One possibility to consider is that people just need someone to believe in.
We get divided by labels like liberal, conservitive, republican, democrat, etc. But I think most intellegent people just want whats best for our
country. Unless we're in government ourselves, there isn't a lot we can do except try to elect the people who will do what is right and best for
everyone. If we took the time to keep informed of the issues, and vote for somebody, it can be a hard pill to swallow to realize we may have made a
I think I voted mostly republican up to 2000. I voted for Bush the first time. Between the election and before 9/11, I came to realize that the CIA
was bringing drugs into the US. That was my first shock. I began to get suspicious that no one was held accountable, why wasn't Bush doing anything
about that? Why didn't Clinton? By the time the Patriot Act was signed, I was 100% against Bush. So I look at other candidates with a more
suspicious eye. McCain? Kerry? No thanks. I was cautiously optimistic about Obama, but when he ditched his news entourage to meet with the
Bilderbergers before the election, I knew he was not going to be my guy.
Now, I like Ron Paul's position on the issues that are important to me. He has some positions that I don't agree with. If he had been elected
president, and did half the things he promised, I could see myself forgiving him for the half he didn't do. And if people criticized him for it, I
may jump to his defense, even though I might be wrong in doing so. It would just be an emotional response, because I would want so deeply to believe
that my guy is doing what's best for America. There's nothing wrong with wanting what's best for your country.
I give Obama supporters grief sometimes, but I can honestly say that I am jealous of them, too. They still have hope that this country will get
better. I'd like to feel that hope again some day.
