It is really frustrating… Being a capitalist I really support the conservative ideals, although the Republican party that I see wants bigger government and more and more control (patriot act, and evengelical political leaders, other things that disturb me). They are also hypocrites, going after Clinton on a witch hunt like they did, then stonewalling access to all of Bush’s history (meeting minutes from his companies, his records as governor, etc… what should he have to hide?). They criticized the president as adamently as I have ever seen it done, as is our constitutional right, but then try to ostrocize anyone who questions the current president or his motives.
Democrats are generally self righteous and, frankly, just as corrupt as the republicans. They have their own agenda, and it usually ends up slapping on a few dozen extra fees and taxes on my already worn out, taxed out self.
I know you guys in here have pretty strident opinions either way, and my stance doesn’t really put me in good standing with either group. I am used to that, and I really don’t care. Honestly some days I am THIS close to actually running for an office of some sort (at the state level), because I have this quirk in my personality that wants to fix these problems. Trouble is, I don’t know which ticket I would pick. The robber barons or the taxaholics? No third party ever really has a solid chance of getting elected.
Just thinking out loud.
