail box and find out that we won’t be making our way to work today…or tomorrow.
We wake up in the morning and stand on our front lawn looking at our house, our foreclosed home….our life that was once alive and well, but is now no better than dirt. We get letters in the mail saying our wages will be garnished, we can’t pay our bills, we run America and what do we get? We are the middle class and we always come 2nd. We are the middle class and Mr.Bush doesn’t care as long as we do are job and be middle class like we are suppose to, like a hamster in his cage running around and around and around on our little wheel of despair that brings misfortune and panic in the eyes of many. We are the middle class and Joe the Plumber doesn’t care. Joe the Plumber just wants his check, he just wants his money. Joe the Plumber can pay for his bills he has the money, he doesn’t have to worry about losing his job. He’s making quadruple the amount a middle class American is making.  I think Joe the Plumber can wait, It’s about time the middle class come first!
Sorry about that, I kind of went on a little rant. Now we have this Joe the Plumber character popping out to the scene and hints from government controlled media that he is “changing this election”. Well, here’s what I think; I think Joe the Plumber has just altered the course of this election and screwed America. Thanks Joe, Thanks a lot. By the way how much did your friend George and John give you? yea, I’m sure it was more that your $250,000 a year salary right?
