America Votes - will you take the Red or the Blue Pill?


America votes today to decide who will represent and run their country for the next four years. As an outside observer it hasn't gone unnoticed by me that the Democratic Party is strongly associated with the color blue whilst the Republicans favor Red.

This prompted me to think of an analogy from the first Matrix movie where Neo is offered a choice of the red or the blue pill. Which is about where my analogy starts to fall apart if the blue pill represents the Democratic party and the red represents the Republicans.

Take the blue pill and the life you live now goes on, even though it's a lie. You can believe what you want to believe and remain blissfully ignorant that all is not what it seems. Another four years of the life you've been living under Obama.... hmmm... maybe there's some kind of conspiracy going on that you just don't even know exists?

Take the red pill and you'll get to stay in 'Wonderland' but you'll be shown the truth, the reality of what your world is. You get to see 'how deep the rabbit hole goes' as Morpheus put it, and it won't be easy to take in. Mitt Romney will prove the Democrats have no idea and will show you the reality of what it takes to run a country by making the hard decisions... like giving big bird a pay cut.

When you look at it like that you might think the red pill is the best option. Truth is better than ignorance right? But I'm pretty sure you'll be just like Cypher from the Matrix. If Mitt wins, a year or so in, you too will be asking yourself "Why oh why didn't I take the blue pill?"

Well I did say my analogy falls apart... if you're a Democrat supporter at least. Republicans might read this and think it's right on the money... because money is what it's all about... and big, strong armies too.
