    Well I am doing my part as an "slightly liberal" person to get rid of Reid in Nevada in 2010. I can't say anyone else will.

    The sad part is when 2004 rolled around the Conservative/Republiocan crew didn't seem to have a problem keeping the Republican congress in charge. So what were your feelings then? Did you vote against the Republican congress then? Or just let it go?
    When I vote, I generally ask myself one question about the office I am about to vote for: Am I happy with what that body or office is doing for me, my family and of course my country. If an incumbent is running and I answer, Yes , I am happy, I will vote for the incumbent. If I answer NO, I am disappointed, then I will vote against the incumbent. Notice that I made no mention of party. If that office for which I am about to vote is open, then I will study to various candidates knowing full well they will say anything to get elected. I give you Bobo, who was on all sides of every issue.

    I started out early in life as a loyal Democrat. I got discussed with their way of doing business.

    I then thought I was a Republican. That did not work out all that well.

    I am now a proud member of my own political party: CLAPP!

    Conservative
    Libertarian
    American
    Progressive
    Party

    CLAPP for short.

    Our motto is: CLAPP. Get it and pass it on.

    We (there is only me) are a party of pragmatic Constitutionalists.

    Our guiding principle is: When in doubt, follow the Constitution.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Ah well I am not happy with people saying gay marriage should be illegal, since I had a brother die marriageless even though he was commited for over 35 years to his partner.

    I am not happy with those that make religion the priority of others.

    I am not happy with those that give priority to those that are religious.

    I am not happy with those that would let poor die to to save them some dollars on their paycheck.

    I am not happy with those that say "I have mine, **** everyone else".

    I am not happy with those that say "because you are poor, it must be because you want to be" Because I know this not to be true in all cases.

    I am not happy with those that dictate morality to me and say that smoking pot is bad, yet it is quite legal with society if I die drinking too much alcohol.

    I am not happy with those that say I can't smoke at a restaurant because they (not the owners) have deemed it to be that way.

    I am not happy when people don't want to take care of our poor.

    I am not happy when people feel they have the money and therefore should have the power to decide how our country goes forward just because they have money.

    I am not libertarian, I am not Republican, I am not a Dem. I am my own.

    You can have the Clap proudly for whatever I care, but I choose not to label myself loyal to any party

    Raw Story Spitzer: Federal Reserve is Ďa Ponzi scheme, an inside jobí
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAtSmR7Z-Kg"]YouTube - Eliot Spitzer Takes On The Fed - MSNBC w/ Dylan Ratigan (7/24/09)[/ame]

    The most poignant example for me is the AIG bailout, where they gave tens of billions of dollars that went right through ó conduit payments ó to the investment banks that are now solvent. We [taxpayers] didnít get stock in those banks, they didnít ask what was going on ó this begs and cries out for hard, tough examination.

    You look at the governing structure of the New York [Federal Reserve], it was run by the very banks that got the money. This is a Ponzi scheme, an inside job. It is outrageous, it is time for Congress to say enough of this. And to give them more power now is crazy.
