And McCain has voted with Bush over 90% of the time.Mary Landrieu has voted 80% of the time with Obama.
Mary Landrieu has endorsed Obama and given him
a fundraising party which she later took her name off of.
IF Obama wins, Mary Landrieu will be right there rubber stamping Obama's socialist agenda.
So Obama, McCain and Landrieu have all towed their party lines. Do you really expect anything other than that from either party?
Both parties have gotten us into the present mess in which we find ourselves. It's time to send a clear message that we, the people, know the partisan schemes and lines are not what is in the best interest of the people; they never have been. Both parties will send us right down the gutter with no real action taken that is in the people's best interest at all. But at least the Repubs did hold out on the bailout bill for awhile, for whatever that's worth now.
Neither Obama, nor McCain can bridge the gap and bring unity to the parties, and thus to the people, when they've both blatantly shown themselves to be so divisionary and willing to tow the party line, no matter the cost to the people, the country, the economy, or anything else.
Personally, I'd prefer a president with the audacity and confidence to dissent from the popular party opinions which, more often than not, simply boil down to extreme positions with no compromise to come to a general, common sense consensus within congress.
We need a president who can direct congress into compromising, to come to sensable agreements rather than sticking to polarizing positions, and to think outside the box, about alternatives to those extreme positions held by the party lines. Neither of the two major candidates are viable options for this position.
They, and both parties, have both been paid for, and bought, by big money lobbyists to the point that they want to portray to the people that we only have one of two choices, when there are actually other, better choices of leaders for this nation.
I will be writing-in Ron Paul's name and totally dissenting from the propagandized present choice of the lesser of two evils.
It may be futile; but one day, hopefully more Americans will realize that these two parties are willfully injecting extremist ideologies in order to sow discontent and division in the American public....for their own good, not ours.
