We will be discussing our severely limited "choices" for presidential candidates.  

How come since I've been of voting age, I keep hearig this excruciatingly irritating logic that says you GOTTA VOTE, so why not choose the "lesser of the two evils"?  And I would reply I'll pass on this one.  After them saying well, you GOTTA VOTE, How can you not vote??  So let me get this straight, I have to vote for someone who is evil is what you're telling me?  Maybe you should write that down on a piece of paper and read that back to yourself, and honestly tell me it makes good sense, well not really, but you still HAVE TO VOTE!!!  Sorry, I'm not your usual sheep sir!!!  I may not always pass on grass, but will always pass on doing stupid shit that is a waste of my time.  I've always known who the winner would be so why bother?  So you're telling me we have a duty to elect someone who is evil in a way?  They are just less evil, according to your opinion, than the the other "choice" we have.  How come we aren't voting for the best of the best?  Like a Top Gun President or some shit?  How come we have to choose between two major parties that stand for old and stale values like the stuff in your underwear? 

Other topics:  Why most still claim Obama to be the first black president when he is mixed-race.  I know that's a hot issue although it should be a non-issue in my book.  And how come there is such a push for someone to release tax returns, while a sitting president had trouble releasing an authentic birth certificate, which is actually a "requirement" to be an eligible candidate for President.  I just don't see how they let that become an issue when all they had to do was, uhh, whatever they have done with every other goddamn president pre-Obama? Remove head from sand now!
