If I haven’t given enough reason to support my choice for the lesser evil this election, I just found another that confirmed it. This country is already getting so damned repressed that if you even mention sex, you’ll be shunned as a hedonist, a womanizer, or at least cause some idiot girl to wine and blush. I don’t advocate “free-love” or any crap like that, but I sure as hell do not advocate abstinence. That is one of the most disgusting concepts of religion, and by far, the most evil. To a rational man, sex is an expression of self-esteem—a celebration of himself and of existence. From Ayn Rand, “sex is the most profoundly selfish of all acts, an act which he cannot perform for any motive but his own enjoyment—just try to think of performing it in a spirit of selfless charity!—an act which is not possible in self-abasement, only in self-exaltation, only in the confidence of being desired and being worthy of desire.”
Well, there you have it. In love and war, Bush is a fool. This is what I read earlier: “Government aid toward organizations that promote abstinence has taken off since Bush took office. Led by a conservative, abstinence-driven wing of his political base, consisting largely of religious groups, Bush has invoked a program of direct federal aid to these community groups that support the anti-sex cause. The Clinton administration asked Congress for $60 million in abstinence advocating programs. For the fiscal year that began on Oct. 1 of this year, the Bush administration has asked for $272 million. That’s a lot of lack of sex.”
With Kerry, at least every Republic will stand against anything he tries to get through Congress. As I said before on the terrorism aspect, I do not think any other presidential nominee would have done better than Bush, but at this point in the game with Bush’s love of establishing theocracies, almost any one would do better continuing it.
