Campaign 2008

I don't usually do this... that is, I don't usually discuss my views on who I think should be running our country. As far as I'm concerned, who I want is my business and who you want is yours. But frankly, I'm thoroughly disgusted! This election, more than any prior, seems like same old same old politics. Here I am worrying about how I'm going to afford a $500 oil bill to heat my house while watching the equity on my house deflate due to a recession that everyone swears is not occurring and the politicians are saying they can fix what it is that THEY broke.

Lets do the roll call. We have two socialist Democratic contenders that want to tell me how to live my life. They tell me that they can take care of my problems with more laws and more government policy. Oh please! It's obvious to me that they are going to take more of my money and put it into programs that don't do a darn thing to help anyone. On the other side of the isle we have two conservative but I'm really liberal Republicans who want to tell me how to live my life except they will take more of my money and spend it on different programs. Last but certainly not least we have one Republican Constitutionalist who thinks I can figure out how to live my life on my own. He actually believes that I can make my own decisions. It's just unheard of! Unfortunately that one guy who has faith in We The People has been called crazy by the media and then completely ignored. You may not even know who it is that I'm referring to. That guy is Ron Paul.

So there it is. I'm throwing my hat in the ring with all those crazy 'Paulites' and hoping like crazy that somehow it'll make a difference.
