    This is exactly why we need to stop paying so much in taxes. Too many in or government are merely using our money to play the political game, all the while demanding more of our money.

    Ron Paul probably isn't getting nominated. He is the Republican's Howard Dean. Rudy Guiliani probably will get nominated. Since half of the country voted for Bush because he didn't get a blow job, doesn't it stand to reason that half the country would vote for any of the Dems on that list based on the fact that they aren't a cross-dresser?

    This is another reason why Senators rarely get elected. Richardson came out pretty unscathed in this campaign because they don't have his pork record or federal voting record on file.

    Well, if McCain got the nom it would be senator vs. senator, and they're voting records would cancel each other out. I'm so sick of all of them already. This campaigning shouldn't even be starting for another 6 months. It's ridiculous to have it go on so long.

    Senators, typically are much more corrupt than Governors (who have to deal with and take responsibility for their actions). Which is why I tend to trust governors more. However, Mike Gravel, Mike Huckabee, and Ron Paul are still the only candidates really running on ideas and policy. And yet, they are all stuggling. Just goes to show how much Americans really care about the politics themselves. Instead, they vote the same way they vote for their American Idol favorites or for their favorite Real World idiot. Americans want to be entertained and want to see the people they hate crushed and humiliated.

    I think that's pretty accurate, but if our media would quit covering it like it was American Idol it would help. Most people don't really have time to pay attention to a lot of this shit. So all they get is the headlines. And unfortunately the candidates with the least money, who would also be the least beholden to their contributors are the ones that probably won't make it past New Hampshire. My feeling is that's one of the reasons they are ignored by the political media.

    How is Ron Paul like Howard Dean? Was he a frontrunner who lost it in Iowa! I don't remember Ron Paul being a frontrunner ever and never!

    :whistling:Maybe people should start listening to public broadcasting (npr and pbs).:whistling: Its probably the most balanced reporting of the news out there, but of course republicans have a problem with that because it doesn't totally reflect their views so that means its not balanced and we have to do something to stop it like cut off funding!:whistling:
