Oh Howard, no. Howard Dean is now saying that Bernie's plans for a single-payer healthcare system is wrong. How did this happen? Let's review.

1. Dean praises single-payer as being the most efficient model for US healthcare
2. Dean enters the private sector, as a senior advisor to the law firm Dentons, who lobbies on behalf of a variety of corporate health care interests, including drugmakers like Pfizer and Merck.
3. Dean changes his mind about single-payer

And here I thought Dean had integrity.

Wouldn't it just be hee-larious if Putin turned out to be gay?  I would just laugh and laugh!

In the meantime, he's really acting like a huge asshole.

Here are the reasons why I personally am voting for Obama. This post is free from partisan sound-bites and inane acronyms. It's just my heartfelt opinion.

Firstly: if you truly don't believe that Obama was handed a nation in serious trouble four years ago, then you shouldn't read any further-- you are a permanent Republican, and will be until you die. Good day! For those of you left, read on.

The country George Bush handed to Obama was frightened and wary of the future. Many of us were weary of the fear/war cycles that was the Bush-Cheney administration's bread and butter. When Obama took office, I feel that he intelligently handled our most pressing needs efficiently (bailing out the auto industry, pulling out unneeded troops from far away countries, eliminating bin Laden, just to name a few off the top of my head). He paid attention to social issues that are important to me, as well. All along fighting against a congress dedicated to saying “NO” to everything Obama suggested. And all along enduring the silly birther nonsense. In all, I feel that he did a great job under difficult circumstances.

Now, let's talk a little about Romney. For me, he sums up a lot of what's wrong with this country. To him, companies and money rules. To him, it doesn't matter how you got your cash-- just that you have a lot of it. That's his measure of success. I would say that most of his money comes from not actually working; instead, he lets his piles of money make more money for him by using “tricks” not available to most Americans. Do I have offshore accounts set up to dodge American laws? Nope. Did I make millions on wheeling and dealing using multimillion dollar companies? Nope. As far as I'm concerned, Romney would freely give corporations even more control of our country, leading us down a road where individuals like you and me are nearly powerless. Romney positively radiates entitlement. He is the all-powerful White Male, ready to dictate what lesser beings should do, and how they should act. Women can't receive abortions from rape pregnancies, gays can't marry, and people with brown skin should carry IDs (you know, just to be safe). I firmly believe that all of us are created equal, and Romney works directly against that notion.

Another issue for me is religion. As an Atheist, I find it alarming (to say the least) when a politician says that he is directly told what to do by a god. Look, I have no problem with people believing in supernatural beings. Whatever gets you through the night, you know? But when a person claims to be told what to do by an invisible ghost, and these decisions result in loss of life and suffering, I have a problem with that. Add in the crazy-loco-woop-woop of the Mormon religion, and it gets even weirder.

And finally, as a gay man, equal rights for gays are important to me. You don't need to do much homework to know that to be a Republican is to hate and despise me. In their eyes, I am a second-or third-class citizen. A republican only accepts their rigid and closed definition of marriage, and doesn't allow the idea that love is love. Our gay marriage has zero effect on your straight marriage. Zero.

I do not expect this post to change any minds. I just wanted to provide some actual content and context, instead of another sound-bite or not-so-clever pun. Oh, and remember to vote in November!
