I Hate Always Being Right - Part 2

I hate always being right. I mean, it is really difficult to watch stupid people do stupid things and know I am powerless to do anything about it.

--

Case in point, the 2000 Presidential Election. I had always been a loyal Republican voter. I voted for Bush Sr. twice, though I never really liked him (I guess I liked him in 1988, but by the time 1992 came around I was not too sure). In 1996, I voted for Dole, even though I didn't think he was that great. However, in 2000, I could not submit to the GOP and vote for their candidate.

--

Why you ask?

--

Because I knew.

--

I knew he was not qualified to be president, and I was right. Now I did not vote for Gore either, but looking back, I think we may have been better off if Gore won. I think in the post 9/11 world (yes, it would have happened despite what Michael Moore and Charlie Sheen think) the liberal agenda would have been exposed and Gore would have been defeated in 2004, by someone other than W.

--

In the eight years since he took office, Bush has been the worst President ever. He increased the size of government during his first term, not once vetoing any pork filled bill the idiots in Congress sent him. Now as his term draws to a close, we find ourselves in the middle of a war that was unnecessary, and possibly criminal. Our economy is choking, gasoline is almost $5 per gallon, and the dollar has no value in the rest of the world. He and the rest of his goons (sorry Condi, but you hitched your wagon to the wrong star) have ruined the Republican Party. Now in 2008, the presidential choices are between an America hating, far left wing liberal nut, and an America loving, far left wing liberal nut. Sorry, but no matter what the mainstream media tell you, McCain is a liberal.

--

So now, our only hope is that Obama takes office and the liberal agenda get exposed for the smoke and mirrors it really is. We can hope that the Democrats are exposed as the Power hungry nut cases that want to control our lives, and after four more miserable years, a Republican candidate can come along and restore the party to the Reagan era.

--

However, too many things have to happen for this reality to be realized. The first is that the people need to wake up and see that the liberal agenda is a farce. There is no such thing as man made global warming. Also, no one should be allowed to vote unless they know who Neville Chamberlain is. If they do, and they still believe in Obama, they are mentally disturbed or grossly uninformed.

--

The next thing is that the Republican Party needs to move its platform back to conservative ideals. Dump the religious right. They are all rich hypocrites. We need to return to a constructionist policy and follow the Constitution. We need to expose the wacko environmentalists. The "War on Terror" is a bunch of nonsense, throw it out, it does not work. The war is on Islamofacisim. Call it what it is.

--

Finally, find candidates who can communicate to the American people and foreign leaders. Someone who can speak and think at a high level, yet do it clearly and concisely and can be simple to understand.

--

I don't know if we will ever find another Reagan, but we need to do better than George W. Bush. The only good news is it can't get any worse.

--

Can it?

Oh it can! If people don't wake up and let B. Hussein Obama become President. This man may be even more incompetent than Jimmy Carter. He scares the hell out of me. Not only should he NOT become President, but he should Not be a Senator. And this is why, not in any special order:
1. He knows nothing about history.
2. As a senator he signs bills he has never read (case in point- Hanford nuclear waste clean-up)
3. He thinks there are 57 states!
4. He said, Iran doesn’t “pose a serious threat to us.”
5. He is an appeaser (Neville Chamberlain syndrome).
6. He has not gone to Iraq since 2006.
7. He has made racist comments about white blue collar Americans.
8. As a child he attended a Muslim school.
9. His wife is an America hater.
10. He has an un-American name (the president of the U.S.A. should have an American name!)
11. He is a bold faced liar. (He has all ready contradicted some things he wrote in his bio)
12. He claimed his uncle helped to liberate Auschwitz. Auschwitz was liberated by the red army. Was his uncle in the red army?
I could go on and on, but I think you get the point.

I'll be honest, I really don't think Obama will be the next president for the same reason I didn't think Hilary would be the next president.....the old guard will not allow an African-American or woman to be president. I don't think it's a matter of qualifications in this reason, I think it's 232 years of the country being run by a certain type of person, a certain color and gender. A lot of people I have talked to (Black, White, Male, Female, etc) feel the same way.

For the record, I could care less about a person's race, gender, or ethnicity, I care about the qualifications that candidate has to hold office. I don't think Obama has the experience and McCain does. Is McCain the choice? Not sure but if Gore ran in this election, I think he would win easily.
