12 Steps to Overcoming Addiction to Vote for the Lesser of 2 Evils

By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 10 September 2012

1.  Admit you are in a self-destructive relationship with the Democratic Party.

2.  Remove conflicting bumper stickers from your collection.  “Shut Down Guantanamo” and “Obama 2012” are mutually exclusive.

3.  Understand that kill lists and more unjust war is the wrong kind of change to believe in.

4.  Stop lying to yourself.  The President is not sucking up to the most powerful interests in the world because he loves you.

5.  Cut off all contact with Obama, Holder, Clinton and Pelosi.  No more phone calls or writing letters. They are aware of what they are doing and they just don't care what you think.

6.  Realize Obama is standing up and fighting.  Unfortunately, he’s fighting Afghans, Pakistanis, Yeminis, Somalis…in your name.

7.  No more excuses. The Republicans are not making Democrats increase domestic spying or deport record numbers of Latinos.

8.  Get over your romantic feelings for Democrats and their supposed commitment to poor people.  This election cycle, poverty is not on the agenda.

9.  Make a list of all war crimes committed under Bush. Cross out “Bush” and write in Obama.  Add support for indefinite detention without charge, expanded drone wars, and invasions of two more countries. It’s healthy to gag at it.

10.  Come to grips with this: The only thing scarier than the Republican Party ( a party full of climate-change deniers, fundamentalist woman-haters and gay-bashers, election stealers and racists ) is a party who continually moves to the right to accommodate them and gets Americans to go along in that direction.

11. Forgive yourself for being taken in by promises that were not delivered, and for ignoring troubling signs, because you wanted to believe in change.  But remember, insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results.

12. As a result of these steps, you can now carry the message to those who still suffer from an addiction to the Democratic Party. Nothing is as liberating as resisting an evil when you know it’s wrong.
