Forum Post: Why I am voting for Obama

If you observe the televised game of Survivor, you quickly notice that the people who always get the votes at the end are the ones who did the most lying, backbiting, and general deception. The ones who played the hardest and tricked the most people. I feel the same way towards Obama. Obama has earned my respect, with the fact that he has any supporters at all. He has straight up lied to every one of his constituents, telling them their lives would improve, that he was anti war, or that he would end the assault on civil liberties.

All of this is well and good, all politicians lie their heads off. But it takes a master at mind control to "fool me twice" and make people like it. Because of this, Obama, you have earned my vote, and my respect.

I'm serious, I'll either vote Gary Johnson or Obama. Sort of a "Yee-haw", get it over with kind of thing.

Why would you want a "master of mind control" running the country? It sounds like you watched way too much Survivor.

It fascinates me how well he is able to say one thing and do the other. He's an excellent liar.

Have you ever seen Dr. Strangelove? You remind me of the guy riding the nuclear bomb at the end of the movie.

And the irony is, if no one else liked Obama, neither would I. He coalesces the masses into sheep herds willing to go along with anything he says. He's the ultimate cult leader.
