Thread Name: american politics is a joke
Subject: RE: american politics is a joke
Oh boy, this is fun. I generally take the speeches of our great leaders with a large grain of salt because they generally come across like small boys fighting over toys. Now here is something worth paying attention to.

We need to keep in mind that the largest proportion of the mail in votes will be from members of the armed forces and it has been my experience that they are overwhelmingly Republican. I have spent the last 20 years wrapped in the security of a Republican enclave and take every opportunity to spout liberalisms and shake their faith in the uniformity of mankind.

Consider that Bush WILL get the presidency. He will have a Republican House and 50 votes in the Senate. In case of a tie the Vice President casts the deciding vote. Therefore the Republicans will have the Congress sewed up.

Bush HAS to live up to his campaign promises and he has to do it in the first two years if the Republicans are going to keep control of the Congress. He cannot point to the Democrats as the road block to fulfilling his promises. What will we see coming out of Washington over the next two years? It's anyone's guess.

We HAVE to keep a close eye on what they are doing in Washington and fire off heated letters to our representatives to make sure they understand what our will is. Keep your word processors on stand by.
