Thread Name: BS: Election of the US President
Subject: RE: BS: Election of the US President
Bobert, as a kid whose father was a union worker & growing up in a blue collar, lower middle class area - I learned the truth in that old adage, united we stand, divided we fall.
Why do you think the Republicans keep selling out to the Conservatives? It's a numbers game. And it's what is keeping them viable in the House.
In 1980, I opposed Reagan... but also was pretty sure that my state would go with Carter, so I cast my vote for Anderson - hoping to ensure that federal $ would go to the Independent campaign.
We need a Supreme Court that will support the rights of all Americans and understand that multi national corporations are neither citizens nor voters.... that "personhood" is a fiction for tax purposes alone... and not a justification for letting big money bully the real citizens of this nation. There may well have been a good candidate in the Republican Party who would work for the good of all... but that person never had a chance to even be considered for the chance to run thanks to the insane primaries. We can only hope that they are just biding their time in wait for a more rational party to emerge.
