RE: Political Preference -- Elephant or Donkey?

I am an independent, but I share a lot of Kirk's feelings as noted above in his post. I am less concerned with the Republican religious BS since I think these guys are about as sincere about their religious convictions as they are about their drunk driving and drug use convictions. It is all for their image of the moment, which, if it cost them a dollar or possibly a vote, they would find some way to assure you they were not really that religious afterall.

My concerns are focussed on disrupting the power of having a single party in control of the whole shooting match. This leaves you little in the way of real choices. So, unless there is a Republican I think is really a human being under the Republican Stepford Wives exterior with an independent mind and some guts to back it up (a standard that very few candidates from either major party meet), I am forced to vote Democratic.

RE: Political Preference -- Elephant or Donkey?

Crime does not pay ... as well as politics.

Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.

Being in politics is like being a football coach. You have to be smart enough to understand the game, and dumb enough to think it's important.

The problem with political jokes is they get elected.

Politics is not the art of the possible. It consists in choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable.

The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites'.

In politics you must always keep running with the pack. The moment that you falter and they sense that you are injured, the rest will turn on you like wolves.

RE: Political Preference -- Elephant or Donkey?

I agree on some things with republicans, on some things with democrats

Yeah -- I've been leaning in that direction myself. It's getting harder and harder to tell which Republicrat is which...
