The leading candidates for the major US political parties according to the news media are Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the Democrats, while the Republicans have Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney.
What ghost, witch or vampire can compare in frightfulness with these so-called choices?
Actually, they are all really in a sense vampires in terms of their political philosophy. They all practice parasitism in policy through eminent domain, taxes and subsidies.
Look over my www.groundreport.com satire "America Fanged: The Vampire In Contemporary American Society."
If you have had enough of living with the horrors for the political philosophy of vampirism, embrace libertarians such as current Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul www.RonPaul2008.com. Only Ron Paul opposes vampirism at home and aggresive wars abroad. If he fails to get the GOP nomination, only the Libertarian Party consistently opposes the philosophy of vampirism at home and abroad. The Libertarian Party’s nominee will deserve the support of Americans.
But presidents are not the only or even perhaps the key position to elect. There are two houses of Congress, besides state and local offices. Look for the candidates endorsed by the Libertarian Party www.lp.org or the Republican Liberty Caucus www.rlc.org.
Only you can prevent and exterminate vampirism with your vote. Don’t be scared. Shine a lantern in the darkness and be bold.
