i really need to stop writing about politics, as this is a personal, and not a political blog. that, and politics gives me hives.
i dont know how to feel just yet about the Iraq elections. ive heard odd things, like people’s food rations were to be cut if you didnt vote; and good things, like a large percentage of the population voting. all the newspapers are very “yay democracy!” and i just dont know..
i cant remember at this point how the guys running were picked. did we pick them? because that does not equal democracy. did we let the people pick? was it based on money, as it seems our elections are? (guy running has to have the moola to run the election, i mean, not that they are buying their way in).
im just..confused. and im concerned about what will happen now. i dont support the war, i never have. because i think our soldiers have no need to die for something that WASNT EVER THERE.
but, i did find a link to a State of the Union drinking game, which looks like fun. sadly, i do not drink of the alcohol, so i will be playing with dr pepper. which takes much of the fun out.
