This from Bud, over at Bud's Misty Mountain Top (link on right).
I couldn't have said it any better Bud, thanks!
Already we get only two choices, both made possible by Big Money. Reminds me of something I learned in Psychology class, how asking the right question can be critical to producing the desired answer.
Example: a young man is trying to convince young lady to spend the night. He won't do as well asking "I'd like for you to spend the night with me -- will you?" as he will asking "If you spend the night, I can give you a toothbrush -- which would you prefer, blue or red?".
I usually feel like I'm choosing a toothbrush instead of a President. >
I'm writing to ask you to take part in MoveOn.org's
presidential primary. Too often, the real choices in
presidential nomination processes are made long before
the real primaries. Pundits, pollsters and big donors
shouldn't be the only voices that count at this early
and important stage of the process.
MoveOn's primary will give at least 1.4 million people
the opportunity to make their voices heard. You can be
one of them by registering to vote in the MoveOn Primary
I've noticed a lot of talk about Iran
in the news lately. I wonder if we are seeing the beginnings of a setup for another war, created exclusively to co-inside with the upcoming Presidential election? After all if Bush and the rich ole boys club have got to find somthing to keep American's focus OFF
the economy. Nothing like a war with Iran (or Syria, or if all else fails maybe even Canada) to do the deed. How can so many Americans be so blind?
On another note, while the "major combat" maybe over in Iraq, American servicemen are still dying
on what seems like a daily basis.
One of my greatest fears is that instead of being worried about the fascist regime in Iraq,
maybe we should be more concerned about the fascist regime currently running The United States. There is an ever growing atmosphere in this country to make it politically incorrect to disagree with the current admistration. Anything even remotely non-republican or non-Bush has become synonymous with being un-American/un-patriotic. How long before we don't need to even bother with elections? How long before the media (by way of the rich ole boys club, who's members incidently OWN the media) decide who should be President and then tells Americans, this is how it should be, and so it is? How long?
