So, I've decided that the McCain voter is one of four things:

1. Ignorant
2. Fearful
3. Racist
or 4. Rich 4. Greedily/Selfishly Rich

So I would challenge the McCain voter to ask of themselves which one they are and why before Tuesday, because none of these four traits are virtues.

ETA: Comments by [livejournal.com profile] semibold and [livejournal.com profile] raaven spurred me to qualify that last one.

I was reading an article about how the courts have decided that the limits that were placed on broadcasting companies re: owning stations in certain regions were arbitrary and have decided to loosen the rules.. this is a link to the story - click here, cos I probably did a sucky job of explaining it...

I'm going to make a prediction, and am proposing a word that I have a feeling we'll be seeing more and more of: conglomeracy

the definition? Conglomeracy - rule by large corporations...as opposed to Democracy, rule by the people.

Why should you care? Well, think about it this way - would you like to have all your news coming from one or two sources, who are making money off the news they are presenting to you?

Scenario: Tonight's news of the world, brought to you by: Enron, A Division of AT&T Broadband.

Although this scenario isn't the uber-realistic, I hope it made the point that there's just something inherently disturbing about the whole thing, at least to me.
