I voted for Bush because the guy who impersonates him on Saturday Night Live does a better job than the guy who plays Gore. I would rather watch 4 years of the Bush guy.
In my opinion, the President is nothing more than a GUI for the party he is affiliated with. He is basically a ventrilliquists (spelling?) dummy with more than one hand up his ass (his so called "advisors").
This country is no longer "by the people, for the people." We are now subjects of the government. This happend the moment government officals (probably military) decided to with-hold information for the "saftey" of the country. In other words, we the public, are to stupid to think for oursleves, therefore the government will decide whats best for us and not the other way around.
Do you realize that one of the main reasons our forefathers broke away from England was the taxes they were forced to pay. I do not have the figures on it, but relativly speaking, we are paying a LOT more than they were in taxes.
My state (Nevada) tells me that it is a privlege for me to drive, not a right. They force me to pay almost $.50/gallon tax on gas, plus everyother tax we pay that goes towards the buliding/maintenance of our roads and tell me it is my privlege that they let me drive? Uh-hm...I think I have paid enough for that god-damn road to allow me the RIGHT to drive on it.
Sorry for the rants but I am on a role now...
In my state, out driving policy is based on a point system, a speeding ticket is woth 2 points, running a red light is four, etc. If you get 16 points in a one year period, you will have your license suspended. This is a good system. But the police also have to power to ticket you. They can basically take your money when ever they feel like it. I have been pulled over three times during my life, and everytime I got a ticket. The very first time I got a ticket, I was doing 78mph on a 65mph freeway at 2:30 in the morning. This is the FIRST time I had ever been pulled over and the cop writes me a $60 ticket. I know of two women who have been pulled over, one doing 55 in a 45 and another doing 45 in a 25 and who also ran a stop sign, neither one got a ticket. I do not like the fact that police have the power to take MY money based on how they feel at the time. They point system is great and I think it really detures unsafe behavior, but I think I pay enough money to my local government to not worry about them taking anymore. Oh, yeah and do you know what that money from those tickets buys? Cars like Ford Expeditions and Camaros. An expedition starts at $30,000 and lord knows how much after they put all their cop crap on it. Plus its an enormous SUV that gets really crappy gas mileage. Is this nessecary?
Ok, I've blabbed enough
