Where does your community fall on the democracy/despotism scale shown on the video I embedded on our home page.
In January 2007, Federal Election Commission Chairman Michael Toner stated that the 2008 U.S. presidential race will be “the most expensive election in American history.”
Is this the way we really want to elect our leaders? Do we really need another politician who only knows how to spend money?
The answer of course is No!
You can go online at home or any local library and get all the information you need from the candidates web sites.
You can tell a lot about a candidate by the amount of information they put there.
Which leads me to Mr. Smith of Oregon, a candidate for the Republican Party nomination for the United States presidential election of 2008.

Take a look at his site and judge for yourself. Then go look at the other candidates and see how many issues they are willing to take a stand on.
Joe Biden may be following Kerry right off the candidate trail. I predict his Obama remarks will put an end to his bid for the presidency.
While shopping at Wal-Mart I found it difficult to find anything that was not made in China. It became apparent to me at that very moment that I was the only thing made in the USA.
I just finished watching and embedding a YouTube video by “uselessvideo.”
In it, he comments on the anger that is spewed out by a lot people who are intelligent but refuse to offer any productive and compromising solutions.
His words should be taken to heart. We need to stop hating one another and work together to find solutions that we can all live with.
Surprise! Hillary is running for president. Wow, I bet know body saw that coming. I personally do not think she can win.
In my opinion, Al Gore could win if he teamed up with Obama as his VP.
Gore has a lot of support from the Green community and others who supported him in his first bid and Obama has a large base as well. Obama’s experience is a problem for him that could be eliminated by taking the VP position.
I found this t-shirt design today and laughed, then I cringed.
What was so funny about the civil war in Iraq? Nothing, but I still liked the shirt. Why? I don’t really know.
I watched a video called “ACLU Pizza” that records the efforts of a man trying to order a pizza in today’s “information age”. It may be a little extreme, but it makes its point. The government and businesses these days do seemed to need and have more information than I would like.
I guess the the question is, what are we willing to do about it? Is it a problem that needs to be addressed?
Has anybody ever had an investigator to a search on themselves? If so, were you surprised at the amount of information they had?
AP writer Anne Flaherty reports “U.S. officials had no immediate plan to strike targets in Iran, but they also wouldn’t rule out military action.”
I personally think we will strike Iran in an attempt to stop their nuclear program and that it is the reason went to Iraq in the first place.
