I live in North Texas, a confusing combination of racism and Christianity on the Bible belt. As an Iranian who studies here I sometimes face the ugly side of the Americans here, especially after our presidential election back in 2005. Boy, we really messed up on this one. I always wonder how on earth, amongst all those worse candidates, we managed to elect the WORST!
And this Ahmadinejhad-Bush mishmash is the worst thing that could happen to the world at this time of the history. Kind of like a “Universal Bi-polar Disorder”. A crazy, religious, moron on this side of the earth and another crazy, religious, mindless moron on the other side. What a synergy!
While I think any other president for 2008 is by far a superior alternative to the current one (Bush) I strongly believe that another idiot can put the Iranian community in a more difficult situation and segregate us even more.
I like Obama, I guess in the long run he has the charisma, and the vision to take this broke country to where it was before the Bush administration. I like Hillary too, despite all her hypocrisy; I believe she can help this country too. She has what Obama probably lacks to possess, “Arrogance”, and that’s what Americans originally like to see in their president.
I have never voted Republican. But, this time I have found a crazy Republican who makes Republicans and Neoconservatives think, Ron Paul. As crazy as it sounds, I believe he has given some thoughts to what he is saying and among all the other candidates he is the only one who demonstrates integrity in his slogans, and never been swinging back and forth in what he is saying.
I like to see Iranians register Republican and vote for him 🙂
**The title comes from a conversation I had with a friend of mine the other day. He said his mom thinks no one in this election possesses Christian values and she will vote “Jesus” for the office. He reminded me of my home country where people vote “Emam Zaman” for a seat in Majles!!!
