    Lynch Mobs Make Me Nervous

    Are people at home actually getting charged up from watching McCain's recent rallies? Whenever he mentions Obama, people in the crowd shout out things like 'terrorist!', 'socialist!', 'Muslim!', and so forth. These blind followers of McCain seem so fanatical to me that torches...

    Party System

    I truly believe the party system is the major problem we have in elections.  Both candidates speak of change, but since everyone votes along party lines in the senate and congress most of the time....what can actually change?  Unless we can convince our politicians that...

    Republicans Vs Democrats Tenants

    I hate American politics. Pat Buchanan once said in an article he wrote "Why should China follow us?" He's right. We've become a country where winning as part of a team is so important than winning as a whole. We forgot why we started playing our political game to begin with...

    Divided

    I don't talk about politics, but I'm going to say something loud - and on the internet - that I wish I could tell everyone. I wish I could speak the words, grab the word bubble, and smash it over everyone's head. 1. Vote. Everyone. You have to vote. If you don't, and you dare to...

    I am not at all surprised that former Governor Corzine (D-NJ) has stepped down from his position. MF Global. I don't speak acronyms but, I will admit, I called the scumbag a MF many a time when he was in office in the Dirty Jerz. "Jon Corzine has stepped down as head of MF...

    It's Empire Baby And This Train Ain't Stopping Until It Derails

    People seem confused and surprised by the political and economic trends of the last few decades, but its the classic transition from liberal democracy to empire dating back to ancient Rome. Like the US ancient Rome was a thriving democracy for the first 400 years of its existence...

    I was born and raised in Montana

    I Sincerely Hope This Isn't What the Founding Fathers Had In Mind

    Sometimes when I just sit and think about it, it can be hard for me to believe that this is seriously the system of government for the most powerful nation in the world (might have to update that in a decade or two *cough* China). I sincerely doubt that this was what the...

    Why

    I don't hate American politics in itself - I hate the way the intransigence and lack of willingness to work together that we see in America has infected Australian politics

    Politicians Suck

    Last election I got upset about Barack Obama, and I'm willing to admit I overdramatized, and that he's not as bad as I thought he would.  He's still a politician, and I think all the successful ones leave a stink behind them wherever they go.  That includes Sarah Palin, the...
