    Isn’t that the saddest state of affairs ever? We’ve become so cynical about the people running for president that we don’t even trust them before they’re elected.

    Now that the political machine has nothing to do with Democracy it doesn’t matter which fool is campaigning at the podium. It’s the Powers that Be that run this country. The fool elected to the White House is only a puppet and the American people know it.

    Quiz: Quick, tell me the one vital issue each Presidential Candidate believes in.

    Answer: Getting elected.

    I really want to believe in someone, but for the last four presidential election cycles, at least for me, its come down to voting for the lesser evil.

    I think you got that old adage slightly skewed up, Ollie. It’s voting for the “lesser of two weasels” is it not? (At least these days it is)
