I understand. It is hard to find any important difference. I still say this, Dems urge 60% of what I believe in, GOP 10%. So I vote Dem.
But in regard to Florida in 00' Katherine Harris was responsible for purging the voter roles of 8,000 supposed felons 90 % being black makes
the 537 vote variance meaningless. Jeb ultimately was responsible for his brother's success.
Well, we all agree blood is thicker than water.
Notice now how if Katherine Harris were on fire Repub. wouldn't spit on her to put it out! Getting off topic here sorry!
She is a wealthy woman. Inherited money. She is planning to spend $2 million of her own money - the GOP has backed off supporting her - in a senate
primary race upcoming soon. Her House staff has quit her and all that agreed to be interviewed say she is one stubborn b***h. I won’t be voting in
the GOP primary.
Look, Y/A, America is not Europe. We lost 145,000 men in WW1. France, Great Britain and Germany each lost about 1/3rd of the men of marrying age.
2-3 million men each. That made a lot of young woman who wanted families very unhappy. WW 2 saw Germany lose over 5 million men of marriageable age.
We lost 450,000 men out of a population 3 times that of Germany. For me, this is the reason Europeans have given up on religion and war. For us, both
still seem to work.
