Okay, maybe not my worst nightmare… but this could still be very bad!

 

Worst Case: Hillary Clinton Vs Mitt Romney

Tied for Worst Case: Hillary Clinton Vs Mike Huckabee

Second Worst Case: Hillary Clinton Vs John McCain

 

At least in the second worst case I would be willing to vote for John McCain… but there is absolutely NO WAY I will vote for Romney or Huckabee! Thus, the nightmare, I may have to vote for Hillary!!! 

 

I don’t like Romney at all. I like Huckabee but dread the thought of him in power. I like McCain but do not agree with his politics all that much either. Personally, I feel that Hillary is the flips side of the same bad coin. 

 

Maybe it’s finally time to start that revolution.

It certainly is going to be interesting no matter how it shakes out.

Finding the VP running mates is going to add even more into the mix

Perhaps THIS time I will NOT vote! But I MUST, otherwise I will NOT be able to complain (or complement) and feel like I have the RIGHT to do so. DANG, this could be BAD.

It's scary to think that many people will vote for Clinton just because she is a woman, regardless of political views.

Ya know, it seems like most times I pick the losers (and even when I don’t, I still lose but that is another topic for another time). I would think this is a bad reflection on my character… except the people who usually win these elections often proved to be just as bad, or worse, than I expected them to be. This leaves me with the conclusion that it is the majority that has very bad tastes in leadership. It seem most of you all (the general public) are gluttons for punishment, you vote for the same kinds of jerks almost every time.

 

I mean, both Nixon and Bush won two terms each, just how sick are you people?

 

Anyway, I am a bit disappointed right now. Edwards dropped out of the running so now we are stuck with just two choices, Hillary or Obama, for the democratic nomination. As stated in other posts, I feel that Obama is the lesser of evils here but I still would have preferred Edwards to get the democratic nomination, and then on to win the White House. Oh well, as I said, I tend to root for the losers.

 

I vote for the people who I feel would be better for this country, and us, the people who live in it. I have no interest in voting for yet another pillage and plunderer of the people (our jobs and bank accounts) and of this planet (its resources), like the people most of you all vote for.

 

I mean, what is it with you all that you feel the better leader is the one that does his/her best to ruin our lives? Why do you vote for the people who are only out for power, profit, and to funnel our tax dollars into all their rich buddy’s bank accounts?

 

Most everyone notices how degraded our country, the USA, has become. Bridges falling down, or about to, from lack of upkeep, jobs going over sees at an ever increasing rate, skyrocketing cost of living but waged that do not even come close to keeping up, and the list goes on and on and on… and yet, you all keep voting for the same kind of jerks who have been doing this to us all along… those who favor big business profits over your well being and the betterment of this nation.

 

A vote for a republican is just asking for the same thing again. No matter who it is, a republican is out for big business, not you. Sadly, most democrats are not much better. In some ways, the democrats are actually worse… with all their excessive rules and regulations and endless tax increases… not just for the rich, but for everyone. Perhaps there really are no good choices to choose from and anyone we pick will ruin us in one way or another.

 

Still, I always try to pick the one I feel would be better for the people and not just another big business lackey. John Edwards was my pick this time… but very few of you would vote for him. My guess is that Obama won’t win either, because he is my second choice.

 

I am almost willing to be you sick masochists will vote for Romney as our next president. If you do, you will get exactly what you deserve… but unfortunately, your pick also affects the rest of us too… like a bad infection that just will not go away.

Very well put MAC. And I agree; our government HAS and IS doing a GREAT job at making OUR lives HORRIBLE. I also agree that it doesn't matter WHICH party is voted in, 'WE the PEOPLE' are the ones that will get the 'SHAFT' in the end. I am reminded how, despite what Bill Clinton said, despite what 'the MEDIA' proclaimed, crime did NOT go 'down', well, it didn't where I grew up, oh and the 'great economy' Mr Clinton brought in? Tell that to the jobless and homeless that STILL lived in and around Los Angeles. For instance; Compton NEVER had an 'economic upturn' during Clinton's time, nor during Reagan's time, nor EITHER of the Bush's terms. The projects in the middle of South Central Los Angeles, when I was growing up, were all FENCED IN after Clinton took office, but still, the ONLY people 'working' more were the dealers in that area.

Did it change miraculously when a Republican came in? Nope, but the 'only' thing I 'respected' was that the Republican Party has ALWAYS been upfront about who and what they are - they are all about big business and the thought that when big businesses are 'healthy' the economy might be healthy as well. Well of course, as in Communism, that ONLY works on paper, not so much in the 'real' world.

Now, the Democrats party REFUSES to tell even close to what they are about; power over every facet of our lives AT ANY COST! 'How can I say this, Walter?' you might ask. Well, look at the history- it was the Democrats that interred the Japanese American CITIZENS after the attack on Pearl Harbor. It was the Democrats that, in the 90s, made the welfare easy to get on and, with no incentives, had no reason to try to get OFF of welfare. And paying more money to HAVE more children, which lead to MORE people on welfare and having more children to put on welfare and, with that population explosion, made it harder to find a job since one had no time to get higher education to GET a job that paid better than welfare.

No, there ARE no 'good choices', there are only one or two that MIGHT cause LESS puking in our lives; well, a LITTLE less puking anyway.

Yeah, it is getting harder and harder to vote democratic... but at the same time, I feel that voting republican is like asking for even worse.

 

No, Republican Party is not all bad, nor is everything the Republican Party stands for bad, but the net effect of their philosophy is bad.

 

No, the democrats are not all bad and not everything they stand for is bad, but the net effect of their policies is bad.

 

How are "We The People" ever to win when both parties are a form of poison to us non-rich people of this country???

 

I used to be able to fool myself into thinking that those few things that the democrats stood for, that I agreed with, were enough. Now, I see more of what their policies do to us and I am no longer fooled.

 

Although I have never been able to support the republican way... I am at a point where I have to wonder which side really is the worst one... because it is clear to me now that neither party is the best one for me.

Personally, I want a party that would let ME 'Pursue Happiness' like it claims we have here in this country. I used to think that was the Republican way, let us ALL work as much or little as WE wanted, knowing that we were responsible for our OWN destinies (as long as Uncle Sugar' got his piece). Of course, that DID mean more big businesses, however it also meant it was 'easier' to own and operate a smaller business. Well in theory anyway. Then I 'matured' and realized that there WAS no party 'better' than the other, I do still like the 8 years of tax refunds, and I fear that if a Democrat take the presidency, I will 'kiss those refunds' goodbye. Gotta tell you though; getting money back these last eight years DID kinda make me feel I was one of those 'rich, UPPER income' people that the media claims were teh only ones getting tax breaks. ESPECIALLY since I know I am $300 away at any time these past years from BEING 'poverty stricken'. Ahh well, hopefully I will hear from one of my FIVE interviews this past week and I will be able to put INTO the system for ANOTHER 20-30 years!

I've been a lifelong Republican (no surprises there). I have voted for different parties, but my core values are shared by the Republican party.

This year I find myself in a quandary. How dishonest is it to change registration to Democrat in time for the primaries, and who would I vote for?

Helping Obama beat Hillary would certainly be satisfying. But then I might have trouble choosing between Obama and McCain come November. Not that I mind two decent choices.

Helping Hillary might ensure a McCain win, but what if it didn't? Do I have enough faith in the American people to see her for what she is? No, I don't. Some of the comments she's made lately would be career enders for most folks, and she floats right past them.

My wife has switched to Democrat, she'll stay with Obama in November, given the opportunity.

That's why I'm registered as independent. That way there is no weight given to either party.

Barack Obama keeps looking better and better, by comparison to Hillary, all the time.

 

Hillary Clinton seems to just get nastier and nastier as things get tough, what would she be like after a couple years of Presidential level challenges???

 

I really do not want to vote for John McCain but there is absolutely NO WAY I will ever vote for Hillary Clinton. No chance at all.

 

I may disagree with McCain on a few things but I think he is a better choice for President than Hillary Clinton is.

 

I really hope Obama wins the Democratic nomination so I don’t have to vote for a blasted republican!

Madam Clinton was in my neck of the woods today. In fact she spoke at one of the schools I have worked at. If I get a chance I'll have to ask around to find out what kind of stir having her there caused.

I found out today what kind of stir her visit caused. Of course they had the police, secret service and bomb dogs there. And of course the cleaners had to do the old spit shine of the area. Also things got fixed that had needed attention for years. Just for the last bit maybe they need to host VIPs more often.

My wife brought up an interesting point this morning.

We were watching her "3 A.M." ad and my wife said, "Hillary's in the midst of menopause. If she feels like I do at 3 A.M. I don't want her answering that phone."

I just thought I'd add this.
While waiting for my treatment today I overheard two older gentlemen talking about politics. They were both ex military and agreed that they would never vote for anyone who had not served their country. I'm really not surprised by that but I wonder about the percentage of current and ex military personnel who feel the same way.
