Christmas Shopping, Superbowl, and Presidential Elections

What do these things have in common? It is great when the season is over so I don’t have to listen to it anymore. No more Christmas music, no more half-hour news segment on who has shown up for the Superbowl, and no more infantile squabbling between the members of the American nobility running for King.

Last night one the bottles of poison on the table was removed, though not without some buffoonery. As punishment for moving their primary up the Democrats took all Florida's delegates away, so while a Democrat could still vote in Florida, the vote doesn’t carry much clout. It is nice to know that a political party can take your right to vote away if in an offhanded way, along with the closed primaries denying independents any kind of voice.

Considering the outcome of the Democrat non-primary maybe it is a good thing the Democrats did take the delegates away. Don’t get me wrong, I believe a woman president would be just as good, possibly better considering the past bunch of presidents, as a male president. I have no problem with a woman being in charge of anything, just that particular woman. She is right about one thing – it is past time for a big change in our government.

All the candidates have picked up on that and tout change, talking the talk they need to worm their way into the hearts of Americans. Their call for change is good, except there is a bit of a problem, a roadblock to change if you will. When elected he or she will face the same old congress, the same old senate, a rigged supreme court, and the same old special interest groups and lobbyists now waiting for them in Washington. Promising change is pleasing to the ear but a tall order. So this Tuesday pick your poison and be ready to take a big gulp in 08…

You would figure the senators running for presidency would figure that. But no, they want the clout that goes with the title and they want to run our country.

I'm hoping after all is said and done they pick the running mates I'm hoping they will.

How does Hillary and Obama sound?

What about McCain and Huckabee?

I'm surprised Hillary got the delegates for Florida, especially in my county.

You must also consider the Cuban vote. It was said on the news on Tuesday, if a republican wants to win in this state, they will have to work for it for the first time in 50 years.

We'll see what happens on election day.

Will Florida be the laughing stock on election day again?

I guess you could say I'm passionate about who will run for president this time. I'm paying close attention to who is doing what.

I haven't watched any of the debates yet, but I may at sometime, we'll see.

I think americas election are always very funny. The one who gives away the biggest amount of balloons and candy wins ;)

would be fun... if it wouldn't be so important for so many people. so it's more 'scarry shit', if you know what I mean.

good point that you make with all the old guys that will await the new president. Not only the old guys... I think the new president will await a lot of 'old' problems. But yeah, there was no time and money to solve such things in the last decade :(

wish you luck, america

I feel for you. The day the tree was gone in our house was a very good day; but you poor things have to put up with all the election rubbish to follow. Election campaigns here usually last for a couple of months, the really annoying bits for a fortnight. These people must be stopped. They're all bastards anyway..
