...and the winner is?!?!Posted Friday, February 1, 2008, at 1:30 PM
Well, I don't know who the winner is yet, but I've almost reached the conclusion that I'm not going to be happy no matter who wins. I know we have a few big names in this year's race, but all in all I'm simply not impressed.
Right now my gut feeling tells me that we're looking at choosing between Hillary and McCain in Nov.. Not much of a choice in my opinion.
I'm not even going to talk about Hillary because I've made my opinion on that one pretty clear already. McCain's another story though.
It's beyond me that he's still running as a Republican. In my personal opinion, the only Republican stance he has taken is his stance on the war.
Other than that, if he gets the nomination he will be, by far, the most liberal Republican nominee in history.
The only reason he's campaigning as a Republican is because he simply can't get elected as an Independent or Libertarian in this country. Frankly, that's a shame.
That third party candidate can bring an interesting insight into the true happenings of government. A candidate with nothing to lose. The fact is that people just don't pay attention to them.
Don't get me wrong, there have been plenty of whack jobs run for office as Independents but they shouldn't simply be discounted because they are not Democrats or Republicans.
Chances are more of you fit that category than you think. Try this test and find out your true political identity. This is just for fun, but it's actually more accurate than you might think. I'm sure there are others out there, but this was the one that was linked from radio host Neal Boortzs' website.
I will post a new blog either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning so we can chat about the results. Once again, I apologize for the long hiatus from the blogosphere here, but it's been a busy January to say the least.
