So, today, 6th November, is the day of the US Election. I won’t see who wins until Wednesday morning, as I refuse to stay up all night watching an election which, in my eyes, is probably going to fuck us all over. Here’s what I think.
Obama can’t win. I want him to win, but he’s just not as popular as we need him to be.
This term, he managed to stop the USA from entering a double-dip recession, unless I missed that news story, went ahead with preparations for the US version of the NHS, managed to help convince the world to back the Libyan rebels, and, as such, overthrow Gaddafi and show the USA and the UK as pioneers for the free world, whilst hunting down and killing Osama Bin Laden and all whilst fighting allegations about his name, his birth-country and apparent drug-use whilst in college.
He was, in essence, Super-man. However, let’s look at what he has to compare to.
Mitt Romney, the Mormon from Michigan, who believes that Universal Health Care is a bad idea, wants to place women in “binders” (and not the kinky kind, might I add), has questionable opinions on rape and other sexual assaults (if Tumblr is correct) and, most of all, is almost definitely going to win today’s election.
Why? The fourth word of his bio, here, explains it all. Mormon. Now, I know Mormon history, heck, I was a Mormon for a while. I know their beliefs, their history and most of all, what they are like. They’re decent people. Most of them, that is. Some are bastards, like you and me, but most are great.
Romney, being both political and actively religious, has about as much chance of becoming President, as Jesus would if the latter had massive tits, worked at Hooters and was taking part in a wet-t-shirt contest with guns and doughnuts. Yes. It’s that likely that he’ll win.
And of course, a man of Romney’s stature should win, surely, what with being an avid alternative-Christian, so to speak, and a politician. He has the backing of the rich, and the backing of the religious. That’s America covered, like, 1.3 times.
So why SHOULDN’T he win?
Well, like I said, I know Mormon history and beliefs. What a lot of people think about the Mormons, is that they are a group of religious polygamists with a penchant for calling themselves President, as a religious title. Now, some of that is true. They DO call themselves President, as a religious title. HECK, technically, I’m a Bishop for them. I prefer Prophet of Choice, but a bishop is a good chess piece too…
Back in 18-whatever-it-was, the Mormons moved to modern-day Utah, then called Deseret, to avoid persecution in the Western States, after their leader, Joseph Smith Jnr was killed. They go west, under the clever planning and guidance of Brigham Young, to Deseret, where they set up as their own state, wanting to join the USA, with their multiple wives and lack of proper government.
To be allowed a part of the USA, they had to give up their religious belief of polygamy, supposedly because God thought being part of the US was worth missing out on sex from 3 different wives at once. They drop polygamy, get into the USA and, baddabing baddaboom, Utah!
Now, with Romney likely to take the stage as a REAL President, he could introduce legislation for polygamy to be re-instated, going against 200 years of American Legal Proceedings and Legislation. Hopefully, the senate would vote against it, but, heck, who knows?
Plus, there’s his removal of health insurance for however many people it is, something that a deeply religious man should not even think about doing. That’d be like the Pope drop-kicking a sack of puppies.
Romney has proven time and time again that he is using religion as the stepping stone it should not be, and that only leads me to believe that he’ll fuck the US over time and time again. If they fall, who falls next? The Uk? Germany? Canada? France? Australia? New Zealand? Mexico? China? Russia? Everywhere?
As a world, we cannot afford for Romney to win, yet n the final day, it’s the so-called swing states that’ll call it. Obama or Romney? Which one?
I think it’s too close to call. I THINK Romney will win by a close margin, but I want Obama to win. I really do. I trust him more and, to be honest, other than “God bless”, when does Obama use religion? I like that answer…
So, too close to call, religious intentions, possible corruption and I think we’re all fucked.
Who wins? let’s see shall we?
