...but in two weeks I, along with millions of Americans who are sure to be as disgusted with the state of our government as I am, will be dragging our reluctant butts to the nearest polling place.
For months, the liberal-lapdog media has been hammering away relentlessly at Republican "scandals" and "failures" while predicting that the Democrats will sweep into power with ease.
In a way, that would be fine with me. I dislike George Bush intensely, have no patience with his apologists, and am angered by the attempts of the right-wing wackos to jam a narrow-minded, mean-spirited agenda down the throats of Americans.
I am equally disgusted with the way the so-called "war on terror" is being handled, and incensed at the pro-illegal-alien stance of our so-called "lawmakers." They have forgotten that human beings die in wars, that human beings who are, moreover, legal citizens of this country, are losing jobs and footing the bill for the uncontrolled flood of illegals.
That should make me the perfect voter in the Democrats' eyes.
But it does not.
If I was not turned off completely by the shrill, sanctimonious, vengeful, childish tone adopted by Democrat wanna-be congressional leaders such as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and John Conyers, all of whom seem to have as their only goals hounding Bush in his last two years in office and wasting time and money exploring "Republican scandals," I would be totally disenchanted by both their socialistic welfare-state ideas and their determination to jam their narrow-minded, mean-spirited agenda down the throats of Americans.
And what vision do they offer? "We wouldn't have done this or that if we had known," "we have new ideas," "we won't do things the way the Republicans do." They just haven't bothered to mention any specifics....
I have no doubt at all that their calls to "open a dialogue" with North Korea, their determination to bail out of Iraq, their willingness to kowtow to the United Nations and try to "negotiate" with Iran will make the international situation worse than it is now, inconceivable as that might seem.
And it is obvious to anyone who hasn't fallen for the work of the lefty propaganda machine headed by the New York Times and CNN that the Democrats can go toe-to-toe with the Republicans, scandal-wise. Think Harry Reid. Think Rep. William Jefferson. Look back in his history and think Alcee Hastings. And of course think of Teddy Kennedy: murderer, alcoholic and "moral authority." You want sex scandals? The Democrats have got that covered, too -- think Barney Frank and the late Gerry Studds -- though they are far better at worming out of responsibility for them.
In short, my prediction for the upcoming elections is this: no matter which side emerges holding power in Washington, we lose.
With that in mind, my prime reason for voting is to help to defeat ten California bond and tax measures that will create hundreds of billions of dollars in new debt for the state and its citizens. Of course that makes me anti-roads, anti-schools, anti-health and anti-"new energy sources," but I can live with that, since no one has yet come up with an honest answer to one simple question: what is the government doing with the billions in taxes and bond money it has already taken in for these purposes?
Democracy at work? More like knaves and fools at work, if you ask me.
