Who will be best for reenactors?
« on: March 04, 2008, 07:06:05 PM »
I am leaning towards Obama -- I know many will disagree, but in my humble opinion, Hillary will be the doom of this country w/ her Maoist ideas and McCain, well I'm sorry, but he's a liberal in conservative's clothing... that along w/ the fact I just can't shake the "Manchurian Candidate" idea  :-[ Also, John McCain is NOT for gun owner's rights... Where do we go? What do YOU think? (politely please)

The Democratic Party has evolved into the Communist/Socialist Party while the Republican Party had changed into the old Democrat Party. Obama is way worse then Clinton but doubt the Republican base will allow "old fart" McCain to do anything to gunowners rights.

Strangely enough, not all Democrats. Ron Paul has no chance... as for rest, we'll just have to see. Too bad people won't join th NRA... oh well, ya cannot win.

Well, I listened to the debates for both parties :'(. As a Social Studies teacher I will honestly say the Democrats are very much communist/socialist in their views and nieve in how to get the country out of debt (raise taxes and give to the poor). Aftr 18 years as a member of the party, I switched to Republican because I feel that we made it through education and hard work so the poor need to strive to make it to middle class on their own without government help, getting the Hispanic vote by allowing illegals to stay and get driver's license, etc. is out of the question and the gun laws the Dem's have made in NY and NJ are becoming just like the ones in the Third Reich (eventually none to be allowed). The old Republican base will keep their candidate grounded because right now he can't do a thing without them. So looks like McCain's b***s are tied to the wall you might say.

Wow! Gotta say that I agree with Antonescu 100 percent.  Great description of the Republicans!  Soooo.... what is there to do, given the crappy choices that we're stuck with?  Like it or not, it's pretty much a two party show, here.

I'll go with McCain. He may not be the best choice but Obama doesn't promise anything good and we've already had a "taste" of Clinton so we know what she's capable of (and no doubt will try).

Yeah...  Guess McCain gets my vote by default.  --Just kind of sucks to pick the lesser evil and vote against the greater evil!  It'd sure be nice for a change, to cast a vote FOR something/someone, instead of voting a " damage control " vote to hope & try to keep things from getting more ridiculous.  I dunno... I'll probably not be satisfied with anything or anyone unless I get to be made dictator, or barring that, George Carlin gets elected president.... 0|

Thing is, I don't think it matters anymore. Well, not much... Congress is the one who does the law making and money-taking. ANyway, I supported GW and now am tired of it... time to go w/ someone who's for change. Flip a coin, as long as one side of that doesn't have the witch on it.

I agree too many Americans are falling prey to Commie / Pinko Ideas. It was only sometime ago we fought against this thinking, Cold War.
 Maybe I'll write in Al Bundy from the old  TV series "Married With Children." as president.

I would suggest Captain America as a write in candidate. He fights for American values! ;D

The National election this year is exactly like one many years ago - nixon vs mcgovern.  You either voted for a lying thieving bastard or a socialist/pro communist.  I voted for the bastard and fortunately he won.
I'll make the same choice this year and vote for "The Manchurian Candidate" and HOPE he wins.    ;-(    0|

I only wish I got to vote in this election... So please do take everything I say with the fact that I am a LEGAL resident, who is not a citizen and hence does not have voting rights in the next US election.

The Democrats in this country are way too much maligned. Yeah, they're leftist, but even if they win, the system is set up in such a way that they CAN NOT affect change to the degree that the "they're commies" crowd seems to paint their party with.

As for commies, the Democrats were AGAINST the patriot act. I'm sorry, but Republicans that preach of their freedom their party stands for and applaudes the  Republican party for it's results are in a very bad need of a reality check.

While I am for the retaining of freedom to bear arms, I am also for personal liberty. The Democrats can not and will not ever get enough power to effectively make any national changes to gun control laws, the Republicans have successfully managed to instill more anti-freedom laws in the last 8 years than any WESTERN political party since Germany in the late 1930s. That is not a slam, that is a fact.

I am a non-partisan voter when I have the power to vote (as in my home country)... There are times when I would definately lean more to voting more to the Republican way of thinking than the Democratic way. But the US has moved a little too far to the right in recent years, and it is high time it gets a little leftist influence to balance it out again.

If you want to complain about the economy. There is ONLY ONE solution to that problem. Military spending. The country's economay CAN NOT SUPPORT two active wars (Iraq and Afganistan, with other possible wars looming on the horizon). That is not an anti-war statement, it is just a fact of numbers.

The economy problem is NOT so much the wars, but the price of fuel. THAT is causing (and will cause MORE) a lot of woe. Hell, as a truck driver I can tell you that there is talk of shutting down all trucks on April 3rd. We'll see... if they did it -- if they had cojones like French truck drivers, well, we might get somewhere, but I have my doubts about my brethren.
