POLITICAL CHOICES AHEAD....FECES OR DUNG?

Well, it is pretty obvious that the Republikrats learned absolutely nothing from the mid-term elections. As if they haven't turned off and spit upon their conservative base enough, look at who they are trying to run as presidential material.

In this corner we have Rudy "Da Nu Yawk Gooomball" with his fine record of banning guns and supporting gays and abortion, guaranteed conservative crowd pleasers; we won't even go into his personal life. Then there's John "The Manchurian Candidate" , one of the Keating 5 from the now forgotten Savings & Loan scandal, media "Maverick" who is real close to Billy Jeff Bubba Bob Klinton when it comes to his deeply-held "Core Values"; i.e. "I'm saying whatever the polls are saying today." Last and certainly least is Mit the pet "RINO", Republican in Name Only. Now really, has anything good come out of Taxachussettes in the past 150 years? I see he just recently joined the NRA to show his long-term deeply held convictions about the 2nd Amendment, which he just now discovered might bring him a few votes.

The only halfway decent folks the Republikrats are running are Tom Tancredo and Ron Paul, either one of which I would come back to the Republikrat Party to vote for. Neither one, of course, has a snowball's chance in Hades of even getting support. Both the mainstream media and the Republikan Party blue-blood old-money snobs loathe real conservatives, just like they did Ronald Reagan, who certainly did better than any of the flunkies they wanted to run.

And in the Red corner...hoooo boy...The Wicked Witch of the East. I do not use the term evil lightly, but in this case I find it justified. Even fellow Demonrats are getting disgusted with this megalamaniac. On the other side of the coin, we have Hussein Obama, whose claim to fame seems to be mainly, "Hey, I've never been indicted for anything." To top it all off, the Dems had a muslin Iman give the opening "prayers" at their convention. To thos who may have been living under a rock for the past 30 years, the "Religion of Peace" calls us the Great Satan, has called for us to be destroyed, and has committed numerous acts of terrorism that cost thousands of lives.

Meanwhile, let's check out who we've already got "leading" the nation. We won't even bother to beat the dead Bush horse; I have trouble even finding the hard-core Bushies who once defended him. So how about Nancy Pelosi's "The Most Ethical Congress in History"? As a short aside, how come during 8 years of scandals and mysterious deaths the press never mentioned Bill Clinton's first inagural promise to have "The Most Ethical Administration in History"?

Anyway, of the 535 boys and girls on the Hill, 36 have been accused of spousal abuse, 7 have been arrested for fraud, 19 are bad check writers, 117 have helped bankrupt at least 2 businesses, 3 have done time for assault, 71 have such bad credit they can't get a credit card, 14 have been arrested on drug charges, 8 have been caught shoplifting, 21 are currently undergoing lawsuits, and 84 have been arrested for drunk driving. And yet they somehow know better than us peasants who have to play by the rules, and legislate how we live (they exempt themselves from the laws they pass), and can be "responsible" for billions of our tax dollars?

Anyone noticing a trend here? Like maybe the Federal Government is rapidly spinning out of control? And when given a choice to cast your vote for either feces or dung, does it really even count for anything anymore?

Bawb,

I tend to agree with you. The choices for elected officials seems to be choosing the lessor of two evils. But even then, there is so much gridlock among our representitives that nothing gets done. So does it really matter? But I'm not giving up...I have hope that this country will grow some balls and quit worrying so much what the world thinks of us and get back to doing what's best for us.

If Rudy or McCain get the nomination I wonder what the NRA will do. Neither is a friend of the Second Amendment. Rudy even stood in the way of the NRA opening its store in Times Square when he was mayor, since that wouldn't have been "appropriate." And of course McCain sought to close the "gunshow loophole" (i.e. gun sales from one individual to another) and penned the McCain-Feingold legislation that binds and gags groups like the NRA. Since the Democrat candidate will likely not be any better than these two bums, will the NRA grow a pair and endorse a Libertarian Party or Constitution Party candidate, placing principle ahead of politics?

"reason" magazine this month ran a scathing article on McCain. They had an interesting quote from Senator McCain, while defending his "campaign finance reform" law (a.k.a. The Incumbent Protection Act), he said: "I would rather have a clean government than one... where 'First Amendment rights' are being respected that has become corrupt. If I had my choice I'd rather have a clean government." In other words he'll take "clean" tyranny over dirty democracy any day. This is the guy who took over Barry Goldwater's Senate seat? What a shame!
