    Me for one and I know of lots of others on the RCM news group.
    There is no chance of getting a "good" canditate to run any longer
    so all that is left is the old "lesser of the evils" . :-(

      Without turning this into a political argument, I agree 100%. No matter which side of the isle your candidate may sit, the choices this election will be slim to none. I'm not a party ticket voter so neither side seems to value my opinion. Just as well. I don't miss all the polling calls others get so often.

        I follow the state of the nation real close and I like anyone who will stop the war in Iraq. We just cant fork out $165,000,000,000.00 every 6 months and piss it away in Iraq.

        Bring home our troops and let them work on the mexican border. At least they can BBQ have a cold one and play with thier kids and love on thier wives. God bless them to have the balls for going to ****hole Iraq.

            Sure we can, and have done it, Bush proved it.

            I also agree there is no suitable candidates.

              Subject:Lee Iacocca >> right to the point!


              This man has a whole lot to say. He is right on point!!



              Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation
              from it's death throes? He's now 82 years old and has a new book (Where Have All
              The Leaders Gone), and here are some excerpts.

              Lee Iacocca Says:

              "Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's

              happening?
              Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder.
              We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right
              over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we
              can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car.
              But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads
              when the politicians say, "Stay the course" .

              Stay the course? You've got to be kidding. This is America , not the
              damned "Titanic". I'll give you a sound bite: "Throw all the bums out!"

              You might think I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and
              maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this
              country anymore.

              The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the

              guys in handcuffs. While we're fiddling in Iraq , the Middle East is burning
              and nobody seems to know what to do. And the press is waving 'pom -poms' instead of asking hard quest ions.

              That's not the promise of the " America " my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for.
              I've had enough. How about you?

              I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're
              not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have.
              The Biggest "C" is Crisis ! (Iacocca elaborates on nine Cs of leadership, crisis being the first.)

              Leadership is forged in times of crisis. Leaders are made, not born.
              It's easy to sit there with your feet up on the desk and talk theory.
              Or send someone else's kids off to war when you've never seen a
              battlefield yourself. It's another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down.

              On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history.

              We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes.

              A Hell of a Mess So here's where we stand.

              We're immersed in a bloody war with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving.

              We're running the biggest deficit in the history of the country.

              We're losing the manufacturing edge to Asia , while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs.

              Gas prices are skyrocketing, and nobody in power has a coherent energy policy.

              Our schools are in trouble.

              Our borders are like sieves.

              The middle class is being squeezed every which way These are times that cry out

              for leadership.

              But when you look around, you've got to ask:" Where have all the leaders gone?"

              Where are the curious, creative communicators?

              Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense?
              I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point.

              Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our

              shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?

              We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.

              Name me one leader who emerged from the crisis of Hurricane Katrina.


              Congress has yet to spend a single day evaluating the response to the hurricane, or demanding

              accountability for the decisions that were made in the crucial hours after the storm.

              Everyone's hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping it doesn't happen again.

              Now, that's just crazy. Storms happen. Deal with it. Make a plan. Figure out

              what you're going to do the next time.

              Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about

              how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed

              that there could ever be a time when "The Big Three" referred to Japanese car companies?

              How did this happen, and more important, what are we going to do about it?

              Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the

              debit, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The

              silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our

              country and milking the middle class dry.

              I have news for the gang in Congress.

              We didn't elect you to sit on your asses and do nothing and remain silent

              while our democracy is being hijacked and our greatness is being replaced with mediocrity.

              What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on Fox News will call

              them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a change?

              Had Enough?

              Hey, I'm not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I'm trying to light a fire.

              I'm speaking out because I have hope I believe in America. In my lifetime

              I've had the privilege of living through some of America's greatest moments.

              I've also experienced some of our worst crises: the "Great Depression",

              "World War II", the "Korean War", the "Kennedy Assassination", the "Vietnam War",

              the 1970s oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years culminating with 9/11.

              If I've learned one thing, it's this:
              "You don't get anywhere by standing on the sidelines waiting for somebody else to take action.

              Whether it's building a better car or building a better future for our children, we all have a role to play.

              That's the challenge I'm raising in this book.

              It's a call to "Action" for people who, like me, believe in America .

              It's not too late, but it's getting pretty close. So let's shake off the crap and go to work.

              Let's tell 'me all we've had "enough."

              Make your own contribution by sending this to everyone you know and care about.

              It's our country, folks; and it's our future. Our future is at stake!
              If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything!

                          "None of the above" would be a great option. If "none of the above" were to "win" then all candidates get thrown out and a new election should be run.

                          It looks like we will have a choice between a socialist RINO and a socialist Democrat. What kind of choice is that? I guess who wins doesn't matter as the only thing we'll get is bigger government.

                          As far as the Iraq war is concerned: We really don't know if Obama will pull the troops out or not. These morons tend to "change their mind" after the election is over. What is the latest excuse for us being there? I lost track. The last I knew is that we were there to "spread Democracy." Which is a very interesting concept given that our country is supposed to be a Republic.

                              I don't mean to disagree; but, I will.

                              H. Ross Perot did have a plan that involved balancing the budget, reducing or eliminating entitlements, and was against NAFTA. There are probably some more points to be made; but, I am going from memory.

                              When I moved, almost 2 years ago, I stumbled across his book, "Not For Sale At Any Price." I found it very interesting that many of his predictions, if the situation was not corrected at that time, are either coming true or have came true.

                              Oh, yeah, I am not ashamed to say that I was one of the 20%, or so, of the population that voted for him.
