Feel free to discuss any candidate you like.

Proof that there are more to choose from than what the MSM gives you.

Wow, John Bowles from the list above has some....shall we say conflicting results.
(bolded by me)
This guy has high hopes!

  • Free Health-care
  • Zero Interest Mortgage Loans
  • No Foreclosure on Farms or Homes
  • Humanitarian Relocation of All Non-Whites
  • 5% Flat tax (no other taxes)
  • A Strong Constitutional Republic
  • Defending Traditional Marriage
  • A Strong Border Patrol
  • Break wage-slavery
  • No Outsourcing of American jobs
  • Zero Unemployment
  • Bring All the Troops Back Home
  • Reduce the Work Week to 32 Hours
  • No More Foreign Aid to Any Country
  • No More Separation of Church and State
  • A Strong Social Security System
  • Reduce the Retirement Age to 55
  • No Taxing of Overtime
  • Elimination of Anti-White Laws & Holidays
  • A Healthy Environment
  • The Right to Bear Arms Without Government Intrusion

He literally tries to cover every sector of every possible mindset in this country.
Most of which are associated with white supremacy (all that are bolded)

and many conflicting policies

A Strong Social Security System
Reduce the Retirement Age to 55

In fact, most of his platform for running is completely, and utterly ridiculous.
I guess its not just in the "main two" selections

This guy would make a wonderful president - if the south had won the civil war :shk:

Nothing huh?

Not even to discuss the "minor" MAJOR contenders ?

Nobody has an opinion on anything except for Obama and McCain?

I'm surprised....

Yes was having a look at McCains website the other day, he seems to be more focused on offshore drilling, this is all im seeing. I mean sure he mentions alternative energy every once in a while but its mostly "drill drill drill".

I just did a thread in above politic, I found that according to the EIA, and official oil statistics authority, it will take 10years overall for that oil to reach the pumps. Further more the decrease in fuel will be a mere 3/4cents and even that decrease will not last for long.

Also i found out that there had already been drilling in Alaskas northern slopes, Anwar is the only one left.

People put their own desperation before the overall good of the nation as a whole and its ironic you know, the drilling will not solve their money woes anytime soon.

The Colbert Report just did a HILARIOUS (but very informative) skit on the "drill drill drill"

Formidable Opponent

is the skit

very good stuff both comically and.... thoughtfully

Real good list there, Andrew!

You are paying much closer attention to the candidates than anyone I
know. As far as I'm concerned, I think the presidency is just a job. A very
important job, but just a job. And if the guy holding it screws up, he
should be fired, like any of the rest of us would be!

I don't think my vote really counts, but I WILL vote. By that, I mean there
are powers of great influence who have been behind the scenes for so
long, that no matter WHO gets elected, that person is "briefed", or "told"
what they will do as pres. by these powerful people.

And if that person dares to disagree, they risk losing everything. So they
comply, and dreams of "change" slowly turn into "the same old thing".
