This Coming Tuesday.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:22 pm

I worked late. I’m tired. I’m wired. And, I’m more than a little torqued off with the political landscape.

I’ve decided what I will do on Tuesday. I figure there ought to be at least one candidate in November who believes in capitalism and the proper role of the federal government. I hope that of the dozen republicans in this state at least seven of them feel the same way.

Socialism is simply not my bag.


  1. I think that pretty much covers it.

  2. I think my crystal ball was on the fritz or maybe tuned to the rational universe instead on the one in which we find ourselves trapped. I’ll probably just throw the damn thing out Tuesday night.

  3. Don’t forget to wear your secret underwear.

  4. I doubt he does very well around my neck of the woods. See e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain_Meadows_massacre.

    And yeah, I know that was a long time ago. But there’s still many relatives of those folks living here.

    Besides there’s that whole magic underwear thing.

  5. That is who I have also settled on and just yesterday as well [no need to think long and hard about it]. Realistically, though, I just don’t see Romney beating Hillary or Obama, and that scares the pants off of me.

    “Change,” to Democrats, must mean change the ideals of how this country was founded…we’re winning the War in Iraq, the Surge is working…oh, let’s CHANGE that…just to spite the incumbent in office.

    It’s total partisan arrogance.

  6. Erica, well put.
    I’ve never settled for a candidate in thirty four years of voting, but I guess there’s a first time for everything. I don’t have high hopes of whomever is nominated for the party beating the specter of Obama/Clinton, but I plan on doing my little part on the 5th to help try. If Mitt doesn’t get the nomination, I’ll have to give serious thought about going underground for at least the next four years, as McCain scares me as much as those two do, maybe even more. Hell of a thing, isn’t it? It’s bad enough to have to worry about enemies from outside our country, let alone worry about those within.

  7. Oh … the Mormon thing….

    I’m much more frightened by the Stalinist thing.

  8. Ann Coulter has said she’d vote for Hillary over McCain, seeing him as the lesser of the two evils.

  9. Hillary for hag of the year……

    President! Not in 10 lifetimes, fear not as at least half of the voters in this country absolutely detest this Socialist Hag so much there is not any chance of them ever voting for her. Obama ….like it or not he is the coming superstar of the democratic party but not this time.

    Back to Hildabeast….I do not think there is a voter who has not already decided as to Hillary , there is no middle of the road undecided voters when it comes to her & that is what actually elects a new President as those who are committed will not change their minds.I see 52% to 48% for whoever the Republican Nominee is ….more if some liberal wingnut mounts a third party bid.

    Having said this …the unfortunate reality is John Mc Cain will in all reality be the Republican nominee……I detest this liberal asshat too, just not as much as Hillary. so I will hold my nose & wear dark glasses when I approach the voting booth & furtively vote for the asshat hoping no one recognizes me.

    I would much preferred Fred Thompson but he was the reluctant warrior & only Mitt Romney is left . Were he to win then I would vote for him but I am resigned to McAsshat.

  10. Romney is my choice of last resort, and as a NJ Republican…I know last resort, well.

    I will never vote for McCain.

  11. no way to feel good about any of this. i like romney. looking at mccain i think, crap, even if we win, he doesn’t represent anything i care about.

    i’m with coulter. if mccain is the nominee, i don’t think there’s any reason to cast a vote. i don’t want the republican party taking any black eyes for his visionless non conservative rhetoric. it’d be quicker and less painful to just go to the courthouse and deed everything over to Mexico now. I HATE MCCAIN.

  12. If only Romney weren’t so evil.

  13. I think the real vote this year is for Vice-President. And hope that the Prez resigns in disgrace or dies in office.
