WHO'S DRIVING THIS BUS? pt. II

Everyone knows that Cheney already has the power; he just needs it on paper. Bush THINKS he's running it, but he's just a figurehead and puppet; he's so stupid that he is easy for his handlers to guide and manipulate him. He struts about, throwing his weight around and they kow-tow to him to maintain the illusion.

For a good take on Frist re: Granny's post below, check out our blogger friend's blog http://hatestheright.blogspot.com , scroll down to his Mar.03 post "Preemptive Strike on Frist." Good post. On your way down, you might pause at his "Democratic Leadership Cowards" post. Right on target.

I think one reason why the Democrats are so gutless and spineless is 1) too many of them are in bed with Bushco and the megacorps, and 2) some are too scared to stand against them (Bushco have their ways of dealing with uncooperative people). Those few who do have the courage to stand against the outrages in our government deserve all our support.

I don't know who we can vote for. Some of the potential candidates are secretly clones of the incumbents and business will merely go on as usual. Our choice will be to choose "this rotten apple or that rotten apple."

    The lesser of two evils is still evil. We need to start a party to elect average citizens (the intention of our founding fathers) and stop pinning our hopes on these jackanapes.

    yes we do, Lew, but the campaigning system has gotten so dependent on the media to garner votes that independents cannot build a big enough war chest to compete against the "big boys". And even they depend heavily on hefty campaign contributions in order to afford the expenses of a campaign. It has become a system that favors the rich and powerful or those whom the rich and powerful favor.

    I have to agree with you, Action. If a candidate isn't independently wealthy or have like-minded backers, he or she must accept contributions and when the rich or the corporations contribute heavily, they feel they have bought themselves a politician, and usually they have.
