Independent candidate

Since several people have mentioned Bill Richardson this mornig and the headlines this week have included several candidates throwing in the towel, perhaps the time is right to start this discussion.

What I would like to know is the following:

Who would you like to see run as an independent candidate?

Now this is a realistic question so let’s limit our responses to realistic answers.

I would appreciate if you would put your choice in the first line of your response as it makes it easy to count if this thread gets lengthy.

Running on fear

It appears that many candidates today are running on FEAR.

This is very troubling.

Fear was used to manipulate the electorate in the past so I’m guessing they believe they can do it again.

I predict as we get closer to November the FEAR FACTOR will greatly increase.

So what can be done about this? Can we be proactive in addressing this issue.

I don’t believe our next President should be elected because people are afraid.

After all, look what happened the last time our country did that.

A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Mr. Mike Huckabee’s down-home, folksy media image is just a façade. What he and his supporters REALLY want to accomplish is to turn our once great nation into a theofascist state based on a literal application of the Old and New Testaments…with divinely-appointed Mr. Huckabee presiding…all the while ripping the United States Constitution and the civil society it supports to shreds.

In short, the man is dangerous with a capital “D”, with the “D” standing for “Dominionism”.

No way to pick a President

The saddest commentary on the deteriorating state of politics in this country may stem from the hilarious fact that some so-called political experts actually thought Fred Dalton Thompson had a chance to be President.

Or it may have lurked in the miniscule – but fanatical – following who believed the fantasy that Dennis “the Menace” Kucinich could win the Democratic nomination.

It’s really scary out there

I don’t know about you, but the closer we get to finding out who will be the GOP and Democratic presidential nominees, the edgier I become.

As the mud flies, all the candidates seem to be shrinking in stature. Yesterday’s glimmerings of statesmen are today’s campaign flimflam artists.

As candidates drop by the wayside, those remaining are less like beacons of hope than spotlights aimed uncomfortably right at the eye.

Where, but where, to spend?

How would the U.S. government be spending money if it wasn’t fighting the Iraq War? Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., raised the question during Monday’s Democratic presidential debate in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

“We are spending $9 billion to $10 billion every month,” Obama said. “That’s money that could be going right here in South Carolina to lay broadband lines in rural communities, to put kids back to school.”

Is the war keeping federal money out of local communities? And if so, is the cost worth it?

When it’s time to quit

What kind of ego drives a man to continue for years to seek an office he has no chance of winning? Particularly when that job is the presidency of the United States, a position that requires the occupant to have masochistic tendencies?

Open Letter to Attractive Female Teachers

Society is rife with double standards. We all know that. And yet when common sense and full-blooded nature cry out for one — scream for one we can all ‘get behind’– it isn’t there. It’s missing.

I refer, of course, to the double standard by which it would be all right for female teachers to sleep with male students.

Now, some of you will immediately object, citing the so-called inability of a minor to give consent, and the so-called fact that such a teacher who sleeps with a teenage male must be driven by all sorts of pathological reasons to want to sleep with a ‘kid’.

Stop! Go! Beware!

With Mike Huckabee down and Fred Thompson out in Florida, Tuesday’s Sunshine State primary promises a three-way brawl among Rudolph Giuliani, John McCain and Mitt Romney. Voters there, and beyond, should regard these three candidates like lamps in a traffic signal.
