    Well how about France, then? It'd be a pretty nice place after he evicted
    all those French people! Or maybe Switzerland? Mmmm...chocolate! How about
    Mexico? I bet he could pick up Mexico cheap! Then I could have a big
    ranchero. On the beach. Like Cancun!

    He's in the race solely for amusement purposes.

    That sounds like a sweet deal.

    For myself, I'm going to buy Real Estate with No Money Down.

    It's working. Anyone else see him on Bill Maher's show the other night? He
    is amusing.

    Amusing yes. But also scary. You know he would get at least 25-30% of
    the vote if he were somehow nominated. That he is taken seriously at all
    disturbs me. I guess they do it for ratings.

    Your numbers are misleading, somewhat. If I was the Democratic nominee, I'd
    get 25-30% of the vote, too. Hell, I think Hitler would get that much. Many
    people are loathe to vote across political parties, and will avoid doing so
    at all costs, even if it means giving Hitler 4 years in office. People in
    this country (I can't speak for others) seem to break down into just a few
    categories:
    Hardcore Republicans (vote only Republican, would never think of voting any
    other way)
    Hardore Democrats (self-explanatory)
    The Rest (includes Green Party, Independents, and everyone else who may be
    either a Democrat or a Republican, but is at least willing to consider
    ideas stemming from the "other" party)

    If Sharpton was somehow nominated as the Democratic candidate for
    President, the Hardcore Democrats would surely vote for him. They'd vote
    for Hitler too.

    Your numbers are misleading, somewhat. If I was the Democratic nominee,
    I'd
    Point well taken. I vote along party lines (at the national level) but
    I would like to think that if my party put up an unacceptable candidate
    that I would vote for the best man (or woman). I don't see this kind of
    common sense coming from the other side though. I know why its not
    done but I think you should have to pass a civics/economics/history test to
    vote. Won't happen. Home of the Free. Free to be stupid and ignorant.
    What a great country (for now, until it completes the inevitable march
    toward socialism).

    I hate talking politics. It depresses me.

    Don't you turn your back on me. Get back here.
    See, it's one thing to vote along party lines, but it's another to vote
    *only* along party lines. Usually, a candidate from "your" party seems (to
    you) to be the best man/woman for the job. But it's just the nature of the
    game that he/she turns out to sometimes *not* be the best candidate, and
    someone from another party may have done a better job in office.
    Exactly what causes the difference in political parties. They all think the
    others are stupid. Would rather talk to a brick wall than the "enemy".
    Agreed. There should be (un-dumpable) tests for voting, parenthood, and any
    other potentially-major decision one has to make in life. This will
    guarantee that the ignorant remain both oblivious and non-breeding. Only
    the conscious, intelligent community will be afforded any rights.
    (Jesus, I sound pretty Orwellian. Or worse, Republican...)
    We're getting there, unfortunately. "Patriot Act", my ass. Prison Act, is
    more like it.
    Me too. Now you can turn your back and walk away.

    OK.

    I have a theory as to how the left and right see the world. I will try to
    articulate it.

    The left believes the right is either stupid or greedy. Stupid because they
    don't realize that people are helpless and need someone to guide
    them in their daily lives ...or... Greedy because they do see that people
    are helpless and they take advantage of them.

    The right believes the left is either stupid or greedy. Stupid because they
    don't realize that people are capable of taking care of themselves ...or...
    Greedy because they do see that people can take care of themselves
    but intentionally keep them dependant to acquire power over them.

    Somewhere in the middle is the truth. In the good ole USA we manage
    to keep a good mix of both, but the balancing act can be upset easily if we
    aren't careful.

    Why can't everyone just see things my way?

    Actually, it's Bily Gates KBE (Knight Commander of the most excellent
    Order of the British Empire) - don't get the title "Sir" unless you're
    a British citizen/subject.
