Said as well as it can be said

By Engineering Johnson, who has been absent from my blogroll for too long.

Despite the fact that Engineering Johnson sounds like an affliction of sorts (or… an endowment?), his blog is a good read for all the techno geeks out there. Thank G-d i just have tennis elbow and golf balls.

What is the answer?

Well, as has been said so many times, we’re not going to vote our way out of this mess, and that’s true. But we can work our way out of it, incrementally, and slowly, which is how we got here in the first place.

I know it’s horrible to think of voting for someone as miserable as romney, and I know it’s horrible to think that the Won is so bad that romney is actually better, but conservative/libertarian types are what GOT US HERE.

No, it’s not the liberal left, they’re just too stupid. The educational system, the media, and the unions are the driving force behind fragmenting normal people in this country, and for the most part, they are successful. All they have to do is plant a seed of discontent and we invariably leap to it like a trout to a tasty tidbit.

I can’t vote for him! John Stewart says he’s stupid!
I can’t vote for him, CNN says he thinks some rape isn’t legitimate!
I can’t vote for him, he said he believes in God!
I can’t vote for him, he wears an ugly jacket!
I can’t vote for him, someone I know said he’s no better than what we have!

At the end of the day, no candidate is ever good enough for “Principalled” people. And so the unprincipled carry the day, again.

The vast majority of the morons in the country have no more solidarity with their elected officials than a blue balled vervet monkey, but they are willing to let their differences slide because they are at least heading in the direction they prefer.

You would think conservatives and libertarian types could actually learn from this, being as they are at least nominally capable of more intellect than the leftist cattle they despise so much. But here we are again, we hear the air raid siren, and we march off to our demise every time, because we would rather the morons win than compromise a single principle.

Hows that been working out? Who are the eloi again? Why won’t you vote romney again?
