sorry but have to mention politics

Recently, I said that most of this blog would not be devoted to politics. Well, after last night, I have to break that "pledge".

Congrats to the Obama campaign for finally ending this primary process. From the national point of view, this race shows how much we've slipped as a nation. A man with little national experience, who was a community activist who speaks decently (not as great as Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann make him out to be) who happens to be African American and be 6 feet tall with large ears is the Democratic nominee. The Democratic Party was the party of Harry Truman, Warren Magnuson and Scoop Jackson, even Zell Miller. Now it's the party of Harry Reid, Barack Obama and Charles Schumer.

On the Republican side, we have a war hero who has been in Washington for over 20 years and is against free speech, originalist judges and vulnerable to the global warming hoax. The Republican Party was the party of Robert Taft, Barry Goldwater, Jesse Helms and Ronald Reagan. Now it's the party of Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Susan Collins and the country clubbers.

Before I jump in with Chuck Baldwin and the US Constitution Party, I must say that I like the Constitution Party for local offices such as state senator, representative and Governor, even US Senator. However, with their isolationist tendencies, it would be really hard for me to pull the lever for them in November. I will try, but I need to see more and read more from Baldwin and his group.

Of course, I may be put in Cherem (excommunication) for such ideas. Just join Jack(A!@#$%^) Conaty and the Chicago political establishment and vote Democratic early and often. The Chicago Democratic Machine makes Moscow or Warsaw look like Salt Lake City or Birmingham, Alabama.

Well Josh don't write off Chuck Baldwin's presidential campaign. He is the best man running and will have my vote. Put America First with the Constitution Party and Baldwin 2008!

I may vote for him yet. Certainly if McCain picks someone like Huckabee (or Huckaphony) or Crist.

My theory is that the blue-bloods think that all of the Social Conservatives are gonna vote for them no matter what, so let's throw them a couple of bones every now and then and we're fine. We don't have to govern or explain our agenda (whatever that may be).

Summer is finally here.
