    Irony - That's what I call the post by Hypocracy. He cries for change, but take a look at the two candidates. They both talk about change, but when it came time to make their first major decision as a Presidential Candidate, they showed their true colors. McCain reconfirmed that he really is the Maverick that we've come to know over the past 30 years. He chose a Washington outsider with a reputation for fighting the established 'good old boy' network.

    Obama? He chose a Washington insider. And a really bad one at that. During the Primaries, Democrats couldn't see fit to even give him 0.2% of the vote. He is an anvil chained to the Obama ticket. First decision = Bad decision.

    To the letter writer's point, I agree in principle. Living up North, I would do about anything to get Rob Bishop out. This do nothing, ride the coattails of Hansen, Partisan Blabbermouth Republican needs to go. But we can't get anyone decent to run against him.

    Thank you Clark, for pointing out why we should all vote for Barrack Obama.

    No longer can we confide in the hot air blown by flip flopper John McCain. He was for deregulation for 20+ years, now all of a sudden he's for regulation. How is he going to "look out for us", as he likes to say, if he doesn't understand the economy? Just on Monday he said that the fundamentals are still good. Uh? On Tuesday he said that government shouldn't bail out companies. Does he not understand what would've happened had we not bailed out AIG?

    John McCain was a POW, that's great. But we don't need any more hot air from him.
    Our country doesn't need anymore big government spending, wars, Republican Economics, lying from the White House, deception, nation building, Bush Policies, empty promises, flip flopping, catering to the rich, and bridges to nowhere.

    Change? What change does McCain possibly offer, when over 8 years he's voted on average, 90 % with Bush policies? Are we really headed into the right direction with 4 more years of Bush?

    Are we really headed in the right direction with 4 more years of hot air?

    The problems that the country faces are far deeper than this election. In my view, both presidential candidates are poor choices, and indicate where we are politically. Brett, there isn't nearly enough room for me to write my suggestions here, but I will make two.

    Pay attention to state and congressional/senate elections, and vote the bums out whenever you get a chance. It is not just the bums in other states, we have plenty of our own. The 3rd CD has already done their part by removing Rep. Cannon. How about the rest of you? Both major parties have their bums that need to go. We do this often enough and we will begin to get control and good representation.

    My other solution is to do nothing until there is total collapse and then perhaps we can rebuild, or fall into anarchy and then dictatorship. It seems that we are unable to do what we need to until there is crisis.

    Clark - Glad to see that you are full of solutions.

    Great help.
