You shouldn't be allowed to vote according to the Republican party.

I'm sure this is a coincidence:
McCain’s regional headquarters are housed in the office building of foreclosure specialists Trott & Trott. The firm’s founder, David A. Trott, has raised between $100,000 and $250,000 for the Republican nominee.

*sigh*

Every time I think our political process has gotten as low and nasty as it can get, it manages to go even lower.

Steen – The Republicans fear the tyranny of mob rule, hence, they view suffrage as something that only "qualified" citizens should enjoy. Now, what quantifies a "qualified" citizen seems to change depending on the political winds. On the other hand, Democrats are all for the rule by all, though they too go along with some limitations, such as age, residency, etc.

Of course, Republicans are all for "do as I say, not as I do" as it seems to work so well for them.

According to my mother her great-grandfather (or was it her grandfather?) was an IL State Senator. After just a few years in politics (and, this was during the 19th Century) he grew tired of the corruption and lies and left politics for good.

It appears that not much has changed in over 100 years. To me, that is a rather bitter indictment against the Human race.

'Twould be ironic if the sub-prime crisis turned out to be the saviour of the Republican regime that created it.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
