Heinlein wrote this near forty years ago, using colloquialisms of speech from fifty years prior. And amazingly it's still fully true today. In general we get Businesses Politician = Republican and Reform Politician = Democrat

When Obama is not busy appeasing militant Islamists and making timid statements against other terrorist nations or organizations, he is busy encroaching on individual rights and the conditions under which American business must operate. Obama is going “soft” on potential enemies abroad, taking a policy of appeasement that is likely to invite attack. He is riding roughshod on individual rights of citizens at home. He has this back-assward.

"It’s not often that we’re treated to this spectacular an example of how absurd it is to put any faith in elections, democracy, and “majority rule.”
"First, it must be pointed out that even if there were a perfect way for democracy to be administered, it would still be utterly immoral and completely illegitimate. As Benjamin Franklin put it, democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. To put it even more bluntly, there’s another good example of true democracy in action: gang rape.

The Founders declared Individualism and Individual Rights as the starting point. Our presidential candidates have replaced these with “country first” and “public service.” Rather than enabling us to produce and trade, they want to redistribute our wealth. If they persist in their madness we will soon have no economy, no life of our own. We will have no Liberty and our own Happiness will be almost impossible to pursue. What kind of Life is that?

In this Year of National Elections, this political horoscope is presented as a public service in an effort to successfully plot the course for all who aspire to political activism. ARIES (sign of the sheared Sheeple) – The moon and stars and unmanned space probes are aligned. You are fated to run for city council because others see you as a natural leader. Those others may be your Mom, your special-needs half brother and your baby sister, but, hey, you're a bleating heart liberal.

"McCain's falsehoods on health care, oil companies, trade, taxes and worker training were egregious and covered up his pro-corporate positions."
"Under McCain's Plan, Health Insurance Benefits Would be Taxed For The First Time, Resulting In A $3.6 Trillion Tax Increase On Working Families. McCain's health care plan would eliminate the payroll deduction on health care benefits, which would have the effect of raising taxes on working families by $3.6 trillion. [New York Times, 5/1/08]"

Alright! Wow! Haha. What a great looking audience. My name is Hill Larrius and it’s great to be here in Vegas! Whoo! Hey, what’s up with these crazy presidential candidates? We have this McCain guy for the Republicans, right? Now, I’m not gonna say he’s old, cause he really didn’t fight in the Civil War, right? Hell no! He was already way too old for that war, see? Hahaha. Then over here we have this Democrat, Obama, who keeps promising change. So if we elect him president we’ll have change, right? Like he’ll raise our taxes and all we’ll have left in our pockets is change. Hahaha! Ooooh. Hey, don’t get mad at me, I’m just the messenger here. So what’s to know about this election? You want old you vote for the old guy. You want change you vote for the change guy. Baddaboom! Easy! Haha!

When I ran for president in 2004 on the Personal Choice Party ticket,
people would ask me, "Why are you running? There's already a
libertarian in this race."
Certainly they had a point.
But now, four years later, as the nominee of the Boston Tea Party, I
could give you 100 reasons why I'm in this race. And every day, it
seems like there's a new one.
I believe, as I'm sure you do, that we need a presidential candidate
who champions liberty. After all, how many people became libertarians
thanks to the presidential campaigns of men like David Bergland, Harry
Browne, and Ron Paul?

Who are Barack Obama's supporters? Picture an old 1950s era b&w Zombie movie. The Undead rise from their graves, begin lurching forward, arms outstretched, eyes vacant, all murmuring eerily in unison, "Change, change, change…" Except Obama's Zombies don't rise from graves. They emerge from high schools and colleges and Hollywood soundstages and media centers. Much has been made of Obama's appeal to American youth. His hook is emotion and vague idealism, which works well on people loaded with emotion and vague idealism but little in the way of experience and genuine knowledge. A generation that barely discerns between Bambi and actual rutting deer can't be expected to distinguish charisma from substance.

Our favorite libertarian non-Libertarian, Ron Paul, has more to teach us all. He can do still more to educate. Keep him going. Now we can forget his nominal Republican label. Just think of him as the best Texas straight talker and most libertarian thinking in the public eye. Come November, if you do vote (not voting is fine with me), but are tempted by None Of The Above (NOTA), consider writing in Ron Paul for President.
