Although there is not much differenc between the parties the party that got us in the current situation was Bush and Bush had all branches under his power thus a rush to war.
We need a way to elect our president and the Electorical College is not the way to go.
We as a people can surely make the right decision using the popular vote. When the electorical college was formed this country was very small and people were not well educated (the ability to read) and things have changed since the founding of this country.

I’ve always said:
“The left and the right both suck. The right just sucks more.”
If you can define your politics in one word you don’t think about politics enough.

Bingo! Another on the nail’s head, Mr. Fish! Really, Ron Paul for president. I’d rather live with potheads than dickheads any old day.

Exactly. Right brain - left brain using no brains at all. So, Vern… pull both cartoon triggers so we can get something better than our playacting cartoon government.
