A Special Message From The President - Straight to the Junk Mail Folder

"So strong is this propensity of mankind to fall into mutual animosities, that where no substantial occasion presents itself, the most frivolous and fanciful distinctions have been sufficient to kindle their unfriendly passions and excite their most violent conflicts. But the most common and durable source of factions has been the various and unequal distribution of property."  ~James Madison, Federalist Papers No. 10

I had an email from President Obama that was mistakenly placed in my Inbox this morning.  The President really wants me to get out there tomorrow with at least three of my closest pals and keep the "movement" going by checking all the boxes marked "Democrat".  LoL - Check it out [emphasis added by FugginSuggin.com]:



Friend [ :))) ] --

Tomorrow, you can help determine not just the outcome of this election, but our country's future.

You made the difference in 2008. Now, once again, you can defy the conventional wisdom that says you can't overcome the cynicism of our politics; you can't overcome the special interests and the big money; you can't tackle our biggest challenges.

This movement has never backed down from a tough fight -- and we're not about to start. [Its always all about fighting with partisanship]

Over the next two years, we've got to keep moving America forward -- but I need allies in office to make it happen. The ballot you cast in 2008 was a crucial first step. Thank you for that.

I need you to make sure you get at least three of your friends to vote with you -- it is simply the most important thing you can do to make sure we can keep bringing about change.

Find your polling place and the time polls are open here.

If you have already voted [nope], please click here to help in these final hours of our Vote 2010 campaign [nope].

When we arrived in Washington, we knew the road ahead would be difficult.

Our country was facing the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression -- with 8 million jobs gone -- because of nearly a decade of policies that put corporations and special interests before ordinary Americans.

Two short years later -- together -- we have begun to rebuild our economy on the values of hard work and responsibility [really??].

Private employers and small businesses have created jobs nine months in a row. And 3 million Americans would not be working today if not for the investments that you, and our Democratic allies in Congress, helped put in place.

Because of you [who meh?], there are families all across the country who will never have to choose between losing their home and treating an illness. Because of you, millions of parents can look at their kids and know the opportunity of a college education is within reach. Because of you, a business owner got a small business loan and is keeping her doors open. And because of you, thousands of our brave men and women are home from fighting in Iraq.

I know that even with these changes -- and the progress you've fought for -- too many families are still struggling. We have so much more to do.

And that's exactly why America cannot afford to go back.

We must continue to move forward, and the decisions voters make in your area will determine which direction this country takes for generations.

We want to keep taxes low for the middle class, so you can pay your bills.

We want to give tax breaks to American companies who create jobs and spur innovation right here in America, not make it easier for them to ship jobs overseas.

We will fight efforts to privatize Social Security, and stop the other side from handing over the retirement savings of a generation to Wall Street.

We refuse to go back to the days when big oil and insurance companies wrote their own rules and ran up record profits, while you paid for it at the pump or faced bankruptcy as health bills piled up.

The other side has different ideas. [the dark side?]

Washington Republicans have tried to block our progress at every turn. And worse, they're campaigning on taking us back to the exact same agenda that brought us to the brink of disaster: Cut taxes for the wealthy at the expense of the middle class while ballooning the deficit. Give free rein to Wall Street speculators. Lower the minimum wage for millions of hard-working families. Privatize Social Security. And allow insurance companies to deny children health coverage based on pre-existing conditions.

The problem is we know what this looks like -- and we know it doesn't work.

We cannot relive that past.

Don't let them [?] tell you that change isn't possible. Because here's what I know: Nothing in America has ever been easy [unless you're super rich].

The only reason we're here is because, in past generations, Americans came together [in protest], even in the face of impossible odds. That's how we got through war. That's how we got through depression. That's why we have civil rights, and women's rights, and workers' rights.

We've asked you to do so much since we started this journey together, and you've always come through. [How kind.]

And now, I'm asking you to come together [right now, over me] once more to cast your vote for Democrats tomorrow.

With your vote -- and the votes of at least three of your friends -- we'll continue to grow this economy and restore the middle class to its rightful place, and the American Dream will be alive and well once again.

Thank you for all you do,

President Barack Obama

P.S. -- There are vital get-out-the-vote events happening across the country today and tomorrow. If you aren't already signed up to help, please find and RSVP for a GOTV event near you.

First off, I really appreciate him calling me "Friend" in the greeting and saying so many nice things about all I personally did for this country, as I naively thought that there would be hard feelings after some of the stuff I've said on this website.  Next off, is this guy serious saying that "conventional wisdom" tells me that our country "cannot overcome special interests" or "big money", or "tackle our biggest challenges"?  Well, let me tell you something President Barack, you could have assisted in overcoming and tackling those challenges, but you didn't, and that's the reason that "conventional wisdom" is now telling everyone that negative shit.  It's because we all believed in a momentous "CHANGE" when you were running for President, and all we've gotten is an acceleration of Bush policies, despite having a Democrat in the White House and a Democrat-controlled majority in both the Senate and CongressYou did not overcome special interest or big money or tackle our biggest challenges.  The idea of "change" bullshit if it is coming from a Republican or Democrat.     

I know that many may think this is a warped thing to say, but I miss the ole Bush days.  Back then, Conservatives were quieter, not making such a ruckus with their outward racism and ignorance, and Democrats had a better footing too, because they were the underdogs, speaking up against 'the man,' instead of being 'the man' (and Oh NO, a black man at that).  At the very least, under the Bush Administration it made sense why we were where we were, but now, it just feels like we are constantly being lied to and misled.  Is there really any difference between a Republican and Democrat in power?  I am a human being, with reason and rationality, not a member of any political party.  That's how politics should be in my utopia, based on rationality, reason, morality and accountability. 

So everyone, on election day tomorrow, unless you are voting to legalize marijuana, you're wasting your invaluable time.  And President Obama (and VP Joe Biden) please stop sending me your tactically written, generic, propaganda-filled emails.  I get enough spam as it is.
