    No, you're pretty much a right-winger.

    Sarah Palin for Commander-in-chief? How could you even consider that Palin has a clue what to do? I bet she would be impeached within 6 months after she got a bunch of troops killed from being the moron that she is.

    I'm not a right-winger, not even an American, but I'd vote for her if I could. I'd vote for Dubya for another term if I could.
    But not McCain. He was scary. Push-the-red-button, apocalyptic-end-days and all-holding-hands kind of scary.

    Sorry, but I'm glad you aren't American, and even more glad that you can't vote.

    Me too. About the can't vote thing, I mean. I have enough problem with Canadian politics, trying to find a reason to participate, but US politics is 'way more polarized and strident and over-important. Hell, a guy could get caught up in it all and start thinking it mattered.
    About the being American thing, I think I could work around that. I wouldn't have to learn to yodel when I was singing, would I?

    Well, I am not a conservative, I am a libertarian. Ted Cruz is a strong ally on some issues, but no more than that. The tea parties had started off as a populist-libertarian movement, and then - after showing their potential as a political vehicle -had been hijacked (on the level of national coverage) by Republican pols who have no libertarian bone in their bodies. I call it "bachmannization".

    Now, Palin is not the worst of these opportunists, by far. But objectively speaking, she had helped both to caricature tea parties as a horde of dimwitted reactionaries and to attract people who don't give a hoot about the initial Number One Rule: Tea parties are about fiscal responsibility and limited government; take social conservatism, anti-immigration rants, etc elsewhere.

    You're right about that. Nothing we do matters. Nothing. We kid ourselves by thinking that our votes count, and what we do matters, but honestly, it just doesn't. Our votes don't matter. Our voices aren't heard. I've become very cynical about the entire notion of democracy.

    Democracy might work on a municipal level but it can't survive party politics. If you vote, you're not voting for someone to represent your constituency, you're voting for someone who represents their party. If their party line disagrees with what's good for your town/county/state, too bad. You have no representation.
    Aah, geez, don't get me started...

    True. By the time the politicians get to the national level, they are way too far gone.

    Who is going to get away with running for office on two simple issues?

    It's simple standing by candidates who've never been tested because they never came close to having a shot at the presidency.
