Politics

I am not very happy with our presidential prospects. I'll tell you why...

RINO's (Republicans In Name Only) like McCain, and Democrats are happy to impose taxes that are 10 times harder to get rid of than they are to vote into law. They'll always tell you that they are going to "tax the rich", which is laughable to anyone who took Econ 1010 and learned about "Tax Incidence".

Liberals are always happy to take away our freedoms - particularly the 1st and 2nd amendments - all in the name of "protecting the children" (unless of course they aren't born yet, in which case they are merely a fetus). They don't want us to say anything "hateful", unless it's about President Bush, white people, or conservatives. We have speech codes on college campuses and don't you DARE use a racial slur against anyone who isn't white, male, and/or of Christian faith! Oh, and guns? For some reason, liberals have an irrational fear of weapons, and believe that violence in America is caused by weapons, not criminals.

"There are no dangerous weapons; there are only dangerous men."- Robert Heinlein

People in my office know that I own firearms and often go shooting and hunting. Every once in a while some smart ass will jokingly say, "So, are you going to come in to work and shoot up the place someday? Hee hee!"

One time, when said smart ass asked me that question, I replied, "Chad, don't worry about getting shot, when I decide to kill you, I'm going to use my bare hands". What the Hell is WRONG with these people!!! When he showed up to work on his first day at my office in a beat up Honda Civic with a 2 foot high spoiler on the back, I didn't ask him, "So Chad, when are you going to freak out and plow your car through an elementary school playground during recess?"

That's a great way to sum up liberals. I am very worried about the upcoming elections.

People should know that I ALWAYS make sure you aren't taking any weapons to work! :) *wink wink*

Maybe the people at your office are worried because you give off psycho vibes...and would worry whether you had firearms or a wooden spoon collection.

I'm also concerned about our choices and your post really sums up all the feelings I have.

I'm pretty sure that Hillary is like, the third horseman of the Apocalypse and if she's voted into office, that's pretty much the end. But the other candidates aren't much better. Our government is so sickly wrong... we can't pay teachers but we'll force money down the throat of a dysfunctional welfare system. We'll take guns away from law-abiding citizens while making it possible for a murderer to escape jail time because someone mis-spelled his name on a warrant. Seriously people! Can we just take a step back and look at things rationally?

The elections this year scare the &*$^# out of me. I don't know who to vote for. I totally agree with all you said.
