I don't know a single person who is excited about the 2008 elections. The candidates are stumping throughout the country and hardly anyone except the
media gives a d@*n. Even the people I know who are mildly interested are really just against one particular person or another but they are not
any one candidate. No matter the political affiliation, each candidate repeats the same generic cliches'.
There is really little difference between the two parties - they are just different sides of the same coin. If you doubt this, just look at how Bush
has failed to veto any spending bill and has amassed a huge Federal deficit, not a traditional Republican stance. Meanwhile, the Democrats gave the
President even more surveillance powers than he even asked for this summer. Thanks for that.
I found this site to be very interesting and illustrative of how many people, including myself, are feeling these days. (I hope it posts!)
- What do we really
want to hear a candidate say? What would make you shout hallelujah and pull the lever?
- Should the traditional political parties be redefined to be more relevant to today's culture and values? If so, in what ways should each one revise
- How can we make it easier for a third party candidiate to get on the ballot in a national election?
I definitely want to hear a candidate say that he/she would close the borders immediately and document and fine all illegal immigrants currently in
the country. That might get my vote. As to the other questions, I'll leave that to wiser ATS members.
