"Thanks you old coots!"

wELL this OLD coot did note and has in every election since Ike. And in my Parties and elections class, the statistics for VTO (voter turn out) during a presidential election was 52%. And that data was only four years ago. In VTO, The United States is trailed only be Switzerland. So you other 48% get off your butts and until you do, don't bitch.

Exactly, both parties are tone deaf in their neat DC towers. OTOH neither candidate is a product of a vacuum. That is, the electorate chose them! We’re most of the problem really. Until voters wake up and take the time to become informed nothing will change.

By the way, I am not a Republocant, so you have to talk to those “punks” that nominate RINO’s and other psuedo conservatives.

I agree 100%. Simply making a silly statement and everyone gets all riled up. I have to be more careful to ensure that people know when I write something in jest.

Throw a silver dollar
down on the ground
and it rolls
because it’s round

The only thing worse
than a man without a woman
is a woman
without a man

Amazing how much wisdom is in some of those old songs, ain’t it?

Sometimes people get sick and tired of being sick and tired! People told themselves that they are all crooks and they gave up thinking it would not matter which head of the two headed monster was in power.

But, if nothing else, Obama’s Death plan for the eldery ought to get them out of their funk. Them not voting against the socialists, could make things a lot worse.

Wasn’t being “testy” unless you consider saying get up off your butts and vote. Then, I don’t even know if that applies to you as I don’t know if you;re one of the 48% that doesn’t vote. And I don’t know if it does come with old age. I’ll let you know when I get there. I haven’t even reached 80 yet. But stay tuned.

They stayed home in 2006 too. Maybe they should just join the Democratic party. Most get a goverment check anyway. I doubt if they are going to vote against any cutbacks there anyway.

Rex, you certainly are correct. This Obama administration is in the process of destroying the country we knew and it is not the fault of Republicans Those who did not do all they could to stop it might be responsible but those who voted Republican are not responsible. See my tagline.
