Well as always it has come down to the mudslinging dirtbag
political non-sense campaigning I have come to expect.
A candidate can never be satisfied with just trying to
shine him/herself, they always try to make their light shine
brighter by dimming the other guys. I guess that's just human
nature. It's a tit for tat world where nobody is the perfect
candidate. But it sure is funny how all the skeletons can
find their way out of the closet when it comes close to
election time.

I always hate election years not because I'm not expecting
an improvement in my country, but because I have grown
cold to the ways and means candidates go about campaigning.
The cold stab in the back has become routine. However it leaves
the average voter in a state of nightmare consciousness cause
they know it's coming and they hate it when it happens. But
I tend to bring out my raincoat in election years for that very
reason. As it tends to get a little deeper every year.

While I read all the campaign news articles here and in the MSM
and other places I just can't help getting sick to my stomach of
all the garbage I have to sift through in order to make an informed
decision of who gets my vote. Then when I have my mind made up
then I have to wonder if my vote really matters at all due to
electronic voting machine miscounting my vote and sways the elction
process in big government's favor no matter who I voted for.

But it seems as though my judgment for presidential candidates
have not been too good. Every year I vote my conscious and every
year, some other person wins. So I've come to the conclusion that
who ever I vote for IS NOT gonna be president. I have accepted this
as my fate for taking the time to do my homework and caring about it.

With that thought in mind, I do continue year after year to cast a ballot
in spite of my shortcomings. Shortcomings of the candidates also
play a role in that decision. While I do believe there are NO perfect
candidates running for the White House, I then am faced with a decision
of which one best suits the position based on the lessor of evils theory.

While Clinton may have her Whitewater and death list of associates and
Obama has his real estate deals and insider stock trades to promote
his stocks, Romney has his homosexuality benefits package, Huckabee
has his family torutring and killing dogs, Guliani has his 9/11 ties to
a conspiracy and the list goes on and on. I have come to the conclusion
that no matter how much info (dirt) you find out about a candidate, they
are indeed only human. While most voters are looking for some sort
of God-like image to fill that position. It is indeed unrealistic to think
that we will fill that position with what we ALL would consider the
best God for the job.

Speaking of God, maybe we should just ask our own God entity in
prayer to give us the answer to the question that we seek. Then maybe
our own faith can sift through the rising tide to find out the divine
intervention we desire. And then, only then will we really find ...
the lessor of evils.

All I want is someone who will stand up for our rights and put the government back in it's place. In servitude to us, the PEOPLE, the way it's supposed to be.

That's why I'm with Dr, Paul - good, bad, or ugly. He is the only one who sincerely gives a flying flip about the average Joe. History backs up that statement.
