Sorry, old fella, I keep teling people, it'll be Jeb in 2016. They already laid the groundwork to keep Hillary out. Benghazi. That'll be the wild card that they use to "say" that we didn't want her (not that I do, I need a patriot) and to "fix" (this means use the Electoral College to 'adjust' the vote in favor of the pre-approved Jeb) the results and "PRESTO!" whaddya know? They'll tell us that we wanted Jeb!
Maybe Big D will run. He's a patriot. We're not. According to him.

Long version..
"Run Through the Jungle"

"The song was written by Creedence's lead singer, guitarist and songwriter, John Fogerty. It was included on their 1970 album Cosmo's Factory, the group's fifth album. The song's title and lyrics, as well as the year it was released (1970), have led many to assume that the song is about the Vietnam War. The fact that previous Creedence Clearwater Revival songs such as "Fortunate Son" were protests of the Vietnam War added to this belief. However, according to the song's composer, that's not really the case. Fogerty, in a 1993 interview with the Los Angeles Times, said,

"I think a lot of people thought that because of the times, but I was talking about America and the proliferation of guns, registered and otherwise. I'm a hunter and I'm not antigun, but I just thought that people were so gun-happy -- and there were so many guns uncontrolled that it really was dangerous, and it's even worse now. It's interesting that it has taken 20-odd years to get a movement on that position."

You know it will be Hilary. She'll get in unless the Republicans can find an actual human being to nominate. That'll give ol' Bill another crack at staining a dress in the Oral Office.
Buddy, you don't seriously believe that they're gonna let someone in, who'll want to fix what's wrong, do you? Look at Perot. Look at Ron Paul. How close did either of them get?

Did I say that twinkletoes? I believe gay marriage should be allowed. I also believe you go "gimme gimme gimme" too much. And have a big chip on your fat shoulder.
How else is someone supposed to interpret the comment, "They're all "gimme gimme gimme". Gimme gay marriage. Gimme HIV cure. Gimme Obama plan. Gimme Obama care. Gimme gimme."?

"Gimme gay marriage..." "Gimme HIV cure..."

Tsk...

Within these lyrics:
"Some folks are born to wave the flag,
Ooh, they're red, white and blue.
And when the band plays "Hail to the chief",
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, Lord,

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senator's son, son.
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no,
Yeah!

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
Lord, don't they help themselves, oh.
But when the taxman comes to the door,
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes,

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no millionaire's son, no.
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no.

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes,
Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord,
And when you ask them, "How much should we give?"
Ooh, they only answer More! more! more! yoh,

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no military son, son.
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, one.
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no no no,
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate son, no no no"

I see no mention of guns. Sorry. I do, however, see mention made of privileged families. I see references to some telling others about the prices that unfortunate are allowed to pay, in order to support the priviliged few. Sorry again. I don't care what they have quoted him as saying.

That's EXACTLY right!
they've turned America inot nothing short of a grab-bag.
A treasure-trove, a personal "freebie"... The "it's-all-about-me" crowd, forgetting what we are all supposed to be about, which is to benfit us ALL, not just "What-can-I-have-next? "..
Would you also include the defense department, which siphons off over $500 billion dollars each year? And we know that the majority of this spending is for corporations saying "it's all about me" and "what can I have next".

We spend more on defense than (something like) the next 15 closest spenders combined.

The Iraq war has cost over $1.4 Trillion. And exactly what did it do? It is less stable and more of a training ground for al Qaeda than ever before.

W. Bush was pissed at Saddam because he threatened to kill his daddy, H. W. Bush. He used the events of 9/11 to whip the world into a frenzy and go after Hussein. There's no doubt that Saddam Hussein was a bastard. But he was never a threat to us. The Bush Whitehouse lied about there being WMDs.

At least if Obama spends money on social programs REAL Americans can benefit.

The lyrics you quoted are from a CCR song entitled, "Fortunate Son".

Absolutely. But to destroy our economy is not the answer. And Obammy is destroying our economy. He has allowed G Soros to come here, with a view to destroyinh us.

We need a real leader. Hillary ain't it. Obama ain't it.
Ol' Jebthro ain't it either. My dad use to say (he might have ripped it off) "the only thing that should disqualify someone from elected office is the desire to be elected." I agree. WE figured it ought to be done by lottery. You lose? Too bad, you're in charge now.

OTOH I could fix it with a few simple rules.

Job one, nuke K street & outlaw lobbying. Salaries for elected officials are just enough to provide room and board. That way they've got to get back in the real world once their term is over.

No campaign money raising. No negative ads. That would cut corporate influence off at the tap. All candidates compete in debate format. The fee for an FCC license includes providing air time for debates. If one of 'em utters a negative word about another a gert big ol wrassler runs out and squeezes 'em till their nuts or breasts rupture. Just a good ol' debate telling us what they'll do, not what is wrong with the other guy. Then we go to the polls and vote.

Two term limit on all elected offices at the federal level. If you make it to a second term a special "election" occurs at the end of your second term. If you "lose" that one you get drawn and quartered.
