    Hmm...

    Stacked cabinet and agencies with corporate executives responsible for overseeing the industries they'll go back to profiting from vs. Stacked cabinet and agencies with corporate executives responsible for overseeing the industries they'll go back to profiting from

    this suppose to be a choice?



    I notice a few people say they'd vote for GJ if these 2 were the choices. My question is, why not vote for GJ anyway? If everyone voted for the man who wouldn't vote for him because he hasn't been deemed "viable"by the talking box in their living room -- you never know what could happen?

    That is still not the point, it is merely opinion that a 3rd Bush or 2nd Clinton would do well. Not one that I share, you compound that with my concerns for aristocracy and we have a clear reason to be concerned. One that you rather stupidly ignore.

    I think there comes a time, at least those who are not hard core Reps or Dems that they just get tired of all this business as usual.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    But it is the point. You stipulated that if the election came down to Bush v Clinton, we have a problem with aristocracy. The candidates would have gone through the primary process in their respective parties and come out the other side. Your problem did center specifically on the two of them winning their nominations. You're whining about their last names.

    No, that is still not it but enjoy the ignorance of thinking we are not developing one hell of a problem here.

    That is hopefully a more common feeling than it used to be. How can we ever hope to change jack in America if we continue to elect people who represent business as usual?

    We can't, that is the sad part of all of this. Both parties owe their heart and soul to the money folks, to corporations, wall street, special interests, lobbyist, huge money donors. Neither party will do a thing to upset their sources of campaign cash.

    Oh the rhetoric might be different, but it is always with a wink, wink, nudge, nudge assurances to those who provide the money they won't step on their toes.

    That's probably because they remember a time not too long ago when the parties actually compromised with each other to get things done for the good of the people in this country, and they liked that idea. It must have been a childish thought, though, since it only seems to happen these days when they have to vote on something like exempting themselves from laws that the rest of us have to live by, and other personal self-interest things like perks and such. No partisan thinking there!
