The wrong person

In November the wrong person will be elected and we will be cursed with another 4 years of the same old crap. Which one is the wrong one...both.

This election has a Rolaids nature too it. I cannot look at either of the two front runners without feeling as if the air is thick and still like just before the approaching storm.

Hell. Normally I would say that the libertarian candidate is a person to look into, but Bob Barr is NO LIBERTARIAN. The man is a politician who is a supporter of the war on drugs, the marriage act, a person who voted for the patriot act and wanted to ban religions he did not like in the pentagon.

Even my fall back position of libertarian is a dead end.

November is going to be a bad month for this nation.

I have always been proud to be Canadian and that includes being thankful that we do not have the "Right to Bear Arms."
The idea that someone with a gun might have stopped the attack before it became deadly does not cross her sheepish mind.

This letter has me creating a whole new tag/catagory....Sheep
