McCain swept Florida last night and pundits are already exclaiming he is just a hair away from being crowned the Republican nominee. My personal problem on McCain has been his stance on Iraq. However, I do think if we pulled out all together right now the country would collapse into total chaos. The problem with that is, the war is what created the environment for that collapse in the first place. So now we find ourselves in the catch 22, damned if you do, damned if you don’t scenario. This is a situation which America seems to have such a penchant for putting themselves in.

Clinton won the Democratic vote by a landslide, which I found a bit disappointing since I have tossed my hat in the ring for Obama. Clinton collected 50% of the votes on the democratic side while Obama reigned in only 33%. Edwards slumped in at 14% and rumors are abounding that he will announce the end of his campaign sometime this evening. That announcement is also a disappointment since he seemed to be one of the few front runners taking a hard line stance on the corrupt nature of the current administration. I guess people are still too brain dead to receive that message.

The good news is that Giuliani’s dumb-ass, to-hell-with-the-middle-strategy, finally blew up in his face. He will bow out tonight as well. I think the guy is nuts, and I am very glad to see him go.

It will be sadly ironic if our nation ends up with the two pro-war, career politicians, with ties to previous administrations that our dumbed-down media predicted we would end up with. If that isn’t an indicator of how screwed up we are in this country, I don’t know what is. It appears the old saying, “Voters get the government they deserve,” may ring true at election time. I am still holding a candle for Obama however and praying we can put a new face on our government.

I hope none of you are asking yourself, “I came here for design news, why should I care about this?” If you are asking yourself that, it’s time to pull your head out of your ass and see the light of day. Get involved and start to care right now. It matters. This is your country. If you are registered, get out there and make your voice heard here in Colorado next Tuesday and think very hard about the decision you make.

    If Obama would say anything meaningful and intelligent, I might actually still consider him. To bad he’s just another CFR sponsored puppet like the rest of the remaining field except for Ron Paul. And leaving Iraq is exactly what we should do! It’s a band-aid that needs to be ripped off and let the air heal it. All this talk about how bad it’s going to be if we leave is just propaganda to keep you stupid and confused, all the while jerk offs like our VP are cashing in on it. I’m not saying it won’t be messy but we can NOT financially afford to turn Iraq into another Korea or Germany or Bosnia. Our entire foreign policy needs an overhaul, no more military intervention without direct eminent threat to our nation. We are not the World Police. We are financially broke, we can’t support our military commitments without borrowing billions and billions of dollars from other countries. Obama would just keep up the status quo of “Hi we are America and get to tell everyone what to do, and somehow we will be able to pay for it all, oh I know!!! I will raise taxes and that should cover it.” – Retards!!! He sounds no different that anyone else that is winning these primaries. It’s a total bought and paid for shame the whole freaking lot of it, and until US citizens are desperate enough to start taking to these bastards front steps with baseball bats and megaphones their ain’t shit that will be done. The dollar is crashing, gold’s value is rapidly rising – that means my dogs early morning loafs are hitting the fan. The fed dropped the interest another half a percent today and the Dow still lost 40 points! I honestly can’t believe people won’t wake up.

    Wow man. Bringin’ the smack down. I love it. I love it. Don’t get me wrong man. I totally think we have to get the hell out of Iraq. I just think it’s a shame that we are in a situation now that when we do leave it’s going to mean hell for the innocent people over there that aren’t wealthy enough to up and leave.

    I agree about Obama too, I don’t think he is saying much of anything other than his repetitive ‘Hope and Progress’ pitch. The sad situation again though, is that he is the lesser of all the evils. I just don’t want Clinton in the Whitehouse. I can’t even fully explain why, I just don’t want her there. I get this vibe that she wants to be there because she sees it as the end all be all career move for herself as a woman politician. What worries me about that is that it seems like her end goal is more about the goal in and of itself and not about what she wants to do by accomplishing that goal. Getting elected is only the beginning. I just think Obama, might actually DO something if he gets elected.

    Yeah, it’s a shit all situation all over again, but we gotta pick someone. If and when you want to storm those gates though, I’ll shout through the megaphone if you promise to swing the bat.
