can any one say greenparty?
dang..................spend 2 days in a religious discussion on another site and i come back to this..............geez..........
more conserned about the local county sheriffs and attorneys races myself, in one corner you have a guy that our last editor(in private) refered to him and his buddies as the Nazi b@#$@#& and the Gestapo, i think she was being kind, so far looks like he is going to win. the other guy is a down to earth type that i really like.
as far as attorneys, you have a guy who has done a good job for the last 4 years with prosicuting case and such, collecting on bounced checks, enforcing parol violations ect but managed to be beat out in the primarys by a tax lawyer that hates court and wants to work part time.
i think the local election would prolly have bigger consiquences on my personal life than most any presidential election.
Heartily agreed; if I have a choice between a "normal" politician who just trumpets one side and someone like Obama who can consider both sides of an issue and seriously weigh them, I'll vote for the latter, even if their views are more divergent from mine. I'd rather have someone who actually *thinks* than someone who, by coincidence happens to blurt out things I agree with.Originally Posted by [b
But shouldn't candidates be judged on how effectively they govern? If someone's record indicates they're willing to break all the promises they made to voters last time, why should I listen to his promises this time?Originally Posted by [b

The Green Party's problem isn't that it worries about one thing, because it's actually incapable of focusing on anything. *I used to be a Green and they'd drive me nuts. *If we had a meeting of four people (a large Green gathering) to decide on our single greatest priority, we'd come out of the meeting with 20 priorities. *There's a congenital defect in Greens that makes them incapable of accepting any kind of centralized decison making.
I'll vote for anyone who'd actually try to change the country's direction. *Even if it's a highly armed bear that just took out a hatchery. *But that rules out the Republican party and pretty much any national level Democrat I can think of too. *It's too bad Paul Wellstone isn't with us anymore.
As for only allowing people with the highest brain power to vote; that's just insane. *There's no ignorance like the ignorance of people who think they're the best.

OHHH GOD!! It's almost that time again when I have to punch some of my friends here in the nose, and then they punch me back. OH GOD I hate Election years, especially since it's not really 1 year but almost 2 and 1/2.
Watch out Rattler, I'll be really coming after you this year.
Any way here goes.
I didn't read the whole topic, it was giving me a headache. So if I repeat what somebody else has said, I'm sorry.
Statements I totally agree with.

Now things I'd like to comment on.
That sounds exactly like something I said. If you change the Obamba dude for Colon Powell and Dem to Rep. You'll have what I said. The only republican I'd even consider voting for is Powell, but he's way too smart to run for president.Originally Posted by [b
I guess that you won't be voting.Originally Posted by [b
Yeah I haven't met Mr. Bush either.Originally Posted by [b
Oh I don't know if I have ever stated my opinion of Bush here on the forums before......Oh nevermind If I get started I'll be typing about that DOPE all night. Besides if I give my true feelings about him the secret service would come here and arrest me.
speaking of dope shall we toss in legalization while we are at it? Mokele's talking about arming bears which is going to add more entertainment to my hunting season than i think i can handle so i want to be stoned while ducking and weaving, tucking and rolling and all that trying to fill my freezer
Plus, with Warner out, Obama is out last hope for a non-Hillary ticket (I loved her husband's presidency to death, but she's just as polarizing as Bush and that's not what we need right now).

lmao *Rattler that is funny.
Bruce I am not saying only let the inteligent people vote. *I am just saying that some people really do not have the info to vote. *Some don't have the brain power to take care fo themselves much less vote for someone, and I am not talking about "special" people either. *I am talking about some of these morons around the country that literaly do not know their behind from a hole in the ground. *I went in and finished an operation on a guy just a few hours ago who could not read or write. *How can he truely make an informed choice? *From what the docs knew of him too his wife wasn't any better. *I am not saying I think I am more inteligent than some people, I know I am more inteligent than some people. *Inteligence is more than just book smarts too.
Ozzy I would vote for Powel too if he was to run, but I don;t think he could get much done in office either. *All the power is in Congress and we need to clear out those old farts with term limits.
Oh LORD I hope Hillary doesn't win it. The sad thing is my wife might vote for her.
