I hate every single politician I've ever learned about.
I hate Barrack Obama for being a corporate tool selling himself as a man that gives a fuck.
I hate Mitt Romney for being a greedy narcissistic sociopath.
I hate Democrats for being completely inept at accomplishing the things the people that voted for them want done.
I hate Republicans for being so good at accomplishing the things the people that voted for them want done.
I hate Democratic voters for being so naively blind to the fact that their party is run and owned by the rich elite that they are trying to fight.
I hate Republican voters for actually convincing themselves that their corporate masters DESERVE the power they've stolen from the people.
I hate the fact that I have to vote on a (state) constitutional amendment that will ban marriage (and all the arbitrary privileges that come with it) for anyone but one man and one woman.
I hate the fact that my state is one of the nations most reliably "liberal" yet the population is split down the middle on whether to codify bigotry into our state's constitution.
I hate the fact that people will almost surely blindly pass the "voter-ID" amendment to our state constitution - blissfully unaware that they are doing nothing to prevent voter fraud and a lot to prevent poor/derelict people from participating in our "democracy" (er... republic).
I hate the fact that the mainstream media perpetuate the absurd notion that there is an appreciable difference between the Democrats and Republicans.
I hate the fact that most people take what politicians and the media tell them at face value -- and the ones that don't are conspiratorial nut-jobs who twist reality into something retarded anyway....
I hate that democratic government is so impossibly flawed.
I hate that democratic government is still the least-worst option humanity has come up with.
I'll vote tomorrow (tomorrow being today but I'm about to go to sleep so I mean later today, but it'll be my tomorrow). Straight Democrat the entire ballot. Not because I like them. Not because they fight for anything I believe to be important. I just find Republicans so pathetic. Transparent corporate pawns. Opportunistically religious and pious. Exploiting bigotry, racism, xenophobia, and hatred for political gain. Willing to get in bed with anyone and anything that will increase their own position. Fuck Republicans. Fuck them for forcing me to vote for people I find disgusting merely because half the country is retarded.
