interview everyone?

That's what opinion polls are for. You don't need to interview everyone.

And just because I'm not running for political office does NOT mean I have peanuts for brains. I can follow current events just like anyone, and when I vote I do it based on issues, and opinions I have based on platforms as presented.

I just don't believe everything the politicians say...... or believe they always make the best judgements for the country. It's not uncommon for a politician to promise one thing and never follow through on it. Take their campaign promises with a grain of salt and pray it doesn't turn out too badly.

Personally as a Canadian I was DISGUSTED with our Prime Minister and some members of his cabinet during the whole war situation. The insults and garbage that they broadcast as the "Canadian opinion" was simply dispicable.

But what can you do? Suck it up and get rid of them next time around.

How many...

How many of 'yall have ever actually been a participant in politics? I mean, have any of you ran for a city office, or something similar? Because way too many people assume, "Oh! It's all corrupt! All politicians are the same!" When that's not true. I'm sick of these whiny little people who never vote, and their only justification is, "Well, I don't agree with any of it." You don't get to whine if you aren't willing to take some action. Sorry, but how else is the country supposed to know your opinion? How else is congress supposed to know what you want? Ya think they have the TIME to interview every single person? Nope!
But yeah, all I'm saying is get involved or shut up.

repub. farmers..

yeah, but republican farmers are the kind of people who cry about their crops failing when they spend thousands of dollars on 2003 ford super duty extended cab trucks and write it off as farm equipment...no prob there right? but then they use those subsidies to get on-star installed in their cab so they dont get lost in their west pasture...and dvd screens so they can watch 8 seconds on the drive back from the rodeo... if these farmers use half the time farming instead of complaining, food would be less of an issue.

sure max

everything will go including food. There are government subsidies for reasons....... There are bad years where crops fail due to acts of god. If there was no assistance to farmers, most would have lost everything and gone out of business years ago.

Problem is we NEED things like wheat and vegtables for FOOD! Therefore people in these occupations need some amount of government assistance during bad years.

Same thing with the fishery in Newfoundland. People depend on it, it's their livlihood. But when there is foreign overfishing, raping of the seas and depleated cod stocks...... what can these people do?

republican farmers

the problem with politics today is... there are just too many republican farmers. they whine to the government about everything. i.e. its too hot, too wet, too cold, too dry....
and then they are always wanting more money from the government. they complain that nothing is right, and then say "but it would be right if you gave us money"
thats the problem with politics... i say F U C K republican farmers and all the problems of the world with dissapear with them.

The drug dealers would suffer?

I don't buy that for a minute. And women can be irrational, just like the men that were mentioned. Putting all women in power wouldn't solve our problems. Along with the sweethearts and goodgirls I know, I've met my fair share of bad girls and evil doers. It's not as black and white as that.

It's not $$ Politicians want it's power

The corporate world, private sector is where the money lies. Therefore in a capitalist society where we all worship the almighty dollar, the best our countries have to offer are lured that way. Towards success, financial gain etc.

Politics does not offer as much financially as the private sector, people are attracted to that field for different reasons. What do politicians have? Power. Power is attractive to the ego. You end up with power hungry, ego swelled mediocre blowhards.

All I want from my politicians is for them to just not screw up anything too bad until their term is up and we vote in another round of blowhards, who tell you want you want to hear while they run around racking up frivilous expense accounts, satisfying their own personal agendas.

Not that I'm bitter or cynical about the process. hahahaha.

"women"... and if i am elected, i will appoint only women to the cabinet and i will do no thinking...trust me america it is better this way...with 13 brillent female minds working on the problems of america, i will be free to tour the globe and make insignifcant public meetings while the state of the nation will increase as im away...my awsome plan: let smart people do stuff for me...

im dead seirous...there is no sarcasm in that statement...i believe women shoudl rule the free world...i know i know, but when it coems that time of the month, terrorist liek saddam and osama, not to mention evil drug lords will feel america's wrath!!
