Umm ... no? Not really sure what you're asking here.
I did find it interesting that rather than the usual 2 bad choices that
Texans had to choose from for governor, there were 4 bad choices.
Perry (Republican) was re-elected with 39% of the vote. I wonder if it
has crossed his mind yet that 61% of the state, doesn't want him in
office? Two reasons:
1) More toll roads. (I already pay road tax ... what is that used
2) Trans-Texas Corridor. (Environmental nightmare ... and being
constructed by a mexican owned company. Hear that giant sucking sound?
It's our jobs.)
1) FROM fiscal irresponsibility TO fiscal responsibility.
2) FROM sending our jobs overseas TO keeping them here.
3) FROM no environmental policy TO reasonable environmental
4) FROM oil TO alternative energy.
5) FROM religous based decisions (stem cells) TO separation of church
6) FROM war TO peace.
7) FROM status quo TO a world leader in technology and forward
8) FROM being disrespected TO being respected (in the world scene).

Suddenly, without warning, Craig C. exclaimed (10-Nov-06 1:24 AM):
Well, we can hope, but even with the best leadership I doubt #6 will
happen. Too many people out there that hate us now (really need #8).
Even in friendly countries (in which I've been living) the general

My main hopes are #3 and #4. Get #4, we're a long way toward #3 and #6
at a minimum.
However, I doubt things will change for the better just 'cause the Dems
have a majority in Congress just now. And I'm not sure a Democrat
president would be the answer either. Both parties are pretty hopeless
in my opinion, I'd like to see a strong Independent win. We're supposed
to be a multi-party nation, not a two-party nation...
I totally agree. And I'd be *happy* if we got that much within the
Again, totally agree. I wish our choices in elected officials were
better. I *never* feel good when I leave the voting booth. Probably
because instead of voting *for* a candidate, I always seem to be voting
*against* the worse of two evils.
No, Roy, it wasn't the Dems that voted in the liberal minority ( Fox Poll:
USA: 80% Conservative, 20% Liberal) it was the Conservatives that were
(complacent, too busy, "my-vote-doesn't-count", uninterested, unregistered,
or too darn lazy [pick any and all you want])
