No matter how much I try, I can't picture this as "moving" me. Cartoons in themselves are often light and humorous, and the jaunty, informal attitude associated with fist bumping doesn't quite help.

Perhaps a painting of Obama looking up at Lincoln's statue would have moved me more.

Apparently they're taking a "participate in debates" break. Just look at the "Online" section of their profiles. For example, I just checked Bradf0rd's, and it said he was on 1hr 39mins ago. And loudacris was online 1hr 40mins ago.

So they're here...but not actually writing any arguments...

The conservative-liberal divide has been steadily widening ever since Bush's presidency. It seems that the latest Obama vs. McCain divide has accelerated this. Democrats became stauncher Democrats. Republicans became stauncher Republicans.

As Republicans suffer the repercussions of losing the president position (after losing Congress in what seems like 'just yesterday'), they'll be driven away from Obama. And the widespread media support for Obama (far larger than for Kerry) also alienates many Republicans due to their "bias." (well, they still have Fox news...). Plus Obama's highly liberal stance on abortion, gay marriage, and taxation has not and will not be easily swallowed by Republicans. Many (of course, not all) Republicans supported McCain solely to oppose Obama - not because McCain was a good candidate. McCain was the safe haven for racists, anti-"socialists", higher-income voters, and pro-life advocates.

Meanwhile, with a strong Democratic president at the helm (with the support of both houses of Congress), Democrats will be far less willing to compromise with Republicans. This will only widen the rift.

And tough economic times (Great Depression) and faraway, disliked wars (Vietnam) have never been known to help unite Americans, instead leading to a lot of finger-pointing.

Glassbooth seems to be pretty similar to what I'm proposing. It's a bit more comprehensive (yet better). A very interesting way to figure out which candidate you like.

McCain and Palin have constantly had disagreements over where the campaign should go. For example, McCain told Palin not to bring up the Obama-Rev. Wright line, but she did anyways.

Stability in both Iraq and the Middle East is a significant factor in why we're still staying in Iraq. It is feared that if the US pulls out prematurely, the new Iraqi government will eventually collapse and violence will escalate. The US presence in Iraq is also used to keep pressure on other Middle East countries to thwart terrorists.

As Thrasymachus in Plato's Republic and Machiavelli in The Prince argued, an unjust person gets farther in life than a just one.

"Every one admits how praiseworthy it is in a prince to keep faith, and to live with integrity and not with craft. Nevertheless our experience has been that those princes who have done great things have held good faith of little account, and have known how to circumvent the intellect of men by craft, and in the end have overcome those who have relied on their word. " - Machiavelli

"Injustice, if it is on a large enough scale, is stronger, freer, and more masterly than justice" - Thrasymachus

About Me


"I'm just a guy who likes to think about what some would call "deep" things. I also am a team policy debater. <p> In team policy, we judge on on persuasiveness, organization, delivery, evidence, and refutation. And that is basically what I judge on, too. <p> Even if I don't necessarily agree with what you write, I will vote it up if it is logical, clear, and concise. <p> There is no point in a debate where one side refuses to acknowledge that the other has valid points (of course, you can always refute them with better ones ^_^). <p> If you want to know more about me, feel free to take a look at my website (waaykuul.wordpress.com)."
