I have been trying to not post political articles, I really have. I have grown to really hate politics over the last few years. It is not because I do not enjoy the discussion of politics, but because there has been no “side” to take recently.
I look that the people that call themselves candidates for the GOP, and the only thing that I really have to ask is, “Is this the best our money is buying?” I mean, you listen to these jokers talking and “debating”, and you start to get the feeling that the GOP is purposely throwing their chances in the race. That they are not really serious about TRYING to win.
I have not seen what the Democrats have to offer yet, and frankly, I am not looking forward to it. Because with what the GOP is offering this go around, I am pretty sure that the only way the Dems will lose is if they go out and nominate Courtney Love, and even in that case, I think she would have a fighting chance, from what I have seen.
Maybe I am just naive or jaded. I still think that the person who runs for the office should be motivated to be there by something other than popularity or money. They should be there for the sole purpose of making the nation better. Too often, especially during Obama’s run, I hear people talk about how he has his “Legacy” to think about.
I think that if a person goes into any undertaking thinking about their legacy first, then they are not worried about anything other than looking good to begin with. They are not interested in taking chances on unpopular decisions. They are not willing to go out on a limb to piss people off, even their own people in their own party.
Maybe I will end up being wrong. Maybe this will end up being a great year for politics, but about the only way I see that happening now is if there is a miracle and we have a powerful figure step up as a “Third Party Candidate”. If the third party ever had a chance, it is going to be this time around.
We shall see.
As always, thanks for reading.
