I don't understand how people can keep telling themselves that.
It doen't matter which one becomes president, it's going to be business as usual in the White House. The issues that actually have an affect on you and me, are still going to be there for the next 4 years. Both of these Candidates are owned by the same groups of people, so it doesn't matter to them which one wins, just as long as one of them does. And one of them will.

Ron Paul wasn't owned by anyone. He actually did have a chance at winning some states. But the GOP did everything in their power and beyond their power to make sure McCain won every state. I was heavily involved in the Republican party all the way up to Minnesota's state convention. I saw so much corruption and manipulation. The people's voice did not give McCain the nomination, the GOP (and those behind the scenes) did.
