In response to Neal Page's comment:
Agree. Our gov't is run by morons, without questions. Morons with agendas. Hmm. Sort of sounds like some here.
I will say this, even if the right guy wins tomorow, the real issue, the real problem is COngress and has been for a while now.
The president use to have more power, but a divisive tactic by BOTH parties, has really divided this country literally right down the middle, to the point they only have to cater to lobbyists in the swing states. It's like 4 or 5 states and it's the same ones in every election. Hmm.
It's also utterly ridiculous that the electoral college is still in existence. It does the exact opposite today of what it was intended to do 200 years ago. lol
How about we eliminate the electroal college, make lobbying public on tv (CSPAN) where we can here the sales pitchers by the lobbyists or it's illegal, and how about Senators go down to 4 year terms (from 6) with the idea that THEY TOO have term limits, and can't serve more than back to back terms of 4 years.
If they did those 3 things, the morons in COngress who show zero leadership for the people they represent, would be held far more accountable.
Problem is, they write the legislation.
How about we just put Tim McCarver, Jets fans, Sandusky, Congress all in a space ship and just push it out to space?
I like that idea. Think about this though no matter who wins or loses tomorrow half the country is gonna be happy and the other half is gonna be pissed.
