That's how I feel now with the presidential election rushing down on us, days away, and I attempt to discuss its importance with people who STILL THINK IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER! Or even worse, with those who believe it matters SOOOOO MUCH that they are determined to vote for Ron Paul or Gary Johnson.
WTF is WRONG with such people?
Seriously. My mouth opens to scream at them, and nothing comes out. My hands struggle to rise to their throat, yet remain glued to my lap.

Romney or you'll never see 18. I've got
your absentee ballot right here.
Over at Rachel's blog, she deftly skewers the idea that the Obama administration should be allowed their little "bump in the road" concerning Benghazi. Especially with the election and all. We'd HATE to politicize the deaths of brave Americans. No one wants to know what happened that night more than our Beloved Leader, he's assured us, and he'll get right to the bottom of it after he wins re-election. This appears to be another "You have to pass it to find out what's in it" moment.
No, I don't. That crap sandwich stinks from here. It's had seven long weeks to "ripen." It's not hard to guess what's in it, thank you.
Here's my take on Benghazi. President Obama knowingly, deliberately, POLITICALLY watched those men die. Why? Their lives were not worth his re-election. He murdered them as surely as if he had pulled the trigger because he and he alone had the power to help and he just sat there - and watched. Facts coming out even suggest he actively REFUSED the help he could have provided.
That doesn't just make him culpable. It makes him responsible. With malice. And intent. To refuse help to those men in the face of an organized, sustained and highly militarized attack was to deliberately leave them to die. They were not going to get out of there without help. He knew that. He chose to let them die.
THAT. IS. MURDER.
And with a level of cold-blooded self-interest that is chilling in its implications.
If you intend to vote for anyone else besides Romney -- who EVERYONE KNOWS is the only candidate who stands a chance of removing Obama from office -- then you must acknowledge that you are okay with a man of such soulless, lustful greed for power winning re-election.
This is not the time to throw your hands up in the air or to insist that your principles will not be compromised. This is war. And war is almost always a game of tradeoffs and compromises. The question must always be, "What decision can I make -- right now -- that will keep me alive to fight tomorrow?"
Voting for Romney is the only one. Any other vote is a vote to die -- if only metaphorically -- like those poor men who Obama killed because they were politically inconvenient.
Over at PJMedia, Zombie dials in on these last four years and if you can read it and STILL think this election is just like any other or that you MUST remain committed to vote for someone other than Romney who cannot win and therefore will INSURE that your dearest principles will be destroyed forever, I do not understand you. At all.
