2008
« on: January 21, 2007, 02:06:52 pm »
While 2008 is a long ways away, 2006 went by quick. Originally I had intended to put this in the political pig pen. This is a topic that deserves it's own slot. The reason I created this topic is so we can provide eachother with information about the candidates for 2008. Lets be prepared this election. Lets discuss who we want to win, who has the better ability to run the country, and why.

I personally think Hilary should, we need a good democrat to get in there to clean up that mess corrupt republicans (not saying ALL republiicans are bad) made. Shed be our first FEMALE prez which would be good.

Hillary is the absolute last person on my list. She pretends to be a moderate dem to pander to just about everybody but anybody watching back in Mr. Clinton's era knows she sits somewhere just left of Joseph Stalin politically.

I still think this should go in the political topic, but I don't really care...!

Here's a little list so you don't have to think too hard.

BARACK OBAMA: Honestly, I don't want him to run, let alone win. He may be charismatic, but he's not really experienced enough for me to trust him with the most powerful political position in the world.

BILL RICHARDSON: My favorite candidate! It's a long shot for him to win, but I think he'd be a great president. He's a very smart person.

HILLARY CLINTON: Ugh. I don't even know what to think. She's a really polarizing person and she's got a lot of baggage, but she's got enough reputation and backing from her husband to take it all the way. I'll just say that if she does make it and if I somehow turn 18 by 2008, I wouldn't vote for her.

JOHN EDWARDS: Another smart, smart, smartie. He'd be a good president too.

AL GORE: He probably won't run, but as long as he does run at some point in the future, the world will be saved.

TOM VILSACK: I don't think we're ready for the Vilsack Administration.

NEWT GINGRICH:

JOHN MCCAIN: He'd be a good president, because he wouldn't fill his cabinet with dumbasses. He might even have Al Gore as the Secretary of Energy...!

RUDY GIULIANI: Sure, whatever. Just as long as he doesn't take any breaks for baseball games.

MITT ROMNEY:

Also, Rhythm, you should really think harder before making decisions. It's jumping to conclusions that gets these rotten presidents in office. Also, about Hillary, A) Everyone is prone to corruption, even her. B) Just because she would be the first female president does not mean she would be a good president, which is what really counts. C) Just because she's a democrat does not mean she would be a good president, which is what really counts.

As far as the female ones go, I can't say I want Hillary any more than I'd want Condoleezza.

And a big "why hell no" goes out to Jeb Bush.

To be honest, I don't see anyone on that list that I'd be willing to back at this point.  I either don't know enough about certain ones, or they suck.

Let me put it this way: The last two elections were a choice between two rather bad cantidates. That's why they were so close. I doubt this one will be any different.

Bush won that one from being a war-time president.  Bush won the one before that for questionable reasons, and didn't even win the popular vote that time either way.

To be honest I'm love to see Kerry take another stab at it, I liked the guy, Gore would be good too, Cheyney better stay away from it, and Hillary.... well I don't think it would be terrible, but I doubt it would be good either.

I'll agree that Bush was a bad candidate in both elections, and that Kerry should have never run, but I personally thought Gore was a great pick, even back then in 2000.

Hillary, absolutley not. She's an enemy to us video gamers. Besides the point if she cant detect her husbands cheating on her, what makes her think she can run our country? Can you imagine the state of union adress full of uh's and um's?Besides I think she's extremley arrogant. Kerry flip flops on key issues, and I believe has voted no to funding our troops if i'm wrong feel free to correct me. Giuliani...No. He doesn't favor our right to bear arms. I still havent decided on who i'll vote for yet.
I'd rather go hunting with Dick Cheney, then go for a car ride with Ted Kennedy.Neuf sed.

I personally think Hilary should, we need a good democrat to get in there to clean up that mess corrupt republicans (not saying ALL republiicans are bad) made. Shed be our first FEMALE prez which would be good.

So, Buzzard was talking to me today and was all like, he, Jon, i need you to rape Rythm in a debate. Now.

So here I am.

Hilary is by far the worst choice ever.

Reasons?

She's a democrat. A radical one. She'll pull us out of Iraq. Most people don't realise how important an issue that is, but by faltering even in the slightest in Iraq, we open the flood gates to terrorists, and i really don't want to speak arabic. Nextly, high taxes. High high high taxes. Real high. You complain about our taxes now, well, imagine over 50% of your money going directly to the governement. Do you realise how much that is? Thats a fucking lot! I don't think any logical perso would want that. She's also a woman. Now, as sexist as that may be, women are highly emotional and highly prone to irrational behavior. Especially Hilary. Especially. What we need is someone in office with some testes, and a penis, because that is a serious flaw in the majority of our leaders today. they lack the balls to do anything in office for theirs or even our own good. She also supports abortion. I mean what the hell. That is first degree genocide against our countries most vulnerable human beings, and is by far her most stalinistic veiw. She also beleive global warming exists. HAH! Any nitwit with half a brain could tell you that the pattern of the earth is a natural fluctation of gradients of hot to cold that have been fluctuating on a set timescale for millions of years and won't change just because we drive our car a couple miles a day. She denies us the right to bear arms. that by far is any man's basic right. You should have the right ot bear arms to do whatever you need, whether it be to defend your country, rebel against an injust government, or protect your home.

In conclusion- A vote for Hilary is essentially a vote for a ball-less, but still having a penis, Stalin whom would bring about great destruction and social decay among people, especially young ones in our current culture.

So it seems your problem is more with women than Hilary specifically.... Well i don't think you really need to worry anyway, this country is still too old fashioned to vote a woman or minority into office.
