Why I Can’t Support Romney or Democrat Congressional Reps

Not too long ago, I wrote a post about my dystopia-like feeling  of the next election and hinting that I had no idea who or what I would support but it is becoming clear now.   For starters, I couldn’t support McCain in the GOP in 2008 because Bush turned out to be a miserable failure […]

I Am Dumfounded About This Election

I simply can’t decide who to vote for this year for president.   On the one hand, Obama has been a HUGE disappointment and I leaned toward supporting “hope and change” but am disgusted at where it’s gone these past four years.   Additionally, Obama has been as big an economic failure as that turd Bush who […]
