US Elections are a joke
During the primary the Press and Americans are talking about Flag Lapel Pins and Loud Mouthed Ministers.
They are debating everything but the Iraq War, Healthcare, Increased Poverty, Housing Market Crash, Job Loss, Corporate Bailouts, War Profiteering and Graft, New Orleans still being a mess...........etc.
The same people who control the press and the debate keep asking why people different than them do not love America.
My answer. Straight white Christian Conservatives make it nearly impossible for anyone unlike them to love the country.
I am embarrassed to use my US passport next week and will be hiding it as quickly as I can get it out of sight. 2.5 years until I can proudly travel with a Canadian one.
