"Unless the Republicans can come up with someone better, I have to go with Obama '12. "
That is your summation? It is rhetorical. Nobody running for office really gives a shit about the conservative or liberal votes so you just go with "Obama '12" it won't make any difference. What if the Independents come up with somebody better? Hell, the Independents could dig Pat Paulsen from the grave and come up with something better than Obama".
I remember Pat Paulson's skits on the Smothers Brothers shows when I was a kid.
At the rate were going, and considering the rising level of incompetence in the White House, Pat Paulson, if he were still alive, would probably beat Obama in the 2012 Presidential election.
My frustration is the fact that alot of Americans have become engrained in the democrat party just like an Aunt and Uncle of mine.
They have no clue what the democrat party has evolved into, and doesn't really seem to care. All they do is repeat the same old mantra the democrats said back in the 1930's. It's amost pathological.
They just can't see how the Republican Party is, and in most legislation, illustrate that they are the Democrat Party of the 30's, 40's, and 1950's. But most of the time it's to no avail.
That's a huge problem in this country. Party loyalty.
Remember John Hagelin? Owner and designer of Enlightened Audio Designs products? John ran on the Natural Law Party ticket back in 1996. Actually, he had a few good ideas. John has alot of Libertarian leanings.
