It's just a few weeks before the Election. Some say our choices are a continuation of the Washington Club at Taxpayer's expense and business as usual while we struggle for survival, pitted against each other (meaning absolutely nothing is going to change and we are going further down the proverbial toilet as a Nation, a culture and a Dream). OR there is the hope to right the wrongs of decades long status quo with the opportunity to salvage this PC damaged USA.

On the one hand, we have a Presidential Candidate who's political exposure and experience has allowed her to sit at the very top as she dealt with International Dignitaries.

Oddly, when this race began President Obama mocked the GOP Candidates saying it reminded him of that movie trilogy about an oppressed people pitted against each other while the elitists kept the masses divided for survival called, "The Hunger Games." Our current President may have forgotten that in the end the dictatorship in The Capitol is overthrown. (hrg)

The GOP elite are running scared because they were defeated by someone with common sense and business know-how. It's not fair, they say, as they act all sanctimonious and try to regain their power. I, for one, will never vote... More ›
