King Bush II and Queen Clinton II

The election circus is on full speed in the worlds mightiest country. Who will be the next  leader over our souls?

Is it only me who is worried about the fact that we might see another Clinton on the throne (and now I ain’t talking about her policies). During Reagan’s second time in office, Bush I was vice-president. Then he became President, then Clinton, then Bush II for 2 4-years periods, and now we might have another Clinton in the White House. During all of my 25 years on this planet there have been either a Bush OR a Clinton in the White House. Doesn’t that fact give you the creeps? I mentioned that fact to an American girl and I funnily called GWB for Bush II and she tried to remark me saying that; “No Carl, we don’t have Kings in the U.S.”! No, are you serious Sherlock? The re–election rate of incumbents is high. Political dynasties (Bush, Kennedy, Daley, Clinton etc.) flourish, suggesting a less–than–open system. Democracy and political freedom in America have to elaborate further …

    No, we do have kings. They’re called Kennedy’s, Clinton’s and Bush. What Americans and those outside of the U.S. may not realize is George H. W. Bush goes back to the Nixon White House when he was the ambassador to the U.N.

    This is proof that America is in need of a new revolution. The Democrats – Pelosi, Kennedy, Reid and the others as well as the Republicans need to be removed. This is not to be a violent revolution but a revolution with the power to vote. Oh, sorry. We can’t do that. Half of our population has decided that our government should think for us and give us free healthcare, raise our children and dictate how we should live.

    *LoL* you probably have a good reason for saying this. But isn’t it so that people are more interested in voting for local matters rather then on federal issues such as a Presidential election?

    If you are referring local as to local government then there is no difference between the federal and state. We take our right to vote for granted and don’t show up.

    As for issues; local matters affect us the quickest. This is why people in both parties stick to a few points and basically ignore bigger issues. It is only when this large slow ship has finally turned around that we take notice.

    Aha, OK. But I thought the voting rate for, for instance, picking a new governor or a mayor or a new school board was higher than on federal level?

    *hehe* people are ignorant for most things, in order to win as many votes as possible candidates have to be kind to their voters not letting them overexert themselves. 🙂

    Presidential elections garner more voters. It is quite interesting that on certain elections, cemeteries have been known to have very good voter turnout. By the way, I do admit that when it come to my turn to vote in the primaries I will elect no to. The choices will have been made by the time my state gets the chance. Oh, darn Fred Thompson and Kucinich are no longer in it.

    The saddest part about American politics is the fact we get caught up in stupid issues. Who really cares about creationsim or whether gays have a right to marry? If politicians would just stay away from it. There is one area that savvy politicians use to keep in power. This is the wasting tax payer money on worthless projects such as building a highway in some rural area or getting money to fight terror in their out of the way district.
