Democrat or Republican - the lesser of two evils

Democrat or Republican - the lesser of two evils

PostBy: lowfog01 On: Tue Aug 03, 2010 11:45 am

Yesterday one of the threads - Health care law could cost 100,000 + jobs. - drifted a little to the topic of either major political party being the lesser of two evils.

That thought seems to be on a lot of folk's minds and when I was web surfing this morning I came across this article by John Hawkins. I couldn’t say it better myself so I’m providing the link. Sometimes you have to dance with the devil to get out of hell. Dangerous, yes but do we have a better choice. Have a great day, Lisa

All you have to do is join the "Bourbon Party" and there will be less of both of the two evils. Now lets go watch some *censored*, drink some, and well we will have to vote on the rest.

A false choice. John McCain said it best. "We came to change Washington, and Washington changed us."

The Republicans can't be trusted. They've shown that over and over. The Democrats never were trustworthy so that's not an option either.

We need people to renounce both sides and listen to the people.

I agree and that's why I don't belong to either party. I vote for those individuals who most closely share my believes and ethical standards. Unfortunately, that's the Republicans right now although there have been some Democrats along the road. We have to redouble our efforts to get them all removed from office asap The Republicans remind me of the Johnny Dep character in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. He says something to the effect you could always trust a pirate because you always knew he would be lying but you can't trust a non pirate because you never knew when he'd be lying. The non pirate would lie when it suited his purposes. The same with our political system. I know the Democrats are lying but I never can trust the Republicans - are they lying or not? Therefore, I have to assume they always lie, too. Lisa
