I'm tired of these two bafoons (Obama and McCain) avoiding the issues that are important to this country. The politicians from both parties and the MSM insist on making issues out of reverends and stupid comments instead of concentrating on what effects the health and safety of our country. To hell with all of them.
You know Bill, Ron Paul may not be perfect, I may disagree with some of his ideas & he may not be a favorite to win the election, but as an honorable, gutsy & truthful man, he alone represents the spirit of this forum, IMO. We are unusual here in that his forum is filled with people who blaze their own trail, aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves & do some work, are not rich (born into privilege) & like to think for themselves rather than be told what is the right thing to do. (Hell.....If we did, we'd all be heating our homes with our old oil burners & paying $4,000-$8,000 to heat our homes this winter like every one else!)
As I said in an earlier post on a different thread: " I have decided that neither major party has "EARNED" my vote this November. Instead I will vote for an honest, very gutsy guy....Ron Paul. I do not agree with all of his ideas/policies but never have with any candidate but I refuse to throw away my vote on "The lessor of two evils" based on what the "Talking Heads" tell me about what my vote would mean, etc....BS!!
I trust Ron Paul to not just "mouth" what's popular or politically expedient this hour, or look me in the eye & lie, ...but to do the right an honorable thing........What a concept for a politician!!
I hope others here will rethink which "line" they are being "herded" into by the major political parties this year.
