I get The Donald. I'd rather have Donald Duck, he at least would make me at least smile once in a while... All the Donald will do is make me sick to
my stomach, and try to register some of my freinds as possible dangers to his version of America. Which, most assuredly, isn't mine.
I get Hillary "I think voter are idiots" Rodham-Clinton. Most of you are aware of my opinions concerning this walking, talking canker sore...so I
won't repeat 'em here.
I get Bernie "Let's spend more money we don't have." Sanders. Clueless where international relations are concerned. 'course, that'd only make it
more of the same, wouldn't it?
Where is my generations Kennedy? Lincoln? Adams? Jefferson? Hell, at this point I'd settle for this generations Nixon... Sad, huh??
Are these three nitwits really the best the U.S. has to offer the world? Or even us? Really?
I think the consensus is we're in a deep squishy brown stuff brook without a wooden propulsion devise for canoes. Yet these are the best we can come
Yep. We're in deep kimshee...actually, I like kimchee, and this stuff they're shoveling ain't that good.
I'm kinda looking forward to the conventions... It'll be entertaining watching them attempt to put the good spin on whomever gets inflicted on us.
The inaugural? Oh, won't that just be fun to listen to?
Vote Trump--For a new America. No, Donald, your vision of America ain't mine. My friends don't need to wear armbands proclaiming them Muslims. So,
to coin a phrase? Go To Hell, Richboy. I wouldn't vote for you for dog catcher, 'cause I like dogs.
Vote Clinton-- Nope. You're an evil trull who I wouldn't trust with my cats litter box, much less the future of my country. Billary part two? God
Vote Sanders-- Of the three? The least unpalatable...like that's a saving grace? Clueless. Naive. Socialistic. Nope, sorry Bernie, not feelin'
I thought four and eight years ago was bad...
*sigh* (I seem to be doing that a lot...*sigh*)
Where's our Kennedy? Our Roosevelt (Teddy, not Franky...)? A leader who can, by sheer magnetism, and force of will, lead a nation out of it's dark
times. Our Lincoln? Even FD Roosevelt would be an improvement over our current crop of "leaders"...
I've always thought, or believed, that in our nations dark times someone would step up to be a leader. Some one who can see the course to lay...
Someone that even the opposition can respect, and when the times are worst, can work together with, to solve the problem manifesting. I suppose I
still, deep down in my heart of hearts, at least want to believe that. But it's getting harder, and harder, to believe that, to look around
and see if there is someone out there that I can believe in. Trust, even...so
far as any one in positions of power can be trusted, to do the job in a fashion that a majority can at least try to support.
So often now, our so-called leaders kow tow to their money, rather than the wishes of the majority of their constituency... ...and we, in our
seemingly blind stupidity allow them to continue to abuse our trust year after year after year...
Please, sir, may I have another??
I need a hero.
A Hercules capable of completing a series of impossible tasks. Of surmounting an impenetrable barrier where a demon lives. To do battle for
me, and mine, not interests that care nothing for the lives being cast away, nations ruined, generations inculcated in hate, and
avarice. Generations being split between the haves, and the I wants...with nothing in the middle seemingly.
A hero. Is it too much to ask for? To seek for?
Apparently, because many of us have stopped looking for a hero. Instead we've begun to settle. Settle for mediocrity. For less than stellar.
...and this is our reward.
Trump. Clinton. Sanders, and some other nitwits who barely rate a mention.
I need a hero. We need a hero. But no pressure...
Is that too much to ask for?

The only thing wrong with everything you said ? We havent given any one of them a chance , yet. How do we know what kind of job they will do ? The
short-quick answer , we dont. We spend all our time knocking down every single candidate , but we gotta have one to be the next President. Choose
whoever you wish , thats your choice. To choose none and sit this one out , that is your choice as well.

Yes it is a lot to ask for. However, not impossible.

Should Sanders win the Presidency, I will give him every chance to succeed before I go all anti- on him. Though, I suppose, my opening thread would
Not for the first time, I tend towards hyperbolic excess when frustrated/annoyed. You should hear me when caught in traffic....
The premise of my thread does, however, remain intact. If this is the best our major parties have to offer...? I fear for, not only my country, but
for the world...
As I said, Sanders is the least unpalatable of the three major party offerings...but that's not exactly a sterling endorsement.
I fear we are going to get exactly what we deserve come this November. I hope to be proven wrong in a resounding fashion. If I am, I will publicly
dine on metaphorical crow for the viewing pleasure of you all.
It's 3 am here in the lovely, and very dark, Pacific Northwest, and my thought process isn't the finest at the moment...if it ever is all that
great...so I'm going to call it a night/morning.
Thanks for this, i was in highschool when this Video came out on much music. I was at a friends house attempting to pot raid a green house at 13 at
the time, lol.
Something weird just happened. Some guy claiming to be new and a black sheep in his family etc just posted, i replied and said hey blah blah etc. and
then when i refreshed he disappeared and nothing i posted was left, it's like it all just Vanished.
Has this happened to anyone else?
And no, asking for a Hero isn't too much to ask for, i've been waiting for one all my life...

o.O We don't need a hero, we need a revolution. This country is run by victims of the public school system. The short bus to the capitol makes stops
at McDonalds for kids meals for crying out loud. We have been dumbed down to accept these little niches that chip away at our freedom, our living
comfort, and most of all our intelligence.
Its like waiting in a line to the sole Porto potty at a new Mexico chili cook off. We are willing to wait in line in great agony for the eventual
payoff which is a toilet that has been blasted with the green apple splatters from the previous 20 people ahead of us. Instead of rolling off to find
a bush with a good housekeeping in hand to claim our own private Idaho. ( I say Idaho because the whole state resembles a toilet and does not have
much use other than Delaware)
But do you understand what I'm saying? It used to be wrong to sleep with your sister, now people don't mind so much. Its confusing I know, but the
moral compass of this corporation that is America is flipping spins in all directions. We have lost focus as a people, thus we have lost focus through
our leaders. Its time to reset the whole damn system.
Its enough to make Journey stop believing....We need this line up
Chuck Norris for Pres
Ted Nuggent for VP
Jesse Ventura for Sec of State
Rand Paul for Sec of Treasury
Palin for Sec of the Interior
Sam Jackson for press Sec.
Henry Rollins for Sec Defense
A winning line up if I ever saw one. Now thats progress!
Good people don't run for president because it costs too much. The masses have been conditioned to judge presidential candidates based on appearance,
"feel good" rhetoric and exposure. The establishment has also made running this country similar to flying a 747 without training. You're the pilot,
but have to hire one hundred idiots to pull each lever.
